My close friend is turning 17 soon and I wanted to do something special for her birthday. I decided to get her little gifts, 17 of them. The first would be one item, the second would be two, and so on.

So far I have:

1-cupcake

7-

8-

9-

10-dollars

11-

12-cookies

14-

15-photos of our past

16-candles

17-balloons

I need help figuring out what else to get her!!! Please help me come up with creative ideas that can keep me under my budget (not too much).

    Good idea, although one of each item might also be enough if it gets too expensive. Also, wouldn't you want to switch 16 & 17 so that it would be 17 candles?

    Other ideas:

    beach towel

    sunhat

    paperback books

    ceramic knick knacks (bric a brac)

    dinner bell

    2 coffee mugs for a friend & her

    pens, pencils, erasers, & other school & office supplies

    puzzle magazines

    colorful clothes hangers

    seashells

    items from a craft store

    Might also try a thrift shop, a dollar store, the party favor rack at a party store, & discount or outlet stores such as Big Lots.

    Get her gifts with a beach theme. Put everything into a beach bag. Get her a towel, sunscreen, lotion, lip gloss, flip-flops, journal, sun glasses, key chain (palm tree, flip-flop), make-up, cell phone case, water bottle, swim suit cover.
