There's always something - you know she loves cooking. That'll get you a gift. Is it cooking or baking or both and how much do you want to spend?

I know you don't care for the gift card route, but one for spa services is usually good. I have loved receiving a massage or Mani-pedi gift card.

Or since she loves to cook, how about a cooking class? That is more personalized and could be fun. Or an apron. They seem to be a trend right now and you can find some really cute ones. Or even make it.

Fifteen dollars?

Oh. Hmm. That's a bit harder. At fifteen bucks I'd maybe just go with a couple of mugs. Even if she doesn't love them, she can use them for company or regift them.

A really nice box of chocolates or some nice coffee . Keep it simple. Since wine is out, chocolate or coffee.

How about something from Bath & Body works. I remember getting lotion from my husbands family members at my Bridal shower whom I barely knew.

When I drink I find its easier to watch my children because I see all 3 of them double, so all 6 of them of them take all my attention

I would never get anyone a certificate for a massage if I didn't know they liked them. I don't want strangers touching me!

Why did the OP edit out the post and all subsequent posts? It doesn't sound like anything was out of line.

I hate when people do this.

I think you hit the nail on the head. A troll post.

The original post was about finding a gift for a boyfriends sister. She doesn't like wine,she loves to cook, and she wanted to get her a gift. She had a 15 dollar budget to spend on the gift. Nothing seemed sinister at all.

Well that's certainly racy and controversial.
