5. You can find inexpensive earrings online everywhere and they'll ship them!
I guess it depends on your budget though.

What does SHE like? What is she interested in?

14. If you're willing to spend $50+ for a teddy bear, why not help save a species, too?

20. Have you asked her friends if she's been talking about anything recently?
