How very kind you all are to give your time (and great suggestions) to help. My niece eats out al the time. She lives around 7 hours away. I'd love to give experiences to her, but without a wheelchair van excursions become a trial or extremely expensive. I normally spend around $20 per kid, but her income is very limited so I'd happily spend more. She had an Ipod when she was in college. It took months and months to make modifications so she could use it, and it only lasted a few months. She seems to like getting things just once... I bought her some jewelry one year without clasps or anything- elastic thread rather than string, etc. It was a huge hit... once. Her parents had gotten her gold jewelry but she was never comfortable with it. Not only was it impossible to put on and take off my herself, but it made her a target. Disabled as she is, she tries hard not to do/wear anything splashy. I'm more than up for making or buying something for her. I crochet well. She watches tv, movies mean taking 2 trains and 2 elevators, so she doesn't often go. I tried cologne one year. I repackaged it into a spray bottle with a large handle. It sprayed wonderfully well, but she couldn't hold it still enough not to spray her eyes. I don't know what she'd consider pretty things. Her shoes are special, because they have to work with her braces for her to be able to transfer. Home decor or Amazon sound great. The Bose does too, but I can't fit that into my budget. I might speak with parents about that- they have a hard time with ideas as well. She wants nothing for her wheelchair- so emphatically I didn't dare ask why. I suspect it's a reminder of how differently she would choose to live. Her mom and dad struggle with gift ideas every year. It sounds as though I should go with Amazon, Audible or perhaps restaurant certificates. Thanks again for all the great ideas, very helpful!
