    I'm guessing she has an IPod or something similar, so how about a decent set of audiobooks? I just discovered their awesomeness and convenience (been listening to Sherlock Holmes Canon lately), and I'd recommend them (audio books in general, that is) to anyone.

    You could go either good fiction or some educational books. Something she'd appreciate.

    A common mistake that people make when trying to design something completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete fools.

    You could do an affordable point and shoot digital camera, and get her a gift card to someplace she shops often. A gift card is always better than just straight money, because it shows you know what she's interested in even if you aren't sure exactly what to get.

    Best Buy seems to have a few good digital cameras that don't cost too much:

    If left to herself at home, she'll watch TV, or sleep for hours on end. She has always had goals of making something of herslef and is very driven in that regard.
    Singing? There's this thing called iKaraoke that you hook up to your iPod and it cancels out the lead vocals so you can sing to all your songs. I've never tried it so I can't say whether it's any good but you can always read some reviews.

    I like Audio books. She somehow doesn't seem to be Karaoke type.

    So: a) Cash b) Gift Card, c) Camera d) Audio Books

    I am not perfect and I defy you to prove otherwise

    A and B are basically the same. You can just put cash on a Visa gift card and she can use it as an atm/debit card. Its even rechargeable. As far as putting money on it. If you go with a camera get a Canon PowerShot SD1200 IS Its a great product plus you help my profit sharing when you get our stuff. Plus there is a mail and rebate for it.

    Camera looks nice, but I have to get this by Sunday. I could go to Best Buy, wonder if the Rebate and stuff will apply if bought at the store as opposed to online.

    Guess I'll have to check and see.

    What is the downside to Model: A1100IS
    It's cheaper?
