I have a friend from HS that has been doing my little families pictures for a few years now. She does an outstanding job and never charges us, so we always try and give her a care basket, giftcard, etc. I would like to do something unique to do for her(and her fiance), but just can't think of anything. I'd prefer to spend anywhere from 50-150, any ideas are greatly appreciated.

You could look for unique props to give her for photography.

Personally, I like handmade pottery. A big bowl or platter that's pretty enough to display would be great.

Do they drink wine? A wine tour might be welcome, as a couple thing for them to do:

Grapevine Wine Tours - Gift Certificates

Thanks for the ideas everyone, keep them coming!

She's a 28 year old and lives an apartment...if that helps with some ideas.

I just floated - It's kinda cool. There are a few float spas around DFW. I went to Adrift and they have couples packages. They could float, then go eat at True Food.

Dude Sweet Chocolate is always unique.

Maybe a private cirque lesson at Cirque Fit - for both of them.

That's tough- you hate to give someone something you aren't sure they will like, hence the giftcard. Is a donation to her favorite charity cheesy? I have done that a few times and the honoree has always been very pleased.

gift card for B/B in area?
maybe FTW so they could feel like it was more vacation?
Stockyard Hotel might be doable and in Sundance Square there is Etta's place

Doe she like to go to the arboretum? I think if she's a photographer, she might - maybe a membership there? Gift cards for dinner or Sprinkles, or the movie theater. My daughter is a ballerina and has been to the Adrift spa like Pepper mentioned above and really liked it.

I REALLY like this idea. I just need to figure out if she already has one or not.
