Default Mrs Birthday - Help.

I have 6 hours to get the Mrs a present before I go home. This is Doha not Dubai so choices are limited to Lulu.............

I cant get her, Watch, Handbag, Necklace, Earings, Ring, Bracelet as she has had these things. She has mentioned a laptop, though she uses her Ipad.

I know she would love some louboutins but I have spent way too much lately and it means driving to Doha's equivalent of Meadowhell - Villaggio.

Any ideas please?? - And she doesn't do sport.

Drive to The Mall on the D Ring . Inside there's a Mac shop opposite Hugo Boss , splash out on a nice little Mac Air then cross the center to Salam and pitch for a classic bottle of Channel No 5

More than enough get out of the doghouse tokens in that.....

Personally i'd have gone Jo Malone / Louboutin....

So sad, but if she's into cooking - a fab Kitchen Aid or Le Creuset dish. Or L'Occitane, their honey range of products are lovely. I received a box of shower gel, hand cream, body lotion and scrub which are just delicious.

Some smart earrings or a pearl ring?

Sounding good to me, Stick to D-Ring and no need to detour on way home.

She would not get the pan idea. I think it's a good idea and something that will last. Did necklace and rings already this month for wedding. Really as they were a surprise I should of stated they were an early present..........

Lube and a king size pack of rubbers.

Flowers. Get some regardless.

Mont Blanc is a good idea from the suddenly metrosexual and feminine-aware CDB!

Get the red bottomed shoes - they're pricey but a standalone gift that'll blow her mind I expect.

Then use the first gift and last gift together, with her touching her toes and you get a present too.
