The fruit is pre cut then soaked in a weird chemical solution.


Is that true? I had an Edible Arrangements once (a long time ago) and I don't remember it being bad.

Just get a pre-paid visa card and tuck it in a cute Hallmark thank-you card.

It shows you're grateful but you aren't 'into' her.


Yeah pre-paid visa is good you can use them just about everywhere.

A gift card to the movies or a local restaurant they like would be a nice gift.
A Starbucks gift card would also be a good idea.
Been a murder, over in Riften. Some old lady who runs an orphanage. Those poor children must be heartbroken.

Make sure they actually like Starbucks and/or coffee first. Not everyone is a coffee drinker. I'm not.

True but they also have tea, iced tea, smoothies and pastries.

I suppose, but Starbucks isn't really known for their tea and pastries. People go there for the coffee. A non-coffee drinker likely doesn't ever go to Starbucks. I can honestly say I have never been to a Starbucks.

Going to Starbucks for tea is kind of like going to a pizza restaurant for a hamburger.

I guess you can ask whether she likes coffee.
My husband doesn't drink coffee so when a group of us go together he usually gets a Vanilla Bean Frappuccino because it doesn't contain any coffee.

All depends on how much thought and genuine thanks goes into that gift basket imo. If done right it can be an amazing way of saying thank you
Paper Mario (N64) is a masterpiece.
