I need ideas for a Christmas gift.  It's for a 32-year old female friend.  She works for an opera company doing fundraising and is a former singer and ballet dancer.  She is an avid runner and has completed several marathons.  She was also a bridesmaid in my wedding.

I crochet.  I'd like to keep it $30 or less, not including my time.  Unfortunately, I'm a bit squeezed on time until Dec. 5 because of grad school papers.  That puts a slight damper on crocheting.

I thought about digital scrapbooking, but I don't have that many photos of us together that aren't from my wedding.  Would that be too self-centered to send her an album of those pics?

I'm already going to include homemade cookies as part of the gift, so what I need help with is the other "half."

I'm open to crafting, store bought, or buying crafted gifts.  In the past, I have bought her wine, gourmet teas, bath products, and candles.

Well, what I would do is make something that'd compliment the cookies, like cocoa mix in a jar. Try something like this: http://www.christmas-cookies.com/recipes/recipe368.laurashotcocoamix.html
Then put your cookies and the cocoa mix in a nice basket and you're set! Hope that helps!
