So one of my closest friends is just starting college this year. Money is really tight for her; for the longest time she wasn't sure if she would be able to afford her classes and she's living at home still so she doesn't have to pay for room/board. She was also feeling really guilty about not being able to afford to send me a birthday present, which honestly I didn't really care about whatsoever.

This is important because she's indirectly told me that she's doesn't really expect me to give her anything for her birthday, which is coming up in a month or so, simply because she didn't get anything for me. But she's my friend and I still want to give her something.

I know she would feel bad about receiving something big, or something that looks expensive, so I'm looking for smaller/inexpensive gift ideas so she'll enjoy it without feeling guilty.

She's very artistic and loves animals (especially cats). In the past I've sent her a modified knitting needle roll to hold pencils, art supplies, a crocheted cat, a hat with cat ears, a Longcat scarf... I'm sort of out of ideas at this point! I was thinking maybe something she could use at school, or for her drive there, but I'm still drawing a blank.

Any ideas? Huh

I have a cat shaped biscuit cutter, and I once used it to make made some cat shaped cookies for a friend -that went down very well.

Or how making her about a mix CD to listen to on the way to college?

If she actually has a cat....... store bought cat toys can be incredibly expensive, but very easy to make..... you can easily make little cat pillows or toys out of leftover cloth or felt - catnip is also pretty cheap to give the toys a little something extra....
