I'd want a gift card to my favorite quilt store!

I agree with 117becca. You can't go wrong with a gift card to a local quilt shop or fabric store.

Gift card would be what I would want the most...that way I could buy what I really want/need. Unless the shop owner would know a person well enough to know exactly what they would want, it would be hard to buy something for someone that is a quilter. They probably have all the tools they need, and would prefer to pick out fabric themselves. Maybe a book if it was brand new, but even then, the person may or may not want that book. Safest would be the gift card, maybe with a charm pack of fabric if you want to give something else.

We have a church that asks us each year in July what we want. I've been giving them EXACT things I'd like. This year I asked for one of two bargello books and yes, I got one of them! I'm so pleased. I provided links to Amazon and it worked great.

But if I lived in the states a gift card would work just as well, or cash in an envelope as well.
