Help-List, what to buy on birthday

I'm not so sure what I'm going to buy to my best friend, she'll have a party on Saturday, and the only possibility for me to buy something is tomorrow, so I've to plan now what I'm going to buy. I live in a really small town, so there isn't a big offer of things to buy, but you can always find something. My friend is turning eighteen. That's a big and an important age in Sweden, it's like the age 16 in the US. But anyways, here's a list of things you can think of, and which I'm going to think of when I'm buying the present(s):

image Think of his/hers personality. A personal gift is always the most special ones and the most appreciated.
image Is there something specific she or he needs/wants? It means a lot when you notice your friend or beloved one listens to you, even though it's something you've named once, or twice.
image Be creative. Creative gifts stands out from the crowd, also, being creative doesn't mean you have to have a lot of money. You could go to a second hand store and buy a beautiful vase or bowl and fill it with her favorite candy, or bake something nice. Or give flower seeds. Think outside the box! A birthday is a fun-day also!
image If you haven't any clue of what to buy, and if you don't know the person that well: buy for an example some beauty products, or maybe a gift card. Gift cards always works. But I wouldn't recommend a gift card if you know the person well, because it isn't so personal, if the person didn't ask for it.
image  Remeber: The gift isn't the most important thing, the most important thing is that you dedicate your thoughts and love to the birthday person. This list goes for all ages, and for all genders.

I'm thinking of buying a pair of bowls, fill it with candy. Bake some cupcakes, and buy a jewerly or a sculpture, or both! ^^ We'll see tomorrow. Also I forgot to add to the list: package the gift cutely! Photo sources:
