$50 and uniqueness do not mix well.

Well first off the briefcase is out, anything decent is going to be at least $250 possibly $400+, we just got one for my brother in law from the coach outlet for about $350...

The gift cert seems like a good idea, possibly take her out to celebrate to a nice dinner...

you could get her an engraved pen with her name or something..

also lola is right with the tiffany's idea, my wife used to say she hated tiffanies but I got her a little trinket from there anyway and now she wears it all the time.

good luck

I think all you can get for $50 IS the little blue box.
