A teammate gave me a nice and expensive gift (a tennis dress). I want to reciprocate with a nice tennis gift at Christmas. My budget is $100-$125. Here's what I know. She already has two fairly new rackets (Puredrives). She takes lessons at her club. She loves to watch tennis and attend pro tournaments. I was thinking of putting together a little variety pack of strings. Maybe a pack of Versus gut, and a bunch of other strings you guys suggest. I know that she once strung her racket with gut, but she didn't like it because the strings became loose very quickly. This makes me think the problem was the string job or the string, but maybe I shouldn't go down this road of suggesting that she try a better gut or a hybrid string job just because I like gut. I could get her a nice tennis jacket, but I haven't seen anything on the market that is really special. I could get her tix to Legg Mason when it comes to town again. Yawn. The league gives out free tix, so how special is that? I could give her a gift certificate for a couple of lessons at her club. I dunno. That doesn't feel very special. Any other ideas? What do you think of the variety pack of strings idea?
