Birthday gift idea

I am really in a hurry and don't have time to write a big post. Tomorrow evening I have to attend a birthday party and I still haven't got a gift. Actually it is my colleague's birthday and I could not figure out what to give her. I am thinking of giving her a photoframe or handbag. I know it's very traditional but I can't think of anything else. Can anyone please help me with some unque birthday gift idea?
