What size is she?
I have a Haglofs synthetic insulated jacket to sell.
But also some base layers that are in a pile to go to the charity shop as I no longer wear them (good condition). These would go to a good home in return for a small donation to my MR team.
I'm afraid I'm a 12, Paul
Base layers wouldn't be any good either as they'll be too loose on her. You may need to take her on a spree! TKMaxx is a great place for bargain finding.
Paul, do remember when buying her the sleeping bag women tend to "sleep colder" than us blokes, so i'd be inclined to go for a 3 season bag, she can always vent it if too hot, but if she ends up cold it could spoil a lifetime of romantic nights under canvas*.
*More likely silnylon but how unromantic does that sound.

If she is that small have a look at kids' gear - often cheaper than adults'. Size 11/12 or 13/14 is similar to 6.
And a lot of stuff from 'cheaper' brands is very acceptable to get started with- Trespass and Campri for example. Check out the Field and Trek website where they have a more or less permanent sale.
