Who needs gift ideas?
It's always been a weird talent of mine. . . finding gifts for other people. I'm especially good with kids' stuff. So, anyone?
Yes please, although not for kids.
I'm always stumped by my brother-in-law. And it doesn't help that his birthday is 30 December.
By profession, he's a computer guy but he's moved up into management/director level working mostly with information/network security. He mostly works from home and seems to spend most of his days in teleconferences. He's not into sports or outdoors type stuff. He keeps fish (freshwater) and grows plants (indoors...must be nontoxic to cats), does some amateur photography and recently decided to teach himself how to pick locks. The thing is, he's got most of the gear he needs for his hobbies. And he tends to buy the few things that he does want. We've tried to explain the idea that you put things on the Amazon wishlist and then you DON'T buy them between Thanksgiving and Christmas. He gets the first part...no so much the second part.
So, yeah, any help would be great.read more collapse
@pattiq: What about a nice luggage set? That would be helpful on the trip and also for travel later on, particularly if she gets a job away from home and has to fly to visit family. Something like a rolling carryon and matching larger bag to check might be nice.
In a similar vein, I got a nice shoulder bag/briefcase type bag when I graduated from college. I used that as my work bag for a number of years (until I had knee surgery, was on crutches for a while, switched to a backpack and never went back). It was nice to have something professional to take to my first job.
Does she already have a passport? If not, paying for that might be a welcome gift. They're not terribly cheap and would definitely be used.
Is she going to be living in an apartment after she finds a job? What about some nice pots/pans/kitchen gear/plates/silverware/knives/etc? I got a set of nice pans (not top of the line but nice) when I graduated from college. I still use them regularly.read more collapse
How about a graduating college student? Girl that majored in social work. She is serious with a several year relationship. She is job hunting. Mom is taking her to the Dominican Republic for graduation. Looking for two nice gifts or one nicer one. She is a bit sassy but overall a good kid. Grandparents are also looking for a gift she would like.read more collapse
