Have you got any gift ideas?
Yes, I know, these are not the best type of questions. But this is a moderately special circumstance. My best friend has been wanting a tablet for a while now, so I had been planning all year to get him one for his birthday last weekend. Since he reads a lot, I thought a Nook would be a good choice. I guess great minds think alike as his sister got him a Kindle, and gave it to him the day before his birthday. I was so excited to have gotten him the perfect gift and got totally punked. Since he'd already opened the Kindle, he decided to keep it, so now I am back on the hook for a gift. I had been planning to get the tablet, so I haven't been looking at anything else. I have about $150 to spend. He is 59, retired, owns his own home. He likes sci-fi, history, etc. He doesn't play board or online games. He's well stocked in tools and entertainment electronics. I'd like to get him a single, non-consumable item rather than a bunch of miscellaneous stuff. I welcome your ideas.
