So here's some things to give ideas to him or anyone else who is interested:
interesting jewelry, stuff that's different or unique
posters, esp. of movies that I like
Sandman, esp. Delirium stuff
fun math things, like funny t-shirts or things
red vs blue
invader zim, esp. Gir
I miss Australia.
Coupon books are fun cause they are homemade and personalized. Of course, if the person who receives it never uses the coupons then it might not be as fun...
I always liked the idea of little, random, fun or useful, inexpensive things, one for each year I was born, or something like that. This one can be a lot of fun and much more meaningful, too. Sometimes it's hard to find 22 things that are all cheap enough, though, so it wouldn't have to be one for each year.
I've been kind of wanting to read a few books that I really loved in high school for no good reason except that they were good books...The Late Great Me by Sandra Scoppettone, and Daddy Long Legs by Jean Webster.
And of course there's always the standard, never-fail, Hot Topic anything. I have a Wish List for there. I also have one at Amazon.com. (If that link doesn't work just search under my full name, you'll find it.)
So yeah, hopefully that will give anyone who isn't sure some ideas.
