Gift giving dilemma
Posted by: DaviDC.
Date: December 13, 2005 10:54AM
I have a friend who has been a god-send since moving into my house. He has every tool known to man & gets off on fixing things. The number of projects this guy has helped me with in the past couple of months is amazing & I want to get something special for him for Xmas, but am at a complete loss as to what that might be.

He's a die-hard PC user, but I don't hold that against him. Money is limited & a Home Depot gift card seems so impersonal.

Let the suggestions begin!

you let a die-hard PC user move into your house, what were you thinking?

have you tried dropping some hints/catalogs around the house and see what he is looking at? when you say budget is limited, what do you mean?

Maybe the reason he has a PC is because he loves fixing things. smiling smiley

No hookers you would bring home to mom would. Unless your mom is a hooker.

Mission accomplished! I got a 4x racheting screwdriver from CyberGuys, a gel mouse pad (because he envies mine) & will round it out with a Starbucks gift card.

As for gift cards, I like 'em a whole lot. He's a big Starbucks fan & buys whole beans to grind himself, so this way he can get exactly what he wants.

I hear that in some areas, hookers now accept debit cards!
