Hi TulipGirl,
My brother is a little hard to by for because he always says, "No presents, don't buy me anything. I don't want anything that takes up space."

Of course I have to buy my brother something! I love him way too much to pass him by. So, I usually buy him an 'experience.' This has ranged from a kayak on the harbour, to tickets to see jimeoin perform, or tickets for concerts.

He also likes things handmade by my children. So, I have often transfered some of their paintings on to T-shirts, or calico bags, and have given these to him as presents. He likes the personalised element of these gifts.

Oh! I know a lot of single guys who would love to get a chick as a present. That suggestion was great! Heh heh!

In our materialistic world where most people don't need any more gifts, thankfully there are several charities that you can buy from (our fave is a toilet for families in various African countries) & you give a card with the words "I bought a goat/chickens/clean water/toilet/literacy materials for a family in (country name) for you this Christmas".

A toilet in Africa!

That's perf! We have a family member who has recently reached millionaire status. Definitely hard to buy for. A toity in Africa would be perfect. Definitely something he doesn't already have. *eg*

This is tonia from www.lifeinthefire.blogspot.com. I was just browsing your site, which is rather enjoyable. I'll be back (to be read with Arnold S. accent).

I'm glad I wasn't drinking anything when I clicked on the QF gift link. :)

Speaking for single guys everywhere, I can assure you that one well-chosen chick would be a sufficiently generous gift. In fact a lot of us have our doubts about really knowing what to do with even one.

What in the world is QF?

I cannot even BEGIN to imagine!

Posted by: Nate at December 12, 2005 10:46 PM

The QF one cracked me up too! LOL, not what I was expecting.

So when my husband goes to Amazon and notices my recently viewed items, he is going to get the wrong idea...

QF = Quiver Full = No Birth Control b/c of Personal Spiritual Conviction

Posted by: TulipGirl at December 13, 2005 09:36 PM

Quiver Full!!!!!

I get it it! (My lovely wife told me.)

Speaking of toilets, how about one of these for the outdoorsman in your life? :-)

Posted by: Missy at December 14, 2005 11:53 AM

Missy, how biodegradeable are those bags/containers? Did the inventors think about that? Not much use in 3rd world situations.

Re: the massager, why not splurge and get the motorized version: http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg/detail/-/B0002KWV4Q/103-3252583-8071865?v=glance&s=hpc&n=3760931 ?

Re: the KY, I'd say I was holding out for the 1-pounder, but I've heard Astroglide is the way to go. *grin*

Posted by: Maggie at December 16, 2005 05:50 AM

How about this for the MAJOR Trekkie?


Posted by: Maggie at December 16, 2005 06:46 PM

Marion, I think the toilets I referred to do not come with a bag. You have to provide your own bag or bucket.

I was only trying to have a little fun. You'll have to excuse me. I don't get out much. :-) Your suggestion was much better than mine.

Posted by: Missy at December 17, 2005 08:22 PM

hehe. I am *so* all about the Poe action figure. Edgar never did look so good as that, I'm sure!

'sides, he'd freak out all my G. I. Joes...
