    To all LPSG members:

    Do you have any gift ideas for a close male friend
    of mine who turns 40 in a couple of months?

    I want to send him something meaningful. I know
    what he likes, but I'm still stumped. Do you have
    any suggestions?

    Thanks for your help.

    Titan

    How about a Porsche 911-GT3-RS? That would be very meaningful!:biggrin1:

    Just kidding! I can't really help you. I am not good with gifts at all...

    Give him all that you have including money and personal posessions.

    Since you know what he likes why are you stumped? Just get him some things he likes.

    Penis cast? I mean, it fits with the site's theme and all...

    Titan, how much do you want to spend (or what's the cap--because I doubt you'll be purchasing a remote island for your pal) and what are a few things he likes? Is he sentimental? A techno-geek? A furry? An average dude?

    That would help in picking out stuff for him. At least, it would help me in shopping for he whom I've not met.

    I consider myself to be an amazing gift giver. However I have to know the person. As for myself. My birthday is always painful. I love a few gifts but it is not the price of them...it is that someone understood I would like it. If I love chocolate...and I do...and we talked about it one time...and then the person got me some unusual chocolate maybe from online. I would understand the effort plus we could share a piece. So I would ask you what is it he likes that might take you some effort but it would wow him on some personal level? I also think a well written note that says how much you care for him...I mean a heart felt note can really be nice too...along with a gift. If I am the only person making over the birthday person then I really try to get maybe a small item and then a larger one. I want them to feel they are having an entire event...so yes, I would make a cake too. Don't worry if the look of it sucks...it will be amazing that you went through the paces with time and effort.

    My friends pitched in and got me a bottle of Penfold's Grange Shiraz. Pricey, but a good investment bottle. Lay it down and enjoy on another birthday.

    Another thing, I like leather gear. No, not chaps and stuff. I mean a nice Coach laptop case or coach saddle bags.

    I tend to be the high dollar type so if you have a price range, that might help?

    If you like the wine idea, let me know, I can reccommend some great bottles of wine.

    Gold membership at LPSG of course!

    Honestly, what Cube said is the ideal. Get him something that shows you cared enough to remember his tastes.
