Men..Gift Ideas Please??
 
First o all.. if this thread is in the wrong place.. sorry.. just fig its more general... :msnnerd:

Ok.. my husband has his bday comin up in abt 2 weeks and im sooooo confused as to what to buy him and I need a mans perspective... he loves gadgets BUT the man has it all!! :eek: He has a brand new laptop, an ipod like archos which he's obsessed with, we have a beamer AND tv, ofcourse the xbox360 premium with all the games etc, a great nikon cam, handycam... whats left!!??:msnsarcastic:

All i can think of is a little suprise dinner with the family, 2 tickets for lauryn hill (he loves her), membership for a year at the new gym, pool n spa @ sihlcity and a sunflower (his fav flower)! :rolleyes:

Its his last year in his 20's and I wanna make it extra special... I want to give him a gizmo cuz that brings the biggest smile on his face!! Men what would u want for a gift!!?? And remember its coming from the better half so no bottle o wine(he has them all), no perfume etc

ps.. know of any miraculous wonderful shaver or razor that keeps the stubble off for 12 hours atleast?? :D

Thanks already!!! :)

I do not know if he is into cars, but something special would be to rent a Ferrari for a day or so? That is, if there's not one sitting in your garage.

Personally I appreciate something immaterial or at least easily disposable.

There's a programme on UK called The Gadget Show full of big boy toys. This might give you some ideas:

"Once installed on your PC or Laptop a radar screen will appear on your screen from which the launcher is controlled. Either click the mouse on the direction tabs, or simply use the arrow keys on your keyboard to adjust the direction and height that each missile will be launched at! The Missile Launcher will also generate an incredible noise through your computerís speakers, when firing."

Toptastic :D

Hi

These are really inexpensive and are great fun :D

You can buy them in ToysRUs and all over the place in Switzerland. Maybe not the main present, but a great little gadget.

What about a nice Rundflug in a Piper Arrow over the Swiss Alps?

http://www.fliegen.ch/rundflug/rdfprospekt/rdf00.html

This is from Grenchen airport, but other GA (general aviation) airports offer it as well.

Should be fun. That's how I got hooked on flying in 1999 ...
