    Default GIFT GIVING GUIDE FOR THE HARD TO BUY

    I thought it would be a cool idea to list the ages & info & price range we have on those hard to buy for....and get comments from other twelevers...with this many creative minds on this forum...i really think we can come up with a great gift giving guide....
    Also...many of us are more than forum friends...also list if you were to get a specific twelever a gift for christmas...what would you get them and why? not that you could actually do that..and keep it to a $20 or under gift for the twelever idea...

    for any gift idea used...i suggest donating twollars to that person...amount at your discretion...after all its the thought that counts

    LETS KEEP THIS GOIN !!

    peace ~ holli

    Holli,

    For the purse loving, artistic teen - How about a bunch of grosgrain ribbon and placemats? I know it sounds weird but there is a lucrative business here of people who have made simple handbags by folding placemats in half and sewing them up! They put trim around the top (beaded, furry, fethery, whatever) and use a grosgrain ribbon for a handle. They're great fun to make if you're artistically inclined, and b/c they're so cheap to make, you can have loads of different patterns.

    For the 17 yr old I'd probably buy him a wide variety of CD's - stuff he probably wouldn't choose but that you really like - b/c if he really loves music then he'd appreciate it all. And if it's Matthew, then he's cool enough to like the fact that it was spcifically chosen b/c you like that music.

    For the 12 yr old girl, I'd get her art supplies. Not kiddy junk, but real, grownup, express-yourself with the right tools stuff. Try Binders for help there.

    For the 14 yr old girl, how about a "Think Pink" box? Get her a pink journal, some pink nail polish, a fluffy pink pen, etc. Wrap it up in a pink treasure box she can keep in her room.


    Thinking outside the norm - no costs, just dreams:

    for Brady I'd get a roundtrip airplane ticket so he could visit his family again; for LadyHope I'd get a working computer; for Dreamer I'd get a new set of weights; for Gabi I'd get a painting of Spain for her windowless office; for Netsirk I'd get a Quick Quills pen from Harry Potter so she didn't have to write all those thank you notes next year after her wedding; for MPowers I'd get camera equipment that actually captured the beauty of Brazil; for Nodon I'd get an audience with a publisher and the movie Braveheart; for CThree I'd get redundant servers, an agent, and a t-shirt that says "I LOVE LIFE"; for Mimi, Holli, and Dragon, I'd get the Guardian Amulet prize and an extremely large case of champagne; for Sue I'd get a new waffle maker and a ton of bacon; for astreeturover I'd get a hawk; for Lafitte, Elecht, and SSlug, I'd get tickets to a comedy club; for Solarus I'd get a sweatshirt from the brainiac college he'll attend; for Nitey I'd get a soundproof room, just b/c I'd bet he could make use of it; for Lizardlips, a warm welcome home.

    Will continue to think of others as I can -

    Carol

    May I suggest any of the following:

    Albums:
    Continuum by John Mayer
    Corrinne Bailey Rae (Self Titled Album)
    Eyes Open by Snow Patrol

    Any book of poetry by Pablo Neruda (make sure it's translated to English! He was a Chilean poet who won the Nobel Prize)

    The DVD, O Brother, Where Art Thou
