    Graduation Present/ birthday present ideas.

    Ok so my brother is graduating highschool. And turns 18 the month before. Now my dad and i are taking him to a stripclub for his birthday. But like not sure what to get him for a present. He doesnt smoke or anything like that. He's into driving his truck, chasing ladies, snowboarding, surfing. Thought bout getting him a new backpack for college. Like a chrome bag. Or some type of messenger bag, and a few hats or a jacket.

    I want to put a spending limit at 400$

    Tools are not an option cause we basically have a full working garage.

    What are some of your ideas?

    a good watch, i.e. a "seiko samurai" available for 328$ from this extremely reliable seller in Japan. Chances are it will last longer than anything else you get him. I still have a Seiko given to me 25 years ago.

    click pic for link.

    My first thought: ditch the strip club idea. At an absolute minimum, having Dad along seems just a tad . . . creepy . . . to me.

    Botto's watch idea sounds like a winner, though. Everytime he looks to see what time it is, he'll think of you.






    Oh my God, I'm agreeing with Botto. Nooooooooooooooooooo . . . .

    Save the money you are going to spend on the strip club and put it toghether with the 400 you are planning to spend on a gift ... get a bit more money toghether..and send him with a backpack to northern europe for a the summer as to an exchange family... lots to do and cheap places to for students.. he will have a great time !!! That is .. if he catches the girls once he chases them!!! Can think of Holland , Germany Denmark sweden or norway... They seem expensive but lots of free stuff to do in summer like concerts parties etc etc... (also excelent cycling facilities)
