Need gift idea

  1. For a dude, for Christmas. (Trying to plan ahead, here)

    He is an engineer, nerdy type... into electronics and militaristic stuff... (can you feel the testosterone?)

    Any ideas?

    How about a nice pocket protector?

    Alright, he's not that much of a nerd.

    Seriously, I need ideas! You gotta help a sista out.

    Radio Shack bucks? The latest pocket PC program? A subscription to Urban Warrior? Script for a local paint ball place? A new gun catalog?

    Those types usually like things for their computers. How about an mp3 player or a pda? But perhaps you're looking for a less expensive gift...

    I think you should get him one of those remote car starters. If he doesn't want it, I know someone who does

    (it's soooooooo cold today!)

    Yeah, I'm looking to not spend a fortune, actually.

    Although those are all good ideas. I know he doesn't have a PDA, for whatever reason. Maybe I'll think about that?

    Sheesh. Dating sucks.

    He's already got one of those. In fact, he just bought a new car a couple of months ago.

    But maybe I could get one of those for someone else, as a housewarming gift?

    Nope. Buying presents for guys sucks. They're so picky! Can't just buy a tool or a gadget, it's gotta be just the right tool or gadget that they looked at at Sears/Best Buy/Home Depot for 2 freakin hours!

    What are his hobbies?

    You said he's militaristic. Does that mean he likes military history? If so maybe some videos or books on that subject.
    Is he a video or computer game type? Maybe if he is he would like some kind of militaristic computer game.

    You can't go wrong with a gift certificate. Just make sure it's some place he shops. When I go this route, I always wrap a box with it in it, then do the same thing and keep putting box in box until I think they've been tortured enough. I have never had a complaint yet.
