ASK A QUESTION A good present for a 27 year old man...any ideas?
This question was launched by our good friend Loa, who has been helping a lot on this site, in her nice and quiet way
my boyfriend will be 27 in a few days and I don't know what to buy for his birthday (real fact, any advice appreciated jeje). "Estoy por comprarle una camiseta": I don't know if he will like, but I think it's not a bad present.
I was suprised to see this was her first question, so all the reputation points she has , and they are quite numerous, considering, she all got them by answering questions!! I would like to give her a special thanks, as this is quite unusual and it shows that there are many people who help a lot and are not so well known.
So, I am asking this question for her...in any case, I would like to get some original ideas, ladies and gentlemen, let's not go with ties or shirts, come one...something really weird or unusual
How about this:
¿Le gustan las gafas de sol? A mí me encantan, eso sería un buen regalo. Unas de Rayban...chica, tienes unos modelos tan chulos!!! Ademàs sería fuera de lo común.
It depends on what kind of guy he is, obviously. If he likes gadgets, then you can select from the traditional Swiss Army knife to computer related stuff, a flash drive, an iphone.
Music? then a really good mp3 player.
Clothes are always dodgy. Perhaps something extra special like a beautifully made soft leather shoulder bag or wallet?
Hmm, it's quite difficult especially without knowing what kind of guy he is so I'll leave it there.
Si le gusta leer puedes comprarle un libro; - un CD con su musica preferida: - unos billetes en el concierto de su grupo musical preferido - productos de cuidado personal - algo personalizado - algo sexy para ti y que lo disfrutes:no voy a entrar en detalles
It depends on his interests Loa....
But, since he is your boyfriend (I assume you guys know each other for a long time), you can give him personalized gifts... You can print a happy and memorable picture of you two in a T shirt. These are cost effective and kind of intimate. Else you can arrange for a candle light dinner.
Recently I gifted my friend 25 gifts on her birthday. I hid them in different places and gave her the first clue. It included from teether to a birthday dress to a birthday cake. You can try this if he likes adventure.
You can record a video for him! I have a good idea, and I'm going to do it for my best friend.
First you need to write your real feelings about him. 10-15 sentences. Then you need to go down the street and ask some people to say one word of that page and say "Happy Birthday!", then you organize them with a movie maker program or something you use. But I think , it's better if you say the last sentence.. Then you add those "Happy Birthday!" wishes and in the end your own words for him.
It's just a different idea. Because I don't know, actually I don't wait for a birthday to buy something to someone I love. Whenever you see a nice thing you can buy it to him. But this is a different thing. Sometimes breaking the ordinariness is good!
Loa, can you give us an idea of his interests, is he an outdoorsman? Computer buff? Scuba Diver?(Of course I'm going to ask that one) Anything that might help us help you.
How about a few handmade gift certificates that he can "cash in", such as:
This certificate is good for one homemade dinner of [favorite food].
This certificate is good for a foot massage.
This certificate is good for a pan of brownies [a loaf of banana bread, a jar of homemade jam...]
This certificate is good for an afternoon in the park [at the beach, in the country...]
These are just samples, of course, and depending on the guy, there are lots of variations you can come up with.
Estoy de accuerdo con las ídeas del libro, CD o billetes para un concierto
Si sabes sobre sus pasatiempos puedes, quizás, hacer coincidir sus ídeas sobre regalos con sus pasatiempos para que le compres un regalo apropriado
Espero que te sirva bien
Corregid mi español, por favor
Buy him a gitar
Or maybe a bottle of whiskey ? jajaja
