    It is my friend's birthday next Thursday, and with me having exams and not going shopping much, i am finding it extremely hard to think or find a present for him. It is his 19th birthday, and i thought if i gave you a few details about him, you may be able to come up with some ideas. Not copping out and buying alcohol/music/dvd/game.

    He's male
    Turning 19
    About to move into a house
    Starting 2nd year uni
    Has many signed things (Moby and Stereophonics)
    Loves music (but not buying CD's!)
    He's shy with girls
    Umm.. i can't think of anything else.

    Can anyone think of anything for me to get him?? Help please!

    I'd get him something silly for his house, like a lucky charm or something, and then a simple ordinary present like a CD/DVD, give them as a combo.

    On saying that, I've never been good at presents and that suggestion does sound pretty rubbish. Nevermind.

    If you were an Alan Partridge fan, ie you find his show funny, would you appreciate a caricature limited edition poster/art work?? I don't know if he'd like it. =|

    I know it may seem like a cop out thing
    But we do a thing called 'Impulse Buying' - it's great fun
    Basically take as much cash as you are prepared to spend to somewhere like woolworths, bwise or tescos that sells lots of different random things
    Then buy totally random things - everything under a fiver
    You can wrap them all up and come up with a great 'reason' for buying each one!!

    For my 18th Jon (king of impulse buying) and Tim bought me:
    some tupperware, a wooden banana, a wooden whisk, some detangling spray, some rocket fuel coffee, a piece of extreme cheddar, a garden fork and trowel, some matches, some ground cumin, a terry;s chocolate orange, a sachet of options hot chocolate, some serviettes, a ball of string, a can of "tire magic", an indian meal for 2, some english fudge, a vat of vinegar, a blue bikini - size double D, 12 bottles of white wine, and a peg set to go with my whirly washing line!!!
