    Thats fair. Just get the football shirt then. If you have a good relationship with him then i'm sure he wont get the wrong idea.

    No, he's older than my dad... in his 50's!

    Why if i did fancy him, what effect would giving this present have?

    ...he has to contend with what his collegues think. Also, does he have a significant other? It might be awkward for him to explain such an expensive present.

    anyone can throw money around.. I think small and thoughtful is a better way to go....

    Well whether he tells his colleagues is another matter... it would be kinda secret, he's that way inclined. He is married, but it's one led by separate lives, as in they are together - just because...

    It's not a matter of throwing money, it's buying something that would mean alot to him, to say a BIG thankyou and other stuff...If i wanted to throw money, i could buy him box seats for special match, now that would be silly...

    Lol, ok that's too old.

    If you did fancy him he'd know you fancied him from the present, even if he didn't get it himself at least one of his collegues would suggest it. And from there who knows? lol. But he's old so you wouldn't fancy him...

    Get him the football shirt, he'll really like it and it's anice way to say thanks

    the whole 'it would be secret' thing screams ulterior motive to me. May be I'm just a cynic! It is a lovely idea, I just think a little inappropriate...

    No it's just he did that for me, in a present for me bday he gave to me.. he didn't present it to me, but left it for me to find...

    It is my fault, since i am worried he would reject it or act strangel, so if i leave it there, when he finds it i don't have to see his reaction. If good, he can say thanks to me, if bad i don't find/need to know.. lol

    You see my warped mind... i can see ya point though
