    hey

    can anyone help me think of some ideas what to get my bf for his birthday? he's going to be 23, and i've already asked him what he wants.

    he just said someTHING, he DOESN'T WANT ME BUYING HIM TICKETS FOR ANYTHING. looking to spend £50/60. nothing too mushy or sentimental, but more imaginative than shirt/jumper etc, unless something special about that particular one... he likes cricket/rugby/actually most sports. he cycles...

    one idea is like a really useful gadget or something... i'd be willing to pay more if it is really cool!

    can't think of anything else at the moment and time is marching on. any help would be greatly appreciated.

    thanks!!

    Does he have a watch? You can get a nice little watch for that kind of money, and it'd have some sentimental value with it coming from you

    no he doesn't wear a watch. i wish i could be anon when i say this, but for some reason, watches kinda creep me out, so i don't think i could buy him one. lucky for me he doesn't wear a watch anyway!

    thanks for your idea though.

    Watches creep you out? I'm intrigued and confused XD But not to worry, thought I'd just drop in the idea

    Tickets to the Red Bull X-fighters in London on August 22?
    Tickets to a forthcoming ashes match?
    hmm...those are good ideas. i'll have to think about them...

    i've mentioned tickets to other games before, and he said he didn't want me to get them for his birthday. i don't understand why though...

    digital photo frame with a memory card in that you've upload a few pics of you two on? you can get a quite good one for £30/40 ish, then some general things he likes as small extras? food/ smellies/ meal etc...

    weird he doesn't want tickets! That's the most obvious answer.

    If it's anything to do with cycling that you get him, get him less at a better quality rather than more but cruddy quality. What kind of cycling? 50-60 would get you a VERY nice cycle computer if he's into XC/road riding.

    i wonder if it's too sentimental. lol, he's just not that kind of guy. his flat doesn't really have that many photos, but actually the more i think about it, it does sound like good idea...

    thanks!

    if he is a sporty guy, well why don't you two get your bikes and go biking in the country side?
    like do a day out, especially for him.

    How about a Zpen? That is, if he is at uni, or would use it a lot. I really want one of these!

    For that sort of money you're looking at wireless (no wires connecting the sensors to the computer) and possibly cadence sensing too (tells you how fast you're pedaling) as well as how fast you're actually moving.

    Look into Cat-Eye who make very good (albeit expensive) computers. Take a wander into your local bike shop (try to avoid places like Halfords or Partridge Cycles though), small independent shops are much more likely to give you good advice without trying to make you buy it.

    If he's into sports then my standard 'get him a litsabre, limited edition Transformer, etc...' probably won't be any good. Heck I'd kill for one of the force FX light sabres, all shiny and chrome, and a Megatron would compliment my 25th (or is it 20th?) anniversary Optimus Prime very well.


    The only trouble with buying stuff for a bloke's hobby is that you will invariably get it wrong. The same is probably true of women's hobbies, I'm sure my wife would get a little bit pissed off if I bought her a cake tin, and I know she's said: "It's the wrong Jamie Oliver Cookbook..."


    And that is why I get her crap presents these days, after ten years you do sort of run out of decent ideas...
