In summary, Ivan suggests a present for his girlfriend's brother's 60th birthday that includes wine, brandy, fine whiskey, or a CD of his favorite music.

My girlfriend's brother turns 60 this month. He is well read, so he already knows what books he likes. He is also very particular as to what videos he watches. He does not seem to be very athletic, and lives in a condominium. Considering all this, can you think of a present in the $20-$50 range that you have given in the past that might work for him?

Does he like wine, brandy, fine whiskey, etc? A good bottle of whatever he likes is usually a good gift.

Maybe a CD of his favourite music...

These days, i was so busy proving myself before my colleages and many ofther friends about myself, my love, i mean, i have no time to come back and post a bunch of questions i have in mind. Hopefully after all no one will doubt bout my real real real love for my Japanese wife,--my wife is a japanese.
I am truly not joking, htat if possible, you should give him a box of viagra, he would like it because hr feesl himself younger than usual. being young to me is not a thing whished by women but men also love to make themselves look younger esp when they think they want to love some1 again.

Again, Viagra! the power helper for all men in their 60s.

-Sapmmers, get to you later, bye for now.

Ivan,

I may give him some fine food, but being a teetotaler myself, I would not give alcohol. Thanks for the inspiration!

Danger,

I should have mentioned that CDs for him are like DVDs, very selective and personal. I thought of giving him some Discwasher equipment to keep his collection and player clean, though.

Spammers,

If he needed Viagra I would refer him to his doctor, since prescription medicine is so for a purpose. Viagra helps, but is just part of medical dispensation.

I would give him a gift card to a good mulit-media store or gourmet shop that way he can pick what he likes.

You could send him MIH in a Saran-wrap bikini and solve a couple of problems at once. :-p

Ivan,

You remind me that I have a source of Godiva chocolates at a discount!

hypatia,

A good alternative, if the need arises.

Danger,

What or who is MIH? :bugeye:

Heh, I thought all men over 20 wanted ties, ties, and more ties. ;)

If he likes to cook, small herb gardens (starter kits or already started :) are inexpensive and very easy to maintain, in a window sill or patio. Maybe a throw or pillow for his lounge chair (all men over 30 have lounge chairs, right?). Picnic basket, beach umbrella, coffee grinder, water purifier, shaving set (great deal), http://www.dartboards.com/dart_boards/shop.cfm/N=195+210+557+213, wireless optical mouse, um...

Oh, please, Loren. It didn't hold up in court when you tried to say you didn't know me - and it won't hold up now! :devil:

Did I inadvertently reactivate an old stalker?! Sorry, MIH! :redface:

Oh, that MIH. Is the dinner in question something like "Breakfast of Champions"? o:)

I looked around my house and decided upon giving him a two-year subcryption to... (can you guess?)
