Gift Ideas

I thought i'd use this blog for something vaguely useful instead of letting it lie dormantly in cyberspace today. I have to get a graduation present for a close friend of mine and my boss’s birthday is coming up this week too. Let me just say that both are materially well-endowed, that is putting it mildly since they are probably worth half of Bahrain’s GDP collectively.

any suggestions for something cheap and cheerful, that won’t strain my limited resources and serve as a decent gift too?

(PS no one say a 'good book', I thought of that one already, but I ruled it out)

they probably both need some!

other than that, chocolates, especially if they're fat :)

no, that's very mean. Go for New Age things like crystals, rocks, meditational music, that sort of thing is quite popular.

For your boss, every man has something he evaluates alot and you need to discover it yourself. For this type of men, it could be a paint, a bottel of wine or a chocolate bar or a desk accessory.

This is something you may look at.

If he is a suit-oriented man, maybe you may look for a Tie or el daboos mal el tie (i cant recall what is it call at the momement) or buttons for his shirts. I will be too happy if someone gets me one of these. You just need to select them carefully so they look unique and fit with his outfit.

i decided not to get my boss anything... i dont want him to take it the wrong way... but i like the BBN ecosystem thingy

as for my other friend...Odd...i gave her a spa voucher before... she never used it..i have a good mind to ask for it back...

but a good gift i've exhausted is a framed photo collage of the person... everyone loves that cos no one can be bothered at doing it themselves!
