lovely man, but he is a bit 'the man who has everything'. I'm stumped. Suggestions?

Have a look in the BBC shop (You can access via Lots of talking books, nice books linked to tv series etc. Very useful.

if he reads then the Penguin Book mugs (reproductions of the original book covers) are popular with all age groups (I've recommended them on here before!!!)and yes I do have a vested interest...

Was going to suggest some nice earrings then realised it was a man....

Can't think of any sensible suggestions now!

like the idea of the talking books jolou. Lemonice, good idea but I think he a bit posh for that(in a nice way). It's hard enough buying presents for men in the first place let alone older ones who aren't related to you.

Yeah, can't go wrong with Champagne.

he's a bit of a wine conisseur (sp?) but I think you're right champagne always goes down well. I also like the book token idea.

is he into whiskey?? because i can't point you in the direction of a perfect present if he is. a top notch single malt that can't be bought in the shops, about £35 with delivery and guaranteed to make a single malt fan's eye's bulge out of head when he opens it.

DaddyCool Thu 21-Jul-05 14:22:48

i can even lol.

katierocket Thu 21-Jul-05 14:47:53

yes daddycool that would be really useful

DaddyCool Thu 21-Jul-05 14:54:16

ok here it is. the whiskey in question is 'Edradour' featured right on the initial home page in the middle. (29.99 but i think delivery is about £5 or £6)

you can't get this bad boy in the shops so it's a really good gift for a scotch fan. feel free to purchase me one out of the kindness of your heart. call it an early birthday present from you to me

it's good then is it? I know bugger all about whiskey

DaddyCool Thu 21-Jul-05 14:57:56

it's very exclusive.
