My friend turns 50 this week. I have no idea what to get him! He is stylish, arty, single, lives alone in a city flat. I don't think jewellry would be any good and I bought him cufflinks for a previous landmark birthday. He isn't the sort of person to go on an "experience" of any kind. I live several hundred miles away and haven't seen him for several years which makes it harder as I don't know what he has in his new apartment. All ideas very gratefully recieved. £100 (ish) budget.
I thought of wine but although he would go to a bar, he isn't really an at-home drinker. I am not sure if he would take something out to dinner, maybe he would. Print he would like yes, I would need to shop online though as I am so far away. Sadly the surprise visit isn't on the cards yet although I am planning on visiting near Christmas.
useful link. If you are interested in a print an etching is probably most suited for your budget, I would recommend contacting the studios directly and asking for options. A very limited amount of work is listed online, they may have more options available to discuss.
I know you said that something for his apartment would be tricky because you don't know what he's got, but the things here are lovely and über stylish. I'd like pretty much anything if only I could afford it!
