Birthday gift filter: What to get a sibling running for local public office?
posted by goodnight moon to Grab Bag (11 answers total)
I would like to get my brother ( 30 y/o) something more than the typical gift for his birthday since he is running an exciting and largely successful primary campaign for local public office. Gifts from me in the past have been to the country fair (popular festival in our state), something from a grange co op for his garden, etc.
His campaign has been largely successful thus far, and he is expected to win the primary next week. The general will be a whole other challenge, but I'd like to get him something that'd help him remember this experience or something that will help him along the way. I've already volunteered and donated, so hopefully this will be something distinctively different. Any ideas? Maybe something to take with him when he meets people while canvassing or rallying...but what?
* Complication - he lives 4-5 hrs away which means I don't have any awesome photos from his time thus far canvassing or debating and don't personally know many of his key campaign people.
