I'm looking to get about 6 people gifts: mom and dad, brother, 2 of my best friends (they're girls, i'ma guy) and one of the girl's 4 year old.
For my parents, they've just had my brother and I finish undergrad, so although both of us have been out of the house, my brother is getting into the real world and may be moving out; I'm 2 states away in med school, so I'm not home--already they've gotten poodles. So I was thinking something that let's them know they're getting old. Something that they could use together though. My brother--he's mechanical, just finished a automechanic's college in Nashville--so something symbolic of going into the real world . . . .
Here's the hard part: something for my best friends. First off--the four year old boy. Something loud and that will annoy the hell outta his mom (she'll love me all the more for it).
The girls, one just finished college, the other just started grad school (and will soon be going into med school). They've been my best friends for about the past 5 years, although we don't always get along at times. So other than bottles of Midol or something of the sorts for the both of em, I have no clue what to do this year. The 4 year old's mother works almost every day of the week, and the other can't get her nose out of the books.
Help me Hivemind! please remember though--I'm on a budget (school loans, ugh). Thanks
