For someone who has everything

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
So I'm thinking about getting my neighbor boys (who let me tell you are drop dead gorgeous ) something for Christmas. They always watch Harley for us when we go out of town and they are just great guys.

Anyways-my problem, the one guy, has everything anyone would ever want. What do you get someone who has a lot of money already and has everything? I mean, a gift card would be dumb wouldn't it? Why would he need a $20 gift card when he has money-would that be stupid to give him? I'm so stumped. He's a Harley Davidson lover, so I was thinking okay maybe a gift card and a shirt? BUT- he has EVERY shirt you could possibly imagine that Harley has ever came out with....I'm confused

The other one will be easy to give something to, I just want to make sure its fair and not give something to 1 and not the other, cuz they are both really great friends and neighbors....

Any ideas? Cuz I'm seriously clueless!

What about jerky? Everyone loves it! You could give them a gift pak. Just a thought. Click on my website.

I'm having similar issues. Sometimes, it's so tough to know what to get someone. Whatever you give will be so special, though, if sent with love and a sincere heart.

I do not love jerky! I can't stand it!

Is there another HArley Davidson Accessory you could get him? Wallet, belt, hat, keychain?

We bake for them every Monday night, I send over homemade cookies...

Do you think maybe like a variety platter of cookies and bars and stuff would be good? They never cook for themselves, haha!

He has so much.... I just love Harley shirts, I would really love to get him one, but what if he has the same one? I would feel like a complete DORK!

If that's the case, I think cookies would be a great idea and maybe even a homemade meal!

I think I might do that...I just wasn't sure if that was an okay idea or not?
They are such great guys (and not bad to look at! ) that I really wanted to do something for them!

I've just spent the past two days baking, and probably still have one good day left to finish up here. My selections this year were peanut butter blossoms, white chocolate cranberry shortbreads, snickerdoodles, gingersnaps, pecan bars and fudge. Try www.kraftfoods.com/cookies for some great recipes. Good luck! Home-baked cookies are always a huge hit this time of year!

Since you cook and they don't cook, why not make your own coupon that you cook a meal for them one night? It might even be fun to have a dinner party!

You could also cook a few meals and put them in containers for their freezer.

I was thinking that, where would I get a motorcycle cut out? That would be so great!!

I talked to them earlier ( ) and they told me that they wanted visitation rights to Harley....so I told them that they do! They can come over whenever they want....and then they decided that they wanted full custody of Harley! I was like NO WAY!! I draw the line right there!

They also said that they want a 5 course meal, so I told them that I would whip up a roast or steaks one or 2 nights for them b4 Christmas or something.

I still feel like I should get them something more, I mean they watch Harley like every other weekend when we're outta town-they are his second parents!

I make a TON of homemade Christmas cookies every year to give to bunches of people at work and for some of my hubby's customers. People just LOVE to get them and they seem way more personal and heartfelt to me than a gift certificate or a shirt.

I've got a ton of great recipes that I've collected over the years from books and magazines. This year I'm making peanut butter cookies, shortbread, cherry chocolate kiss cookies, peanut blossoms, ginger cookies, chocolate chip cookies, chocolate mocha bars, white chocolate peppermint cookies. I'm also making the most sinfully delicious, fattening, chocolatey brownies ever. Since work is always pretty hectic around this time of year, all the recipes I rely on are pretty simple, reliable and quick to put together. (No time for cutouts or something that takes tons of decoration time.) Let me know if you want me to PM any of the recipes to you.

If they love Harley (the cat) so much what about a photo of him in a really nice frame- Harley Davidson theme if you can get it?
post #24 of 29
My neighbors dont cook either, and they are also both biker boys. I made them their one slice and bake cookie logs (sugar and chocolate chip) and Browinies (in a throw away pan I dont want back) and all kinds of sweets that they can pull out and bake themselves whenever they want. Not hard, heat oven put pan in oven, take out when smells good.

Also since they are bikers, what about a gift cert. to a harley store? That way you dont have to worry about doubling anything they have, they pick it out, but it shows you know them well enough to get it from one of their favorite places?

I think that is a great idea!

Plus a way to a man's heart is through his stomach.
They asked for a 5-course meal. Make them one.
Or just 5 easy freezer-to-oven meals.
