My father’s birthday is coming up in, like, um, tomorrow. I knew that. What I’d forgotten is that it’s his 60th. I think I need to think of a better present than I have now (so lame I won’t even mention it), and do it quickly. Any suggestions? I know, I know him better than you guys do, but he’s difficult to shop for - he’s a math professor and does a lot of writing on that topic, but that’s about it. No other major hobbies and interests. Computers and electronics are pretty much out - he just bought a new laptop and that seems to fill all his needs. He hasn’t used the PDA I gave him before. My budget is a couple hundred dollars, maybe up to $400 or so if it’s worth it.
I realize it would be best if I could take him somewhere or do something with him, but I really have no free days for the next month or so.
