    Default Brother Getting Married...any ideas?

    So my brother is getting married on the 23rd.
    I need some ideas as to what to get as a present...

    I don't want to get any household appliances...cause well, she's going to be movin' in instead of 'em starting from scratch...

    I was thinking moreso of going and getting solo gifts...for him and for her...but I'm just shootin blanks in the idea department right now...

    They need to go and register somewhere and make it easy for you. Tell them that way they won't get a bunch of stuff they don't want. If they don't do that, just go with something they both would enjoy. You never know they, they may still need a new toaster!

    I think the answer is obvious.

    and sadly the HDTV is a bit out of my budget...otherwise I would've gotten one for myself.

    Two toasters! One for each.

    Seriously, what Ken said: something he/she enjoys. Just think of what they like to do in their spare time and then you'll come up with something eventually. Remember that this doesn't always have to be something material. It can also be a gift token for something they (might) like to do. Or you could be creative yourself and write something, draw something, ... It doesn't matter whether I'm on the receiving or on the giving end, I always enjoy those kinds of presents the most.

    Something.

    I thought that stunt was know by everyone in the basketball community, I guess I was wrong.

    Obviously Christie is whipped by his wife, so as a joke whenever people get married around here we give them a Christie jersey to symbolize "Welcome to marriage, where you are bound to be whipped"....

    What the hell's going on out here?
    Well, Nuke's scared because his eyelids are jammed and his old man's here. We need a live... is it a live rooster?
    We need a live rooster to take the curse off Jose's glove and nobody seems to know what to get Millie or Jimmy for their wedding present.
    Okay, well, candlesticks always make a nice gift, and maybe you could find out where she's registered and maybe a place-setting or maybe a silverware pattern.
