So I graduated from high school this (last?) summer, and my parents recently approached me about a graduation gift. I hadn't really considered it much, as I was happy enough with them paying for college. And now I'm having a lot of difficulty choosing something that is really worth the investment.
We had originally discussed a bike, since I'm attending school in Portland; however, I would have absolutely no use for it until I actually move into the city, which at this point is completely up in the air. I know I will eventually, but it might not even be until next year. Now I have no idea..a watch? TV? Boxes o' Porn?
Those of you who have received a grad gift - what did you choose and why? Any suggestions? And everyone else, what would you choose if you could? Anything goes!
P.S. I believe the limit is around $300 or so.
Edit: Here are some things that I already have, just to clarify:
- Netbook, use it almost every day for/between classes and love it
- TV. However, it's old and huge (heavy) and will probably not come with me when I move out
- Xbox, which is one reason I was considering a nice LCD (maybe 32")
- A job at PSU
- Some of my own money in stocks, although not that much
I currently live in Vancouver, so I drive partway in and take public transit the rest of the way. I'm in Portland every day essentially from 9-5, which is why I wouldn't have any use for a bike at the moment. However, when I do end up moving down I won't bring my car, so it's still very tempting. A suit also seems like it might be a good idea, although I can't really think of any situation outside of a job interview that will require one.
