Gifts I Would Buy My Brother If Money Were No Object

  • Nov 11, 2009
  • by
They say it's the thought that counts, so I'm going to think about things I would buy for my brother's birthday if I had unlimited funds. By showing "Hey, I thought about it," I don't have to actually buy any of these things. At least he'll know I care.
1
BMW
BMW
I'm thinking the M5 sedan. The convertible's nice, but the insurance on that would be absurd! Besides, the M5 says "family man," don't you think?
2
CineBox Outdoor Movie Screen 16' x 9' Theater System - Screen - LCD Projector - DVD Player - Audio Mixer - Outdoor Speakers
He has a pretty impressive media center, but it's really time for him to have an outdoor theater. When he's grilling on the BBQ, he won't have to miss scenes in a movie. And now that he and his friends have a lot of kids, it's better to entertain them on the lawn than in the house. Spilling food and soda on the lawn is much better than spilling it in the house.
3
Guinness
I'm thinking monthly delivery of a keg. If I did weekly, he probably wouldn't enjoy it as much and he wouldn't be able to get rid of the friends coming by for free beer.
4
Pope Bisect Two Piece Travelboard
Just in case he doesn't want to add roof racks to the M5, this surfboard should fold up neatly to make it easy to travel with. I've also learned that renting surfboards when traveling can be a bit of a pain, so he'll be able to pack his own.
5
Lasik Eye Surgery
This is the only thing I can think of that could improve his basketball game.
6
Green Bay Packers
Yup, I'd buy him the whole team. Managing an NFL team would be a nice little side project. If nothing else, it would guarantee season tickets for the whole family.
7
Kindle 2: Amazon's New Wireless Reading Device
I support literacy. This just happens to take up less space than books. And this list is for a gadget geek, so even books have to be electronic in some way.
8
Chipotle
A man's got to eat. I considered adding Qdoba, but I think Chipotle is more widespread. And as the owner of this taco and burrito chain, he could travel the U.S. without going hungry.
9
Mountainsmith Dog Trippin' Kit from Backcountry.com
He should be able to get out and enjoy hiking and camping while knowing his dogs can carry their own gear.

What did you think of this list?

What a perfect list! I feel like you've known me your entire life! Now we just gotta work on that "Money is not Object" part for you...

We can discuss get-rich-quick ideas over a burrito and a beer.

Maybe someone with a "money is no object" mentality will see this list and kindly purchase a football team or BMW for my brother. Thanks for the nice comments. You thoughts count, too!

What a creative list! And yes, it really is the thought that counts :)

Well, you can give him a sixer of Guinness, a gift card to Chipotle and make a map or list of local hiking trails for him! That's a more affordable version of 3 of the things on the list ;p Good luck!
