Title: We both need help for one person!
Post by: half-jack on November 19, 2006 05:21:50 AM
Hi everyone. I need some help.
My best friend and I are both at a loss as to what to get his boyfriend for christmas. I'm friends with him too, and I want to get him a good gift because for my birthday (which was a week after he and my friend started dating, and he'd only met me once) he got me an awesome present, a pin and a glow in the dark punk rubber ducky.

First off, he's extremely smart. Like....#4 in his class. He loves science, but also loves art, photography, and poetry, and dabbles in/is pretty good at all of them.

He loves to/is excellent at juggling, poi, fire poi, and contact ball, and acrobatic stuff. He and my friend street perform at a nearby mall. He loves cirque du soleil type stuff...He tells us he can't decide whether to be a scientist or run away with the circus.

He seems to like stuffed animals pretty well. He bought a lionking plushie the other day (we can't do anything w/ lionking though, we already bought him the soundtracks and other stuff, don't want to beat it to death), and some friends and I bought him and my best friend a halloween build a bear once.

I was thinking I might make him a mixed media collage of a circus or something...i dunno. My friend has no idea.
help would be much appriciated!

Some juggling balls would be an awesome idea.  If either of you knit, try http://magknits.com/May06/patterns/rosalind.htm (http://magknits.com/May06/patterns/rosalind.htm).  Otherwise make him the sign in the pic there.
