Thinking of sending the above to a male 'friend' for his bday next week...just wondering if anyone has sent/recieved one before and what they thought of it? Thought he would appreciate this more than normal flowers but will look a bit crap if its cheap choc and looks daft....cheers

He's a guy, send him a bottle of JD or something along those lines.

he has more than enough alcohol...people always buy him that as gifts and he ever gets round to drinking it thought this would be a bit different...

i think its a waste, £45 for a couple of chocs, why not just go for a luxurious box of choccies

I personally would not like to recieve these but that is just me your friend might like them, agree with other members though about the fact they look abit of a rip for what you are getting £45 would be better spent on something else. only my personal thoughts :thumbsup:

I know...I agree with both of you also but he has everything lol....earns loads so a giftcard would be kinda pointless (If he wanted something that didnt have thought put into it then he could go get it himself) as for clothes....I dont really like sizing other people up...can never get it right and wouldnt wanna insult/embarras him...and I have bought him countless bottles of aftershave lol.....he has all the gadgets any fella can want and dvd/games he aquires himself so again....not a good idea

I just wanted to get him something different that had a bit of thought put into it thats all....can anyone else think of anything quirky then if not these? lol

but will look a bit crap if its cheap choc and looks daft.



You've hit the nail on the head right there.
