My brother whose due to be 22 is moving into his own flat finally in a couple of weeks. Need to think of something to get him; he said nothing too expensive otherwise he won't accept it, so nothing above £50...

Any suggestions guys? He downloads pretty much all his media, he's getting a MacBook Pro so I was thinking, any useful accessories for it? He's already got Apple Airport and Harmon Kardon Sounsticks...

I neeeed ideas...

Yep, it comes already furnished and all, so don't think he'll be needing any of them.

halogen heater? ;-)

Central heating... and he hates halogens because apparently they use up too much energy on light as well. He's a bit of a snob...

Plants are usually a good idea, but he tends to go on short holidays an awful lot..

I love Next's home stuff, i want the picnic basket they have on sale at the moment.

I'm waiting for it to arrive on ebay, to get it cheaper though.

good one :thumbsup:

How about a case of wine and a lovely chrome wine rack that he can put them in or hand him 2 some tickets to his favourite concert/ssport etc

A housewarming gift really should be something that will last and be for the house. I'd find it very odd for someone to turn up at my house and say 'Congrats on your new home, heres an ipod' :w00t::?

How about an electric fan .... hopefully for the extremely hot summer we're about to have :? [SIZE=7]?[/SIZE]
