    My little brother is graduating high school next month so I have about a month to think it over. He doesnt really take care of anything he owns and if I give him cash he will spend it all on his girlfriend like he usually does so I want him to have something he can enjoy as well as being practical and help him in his future career (fireman... odd I know but he is taking classes for it along with doing quite a bit more so who knows he may end up doing it) so I dont quite know what I should do. I am coming here to ask you all what you think the best way I can sum him up is Ambition-Firefighter Click-Emo/Prep Maturity Level-Pussy Whipped.

    I could get him something goofy related to firemen, 50$ card to pac sun and something for him and his girlfriend but I feel it would be a cop out.

    Wait people get gifts for finishing high school now?

    Anyhow the usual older brother routine of a big knife/firearm will surely go down well.

    A practical knife sounds like a good idea here too. maybe a balisong?

    lol balisong if I got him one he would cut off a finger learning to open it. ima print up a fake 100$ has been donated to you in your name blah di blah. IN THE US you get gifts for everything fast nowadays even easter. I know wtf.


    gifts for hs graduation have been a traditional thing for many years so unless you graduated during the "great" (so you had to eat fake butter for a while whats the big deal) depression. then ya know.

    Get him a can of petrol, some matches and a bucket of water.

    That will help kick start his fire fighting career.

    Firearm? wtf.

    Give him a coupla underpants. That's useful, will help him in his career (comfy if u wear them) and life (if they toll like bells, he might end up being esterile).

    Give everybody shorts with flames on them make it look real realistic so he has a good time running around trying to put everybody out [​IMG] . I can't really think of anything but maybe if you do get the wallet make a mirroring thing in your house and make it look like It's on fire.

    Fire Wallet.


    Bad Investment but gifts are supposed to be shit right?
    Good intentions and all.


    It has 2 PLASTIC thread strips that before each use you have to soak with lighter fluid. The strips melt... cuz they are plastic. they dont burn they melt.

    SO they STick together
    which means they get ripped apart when you reopen the wallet
    and it makes your clothes smell bad if you use it as an actual wallet.

    so dont buy it.

    It is trying to pretend like its a nice wallet but its not.
