What do you get for the man
who has everything?

This page may help!

It may be a cliche, but I really do prefer one-of-a-kind gifts that remind me of the person who gave it to me. Artsy-crafty items, poems, stories, mix CDs, homemade cards, paintings -- these are the kinds of things that I love to get from the people I love!

While I do like getting clothes as gifts, I am somewhat picky about what I will wear. Here are a few helpful hints if you want to give it a shot:

  • Cotton is my favorite fabric by far!
  • Greens, blues, maroons and browns are the colors that work best for me
  • No logos, no advertisements! Even if the shirt displays a musical artist, movie, product, or sports team that I enjoy, I will be unlikely to wear it. That's just the way I am.
  • No plaid
  • No paisley
  • No argyle
  • I run hot, so heavy sweaters don't work for me

I shop mainly at The Gap and Old Navy, and most of my shoes are Skechers. These sizes generally work for me across the board:

Shirt Size: XL
Dress Shirt Size: 17 1/2 Neck; 34-35 Sleeve
Pants Size: 36 x 30
Shoe Size: 8 or 8 1/2
Boxers Size: Large

Being a crazy collector-type person, I often buy the CDs, DVDs and books I want as they hit the stores. While this could make it hard to buy presents for me, I also actively maintain an online "Wish List" on Amazon so you can check out some of the presents I have not bought for myself:



I spend a lot of money at, Newbury Comics, The Gap, and the iTunes Store. You can't go wrong throwing some gift certificates my way!
