    Apart from a 2006 Aston Martin DBS, their own bond girl or a 'licence to kill' what do 27 year old lads want for Christmas this year?

    depends how much you have to spend but I would guess at a nintendo wii being a good option! that is what I am getting mine, although he is 32 (not sure he would like me admitting that though :biggrin:)

    Well you joke about the Bond thing, but really you can't usually go wrong with gadgets or car-related stuff. If you've got the bunce, an iPod or one of those driving experience things where you get to razz a Lambo round Silverstone would probably hit the spot. If you're on more of a budget, (and I'm only speaking for myself here, I'm 33 so a bit out of the target demographic) what about a good set of cordless headphones, or a reasonable quality watch? Alternatively try googling "men gifts" or something - there are plenty of sites like this one that specialise in the sort of daft gadgets that blokes like. I know it has a slightly "downmarket" reputation but if you go to argos.co.uk they have a gift finder where you can put in the gender, gift type and budget and it presents you with a load of options. If you get really desperate (and again I'm speaking for me here!) a really good single malt or top notch brandy is always welcome.

    Best of luck!

    What, the fact that he's 32, or that he needs a Wii ;)

    I've got a Wii on order that I don't really want. £180 plus postage if interested

    Dyl's suggestion of IWantOneofThose is a good starting point, ans is the Nintendo Wii idea (not a lot of money and it looks like a right laugh).

    As for driving days, these are great - they might look expensive, but they are well worth it. I went on a Ferrari day for my 33rd Birthday and it was great, I got to drive some real exotica (a 550 Marenello being one) and also a few eye watering laps with my race instructor in a Noble. Seriously a life enhancing day - and one he'll remember for a long, long time.

    Half the age, add 7 (apparently...;) )

    So a 20-21 year old lass (unless he's got one?) :cool:

    Does he have any old Vinyl LP's he'd like to bring to CD or iPod/MP3 etc...? maybe one of these USB turntables, simply connect to your PC and play the LP..:

    ...available here.

    Most big boys want little boys toys,

    games systems, train sets, scalextric, radio controlled, cars, boats, helicopters etc.

    I want some more tattoos...

    Does anyone know if Santa's good at tattooing?

    I want a pogo stick too

    Maybe that's the secret of Rudolph's red nose - it's a red tattoo? :confused: I always assumed it was because Santa shared the sherry and mincepies with him.... :rolleyes:

    - didn't the daleks use them in the last series of Dr. Who as weapons of mass destruction? :tongue:

    Quite probably.

    You could put these things (they're Brauner VM-1s incidentally, for the curious) in front of Bands and by their very nature they could reveal that you're possibly not quite as good as you think you are ;)

    Then they should be banned, immediately.

    I can already do it already with what I've got - and I'd be £10G better off.

    I'd take the Aston Martin option though ;)
