Next week, my Pakua master turns 19. (I'm being taught by someone young enough to be my daughter. The world is getting scary.)

I want to get her a present. I have no idea what, so I'm tossing it out to the collected wisdom of my friends list.

She's 19. She's very bright but not interested in reading, although she does like manga. Including yaoi manga. She's almost inhumanly energetic and perky, but that could be a function of her age. She's very sweet.

She adores animals and plans to be a vet. She likes men a *lot*. She's not into clothes or jewelery. She likes action type movies.

So, you think maybe a stuffed animal?

speaking as someone frantically decluttering...

If she likes animals and plans to be a vet ... why not a small donation to an animal charity (WWF or your local SPCA or something) in her name.

Barring that, gift certificates for a coffee house (like one of those starbucks cards) or movies (theatre or rentals). A small treat she might not otherwise be able to indulge.


Re: speaking as someone frantically decluttering...

The donation might work, except she's a very...concrete 19 year old. Still, something to think about.

She goes to movies often, but a gift certificate to a nice theater would work very well.

The coffeehouse, not so much. She's Mormon. :)

Re: speaking as someone frantically decluttering...

or a gift certificate to your local bookstore that sells manga - so she can pick up something she doesn't already have. there are lots of really good series out there and and more upcoming, but not knowing what's she's already read makes picking it out yourself problematic.
