Birthday present ideas, please!
So a week on saturday i turn 32. Fiance has been asking me recently "what do you want for your birthday?"... The trouble is, i have no idea what i want! Every attempt to come up with an idea ends up with me being distracted by something else, or staring blankly in to space for minutes on end, devoid of thoughts.
So, my fine fellow edugeeks, I humbly ask for you help. Suggest birthday presents that a 32 year old network manager might like, bearing in mind the following provisos:
* No games - i do enjoy a game on my Xbox, but its not a very imaginitive present following what i got for Xmas
* No books unless they're really good - i've got a backlog to get through...
* Budget is £20 to £30
* Nothing too difficult to obtain - fiance is 7 months pregnant and, despite coping really well, isn't up to marathon shopping trips
Let the suggestions commence!

How about the usb pet rock?

Looking good so far, keep the ideas coming!
Unfortunately i'm a bit too much of a pragmatist for stuff that cost money and does nothing! Plus I've got thousands of pet rocks at home, covering our driveway...

A dictionary that shows the difference between fiance and fiancee :-)

Nice try! Pregnancy and baby books are partly what behind my book backlog. Plus, we've been to the classes; generally very interesting, with a high point of trying the gas and air... Its like been woozy from too much beer, without the accompanying lack of limb accuracy..

If there's really nothing you want, ask for cash and give it to charity.
(Maybe that will get you thinking...)

Two tickets for a gig that YOU want to go to, but she doesnt. (obviously not a top band for that price but you should find something)
Then you can take a friend. (course if it is after the baby is born you will need to promise an evening out for her and a mate when the baby is about 6 months or so).
Can get them online, so no shopping trips needed
Or...item of clothing?
simple bit of jewellery - chain, ring, etc?

Learn to windsurf - vouchers normally valid for 6-12 months and a course is around £135 for four hour lessons with an hours practise after each, or a taster lesson normally around £35 for an hour. Or it was when I used to teach it...and is fun to be able to do when you're on holiday and all the other half wants to do is sunbathe!
