My ENTJ housemate is leaving and I want to get him the perfect leaving gift. Normally I go for cake :) but I'd kinda like to give him something non-perishable this time. Have been thinking about strategy games or shiny, new gagdets like on this website:

ThinkGeek :: Gadgets

Do you have any suggestions on what you would love and appreciate??

Thanks in advance!

Ooh, ooh... I know the answer to this one

*nothing*

... and I wish my family would/could understand this - for every occasion. I'm perfectly capable of getting anything I want, in a material sense.

Thanks guys for your suggestion and comments...I'm kinda tempted with this - seems kinda apt:

mental_floss store :: Home & Office :: Descartes Disappearing Mug

You're right, Troisi, we are quite good at coming up with things that are specific to the person in question..the trouble is, I never know when that intuitive aha moment will strike, which is difficult when you have an actual deadline. that's why i prefer giving gifts randomly, just when I see something I know a person would like.

JHBowden, I'm totally with you - one of my best gifts ever was a tin of peaches, doesn't costs a lot, but so personal (they're my ultimate comfort food!)

I'm wondering if there's something like a rubik's cube, just much much harder, that'll keep him entertained until he's mastered it :-S

I found it!

This weekend, I went to a festival and past a store selling little tin boats to put in the bathtub, that are steam powered, so you have to light a candle thing to make them work. they're so cool, and esp since he was a deep sea fisherman for a couple of years and was gonna be the merchant navy is perfect! :crazy:

I'm so happy; thanks for al your help and pointers!
