Cheap, quality gift Ideas for people
 
I don't care who you are, where you live, what color you are, what language you speak, what kind of music you like, or how ugly you are, everyone on this planet should have the chance to hear it.

Miles Davis - Kind of Blue

I saw a dozen copies at Best Buy for $10. $10 FOR THIS ABSOLUTE MASTERPIECE! And people pay $18.99 for a Britney Spears CD. Why? Buy this album for your kids, your neighbors, your friends, enemies, dogs and yourself. I honestly cannot more highly recommend an album. Even considering my U2 albums, this is perhaps my favorite album of all-time.

What is Best Buy, is it like a cheap CD store? Its very popular among americans and I dunno what it is...It sounds like Woolworths a big store full of lots of different things cd's, stationary, clothes, is it like that?

It's a chain of giant electronic stores. It has pretty much everything, CDs, computers, phones, movies, stereos, TVs, office furnature, appliances, you name it. They usually have a great selection of CDs, it's a good way to find older and less commercial albums for cheap.

You have never been so right! This reminds me that I recently loaned my copy to a friend and have not received it back yet.

Best Buy does NOT equal Woolworths...It's an electronics store. It's like the only place that's not REALLY expensive with a LOT of CDs and DVDs and CD players and what not. I like Best Buy, I go almost 2 times a week. The security guys by the door all know me by name.

Give me a hundred bucks and watch me blow it all at Best Buy. It's that good.

This isn'y just supposed to be for my idea, I want to hear other ideas from people. I need good cheap gifts too.

~LadyLemon~ 12-10-2001 11:45 PM

For once Swallow is making a great point. I haven't listened to this in a few months now--damn you, I need to hear it again. Oh well, it's conducive to studying.

For college students - coffee maker. Usually available under $20.

Bargain bin CDs are nice too especially when you find such a gem.

And the Leatherman Micra Tool. I have one on my keychain, and I love it. I'm not even the outdoorsy type or anything, but this is a great little gift for around $20.

Socks and underwear (truly one of my favorite gifts)
Pens and pencils
Giant packs of food (the Sam's Club variety, like 48-count packs of Ramen Noodles)

Now I am a college student...just keep that in mind. http://forum.interference.com/u2feedback/wink.gif
