wink Get a gift for Bono....

Heres my rainy day question?

If you were able to meet Bono before a show, what gift would you bring him?

I thought of this question because I saw something that reminded me of him....it was a small

celtic cross with a verse from psalms on it. I thought it would be lovely for that situation.

Me, tied with a big red bow!!! But seriously, something I'd made myself say a drawing or something. I'll get back to you once I've had a think!

quit stealing my thoughts!
also, I think I'd give him something... that would mean something to him... not something like a teddybear or a rose or so... god I really don't know...

Doesn't matter. Any gift I can think of would be the wrong one.

Pity party for one.


I've seen some really great gifts - not necessarily the value but for some reason, Bono has been tickled by them. A flower, bottle of wine,box of chocolates, train set... the sky is the limit with him I guess.

I'm sure he'd appreciate it more if you donated whatever money you spent on your gift to a charity or something.

I am always surprised when people give the guys food/drinks...

Of course them being nothing but nice, they accept it graciously and beam a smile, but I am sorry, if I am them or their security team, there is no way in hell I am putting any of that stuff in my mouth/allow them to do so... 99% of it might be perfectly fine and given with nothing but love, but there are waaaaaaaaay too many crazies out there to take the risk.

And yup, I did a donation for AWF last year and plan on doing so again this year for his birthday

I have no godly clue what I'd give. I agree with the food and drink thing, no way if I were any of them would I want stuff like that to touch my lips. I would appreciate the thought, but no way.

yeah you could see Bono's reaction, first there was the MTV Jammed thingy,
what's that? Oh guinnesses Thank you so much!

and then the 2nd disc of the chicago dvd.. fans saying Bono we got you guinness for your birthday... and he was like YAY thank you

but there is that funny picture of John holding that bottle of whatever-it-is-alcohol and Bono looking like 'give me, I want it' *pouts*
so maybe John didn't trust it there...
also I think when the cans/bottles are closed, how could somebody put nasty stuff in it?

Bet he'd be like WTF????

Wine you could usually inject something through the cork with a syringe...

.. you didn't happen to give something to Bono now did you?.....
but it's very hard to think of something for a gift that really would mean something to him... I really can't think of something!
