In the past we had a thread where you talked about who you needed to buy a gift for and the ppk came up with awesome answers. I'm hoping to bring it back because I don't know what to get my brother-in-law!

He loves wine but he owns a wine store so he doesn't need any bottles or accessories. He likes movies but watches them online and he doesn't read books although he does like facts. He loves having friends over and going to parties and going to see shows, total extrovert fun guy. Oh and he is from Chicago.

Any ideas?

Maybe a fun board game or trivia game? You could put together a game night package with a game or two, popcorn, candy, etc.

He's into wine, so send him a vegan cheese tray?

If you could find out what his favorite restaurant is you could get him a gift card for it. If he goes to a lot of concerts he's probably big into music? If so a subscription to Spotify or a music magazine? Or do you know if he plays records? A gift card to a local record store he frequents would be good.

For entertaining I would say that Crate & Barrel, Home Goods, William Sonoma, and even Ikea are all good stores for gift card ideas.

A box of artisan chocolates!

How about a gift certificate for a local performance venue? We just received one of these from out of town relatives as a gift and it's something we appreciate and will definitely use.

If someone gave me a gift card to a music venue that I could use to buy concert tickets I would think it was the greatest forking gift in the history of gift giving! For Real!

Those are great ideas. Venue gift card and chocolate (which is less weird to non vegans than non-dairy cheese, but still goes with wine... port anyway).

In the UK you can buy generic Theatre Tokens that can be used in theatres across the country, that way you're not limited to one venue. Maybe there is something similar in your area?
