    Hey, I always find it very difficult to buy a gift for my father, he is a devoted :apple: and Mac fan since the Apple II+ and almost anything that he wants he buys on his own.

    His :apple: gear:
    - PowerMac G5 + ACD 23"
    - MBP 15"
    - 8Gb iPhone
    - 60Gb iPod
    - many HDD
    - AEBS
    - Airport Express
    - :apple:TV

    I am targeting something under $70.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    It would be hard to go wrong with a gift card for Apple. :)

    I would second the gift card. A more creative route would be to build him a MacQuarium.

    iTunes gift card would be great too- especially with an Apple TV.

    He doesn't live in the US so the apple store gift wouldn't be that great for him.
    I think I will go with an iTunes giftcard+ something else, maybe a book, any suggestion in this field?

    Thanks for your suggestions!

    What does he carry his MBP around in? A new laptop bag maybe......

    Does he use public wi-fi? A gift card to where he hangs out........

    A goofy Apple shirt says "I know you're a big geek, but I still love you."

    He does have a nice leather bag for the MBP.
    He uses the MBP at work and he has wifi, never goes out around the city.

    Where can I buy those shirts?

    Thanks!

    Try some of the Apple Collectables at The Missing Bite:

    My wife got me the Apple Fleece a couple of years ago, and people are always asking me where I got it...
