It is not so long ago, the birthday of my good friend Thomas was at the door and I therefore equally before the ever-popular question of what gift I might celebrate this special occasion. And as if it was not always hard enough to develop a reasonably appropriate gift idea with which one can remain sustainable in the birthday child to some memory, it was also a very special birthday – because Thomas was forty years old. Well, you say there are certainly worse things than to get good friends a present – you can also say just because you know Thomas is not: if I Thomas described with very few words would have, I would meet with the name of the obsessional mouse ball cleaner probably full in black, I think you know what I mean. And what do you think what happens with such a panic when the fortieth birthday approaches! After all, Thomas had suffered a nervous breakdown moderate if to adopt the replacement battery by his alarm clock or before the return of deposit bottles in the beverage market were not rinsed properly – by which I mean, however, the water bottles. If such a person is forty years old, is just to choose the right birthday prompted a highly sensitive approach, as even the slightest carelessness can have fatal consequences for the continued life of the soul of such a meticulous planner’s life.
In retrospect, I must say that the search for the right gift for Thomas but it was not as difficult as I had initially feared – my brother gave me the tip to look around a little bit on the Internet because he was firmly convinced that I would find somewhere as something appropriate for Thomas. And in fact, it took not long until I landed in a very personal gift shop, where there were a number of very original birthday gifts, some of which could be even more personalized. I will not tell you now what I gift idea for my dear friend Thomas chose – only this much: He has really got the measure, and with a little luck this gift has helped even his small part in making a major life crisis could be prevented.
