    gift ideas for my 21-year-old brother

    My baby bro turns 21 today, and I have no $$ to get him a luxe gift of any sort. he's a creative, witty type of lovable guy and i want to make him something special.

    as any collge kid these days, he's big on IM. what sets him apart are his hilarious "away" messages (a few words or line of text that is displayed next to his name when he's not as his computer). unbeknownst to him, i have been collecting his random and LOL away messages for the past few years (ex: "honk if you love geese"). i think they are a lot of inside jokes that will remind him of his college years for decades to come.

    now my question is: how do i display them in a crafty way? print them on t-shirts? magnets? postcards? print them up and put them in a frame? i want something personal, fun, not-girly that he will get a kick out of.

    any ideas?

    thank you!

    First off, I would collect 21 of them ;)

    Magnets are a good idea. That was my first thought. Guys can't get enough t-shirts either.

    I've seen mugs at the craft store that you can write on w/ a special pen (they have all colors of ink). You do something to them afterward which sets the ink. You could handwrite a bunch of them all over the mug in different sizes & styles. He could use it as a mug or a change cup or a pen holder or anything. My husband has three mugs for "stuff" on his dresser.

    I agree with edenza, the magnets and t-shirts sound like the best idea. Most guys aren't big fans of framed art.
