Xmas gift for my brother's weirdo girlfriend...
My younger brother is in his mid-twenties and he's currently dating a 19 year old girl. She's very sweet but she is an odd one. I think she's just very immature, even for a 19 year old. Quick example: I was visiting my parents and she was there, and my mom comes in with a new handbag to show me and the girl says something akin to "My dragon senses are tingling!" to which I replied "WhatNow?" and she said again, as if I'm supposed to know, "My dragon senses are tingling. I can tell it's precious!". I said "oooooook". And that's how that exchange ended.
She's just an odd duck, but she's 19 and I know I wasn't super cool at that age either. The point is that she's very sweet and she's good for my brother who is a nerd/recluse, so I want to get her something for Christmas. Nothing expensive. I don't want to have another conversation about her "tingly dragon nerves" or whatever. Maybe under $30? She is NOT a girly girl. She dresses like a boy and she rarely does her hair, she never wears makeup or jewelry (and she's mentioned that she has a ton of very fine jewelry at home that she never wears-so the fact that she doesn't wear jewelry isn't because she doesn't have it). I don't like giving gift cards because I think that's tacky and the fact that she doesn't like mani/pedis or cleanliness or grooming seems to knock out all those generic Bath & Body type things. She likes to read, but the last time I bought her a book, she had already read it. So now what? I'm at a loss, nesters. Help!
