Birthday gifts are a major part of the birthday celebrations. Many times they are the focus for the day for the birthday person celebrating their birthday, especially for young children. Children are usually very excited when their birthday comes around since they expect to be gifted with awesome gifts. Somehow gifts are much more awesome when we are young than when we grow and get into adulthood and gifts stop becoming such a big deal.
My younger brother is turning seventeen in a few days’ time and although he is not exactly a small child any more, I need to buy him a cool gift. My brother is a cool buddy and our relationship is much stronger since we have seven years between us. Due to this huge difference, I have always been quite responsible for him in many things including teaching him many things as he grew up. Being his big brother he has also always looked up to me. As such I am not ready to let him down on his birthday.
I have always bought my small bro gifts on his birthday. As he grows older I am often at sea at what I should get him for his birthday. Many times I do not know what to buy since what I think would suit him he already has or I fear that it might be too underage or overage for him. Luckily, he always seems to be quite elated at whatever I end up getting him. Again, I am not ready to mess up my good record.
Since leaving our parents’ home after I started working and had to move closer to my workplace, my brother and I have not been able to maintain a bond as close as we had before. There before I was able to easily know what things he liked at that particular time of his life but now I am not quite sure.
One thing that I know for sure is that he is quite enthusiastic about guitar playing. He discovered his guitar playing talents about a year ago and he has been taking guitar classes from then. He has been borrowing an electric acoustic guitar which he is always practicing with in his room. Our mum once complained that if he continued with such enthusiasm for the guitar he would not be able to ever have a girlfriend.
Due to this current interest in the guitar, I am thinking that getting him his own guitar on his seventeenth birthday would be a great for him. I especially want to get him an electric guitar which would really impress him.
I do not know much about electric guitars since I am not even good at music. I however love listening to music and I especially love rock music which is hugely based on the guitar. I once heard my favorite music star comment on how he loved his Fender Starcaster electric guitar; and since this is the only guitar I know about, I figure this is what I will buy for him as a birthday gift.
