The place to kick back, relax, post general bullshit, and grill a few on the BBQ. Whatever doesn't fit into another forum would go here. We periodically go through and move posts to the correct forum, but we do charge a case of Beer every time we have to.

Work colleague is 30 in a week or so. I've chipped in for the group prezzie but I thought I should get some thing from the wife and me.

She gets married in 7 weeks and is going on honeymoon to Vegas. So I did think of a Vegas guidebook, but that's a bit lame, it'll do as a plan B.

Any suggestions? Just little things.
Can you buy Vegas chips online?

Travel games, good call. I wonder if you get travel roulette?

Works every time for any wedding:

Buy a sexy negligee - put it in a box marked HIS
Buy any kind of humorous sexy item relating to males (those elephant trunk underwear from victoria's secret work very nicely) - put in a box marked HERS

Have a great laugh at the reception, & wish 'em well and good luck in "Lost Wages" from me!

Here ya go ASP

http://www.booklasvegaslimos.com/

Book something for them. I'm pretty sure they get a ride from the airport to the hotel. If not book reseverations for a limo ride there and back.

The going tip for limo from airport is $5 per person and $3 per bag. Same at the hotel if the buggers will bring the bags up for you.

So get some U.S. cash and put it in the card with a note to use for tips on their trip.

Yea but if you get them a limo the cash is a few tens and like 20 ones - it's not so much the amount but the convince of having small change to tip with.

Don't know if she'd see the funny side of that.
