Gift suggestions for a Palin fan? Help! by Hilary on 14 November 2007 3:51pm
 
Hi all,

My brother's possibly Michael Palin's biggest fan. Of course that means he's already bought himself the latest book and all the DVDs. So *what can I get him for Christmas?!?*

Is there somewhere I can get the Michael Palin's Travels calendar? Sweatshirt? Fan club magazine?

Help!

Thanks!

Hilary

I should have said - he's mentally handicapped and lives in a small communal home, so all his travelling is strictly vicarious. It's got to be something he can look at, or wear, or read, or something. (And he's impossible to buy for. At my wits' end here...)

You could write to the office and ask for a signed photo, maybe.

Great idea ! Send a letter to this address :
Prominent Palin Productions Ltd.,
34 Tavistock Street,
London.
WC2E 7PB
And I'm sure yo'll get the signed pic. I did !

Does he have the 80 Days board game?

There's also one available on eBay at the mo item #200172606217

There's a board game? Fantastic! You may just have saved my bacon, bless you.

Any other suggestions? He expects birthday presents, too...

Oops, just remove the semi-colon from the link to view the item.

A friend of mine used to have it so I can personally vouch for it being damn fine prezzie material ;o)

I shall keep my thinking cap on!

Does he have the audiobooks? They're always a wonderful bedtime accompaniment.

Mini-MP3 players with enough memory to store all Michael's audiobooks cost next to nothing these days and they're ridiculously easy to use.

Is your brother into the Python humour? I got a hilarious talking keyring on Ebay (well Phyll bought it for me actually), with Mr Gumby on the front and it talks (Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisisition etc...) there used to be quite a lot of Python novelty stuff there, you could maybe check it out.

"What on Earth" catalog has a good selection of Python gifts. Go to:

http://www.whatonearthcatalog.com/

...and type Monty Python into the search box at the top. It's an American co. BTW. And don't worry, most of us on this forum are also mentally challenged.

Good luck to you and your brother! Happy shopping!
