Birthday worries


So, here is the deal. I am really bad at buying birthday gifts. The last time I went to the mall to buy a gift, I bought myself a whole bunch of things I did'nt need and still hadnt bought the gift. I turned 24 this year and I really didnt think that people would buy me presents. Which means that I have to buy them something too. I dont mind the cost, but its the "thinking what to buy" that bothers me most. Now, if it was one of my best friends from high school, I could get her anything knowing well that she would like it. Or for that matter, get her nothing at all if i didnt have the time. And she wouldnt mind at all. But what do u buy someone who has very specific tastes in everything ? I am so scared that nothing I buy will be good enough. At least for women there is jewellery accesories and cosmetics and i feel confident knowing I have pretty good taste :). What about a guy ? S has all the gizmos he wants / needs. His taste in clothes is exteremely upscale and boring :D !! He doesnt read much and i bought him books last year anyways. He burns all the music he likes himself. His house is well furnished for a bachelor pad. And a friend is already buying him wine glasses. He has beer mugs. And he doesnt drink martini so a martini shaker is outta question and he doesnt do shots either, so shot glasses are out. I am running out of ideas. Might end up with a gift certificate ( i hate doing it... i need'nt have wasted time thinking if i had to do that ). Between him and his roommate, they have most movies that youd watch repeatedly. Anyways, I am sure Ill come up with something. :). Suggestions anyone ???
