Hi everyone.

 

To tell you the truth I'm not a Sherlock fan.

I just signed up in this forum to find a gift for one of my friends who is completly in love with the Sherlock's universe.

I don't knew where post it so I put it here.

If anyone can help me I would be grateful to him.

I'm pretty sure you have ideas. ;)

 

Thank you in advance.

 

Also sorry for my bad English please correct me if you found any fault

Hi, Lieyt, and welcome to Sherlock Forum anyhow! :welcome:

It would be very helpful (but not completely necessary) for us to know whether your friend is a fan of Arthur Conan Doyle's original Sherlock Holmes stories, or of the BBC show Sherlock, or some other adaptation of ACD's stories, or several of those things. Also, about how much money are you planning to spend?

Hi Lieyt! That's very thoughtful of you!

 

Also, is your friend male or female? I suspect there are more gifts for females.


It's this, or Cluedo.

Hi!

If your friend uses to rewatch the episodes and if he doesn't have dvds of the series, maybe you could buy one or two or how many you want; I'm sure he would appreciate it!

I'd suggest this:

Good quality with reasonable price, small and special enough, it has become my regular companion, work for both genders. You can just google it to find where to buy it from.

 

I'm sure others have good suggestions too,

if.... you actually bother to check back this thread.  <_<

I admit, that is my favorite Sherlock thing, aside from the DVD's. :) Although the Sherlock backpack I got from JP has gotten the most use.

Ow, is it some kind of secret trade? Why didn't I get any? Hmmm?
Who should I headbutt to get a Sherlock backpack? :P
