I was thinking... why don't we give them one big thing and then one small thing?
Like with Key, we could give him an art related gift w/a few mixed CDs as a small gift or some jewelry as a small gift. I'm not into art so I'm not sure on what art-related things to give him, honestly.
And with Jjong, we can buy him a sibelius 7
(it's apparently the best music composition tool right now and even top producers and such use it) but it's major expensive & if we buy the reference guide with it as well, it would be practically $700. But if it's too expensive, there's other music composing tools to buy. And for a small gift, we can get him a hat or a necklace.
For Taemin, maybe we can get him a tie and a rosary or something of the like and probably a sketchbook or journal so that he can always write in it in between the traveling and then include a collection of mangas we recommend him to check out (w/some of the mangas he enjoys also in the collection)? I can't think of a "larger" and "smaller" gift for him but rather just gifts in general.
I was wondering, what if we also get a rosetta stone for all three of them to share and learn their japanese on? The only downside I can think of is that they might already have one, seeing how popular the item is for language-learners >.< Or we can just get like 2-3 rosetta stones for the whole group to share... that way even Jinki and Minnie are included in this and the whole group can benefit from it.
My gift ideas are probably too expensive though
But if the donations keep up (I wish I could donate but I'm broke :[) then I think we'd be able to cover some of the expensive gift suggestions...
Like for example maybe buying a fancy looking wine bottle and filling the whole thing with banana milk hehehe that would be funny. I could imagine his expression when he opens it, along with the member's expressions lols
I REALLY LIKE THIS IDEA. LIKE, A LOT.
It would make Taeminnie and SHINee laugh and it would also be pretty symbolic. Plus, a note could be attached to explain why he was sent that. I looove it
