Okay so my SO’s 30th bday is coming up, and I want to get him an awesome gift. At first, I thought maybe I’d get an Ipad since he doesn’t have one yet and seems to be interested in owning one. But THEN, I thought what if I get him tickets to Texas vs. OU college football game. He is a HUGE texas fan, and I know he would DIE to be able to go to this game. The only thing is, two tickets to this would probably cost more than the Ipad. I’m not rich, so I would barely afford it. Another option is to buy tickets to any other texas game. It would cost more than half the amount less then the Texas vs. OU game, and he would like it, but he wouldn’t LOVE it like he would LOVE the texas/ou game. This is kinda hard for me to decide right now, and I have to decide soon because tickets are selling out. So, what do ya’ll think?
Ipad for about 400 or 500 dollars.
2 texas vs ou tickets about 600 dollars.
or 2 tickets to any other texas game about 250 to 300 dollars.
So should I get him what he would LOVE and make myself broke? lol

I’m sorry…tickets to a COLLEGE football game are THAT expensive???????
Is $600 for one ticket or two?
I’d go with tickets over the iPad. Also, my fiance has a shirt that has the square root sign with 900 under it, which he wore for his 30th birthday. That might be a good additional present!

@peachacid: I don’t think all tickets are that expensive, but that particular game is very popular apparently because they are big rivals. The 600 is for 2. I saw the lowest price at $295 a ticket, but I just saw another website that has them for $243 a ticket.
I like the tshirt idea a lot. Maybe i’ll have to find it! thanks!

If he is a practical person, I’d say iPad, I have one, I love it, and you get a lot of use out of it (in theory).
Maybe start a poll?

@peachacid: Or maybe I just have no clue what I’m doing, and I don’t know how to search for tickets. lol. maybe i’ll ask one of his friends to help me if i end up doing that.

It is all about that thought. If I were you I would get the Texas vrs whatever game and get him some Texus gear for the game and take him out to dinner!
