My favorite pastime since a young age has always been wandering the aisles of bookstores. Have you been to a Barnes and Noble lately? Half of it is books, a fourth CDs and DVDs, and the remaining aisles are filled with toys and board games, which is great when buying gifts for someone who kinda likes a particular franchise.
But when one of your closest friends is a serious toy collector with a Batman fixation, buying unique gifts is hard. Without a doubt, he probably already has every Batman thing that a B&N could possibly offer.
Artists really have an easy time with giving gifts.
