I’ve been away for a couple of days, and as we’ve discovered, the I-Pod ‘gift’ was not an April Fool’s Joke, at least a joke that we were ‘let in’ upon. In another thread, Tranter mentioned a couple of gifts that might have been a little more, shall we say, appropriate.

Let’s say that you’ve been selected at random to meet Her Majesty, and have been granted an unlimited account to purchase a gift to mark the occasion. If you would accept the invitation, and bearing in mind that you will represent your country, what memento would you offer to mark the occasion. (Question open to all, Down Unders, and Across the ponds!) I would try to discover if she had a favorite liquor, and would offer the equilivent offering from this country.
