I am going to college next year and my parents have offered to buy me a graduation present. I would like something that I'll be able to keep for the rest of my life, and that is relatively useful (my sister got a rug. . .it's very very nice, but, you know).

I've thought about a nice guitar, since that is one of my main passions, but I'd like to see if anyone here has any thoughts?

I've been thinking about a watch as well. I like the uncluttered of Panerais (though will never be able to afford one), as well as the Omega Seamaster GMT. I like brown leather straps, and would like if it was Swiss, since that's where my father's side of the family is from. Also must be at or below $2000.

Any ideas? What was your high school graduation present?

I believe I got a platinum pat on the back.

What about a great pair of cufflinks? They'll last forever, and you can even pass them down to your son decades from now? And hey, every man needs at least one good pair of 'links!

Hmm, my high school graduation present was a card and a packet of student loan applications, so I can't really relate. However, I second the suggestion for some really nice cufflinks; as long as you don' t lose them, they should last you forever and become a family heirloom.
