I am not sure, but that sounds right. Can you read a bit further and see if it makes more sense? Sometimes that helps.

I usually pick stuff that he would be good at getting, like a boombox for my Ipod or something related to the kitchen like an attachment for my Kitchenaid. And then of course, diamonds :)
