    Gift Ideas for a Landscape Architect

    My girlfriend just got accepted into her design program and I'm getting her a gift but I'm drawing a major brain fart on a creative idea.

    I want it to be landscape architecture related.

    A plant!


    Remember, you're unique. Just like everyone else.

    Until further notice, the Big 12 tournament is best. There's an experience here. Not just the teams -- the feel, the vibe, the establishments. Iowa State not only won the pregame -- filling the nearby Power & Light District -- it won the whole damn scene.

    A really large rock. Then call it a "decorative lawn piece".

    Dude, I've yet to have a creative gift idea for my woman yet, and if I come across one, I'm not sharing.

    Subscription to LAM (landscape Architecure magazine).

    Landscape Architecture Magazine

    Also, as a mistake an above poster made, stop using/ don't the word "decorate". Most people in most design professions HATE that word. I know I do.
