Ribbons, Boxes and Bows

by phatgurl320

Want to get some gifts for your Neofriend, but don’t know what to get them? Here’s some ideas to get you started.

Battles
If your Neofriend battles a lot, I recommend some of these gifts:

Novas, Ultranovas, Dark Novas – These are great for a one time use gift, or for a package of little gifts.

Codestones – What’s more original than Codestones? A whole set makes a great gift, unless you battle the person a lot, then it might not be so good…lol :)

Faeries – These are pretty easy to get with Tombola and the Shrine.

Weapons – Unless your willing to hand over a lot of cash for a Grand Lightning Beam or another practically unbuyable weapon, then stick with the ideas above.

Toys
These don’t really do anything but they’re still nice to give away.

Pet Plushies – Aww, what’s nicer than getting your friend a cute little plushie that matches their pet? Just hope their pet isn’t painted, or this could get expensive.

Usukis – If it’s for an Usuki collector, get the more expensive ones because if you buy a bunch of cheap ones chances are they already have them.

Furniture
If your going to buy furniture, get it from the Igloo Garage Sale, it’s usually half price.

Sets – It’s nice to have a room with furniture that’s all the same, so try and buy all the furniture of one type, like a tiger bed, tiger sofa, and tiger rug.

Individuals – I recommend beds or sofas, because they are usually more expensive and are harder to get.

Grooming, Clothing, and Gardening
This is only if you’re really really poor…

Makeup – I doubt your Neofriend would be very fond of this, but at least keep everything one color.

Clothing – Something stylish is all I can say.

Gardening – I guess if you just want to do something nice, then some flowers would be perfect.

Cards and Gifts
This is another one for people low on cash.

Gift Shop – Hey, you can always buy your Neofriend some gift boxes and wrapping paper ahead of time!

Cards – I’d check out your friends NeoDeck before coming to any decisions.

Food
Cheap but useful.

Chocolate – Chances are, your Neofriend will end up selling it… lol.

Christmas Foods – Get your friend a turkey if you want, but I think you can do better than that.

Pet
The expensive stuff.

Paint Brushes – This is probably the number one thing I’d recommend. It’s the most useful, and you Neofriend won't use it against you like battle items

Morphing Potions – These are better off bought on half price day

PetPets – Another great present; however, these can get very expensive.

PetPet Paint Brushes – The only problem with these is that not many PetPets can be painted, and the simpler ones cost a lot more.

Books – You know what the teachers always say, “Get some reading in over Christmas!”

Packages
These are suggestions for people who want to get more than one of the presents mentioned above for their Neofriend.

PetPet Package – PetPet and PetPet Paint Brush.

Battle Package – A Codestone, Faerie, and Nova.

Codestone Package – Full set of Codestones.

Faerie Package – Full set of Faeries.

Furniture Package – Full set of one type of furniture.

Custom Package – Whatever you want!
