It’s not too late in that I haven’t bought one. It might be too late in that idk if my brain can absorb more bike specs

I think if I’m serious about a light bike I need to stay away from the step through style, but I like the upright posture and riding it felt a little more “solid” than riding a bike. Probably because it weighs so much

I really liked the commuter bikes that aren’t road bikes. Sturdy enough to ride over grass, not as heavy as a step-through. Regret getting my step-through instead of the lighter one.

I used to have this style before I went to an ebike and was really happy with it. They’re definitely better for pedaling- better mechanics and body posture.

Lands End swim shorts are the best I’ve found!

It is once again my mother’s birthday and I am once again asking for your advice. Has anyone recently come across/received a nice gift basket for less than about $100?

She doesn’t really go for sweets so something in the wine-and-cheese family would be optimal. My father will be getting Jeni’s ice cream forever.

I like the aunt Laurie’s gift baskets, because of their mission, and the ones I’ve gifted have all been very lovely but they were non alcoholic.

ETA: not to say that I know all about their org, just that I like that they’re not Amazon or whatever.

How about a graduation gift for my step-niece who is 17, loves dance and family and fashion, graduating high school, and starting university in the fall?

The girlfriend collective top is a big one that we couldn’t reasonably get for our teen’s christmas.

I totally knew it was collective not collection. There are tonnes of fashion brands we can’t reasonably get here. So I’d say something on those lines.

For sure wads of cash haha. A meaningful book about some aspect of life (finance, relationships, whatever) if you want to up the razzle dazzle.

Ooh I think she’d like the top! (For a second I thought the Girlfriend Collection was a new Taylor Swift album or something.)

A good weekender or carry on size luggage with thoughtful features (computer, shoe, water pockets, etc). Even if she’s living at home or home is across the country, there are lots of travel opportunities in college… Spring Break, volunteering, interviews, visiting friends…

(Cash is good, too, just branching out on ideas. :blush:)

ETA I know you said you’d have to ship, I was thinking this is an order online to their address kind of thing. May also be out of budget. A nice travel toiletry set could be a more modest alternative in the same vein.
