Are we planning on getting Matt a gift when the tour begins? I think it would be nice to send him something for at least opening and closing night. What do you guys think?

Definitely. I remember in Season 5 for Elliott Yamin we had a huge banner that we all signed that traveled from city to city. Don't know EXACTLY how they were able to pull it off, but he did receive it in the end! So we should definitely hook something up if we can.

Well I know during season 4 Constantine received a ton of gifts from his fans. I believe they either sent it to the venue or someone would take it there.

Any gift ideas guys?

In the opening show the closing show and maybe the Michigan shows? I really don't know what to do but I think that the four of those shows will mean a little bit more than the others.

I agree! We should definetly consider those 4 shows.

He really seems to love hats and necklas. I was thinking maybe a nice charm for a necklas maybe one of a piano and one of a fedora...lol?

I just called the venue to see how we can go about delivering the gift. They said we can either mail it in or someone can drop it off to the receptionist a couple of days before the show. I think it is best to drop it off so if anyone is willing to do this please let me know. Thank You!

If we want to still do this we need to start organizing it now. The first show is July 5th. I'd hate for him to be the only Idol not to receive a gift.

Are we going to mail it in or have someone drop it off at the venue. Who is going to do the shopping? What in the world will we get him? Who will take care of the money?

I am not a great orgainzer so if someone wants to take this over I'm game for that!

If someone is going to the show and is going to try and meet Matt at the buses when it arrives, we can give it to him personally, then. I don't know, I like giving it to him like that rather than having it delivered. Last year at the buses early, I remember seeing Jason and Archie with arm full of gifts. Poor Archie looked like he was going to fall over.

If there is no one here going to the first show, then delivering to the venue would be the best bet, obviously. lol.

Yes that would be great but that is a gamble. What happens if for some reason the person didn't get to see Matt at the buses? If it is delivered either by mail or personally to the venue then we would know it was given to him.

I've been thinking about the gifts and I really do like the idea of charms for his necklace or bracelet. But I was thinking that we should get something big and over the top so everyone can see it the first week. What do you think about a large Disney Character (he like the Mad Hatter)? Or maybe Mickey and put a Fedora and a Giraud Squad Tshirt on him? I was also thinking we can put together a photobook chronicling his journey from Kzoo to auditions, to AI. I can do that but the only issue is that the photos are fairly poor quality so I would need to keep then fairly small. ?Can you buy some of the photos in better quality from one of the websites? I'm fairly into photography so I've made these books before but the photos we have can only be printed as fairly small thumbnails. If we can get better photos and decide to do this, we can add comments from us underneath the photos or even write some letters (or poems) to be included.

I love this idea.....something he can wear everyday (he's sentimental, right?), it's easy to ship. I'm in for some $....let me know the logistics.

Yay someone talking about the gift! We really need to get on this. There are only a couple of weeks left. There are 4 shows we should definitely gift at. The first and last one and then the 2 Michigan shows. So how are we going to organize this?

I think the photo album chronicaling his journey is a great gift idea for the last show. I would be more than happy to help with this! But we should definitely start now because this will take sometime! Maybe if we get some good video from the tour we can even make him a DVD of some of his performances.

Well tonight I will go online and see what I can find. Maybe for the first show we could get him one of a piano, the first Michigan show one of a fedora, and then the third Michigan show one of a disney character like sgr suggested and then the last show the photo album. What do you think?

OK so I thought I would help Jenna out and do an internet search for pendants. Can't say I'm having much luck on men's piano pendants. If he was a guitarist, gay, goth, all good - piano, not so much. Here are a couple of other ideas - what do you guys think?

Mind body soul http://gilletts.com.au/product_info.php?cPath=23_264&products_id=127220

Not sure of the budget so here is a more economical version http://www.amazon.com/MICROPHONE-Silver-PEWTER-Pendant-Necklace/dp/B000FXXRSO/ref=sr_1_551?ie=UTF8&s=jewelry&qid=1245114620&sr=1-551

Piano Key (can't tell if male or not) http://www.amazon.com/NOVICA-Necklace-Piano-Key/dp/B001JKNK5C/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=jewelry&qid=1245114965&sr=1-1

I just like this stuff but can't find anything unless we go with a cross http://www.tribalhollywood.com/StoreFront.bok

I'm so NOT creative! I checked out Tiffany & Co.....they don't have a piano or fedora but they do have a horse shoe for good luck. They also have dog tag charms that could be engraved. Not sure how much is appropriate to spend but I love the packaging from Tiffany's....even small gifts are special.

I saw some of those but my concern was that many were small and dainty and look like women's jewellery. I was trying to search for men's jewellery and wasn't having much luck with the piano charm.
As far as the Tiffany Dog Tags - its a great idea except that its what Carrie Underwood gave all the top 10 - that's the necklace he wears most of the time. I kind of like the mind body soul one since its similar to the title of his second album. What budget did you have in mind? Where are you collecting money?

If someone has a paypal account, can the contributors just pay via cc to paypal? I don't have one but I know that's how you pay on e-bay.

I think the Giraud Squad already gifted him dog tails... lol I mean tags! I thought some of those piano ones were pretty nice. I think we should probably actually look in the jewelry stores and I'm sure we will find something nice.

I have a paypal account. I'm not sure about a budget of course the more who participate the less money we each will have to spend. Should we do one gift at a time? After the first show we can start collecting for the second gift.

Whatever is easiest for the person collecting. If paypal works, that should be pretty easy. In any case, count me in.

I can't tell how large/small it is, but it's nice. If we collect a lot of $, here's another site where we can order some things. Some cute stuff!
