The Bitterly Unemployed Nephew

The Bitterly Unemployed Nephew

It’s not entirely your mopey 23-year old nephew’s fault that he’s still living at home. Who knew there would come a time when a B.A. from Amherst and a winning spree on College Jeopardy wasn’t enough to crack the job market? Still, he should be punished for not being cooler about the whole thing. Doesn’t he know how much would you give to be so free? To backpack through Vietnam, looking they way you did at 23? A traditional gift for the young and ambitious, like this leather briefcase ($895, tanthony.com) might be just the thing to push him over the edge. If you’re feeling generous, put a flask of vodka inside, wrapped in a hand-written note that says, “Not all who wander are lost.”
