Thinking of a Grad Gift

I am not sure if I will ask dad to buy me a set of good culinary books, a Canon DSLR, or aluminum briefcase? Mom told me that in a few days he will be back soon so we better hurry up in making our wishlist or they will not be granted.

She also said that I should consider it as a graduation gift. I only want simple things this time, probably a pair of new runners and a good book to read. I don't want to give dad a hard time carrying so many things in his luggage.
