You can never go wrong with giving a friend some wheel shields. On sale for $10 off.
WheelShields on sale
thats like giving a child underwear for christmas, except more useless. Invest in a new set of wheels man, something he can core easily. Or his favorite wheels in his favorite duro. But not wheel shields IMO because they're useless. No offense to those who like them, but thats how I feel about them (and how most others feel)
