I am just wondering if there is any other phrase that sounds less strong or formal than " bear in mind". I am trying to ask my friends to buy me a hoody when it is on sale. Is there any phrase better than saying," Could you bear in mind buying me a hoody/sweater, when you guys see a discount on them?" I looked up on my thesaurus but i could find "consider, beware, mind".

You can say "keep in mind."
Don't you ever forget to buy... bu this would be a little strong Emotion: smile

let's see.. i'd be glad/happy/merry if one of you guys could afford buying me a hoody..

i don't know.. if you are friends, then the first choice won't be very rude. or will it?
