Perfect gift for a brand new Human who fought through a rough patch?

My very best bestie in the whole wide world just had a baby girl. Hooray! The first week of her little life was Very, Very Scary, but the stubborn little nugget fought her way through and is now home and safe and ready to get on with Life and Growing and Becoming a Someone. I've already made a donation in her name to the amazing children's hospital that saved her life, but I'd like to send a physical gift for the little monkey, too. What should I get? [more inside]

Good replacement for a Nexus 4

My wife's Nexus 4 has died (due to an accident) and we are looking for a replacement. The Nexus 5 would be the obvious choice but is out of stock in the Play store (and given that the Nexus 6 has been announced may not be coming back). What should she get? [more inside]

Sunlight alarm clock, or remote controllable LEDs? Adult & Kid editions

I want a sunlight alarm clock for me and one for my four-year-old. We've all been having trouble getting up in the dark and it's been negatively affecting our morning routine. So I could buy a couple. On the other hand, those remote controllable LED bulbs intrigue me. Maybe that would be more fun? Please share your experiences with either/or, and help me decide.

The floppening of fashion

I need help finding non-floppy tops to wear to work. As a petite woman with a nice figure, all I can find is tops that are loose and baggy; I'm looking for clothes that are a little more form-fitting. [more inside]

I have all-clad discount paranoia

Can I trust that the All-Clad pots and pans I bought at TJ Maxx yesterday are the real deal? At the time, I felt like I'd struck gold. Now I'm worried it's the fool's kind. They didn't come with any box, warranty card, or inspection card, and were absurdly cheap compared to everything I can find online--including irregulars. I'm going insane. TJ Maxx wouldn't sell counterfeits, right? [more inside]

Special effect lenses with a corrective prescription?

I've been trying to locate some "white out"-style special effect contact lenses (the kind that make your iris and pupil a milky white, like Storm in the X-Men films when she uses her powers), but I've been having a hard time finding something that fits my prescription. Does anyone know of a reputable store that sells these kinds of SFX lenses with corrective power? [more inside]

Cheap indoor "searchlights" for a party

We're throwing a hollywood-themed party, and we'd like to have 2-4 plain white spotlights moving across the walls. To my surprise, though, I can't find anything like that for under at least a thousand dollars, even in the DJ lighting world. We don't need anything super bright or controllable, just little oscillating LED lamps. Would rather stay under $50. Please help!
