Over the next year, my friend will be doing a lot of air travel with her one-year-old child in tow. What are some useful products that will make the whole airport/airplane process easier for both of them?

Gift for a camping enthusiast

My aunt is a big camper. And we're talking serious wilderness mountain/desert camping, not loading up the RV for a weekend. She shops regularly for gear and thus has most of the basic things. I need to get a Christmas present for her. What are some objects that serious campers/hikers can never have too many or too much of? Alternately, what would make a good gift as an object that is more attractive or otherwise superior to the basic utility version? (I'm thinking here of like a really good folding knife, but I am purely spitballing here.) Price range would be ~$50.

Gift for someone starting a new life overseas

I have a friend who is extremely social and environmental conscious. She has been an activist for most of her life not because she woke up one day and decide to be one, but because she sees where the need is and get busy. She is an Pediatric Nurse Practitioner who volunteered for a month duration in Haiti after earthquake hit in 2010. During her service at Haiti, she saw what she was doing was just a stop gap measure and not really in any way helping Haitian to better their medical service and delivery. So she came back and got busy with getting a master degree in Public Health. Now she got a job of a lifetime to go over to Rwanda for Partner's in Health to oversee and train nurses in 3 hospitals and 30 clinics. This assignment is indefinite, meaning she will be starting a brand new life. [more inside]

Best Wireless Digital Photo Frames?

For Christmas, I'd like to purchase digital photo frames for family members that would allow me to update the photos wirelessly. The reviews for several of the digital wi-fi frames are awful on Amazon. Do you have any recommendations for digital photo frames that specifically come with wi-fi? Or another digital photo frame that would be easy enough for non-tech-savvy people to use? Thank you.

Gift and/or ideas for girlfriend running PHL marathon

My GF is running her first-ever marathon next weekend in Philadelphia. I'm looking for creative or interesting suggestions for either a gift or something I can do that she might like (beyond flowers at the finish and a massage, both of which are a done deal). Any runners out there have a specific suggestion--maybe something sweet or thoughtful that was done for you after you finished? Thanks!

what do i choose for a gift from my crush that hasn't been given before?

Christmas Hamper Help Needed - Wholefoods Edition

I pride myself on being the best gift giver ever and I think I have nailed the idea for my Secret Santa this year, a Wholefoods Cookbook with accompanying produce. The thing is, I don't really know what wholefoods are, and the book is a week or 2 away (being sent from OS). I need this gift in the post around mid November so want to start my shopping for the produce now. Please help me, what kinds of awesome things can I put in the hamper? It can be snacks and grocery type things for cooking. Nothing that needs to be refrigerated. Im thinking dried beans, wholemeal pasta, that kind of thing. The book is 'Cooking with Wholefoods: A guide to healthy natural ingredients, and how to use them with 100 delicious recipes... by Nicola Graimes.' Thank you.

Book recommendations for an 11-year-old girl available on Amazon.ca?

My niece celebrates her eleventh birthday soon. She loves to read. She lives in Canada; I live in the UK: for convenience’s sake I’d like to buy her books from Amazon.ca as a gift. Besides reading, her previous interests have included princesses, ballet and cupcakes—the latter leading me to order to some volumes from The Cupcake Diaries as last year’s gift. What’s new and cool in the world of books if you’re Canadian and eleven?

If I could take burritos to Wisconsin, I would

I'm visiting a friend in Milwaukee, WI and would like to bring something from LA (or California in general) that maybe one would not be able to easily obtain in Milwaukee. She's been to LA before, and recently had a baby, so at the very least I will take adorable baby stuff, but a region-specific gift would be fun, if I could only think of something worthwhile! It has to be something I can carry with me on a plane.

Explain Capital Gain/ Loss as though I'm 3

Great Aunt Sue gives me a ring. She doesn't wear it because it was given to her by an ex many moons ago, so she doesn't care what I do with it either. I don't like it, so I decide to sell it. It is vintage and very valuable. Turns out it is worth 20K fair market. I sell it for just that to an individual. How does that work as far as capital gains/ loss go? Is it considered a gift or income? Does it get reported, do I report it, do they, should she have for giving away the jewelry, does the bank flag the deposit and report it? No clue. Everything I have read is in regards to stocks, real estate, or inherited stuff. Can you explain this to me? This is all hypothetical, I'm just curious, so please don't send me off to an accountant/ lawyer/ taxman.

Something Pepe le Pew would approve

What is a thoughtful gift (in the $100 range) for someone who loves perfume, but whom I do not know very well? I obviously wouldnt choose a scent for her but would still like to give her sonething relating to her love of perfume. She is in the UK and I am in the USA, so if I send her a gift certificate to a perfumerie it needs to be one she can visit in London. However if there is a non-gift card present you can recommend as well, so much the better. Thanks!

A Gift for the Tattooed Lady

I have a friend who is very proud of her tattoos. I would like to get her a special gift. My first thought was a photography session, but her brother is a photographer and has already given her such sessions in the past. I had a crazy idea and I was wondering if there's any reality to it: Is there any such thing as scanning tattoos? For instance, like pressing the body part with the tattoo against a flatbed scanner and creating a high-quality artistic print of the tattoo itself? Or does this separate the tattoo for the reality of its place on her body in such a way to invalidate the whole purpose of it? If this is a stupid idea, can you suggest others? Thanks!

Ideas for Bride/Groom Wedding Shower Gifts - Outdoors/Nature Inspired

My two good friends are getting hitched in September. Both are going to be present at the 'wedding shower'. I'm trying to come up with a good gift to give them that is outdoor/nature themed. My original idea was to get them something like a double person sleeping bag (way too expensive though.. $200+) and now I'm still trying to put something together. I will probably add in a giftcard with $20 on it for them to purchase midnight snacks, smores ingredients. As their wedding gift I will be getting them the National Park Annual Pass which is why I'm hoping their gift now can be used during their camping/hiking adventures. They have all the typical gear like tents, boots, etc. Any other clever ideas out there?
