What to do when you have left someone shortly before an anniversary and birthday....?

Two weeks after my girlfriend treated me to the most thoughtfully-indulgent birthday weekend imaginable, I broke up with her. Just a week has passed since we went our separate ways, but that means two weeks until what would have been our three-year anniversary and three weeks until her birthday, upon which I would otherwise be reciprocating her generosity. Is there anything I can do or say or give to mark the occasion appropriately? [more inside]

What's a gifter to do with unwanted gifts?

My wife's battled depression for a while, and though she rallied and had a decent few months, she plunged back into the depths of it for the few weeks around her recent birthday (which seems to happen every year, but this year was the worst yet). She had us cancel any birthday plans, cake, etc -- didn't even want anybody to say "happy birthday". After asking a few times and receiving this same answer, I went along with it; it was her birthday, after all. Her mood has lifted since then, but she still doesn't want her presents -- says to return everything, and shuts down when I bring up the subject. Fine, I can return them, except for one, a custom order meant as a present from our four-year-old (call her "Olivia"): a set of coasters printed with Olivia's scanned artwork. What do I do with them?

What to do for a Sixteenth Birthday?

I'm looking for gift ideas for my daughter's sixteenth birthday. She's not into the traditional Sweet 16 routine but still, I feel like the gift has to be more significant than a regular old B-day gift. About her: musical hippie type (has good guitar and equipment already), California girl relocated to Moscow Idaho two years ago; mellow, sweet girl. ANY ideas greatly appreciated.

birthday gift dilemma

My wife's birthday is May 18th (not this Sunday but next). I have gotten her a Mac laptop. I should receive it today via Fedex. Should I give it to her this weekend or wait until the official day? We don't have a party planned, ie it'll be just us. I could give it to her early and give her smaller gifts (e.g. a music CD) on the 18th. or I could wait ....

Birthday in NY

I have a birthday coming up and I want to get friends together to do something besides a house party or going to the bars. I've done karaoke for my birthday in the past. Any suggestions? I want to keep it small this year, probably around 10 people and ideally it would be something where one could drink or at least go to the bars later in the evening. Also, looking for something on the night of March 28 or 29.
