What to get for a depressed friend? One of my friends has had a very bad week. She found out she needs surgery and lost a ton of work because her flash drive was stolen. I want to get her a gift to show her everything will be alright and I am here for her. Some info, she is college age and very smart. She has a boyfriend though so nothing too romantic. Prefer something available locally due to time constraints, but I'm not against shopping online.

Which Harry Potter Lego Hogwarts Express Set is better?

My girlfriend is a big Lego fan and a big Harry Potter fan. (Sadly, yet thankfully, she's not yet a big Ask.metafilter fan.) I'm going to get her the Hogwarts Express Lego set for her birthday. The question: 4708 or 4758? Essentially, Lego put out two versions of this for two different movies. They both roughly go for the same amount on eBay, and have roughly the same number of pieces. Any insight into which one would be more fun? (She enjoys the build taking awhile and having lots of little things that do stuff afterwards. I think less important is which characters come with the set.) [more inside]

Everyone wants to give the money to the other person - what is fair?

14 years ago I was given a baby grand piano for Christmas, where it lived at my mother's house until now. She recently remodeled and sold it (with my full agreement) since I have no room for it and interstate moving would cost as much as a new piano. She wants to give me the proceeds since it was my present, but I think we should at least split it since it was a really expensive gift and it has remained at her house. What do you think?

Snowboarding Gift Ideas

I'm looking for gift ideas for a family member who is into snowboarding. He already has all the basics but I do know he needs a new pair of goggles (which shouldn't be hard to find). I'm also interested in any cool accessories that you could recommend beyond the basic stuff your average snowboarder would have. The price range I'm looking for is around $50. Thanks in advance!
