So my wife's birthday is coming up, and I need to get a gift. She's also due to have our first child in two weeks. Is there something that would be a nice gift that she would enjoy specifically while very pregnant and/or post-pregnant? Let's keep it around 100 bucks. [more inside]

Finding gift certificates for places far away from me

My parents have retired, and are mere days away from closing the sale of the house I grew up in and traveling the country in an RV. Birthdays and holidays become somewhat of a gift-giving challenge. Their space is limited, so getting them things seems unwise. I'd like to get them gift certificates to restaurants or activities that I've never been to and that I can't really visit personally. Are there any tricks to find fun things that I can get gift certificates for? [more inside]

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]

Engraved gift for 11-year-old girl?

I am looking for a small I'm-going-away/she's-starting-middle-school gift for my 11-year-old sister. I'm hoping to spend <$30, and I prefer something that can be engraved, but preferably not jewelry. Anything that means "I'll miss you" or "congratulations on starting to grow up"? Any keepsake you would have loved at 11?

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?
