Tokaj/Tokaji. I'm buying a gift for some friends who are Tokaj afficionados, and would love some recommendations for excellent Tokaj wines (ideally Hungarian or Czech rather than French/Italian Tokay or Tocai wines). They prefer the sweeter wines (5+ puttonyos) and it would be swell if I could find a 2001 vintage, as it's a 5th anniversary gift.

I have seen some pretty cool things to do with photos/video : the flip books, postage stamps and the cool new moo.com cards. I love all of those kind of things.
I am thinking of christmas gifts- any one have any links or ideas I may not have seen yet? And/or places where you liked the results or may NOT have liked the results?

Suggestions for a gift for coworkers - Yesterday I broke my toe playing volleyball at a company retreat. I appreciated the support from two employees (coworker who cleaned it up, and taped it up, and one who took me to the ER, waited for me, gave me a good dinner, and offered to drive me home because I have a standard). I would like to give each of them a gift as a thank you. Suggestions?

I've been invited to the wedding of the daughter of some casual friends. I live in the US now but most of the weddings I've been to were when I lived in the UK. I'm not sure what an appropriate amount is for a money wedding gift. I've heard it should be equal to or greater than the amount per head the family is paying for the reception. How accurate is this? It seems to me if that's the case, the wedding is less of a celebration than a business transaction. Anyway, I'm afraid of giving an inappropriate amount. Advice please!

I'm looking for a gift in San Francisco. A small onyx figurine of a black panther that could pass for R.A. Salvatore's Guenhwyvar. I've found a few speciments online
. But I'd rather find something local or in the surrounding Bay Area that I can see up close before I buy. Can anyone recommend a place that might carry this sort of thing?

A number of years back I gave a pair of Swatches like these
as a wedding gift. It's hard to tell from the photo, but one watch has the hours, the other has the minutes. They belong together so much that they barely function separately. I have a bunch of wedding-related gifts to give in the near future. Can anyone recommend paired things in a similar vein?

I'm looking to send a bottle of bubbly to some newlyweds in Hawaii (Maui), however they're not staying at a fancy resort with this kind of amenity, so I figured I'd send something directly to their cottage.
I'm looking for a site like wine.com (they don't ship to Hawaii) where you can buy a bottle online and ship it directly, or a winery who does the same thing.

I have no clue what to get my boyfriend of four years, who is turning 26 in two weeks. I’d like to give him something fun, like an experience, but all of the “experience” websites cost way more than I’m looking to spend. Here’s the details: we live in the DC/Baltimore area and he’s into piano, karate, and listening to jazz/funk music. Looking to spend less than $100, as I already bought a ticket to fly home with him for his birthday so he can see his family. Also, it has to be a “family-safe” gift since he will probably open it in front of them.
