What NYC or Brooklyn-specific gift can I get for twin girls age 4-5 who I 've never met but know they have everything, are probably reading beyond their age level, etc. My budget is around $20-30 total. I don't know anything about this age group or whether the parents are pro/against princess/barbie stuff and I'd like to avoid gender-stereotyping gifts anyway. Ideas? Thanks!

I'm looking for shops in either Miami Beach or New York City where I could find interesting handmade jewelry. (A slightly random combination of cities, I know--it's just that I'll be in both places on an upcoming trip.) I'm looking for jewelry that is well made but not ultra expensive--which, in my mind, would probably put the price range somewhere between $20 and $100. Any tips for shops in either location?

My friend is going to be in NYC soon to see "The Boy from Oz". Hugh Jackman does something of a meet-n-greet and she'd like to give him something nice and memorable to thank him for, y'know, doing his craft and whatnot. We've already pretty much ruled out a kiss on the cheek, but what would you suggest for her to do/give?
