What kind of pictures (photos) render best on canvas. I am trying to get a large sized photo-on-canvas frame from a night-time city shot. The picture I have in mind are night time photos of city skylines (manhattan from brooklyn) Would this look good when converted to canvas ? What other suggestions does the hive mind have when it comes to shooting digital images for framing on canvas

Good gift/Bad gift?
So I thought that this year I'd get this same item for my son, my daughter, my adult niece and a couple of neighbourhood strays too.
I know for a fact that that they'll be tickled that it's not another flashlight or safety kit...
The item? A handheld battery operated sewing machine. (I can't seem to link it to the product)
These recipients are not handy people but I think that we can, all of us, use this from time to time to fix stuff around the house?
1: in theory, do you think it's a good idea?
2:do these things actually work? It almost has to work on it's own. Idiot-proof. Very simple for us to use - did I mention that we are not handy people?
(though not a weighty topic, I searched unsuccessfully to see if these machines had ever been discussed here)

My boss lives several states away (we both telecommute). His wife will have their second child in a few weeks. I'd like to gift them with some useful goodies that can help them get through those tough early days, but are relatively easy to mail and/or order. Any suggestions?

If my sister and I didn't live halfway across the country from each other, I would take her out for sushi for her birthday. Since I can't be there, and she can't be here, I'd like to pay for her and her boyfriend to go out for dinner instead. What's a decent sushi place I could send them to in or near Fort Collins, CO, and how do I pay for it? [more inside]

My roomate will be running in her first marathon this weekend and she is getting the jitters. To help her out (emotionally) I want to put together a " care package" for her flight (cross country) and/or the time before/after the race. What can a put together (low cost- Im a grad student) that will give her heart the urge to run, her mind some confidence and will just let her know I'm thinking of her?

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?

Panic! It's my girlfriend's 'n'th birthday in 2 weeks and I'm trying to get her a cool bag in which to put the gifts I have bought her and to double as a gift itself. I've searched elsewares and popgadget but can't find any other good sites for indie designed bags. In the words of Princess Leia 'you're my only hope'..[nb preferably a UK online store]. Thanks in advance.

I'm getting married next Saturday. I don't know what to get the two women who are standing up with me. We are 30 something women (technically cheating for me). Both quite artsy. I can't (or don't feel competent) buying jewelry or art or books for them (though that's what they like). Any ideas? [more inside]

About 15 years ago, I gave the GF a pair of diamond earrings. Nothing grand – we were both young and poor – about 5/8 carat. When I found out she was cheating, I demanded them back (among other things). Flash forward 15 years – I am now married (to someone else obviously), and just came across the long forgotten earrings in an old box. [more inside]

What book should I get as an award for two outstanding 8th grade grads? I'm their faculty advisor. They've each won an end-of-year award, and I'm tasked with finding them a suitable book to mark the occasion. I want to find something more than a dry dictionary or reference book, and I'd love to inspire them to continue their great work without being too sappy or preachy. My range is $15 - $20. Any suggestions?
