Perhaps this Santa is too Secret

Secret Santa gift for a girl that I don't know too well. I can't provide too much information, but she's 21, college educated, has a fairly bubbly personality, and likes the Ravens. What are some good generic gifts for someone in this age range with this extremely vague set of descriptors? I'm trying to avoid gift cards. Price range is $20 to $30 dollars. [more inside]

Sketchy on the Details

My sibling is getting really into sketching/pencil drawing. My other sibling and I want to get her some good art supplies for Christmas; a nice leather refillable sketchbook, a pencil set, and some paper. The problem is that neither of us knows the first thing about art and drawing paper. What's the best kind of paper to use for pencil/charcoal drawings, and where is a good place to order some online?

Size XL, he likes them baggy

I recently travelled 8,000 miles home to visit family and see my sick grandad for possibly the last time. I brought $150s worth of gifts across for them from Montreal, Toronto, Paris, Lorraine, and Iceland. Now my mum is demanding an extra, more expensive gift that I post to my brother because his car broke down after he'd given me a lift to the airport. Reasonable or unreasonable? How would you navigate this? [more inside]

I'm not trying to buy your affection but here's some cash

I am visiting my boyfriend's family for Christmas. His parents and two of his younger brothers (still in school) will be there, and I've met each of them very briefly. They celebrate Christmas with gift exchanges, but I was thinking about giving them cash, partly because I feel I don't know them well, partly because I don't want to travel with lots of boxes, and partly because cash is a perfectly acceptable gift in my culture (for New Year's Day). I've asked my boyfriend and he seemed lukewarm, but not entirely against it. Is this an absolutely horrible idea? If it's not, what is a good amount that says I'm not stingy, but also also not trying to bribe them?

making pith helmet cat ears - advice?

Please help me: a) procure 2-5 pith helmets (natural straw type), inexpensively; b) procure material to make matching cat ears; c) add cat ears to pith helmets, in "airplane ears" or "listening behind" position, because cat safari is serious business. Found $15/helmet source for (a), but wonder if there's a less expensive way. For (b), I have no real clue - what should I even buy? Very thin chair caning supplies? Tiny willow branches from a nearby tree? Any ideas? [more inside]

Shine on, Crazy

Are birthday themes the same as anniversary themes (e.g., gold, silver, paper, etc.)? If not, is there a separate set of themes for birthdays? My gf's 60th is coming up, and while i'm sure she'd be happy to have something with diamonds no matter what, I'd prefer not to limit myself that way if 60 is not "the diamond birthday", and especially not if 60 is some other kind of birthday. OTOH, if there is a theme for 60, it may help me with my long-standing case of CMGS (Clueless Male Gifting Syndrome).

Gift ideas for hobby farmers & child

I need some gift ideas, please. Giftee #1 is a very active three-year-old boy who lives out in the country and loves mud puddles. Giftees #2 & #3 are his parents, who are very into their hobby farm complete with chickens, ducks, sheep, horses, mules, etc. Price range for the parents is $100-$300; for the kid, I'm just looking for fun things that a little boy might like to do in the summertime--I'm willing to spend up to $100 but it doesn't necessarily need to be expensive, just fun. Also please note that it doesn't get very hot where we live. Thanks!

NYC/Brooklyn-specific gifts for twin 4yr old girls

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!

No seriously, a large print Arduino would be great...

Back in the days of yore, my (almost) 77 year old father was quite the geek and maker, but never a programmer. Fast- forward to today and he can no longer work on big building projects and spends much of his time with his iPad and TV. We've been discussing what kinds of "doing" projects he'd like to work on, but the obvious contender of an Arduino is maybe a little difficult as I'm not in Australia to help him out with the programming side of things. What great projects have you known senior geeks to get into? [more inside]
