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]

What's a good Lego-related gift for a 5 year-old?

What Lego-related gift should I get in the USA for a bright 5 year old Australian with Asperger spectrum issues? He likes Lego and has a particular interest in Legoland in San Diego. I want something that costs no more than $20 and I'd rather leave presents of actual Lego to his parents.

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]
