How can I give Final Cut Pro as a gift?

I want to give someone a copy of Final Cut Pro X as a gift. But since there's no physical package anymore, I can't figure out how to do it, and I'm feeling pretty dumb. I thought maybe an iTunes Gift Certificate, but Apple.com says "iTunes Gift Cards and Certificates can be redeemed for songs, albums, audiobooks, videos, and games on the iTunes Store. They cannot be used to buy Apple products." Help? [more inside]

A gift for the wild blue yonder

I'd like to buy a gift for a good friend who is a flight instructor (small planes, one-on-one with students); he hasn't been doing it all that long, and doesn't have a huge amount of personal equipment. Anything nice/fancy that is also incredibly useful to have that his employer wouldn't provide? Also, any iPad/iPhone accessories for pilots? Say anything up to $500 (or even a bit more) or so - though unless I was completely assured he'd love the gift, I'd prefer cheaper. Thanks!

I'm no good at the girl stuff.

Where can I find some great small gifts for my much-loved friends? My 4 pals and I get together every month for drinks, dinner, and friend-talk. Christmas is always a special gathering, with small gifts all around. I never feel like I hit the gifts right...they like jewelry, clothes, accessories etc., and they're all very crafty. I just don't have the eye for that stuff, but I love 'em dearly. $15-ish budget a piece. [more inside]
