    He gave me one really good idea (elk skin motorcycle gloves) and then, a few days after telling me...he was at a motorcycle swap meet and found a pair he liked, so he bought them. Can't really blame him, but I was a little peeved!

    Vacation is out since I'm a bit broke and we're already planning to do SF on NYE and go to the snow in January/February.

    I came up with getting him two nice whiskey glasses and a really nice bottle of whiskey to go with them, but I don't think that's enough.

    He's really big into his motorcycles but he's more of a vintage 60s bad hipster biker movie kind of motorcycle guy and not, say, a Harley Hog dude. I thought of maybe buying some vintage pictures on Ebay of people on cool old motorcycles and framing them for his house, but framing is a bit pricey, too.

    He's too tall to buy clothes for without potentially buying something with too short of sleeves. He said he wants a knife, but he would want to go buy and pick it out on his own since he claims "he's picky."

    The only other thing he mentioned was a tool box...but he has like 3 already and I don't know the first thing about them.

    He likes working on his motorcycles (he's doing a big conversion on one now) and he loves food. The only other idea I had was getting real Carolina BBQ ribs mailed to us...but I think that's kinda lame.
    Can't go wrong with a nice steak dinner and blowjob.

    Hannah, I need help figuring out what to give a friend for her birthday. She is a PhD student and lives here in Seattle with me. She is not super materialistic, but the stuff she does keep around is all really nice, so I'm having a really hard time coming up with any ideas in my price range ($30-$60).

    She is super well-traveled (she used to live in Morocco) and successfully ran her own consulting company for several years before returning to grad school. She still spends a fair amount of time flying to places like Lithuania and Argentina to give keynotes at conferences. She likes political activism and is very, very liberal. She rides her bike around everywhere (but is not hardcore about it), enjoys the symphony, good pinot noir, dark chocolate, and reading the New Yorker. She also goes to yoga classes, but I'm not sure if she actually enjoys that. She also sometimes makes jewelry. I'd say her style is sort of J. Crew meets global bazaar -- a bit of New England prep with a lot of Indian/Moroccan/Peruvian patterns and colors. She lives in a studio, so she doesn't have a lot of room for extra stuff hanging around.

    ...Ideas?

    Our neighbor just brought us back some amazing chocolate from Chicago, where this company, Vosges, is based. It is some of the most exotic dark chocolate I have ever had, so amazing. Use paprika, chilies, ginger and wasabi, and other unusual flavors.

    The box she got us, $40:

    A nice travel jewelry roll in a pattern suited to her global tastes (and maybe a matching toiletry bag to go with it if the budget allows). It's a) stylistically relevant b) travel-friendly c) jewelry-friendly and d) organizational enough to suit small-space living. Tuck a picture of Wendy Davis and a Vosges bar in the zipper pocket, and I think you'll have all your bases covered.

    Those chocolates are ridiculously good, and I have always loved the bacon chocolate ones. We sell them at Whole Foods, so obviously they are pricey, but whatever, I just sample them out so I can eat the majority.

    I need to find a birthday present for a 4-year-old girl. She's kind of a diva. I already crossed off Easy Bake Oven and a Vanity Set from the list of possible gifts. I do have to take into consideration that she has a 2-year-old brother, so toys with small parts that can be a choking hazard is somewhat out of the question.
    The only gift that keeps popping into my head is a megaphone with built-in bull horn, but I think my brother might hate me for that. I don't really know her that well, since she's my bro's girlfriend's daughter. I see her maybe once a month. I'm looking to spend no more than $70.

    Books. Diva-like kids books such as Pinkalicious or Fancy Nancy.

    Bought those before thinking it’d be cool, but the novelty wears off quickly and only used it once before permanently discarding. I mean, it’s an extra thing taking up your drink space. And another item to have to put away afterward. If I remember correctly there may have been a peculiar smell to them as well. I guess if you are a one drink only type spunky themed party host or something.

    Scanned a self designed sketch and purchased this tank top from customink.com that went over well. She does an open armed, bird wing move while running sometimes hence the design. Not super original, but the tshirt gift can be pleasing to the recipient.

    The pilgrimage is not perfected save by copulation with the camel.

    We threw a Titanic sinking centenary party last year, we spent weeks filling up that ice cube maker and emptying it again to make enough for the party.

    Robin, if your 4 year old friend likes to color, I recommend this coloring book. It's super cool and you could include an awesome set of crayons or markers.

    Inkowash UV-reactive fabric printing kit and a pack of white t-shirts in assorted sizes. They'll be able to collect items around the house and use them to make silhouette print t-shirts for the family, and you'll be the unusual art project hero.

    Tiny bottles of alcohol. You know, those airport shots? They're kiddie-sized and you'll be a huge hit with your brother's girlfriend.

    Thank you to those that actually gave me serious responses! I ended up buying this Disney Princess dress-up thingy whatever. The gifts mentioned in here will definitely be taken into consideration around Christmas time. I'm really liking that tshirt thing, Hannah.
