For Baby Showers
After a few months with baby, the new couple will appreciate an all-paid-for night on the town. You can go as far as you want, from a simple dinner reservation to tickets to a show and a hotel room. Offer to be the babysitter or enlist the help of a relative so the parents know their child is in safe hands.
For your Boss
Taking notes during a meeting can be a hassle. This $130 LCD eWriter from Sharper Image is Bluetooth capable, saves paper, can be used as a presentation tool, and syncs with Mac, PC, smartphones, and iPads. Convenience is key for busy bosses.
For Housewarming Parties
Luxury items like these stone coasters add an element of class to any household. When looking for expensive decor, consider the homeowners’ tastes and look for either upscale or vintage decorations like a wine rack or a luxurious throw blanket.

It’s going to happen sooner or later. She’s going to get her driver’s license. While a car may be the best present in the world for a 16-year-old, make sure not to give her something nice. We all know how teens treat their first cars, after all! Hand-me-down cars are best for teen drivers.

To make it something really special, include a gift certificate for a massage or mani/pedi.
