You can't go wrong with a potted plant or a flowering plant. I like to go with something that's potted because then it won't die unless they don't take care of it.

My gift of choice this year is This American Life. They have some greatest-hits collections available on CD that I'm sure will be great. It's a good parent-type gift, I think.

A girlfriend once brought my mother a cutting board. She still talks about it to this day.

As a parent, Windchimes, but only if they like the outdoors, and have a place to hang it. Soy Candles. Cool Coffee – like Dunkin Donuts, White Castle, something you know they wouldn’t buy for themselvs, but would be 10 bucks or under. maybe a cool potted plant, but again, think about the lighting and where it might go. Don’t want them to be nice, you want them to have something to enjoy. I’d be happy with any of these things from my sons gf’s
