3. An awesome gift AND a portion donated too.
It’s very generous when people ask for a donation in lieu of gift but sometimes it’s nice to be able to give a gift. There’s a simple way to do both. You set up a collection for the gift in minutes on GroupTogether.com. Then, they do the rest – email friends to chip in online and add a message + photo to the card. They send reminders to the “forgetful” so you don’t have to. When it’s done, they send you the money for the gift and send the donations to the charity in the honoree’s name. Easy and nice.

Got an ipad, there’s a better one now.
Got a computer, a laptop would be great too. The Macbook Air has as much speed and power as you need unless you’re editing lots of video footage. And it’s super light.
Love books.. the new paper white kindles are much improved with better interface.
Apple watch? Hmm.. careful.. they aren’t waterproof.
