Ask Slashdot: Good, yet uncommon, gift for a friend?

Anonymous Coward writes | about a year and a half ago

An anonymous reader writes "I, having the title of alpha geek in my classroom (15 yo), was asked by a female friend of mine whether "buying" a star for someone was legit. (It is for a friend of her whom I know & I am also friends with her.) I obviously replied no, no official body would recognize it and it is (imho) a waste of money.

So, Slashdot, ideas for a (birthday) gift for someone? I guess it's not a requirement, but I think it should be better if it was not one of the common gifts (yet cheap, we're young!). (On the other hand, I know how to program, so don't exclude gifts which require a (computer) program or something [weird scenario, I know])."
