This art book of the work of Hilma af Klimt would be really nice to have.
Neil and I have been looking around for better dinnerware for ages. I finally started browsing vintage dinnerware, and I really like some of the designs from the now-defunct Franciscan ceramics manufacturer. I'm particularly fond of the Nut Tree pattern. I think Neil prefers the Autumn pattern. Both are lovely.
If none of these ideas inspire you, I would love a gift certificate. Places I love to shop include Amazon, REI, the Apple Store, Eddie Bauer, Macy's, L.L. Bean, Home Depot, Sur La Table, and Crate and Barrel. I would be delighted with a gift certificate to any of those places.
