SPENDING IS CLEARLY the answer. Open your wallet, grab your checkbook, whip out the credit card(s), and start buying.
1. Skydive with Bourdain
This is a feel-good gift; 100% of the proceeds go to the Food Bank for New York City. And what do you get? A one-hour skydiving crash course with Anthony Bourdain, a skydiving trip on a date of your choice, transportation to and from the jump site, and dinner with Bourdain afterward.
Perhaps the only disappointment here is that dinner is just burgers and beers. One would hope for sheep brains or something.
