Why It’s A Great Gift Idea: Most people don’t have the luxury of their own car mechanic. Auto dealerships and many other repair houses typically offer gift cards that can be used for anything from routine oil changes to major car repairs.

What’s It Gonna Cost? That depends. A gift certificate for $100 will certainly cover the cost of a couple of routine oil changes — or help defray the cost of large repair expenses.

This is the most lame list of gifts I have ever read! The premise of the list is for those who "have everything." Car repair? Groceries? Charity donations in somebody's name? I imagine that giving groceries to somebody who "has everything" would be very weird. I assume that people who "have everything" don't want my grocery present, an offer to have their car fixed, or a charitable donation. If there is anybody who thinks that paying for car repair is a good idea for a gift then I would be happy to give you my number...

@MikeTB - you must not have everything because I think it's a pretty solid list. I'm very hard to shop for because I just don't think about getting things until it's too late. An example, I just got several gift packages from Creminelli, a very thoughtful gift from my brother yet very easy for him to give.

Star Registry? I wonder how one starts a business where people send me 25 dollars and I e-mail them back instructions on how to find their star (and a freshly created certificate of authenticity).

On the charity front, microfinance loan organizations like Kiva give the recipient the opportunity to be actively engaged in how the gift is used rather than just passively receiving a card announcing the donation. The gift recipient can choose who to lend the money to and can relend it many times over as the loans are repaid (or he or she can cash it out). It's a way to help entrepreneurs in the developing world get started in business.
