    I have a friend who is turning 30 in June. He got married in April to a Japanese girl. They live in Tokyo. He is as white as a ghost, but likes Asian women, so he moved there about 7 years ago. I wasn't able to attend the wedding, so the "birthday" gift needs to be half-wedding, half-birthday present.

    He's coming back to the USA on a business trip next week. Problem is, I can't get him anything large because he won't have space in his suitcases to take it home. Gift cards are a no go. Cash seems really lazy and impersonal.

    Any ideas?

    Well, he's a computer science major, so he likes messing around with all kinds of electronic stuff.

    I'm afraid to buy him anything electronic though because he might already have it.

    He doesn't have a car. Japan has a good train system so he rides that.
