House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has a big birthday coming up on Friday, and after passing historic healthcare reform legislation this week, she's got plenty to celebrate.
But while her office is remaining mum on the Speaker's plans, the owner of Washington's toniest gift shop has some great ideas for birthday presents.
Keith Lipert counts royalty, ambassadors, CEOs, and members of Congress among the clients who come to his Georgetown shop for help deciding on the perfect, and most diplomatic gifts. He's too discreet to name them, of course, but he shared his suggestions for what Pelosi's colleagues might give her.
He advises to "consider asking a few people who admire her to inscribe a leather-bound Constitution, which only costs $20, thanking her for her service."
For personal friends and people who've "been in the trenches with [Pelosi]," Lipert said that, "women can give her a necklace, but I'd recommend to a man that he give her a brooch. And for a spring birthday, a cherry blossom symbolizes Washington and renewal."

No, no, no. I'd want to get something she'd actually use!
I wonder if I can get a discount from Amazon if I buy Rules For Radicals, Mein Kampf, and The Communist Manifesto together?
Bad memories that.....used the stuff for sygmoid prep and wifey refused to “assist”. Getting that red nozzle into the target zone was tougher than a carrier landing.
A pink slip.
I would be banned for life if I wrote what I think she should get for her b-day.
Can we set her up with a date with Jack Kevorkian?
Something made of pine.
A sceptre to replace that boring gavel.
Give her a t-shirt soaked in “Gravytrain” and see how she does in a pen full of pit bulls.
list of retirement homes?
Dead fish. It would be hard for them to complain since that is Rahm’s favorite thing to send folks on his ‘enemies’ list. Is there a fish market in Washington that we could call to deliver some to her office?
LOL..but I am kinda serious.
I think she could use a face-stretcher.
Thanks for the list of SF companies to boycott and the funny photo at the end.
A Steely Dan.
A bungee jump from the Golden Gate Bridge......ooppss! the the bungee broke!
A case of rough toilet paper so Pelosi can wipe the $hit from Obama’s a$$ off her lips.
A new broom?????
