gift certificates for incoming Harvard freshmen
I'd like to buy gift certificates to a local coffee shop/pizzeria/ice cream place for two girls who will be freshmen at Harvard. They are both vegetarians, if that's a factor, so not burger places...though I'm open to other cheap eats--places where they could bring a friend for a snack or a cup of coffee.
I am in New York (where they live) and would need to order by phone or e-mail to have the certificates sent to them at home. I tried JP Licks, but they can't do it by mail. Does anyone have other suggestions? I'd like to spend about $25 or $30 each. Thanks!
I'll also recommend Crema, and Veggie Planet is a good suggestion (I don't LOVE their food, but it's funky and is part of a pretty good independent live music venue -- the epicenter of vegetarian culture in Harvard Sq)
You should also look into Burdick's -- they have a store (one of their 3) in NYC ~ 20th street, I think. My favorite hot chocolate in the world, and a really nice place to go to relax and have some dessert.
I also like Berryline (a pretty good Pinkberry clone).

My wife and I have gotten gift certificates from Pinocchio's Pizza for a cousin who went to Harvard several years ago. http://www.pinocchiospizza.net/
If you have difficulty getting them over the phone you can also try Upper Crust Pizza, a local chain with an outlet in Harvard Square. You can definitely order gift certificates on line: http://www.theuppercrustpizzeria.com/...
