Do you have a wedding, anniversary, milestone birthday, bar or bat mitzvah, retirement, divorce, graduation, baby shower, or literally any other occasion at all coming up? Are you at loss for what to tell your friends and family to get you for your special time?

Please direct your attention to Nate D. Sanders Auctions, where 95 items of personal Prince memorabilia belonging to his ex-wife Mayte Garcia (who makes the case for never giving your ex his stuff back) and ex-manager Owen Husney are on auction until March 17. Why ask for, like, a gift card to Red Lobster (okay, that’s still a suitable gift) when your birthday wish list or wedding registry could include jewelry and clothes once worn by Prince? Here, some suggestions for what to demand your loved ones purchase you:

Or this. Because what says “congratulations on that baby coming out of you” best: A mega-pack of Pampers, or the moon-and-star ear-wrap Prince wore to the 1998 NBA All-Star Game he attended with Spike Lee?
