A Present for Melisse is a side quest in Dragon Age: Origins - Awakening. The Blight Orphans dislike a woman named Melisse and have suggested that a scarecrow with a knife in front of her house might scare her.
The kitchen knife is in the kitchen of the Crown and Lion Inn on a table. Next you need to find a scarecrow. After exiting the inn, turn right and head towards the entrance of the city. You will find a scarecrow in one of the fields. After getting the scarecrow, head back into the city. Just past Constable Aidan, turn right and the house right in front of you is Melisse's. Place the scarecrow on the spot marked "Soft Ground".
There is no reward for this quest, but completing it opens up more quests on the Blight Orfans Notis Bord.
