These can be had for $3.69 USD excluding tax from Target Stores. I'll probably send a few around in discreet plain manila wraps to all my friends and relations who are still going through their pain re post-election results 2016. I might even donate a case to the MU Chancellors Office with a Doctor Spock go to reference book in the event some of the students and faculty are still acting out or throwing tantrums.

Cheaper than cops and tear gas..........

I always tend to do really personal gifts, I really want to find something that suits the other person so it's hard to give ideas. Totally depends on the reciever. I also love making homemade gifts idk if that's something people want or not though haha, I just feel it's even more personal and fun.

You can't solve that black hole. Anyway if I decide to give someone something I'll make sure it's big and useful, not plastic, something like bake your own food or surprises like those, no jewelry that's monetarized.

I'm a fan of hampers and gift boxes because then you can put in a few things and there's much less pressure to get one perfect gift and what if they already have it/don't like it etc.

Some recent man hamper examples include a coffee one (some very unusual, some local coffee, a travel filter coffee maker, some of those chocolate spoons that you stir and they melt into the coffee etc). He actually used it, there were treats you'd normally never buy yourself and it wasn't more stuff he didn't want cluttering up the house.

This can easily be done with anything from fishing (books, flies, line, measuring tape! etc...) to even someone who only ever watches TV (subscriptions to the tv times, one of those armchair remote holders, etc).

For my hubby I'm doing of this hammock http://jonsguide.org/best-top-portable-hammock-reviews/ for our summer patio

I usually buy people video games, since nearly everyone I know is a gamer.

I buy my niblings baby clothes, since they are babies. And I buy relatives I don't know much about or like food, usually chocolate unless they don't happen to like it, because I don't really feel like getting them something more personal. Not that I would complain about receiving chocolate myself. My husband always buys me a 2lb tin of Godiva's chocolate-covered pretzels for Christmas, among other gifts. Lasts me a few months, and I adore them.

Based off this, I would say you clearly do not suck with Christmas presents. I'd be pumped if I got either of these.

If you're old enough and enjoy a drink, alcohol is always a welcomed gift.

I always hated resorting to gift cards.

Thinkgeek usually has some fun gifts for all kinds of people.
