What about one of the nice liquor gift boxes, like the Baileys that comes with two glass fancy coffee mugs or the good bottle of Patron?

@mrstea83:  The coffee machine was a good idea so maybe think other kitchen appliances? A food processor or a juicer?

Honestly FI does a gift exhange at work and everyone really tries their hardest to steal the alcohol gifts.

So here’s my overly detailed idea:

Might be cute to give salted caramel vodka + hot chocolate + marshmellows
THEN
– For a couple, I’d throw in a Yule Log DVD (both relaxing and hilarious!), a gift card for Red Box, some popcorrn, a blanket, and some candles and call it a DATE NIGHT!
– For a familiy, I’d include a really good board game, crazy straws, maybe some Christmas crackers (I mean the ones that you open and treats come out), and maybe some books, depending on how old the kids are.
– For a family with pets, include pet toys and treats (maybe a cute Christmas collar)
– For a single person, I’d just amp up the alcohol mixers (Baileys? Coffee? Some fun winter drinks), give some cookies and treats, and include a party game like Cards Against Humainty.

[ETA] NO ONE DRINKS so then skip the flavored alcohol and give non-alcoholic Bailey’s and flavored syrup (like for Italian sodas) as mixers with the hot cocoa/coffee/etc – I know they have salted caramel flavor, probably have others, too (yum)
Bonus! It’s cheaper than vodka!

Or a coffee grinder (to grind their own beans), a gift certificate to get a massage (not a spa, since that might be more girly, but a massage is gender neutral).

@mrstea83:  Oh, okay, then what about something like a pasta machine and an Italian cookbook?  Just something nice that people would like but not necessarily buy for themselves.  If they’re local, what about a gift certificate for a nice local restaurant?

@mrstea83:  Date nights are my favorite gifts to give couples (kids or not!)
Movie ticket gift cards (with a popcorn ticket!), board game night kits, tickets to a museum and a giftcard to dinner – it can be such a pain to plan the darn thing, let alone schedule it. I like to take out most of the work. 🙂

@mrstea83:  You can get an outdoor fire pit & marshmallows (walmart has some under $50, like this ).

Also, you could consider travel stuff (wheeled suitcase, or accessories like organizer bags, jewelry holders, etc). Presents that make people think of their upcoming vacations are always a bonus!
