I have never gotten anyone a book as a gift. Get them gift cards and call it a day.

@peachacid:  For you mother I know those fake fur scarves that are almost like a hood (can’t think of the name) seem to be in this year as far as I can tell. So maybe that or a nice scarf, shawl, bracelet… 

For your dad you could always get him a book/magazine on vintage cars, calendar with them, perhaps a model or framed picture of a vintage car

Sister’s boyfriend – gift card to sporting or hardware store – might need to find out what he is into

Really for all of the above you could also just go with alcohol – it seems to be a great gift! A good bottle of wine or a new drink may be more well received if you have no idea what to buy

For your husband you should get some of the fake coal and include it with whatever you get him!

Does his mom have one of those purse hangers, the ones that go over the table and you hang your purse on it. If she’s a posh dresser than she probably carries nice purses which, I personally, don’t like placing on the floor. I got one a few years ago and I love it and use it all the time. You can get some really nice designer name ones. 

The boyfriend, I’d stick with a gift card, maybe to Amazon or something. 

The dad, maybe a model car of a classic car.

Activities can be a fun alternative.


Zip lining, museum passes, event tickets, horseback riding…. that kind of thing.


Or food. I love food.

How about some books and a bottle of wine and then tell them it’s what YOU love so you wanted to share it with them because that’s what people do when they love someone, they want them to have something AWESOME. And wine and books are AWESOME.

@peachacid:  Gift cards. I know, they’re lame, but it’s basically free money. Anyone who complains about getting one is crazy.

@peachacid:  How about a spa gift certificate or a mani/pedi gift certificate for his mom?  Who doesn’t love some kind of spa service, especially if she can choose exactly what she wants?  

For his dad….how about a sweater or scarf?

Sister + brother- I’d do a “couples” gift like tickets to a play or event they would like to attend, or a gift card to a nice restaurant.

@peachacid:  Yeah. See, we don’t know them or what they like either aside from that they are apparently heathens who don’t read, which is why I (and others) suggested gift cards.
