@mypinkshoes:  What about a couple of his favorite chocolates/chocolate bars? Maybe some stocking stuffer type things like liquor minis? A DVD of a movie he loved as a kid? A home made ‘love coupon’ for a massage or you’ll cook dinner or do something racier ;)?

Could you do a framed photo from your wedding, or a photo collage?  Maybe a shadow box of pics and stuff from your vacation?  Some of my absolute favorite gifts were collages and shadowboxes from one of my friends who was a college student (aka POOR!).

Do you have any crafty abilities?  My mom crocheted me a hat & scarf set one year that I love.  One of our wedding presents was a framed drawing of our three dogs and it was by far the coolest, most personalized gift we received.

You could also do a date-night-in-a-box.  Get his fave beer, a DVD, some popcorn or a snack, and maybe some massage oil or other ‘risque’ item and box it up for him.

@mypinkshoes:  You can just do something sentimental.  Regardless of the price tag of your gift, a heartfelt, meaningful gift will stack up nicely!

You married this year, correct?  How about an “Our first Christmas as Mr. and Mrs.” or some other type of personalized gift…

@mypinkshoes:  Yes I do drive a WRX and I LOVE IT!  It makes me feel like a bad ass.  It is actually pretty bad ass. 

Anyway… one year I got my ILs a peice of wall art.  It was a family of three snowmen and I personalized with their names for each snowman – MIL, Father-In-Law, and husband.  It was really adorable!  It was a few years ago so I can’t remember where I got but you can try currentcatalog.com, Hallmark, Bronners, Oriental Trading, etc.

Since penguins mate for life it would be really cute to incorporate that somehow.  You could also do personalized stockings.  A door mat with your new last name.  Just do a google search, I’m sure you’ll see a lot of good ideas.
