i think the beer basket is a good idea for the males aswell, for the women you could do kind of the same as the males but with slippers, bubble bath bottle of wine and a box of chocolates :) if i had that after i have my 2nd i would love it nice hot bubble bath with a glass of wine and a box of chocolates :P mmmm, children maybe some little cheap craft toys like make their own plane by putting it together and painting it it depends on their age though, in the uk we have a shop called poundland where everything is a pound so when i havent got that much money i got there for prezzies lol xx

The beer idea is a little to pricey for me I would be down for brewing my own beer and re-purposing old beer bottles. But over all that would still be a pricey gift.

We brew a 5 galling pony keg for 40$. And you could give it glass gallon bottles? I dunno. Could you make your own jerky? It's pretty cheap, under 20$ and would serve at least 5 people.
