  • Walmart/Target/K-Mart all have cologne/aftershave gift sets for $5.00. You could also get a car care kit. Maybe a small set of tools or one of those "multi-tools". Maybe a theme t-shirt ... these are the ones that have the "classic" look to them ... Walmart and Target have them.

    Kids ... kids are easy. Hit the dollar section of stores or even go to your local dollar store. You can get them 5 small gifts and make little gift bags. =)

  • aftershave, nail clippers, a new coffee mug, a box of favorite candy, flashlight, a new key chain, wallet, gloves, a new scarf, if single then maybe things like pot holders, kitchen towels, cologne, a 5.00 gift card, cookie in the jar where you put in the dry items then they add the wet ones, bake them their favorite goodie,

  • Most of the things listed above are going to be poor quality and look really cheap if you are buying them in the five dollar range. I'd stick with a gift card to a local coffee shop, or something edible - a gormet chocolate bar or something. Beer is often a good chocie too - maybe a six pack from a local brewer (will go a bit over five though).

  • Home Depot has a display full of miniture tools that work on keychains. My brother loved the tiny wrench one year. And I got one for hubs and pops and a tiny tape measure which were stocking stuffers. They run between 1.99 to 5.00 each.

  • That is what we are doing with my mom and stepdad this year. We are doing $5.00 gifts with them. If i cannot find a $5.00 gift each, i will get a $10. gift for mom & stepdad together for the house.
