  • If it was a woman maybe some spa stuff from like bath and body...or a gift basket. Hersheys has some nice yummy gifts for like 25 bucks. or wine country gift baskets. I'm addicted to online shopping. haha its bad. Maybe a gift certificate for dinner.

  • Make gift baskets! some great cheap and easy ones: Grill night, Itailian, Soup & Salad You can get most of the hardware from the dollar store and the other stuff from a grocery store. I tend to spend about 20 bucks a basket and they always turn out so great : ) Look online for ideas but do it your self it will save tons of money

  • At my baby shower we made little baskets as game prizes, but it would probably make a good thank you gift too. We put Bath & Bodyworks soap and lotion and some candles.

  • Depending on what the person likes....what about a nice coffee mug with different types of coffees? Bath and Body works has really nice gift sets already made, about $10-20 each.
