  • Dollar stores have plain wood picture frames. Then go to a craft store and get some cheap craft supplies (glue, glitter, markers, foam stickers) and let the kids decorate the frames. Get the kids dressed up decent, find a nice place outside to take a few pictures (even if it's just up against a green bush decorated with lights) or by your Christmas tree. Take a few pics if you have a digital camera, and you can make prints for pretty cheap at the machines in the stores. It's a great gift.

  • Kids crafts, etc. Perhaps a personal note/letter telling that person how much they have meant to you. Sometimes buying a gift just to give a gift is ridiculous, especially when that person has everything they need!
