What to get a cheap UNCLE for Xmas?

My uncle has become very cheap with presents since marrying his newDW a few yrs ago, and we are tired of buying pricey gifts for them.. So I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on what we can get him? Hes not "into" anything really like music or movies. We ussually get him tools but thats simply out of our 'cheap' budget this yr.
Im SO CLUELESS! any help?

  • ... a big tin of popcorn :) LOL


    a hat

    IDK keep it cheap. :) if he's not really into anything, it's own damn fault he's so difficult to shop for... if he complains tell him to get a hobby or something so you'll know what to get next year.

    I remember when I got my evil stepmom a pair of cooking gloves since I hardly ever see her cook lol, she told me that I should of gotten her something for her to wear like perfume, clothes or jewelery so by saying that I guess she didnt like the cooking gloves, even though u can wear those too lol. she's all into western so they had a rooster and were some nice green color, I thought they were cute lol.
