    because I have boys I have to admit I HATE, HATE, HATE trying to do stocking stuffers or Easter Baskets for the boys. Small yet inexpensive things I struggle with. Gift cards are need to be $10 or more to get much out of them really. Deoderent and body spray will work. Favorite drink/sodas. Tools, socks, zip ties (always seem to need them) duck tape, SD card, favorite candy. i am sure others will add a lot of other good ideas.

    I agree, I hate getting stuff for my DS16!! I usually do $25 amazon gift cards, $25 itunes, Axe spray/ body soap and for my son, since hes a snowboarder, its usually something snowboard related. Just something small, like a lock and some snowboarding tools.

    I have leather wallets I got for $5 at after Christmas sales. I'm going to tuck Starbucks gc in them. I always get chocolate oranges, beef jerky, batteries and a deck of cards for them --all their favs -- and then I tuck a small gift which is the wallets this year.

    For the men of the family, I usually go with a theme and rotate them every few years...sometimes it's a bucket with car wash supplies and a few favorite snacks, sometimes I stuff their stockings with every kind of tape I can find...electrical, masking, painters, duct, etc. (My BIL loves that one and requested the "tape" stocking again last year) you can even add those little tubes of Krazy Glue, etc.

    I have to say the favorite is usually the sports-themed stockings...sometimes I pick one sport for all, i.e., football, and sometimes I'll pick a favorite team. My dad is a Mets fan, so for him I'd fill a stocking or container with peanuts in the shell, cracker jacks, a calendar or book about his team, etc. For kids/teens maybe add a packet of Big League Chew? Toss in a couple of packs of baseball cards or something with the team logo and you'll have a happy camper. Also keep in mind that lots of team logo stuff goes on sale post-season...you can stock up for next year or give them a GC to purchase what they want...MLB, NFL, NHL, NBA and PGA all have their own "official" shopping sites. For the golf fan - a new towel, some tees, glove, pick or brush to clean clubs, etc.

    I've also done a sports MOVIE theme - lots of "classics" can be picked up relatively cheaply...Caddy Shack, Slap Shot, Bull Durham, Any Given Sunday, etc...add a few movie snacks, popcorn, etc. I have a list of movies at home in my NB...let me know if you want it!

    Just a few ideas. If I think of anymore I'll post them. Hope this helps!
