It's always easy for me to come up with new ideas for my daughter, but my boys, especially as they get older, are harder. So, I decided to surf the net and see what ideas I could find, and share them here.
One idea I liked that was repeated in several places was to come up with a theme for a favorite sport or hobby. For instance --
A movie theme would include a new DVD, movie-size boxed candy, some movie tickets, some gourmet popcorn.
For the athlete, some golf balls and tees, baseballs and bubble gum and cracker jacks, wrist bands, foot powder!, a decal for their favorite team.
For the outdoorsman, how about a Swiss army knife, some hand warmers, and beef jerky?
For the teen with a car -- a key chain, car air freshener, tire gauge, car wax.
Here are some general ideas:
cologne (small sample sizes are fun)
quarters for laundry for college students
sunglasses or strap for sunglasses
a hacky sack or yo-yo (boys will be boys)
dog toy for his favorite 'fur buddy'
If you have some suggestions, include them in a comment!
