Thought it would be a good place for people to dump their ideas. I know I'm having trouble for a few people and figured I'd hit up some like-minded gals for ideas.

So, what are you gifting your:

Husband?
If boyfriend/partner, how many years together?
Mother?
Father?
Grandparents?
Daughter?
Son?
Sister?
Brother?
In-laws?
Extended family (aunts, cousins, etc.)?
Best friend?
Group of girlfriends?
Neighbors?
What are you bringing to your casual Gift Exchange (specify if there's a $ limit)

How long have you been with your boyfriend? Cologne is a hit-or-miss type of gift. If you don't know him that long, you may not know that he hates certain smells / fragrances.
