What would be a good Christmas gift?

I have about half of my family members' presents purchased but a couple are really tough to buy for. I have an 8 year old nephew, a 38 year old brother, and two sisters. 35 and 28 years old respectively.Anyone around the same age and gender with suggestions?

The nephew loves x box and the two sisters received machetes last year, so that's not an option. What gifts would you like to receive?

black ops/halo reach for the kid if he doesnt have them. (although maybe to young for black ops, your call)

maybe chivas regal for the brother, or whatever kind of hooch he likes, those crown royal bundles make nice gifts, bottle of crown + 2 crown glasses etc for like 25-30$.

maybe booze for your sisters as well? or gift cards to get a free massage or spa time etc, or manicures/pedicures w.e

I'd be totally delighted to receive a spa service or a high end bottle of something as a gift, regardless of who it was from.

8 year old girls like gift cards to wherever they shop, if memory serves.

My rule of thumb is: what is it that they are unlikely to buy for themselves, but would still use?

What was abnormal was the amount of whiskey I drank on a Tuesday. I'm sure those would be fine gifts xeb. Thanks for the ideas

I have a similar problem. For the bro does he hunt or fish or do anything outdoors? if so go into a bass pro shop or Gander Mt and throw a rock and you will hit a gift for him lol. If there are gun ranges around maybe get him a membership to one if you think that would be ok ...The sisters I have to agree with the spa idea.

Foe the kid, you can't go wrong with a toys-r-us gift card. Extra credit for going with him to spend it.(or a toy jeep)

For your brother he'd probably like nothing better than for you to add his name to the spa service cards for your sisters, relieving him of the same dilemma.

We have guns but we don't hunt Guess I could buy him some ammo and a bottle. The spa thing will be tough cause we don't even have a stoplight in the town we live in, much less a spa facility. Would it be worth traveling for spa time?

They don't really drink either, so they wouldn't appreciate the bottle. Have to keep brainstorming I guess...
