Earth quake kit I can do because it has been pretty popular as gifts lately. I don't think it would be used...

I am on the same boat as you for my office.

Here are some of my experiences (hopefully help out fellow members), somewhere in the range of $20-$25:

@ Winners/Home Sense:
- Box of wine glasses/shot glasses. (Good for M/W)
- Earphones, everyone has a cell phone. (Good for M/W)
- Scarves/Gloves, decent colors. (Good for M/W))
- Found some men electric shavers by philips @ Joey Burnaby location for $20
- Home Decor stuff, like houseware/dishes/bowls. (Good for M/W)
- Ipad accessories (only if they have apple products, otherwise universal earphones are always usable)
- Ties or cufflinks. (Good for M)
- Glass vases or home ornaments (Good for W)
- Weights, small dumbbells (Good for M/W for light lifting and good laughs to anyone who receives that gift - tell them they are a lightweight LOL )
- Picture frames or portrait hangers (Good for M/W or families)
- Mens Wallet (Good for M)
- Stainless Credit card holder case, great for ppl who just stores a few CC and quick cash on a night out. (Good for M/W)

@ Home Depot (mostly for MEN)
- They have great stocking stuffers from screwdriver sets/tools/chivels/wrenches/etc. Just find the stocking stuffers section near the cashier (Home Depot Terminal location). All under $25, a lot of selection of small tools.

M/W means Men and Women, for those who dont know LOL... the best thing is its pretty universal presents, more thought into deciding, looks better than just gift cards, and its not breaking the bank. And most of these gifts are acceptable to both sex, so if he/she doesnt like them, its easy for them to re-gift to someone else.

Hope that helps some ppl.

Depends on what your relationship with that person is. Personally , what I look most forward to every year is socks and underwear. So I'd be happy with that.

I usually purchase a bottle of Belvedere for my father but once in a while I'll throw in a bottle of Crown Royal, Jack Daniels, Disaronno, Johnny Walker or Jim Beam.

Emergency Kits can be quite costly. Backpack ones run from about $110 for 1 person to $430 for 6 people. But great idea and i wouldnt mind giving or receiving one of those.

things like quality bathroom towels, nice salt and pepper shakers, bathroom/kitchen floor mats.. are the kinds of things people never really buy for themselves or could always use.
