Collectable items can be a nice idea for gifts. My mom used to give the kids an engraved ornament each year for Christmas, with the year and their names engraved on them. I thought it was pretty cool. There are lots of other collectable items or collectibles available too. Some people collect salt and pepper shakers or blown glass figures, etc. I like adding to someone's collection. It doesn't need to be anything big or super expensive, but I think it's a nice, thoughtful gift, if I can find a special item to add.
