I Need Help: Christmas Presents

Christmas is FAST approaching! The Hubs realized last night that this weekend is our last weekend at home before Christmas. Next weekend we are traveling to St George to visit the Hubs' Mom and Step Dad, Bob and the weekend after that is AFTER CHRISTMAS!

I've already purchased 3 Christmas presents, yep only THREE! One if for a friend I'm having lunch with tomorrow, the other is for my sister (and just part of her gift) and the last one is for my Mom, but I got so excited I gave it to her on Thanksgiving.

I know what I'm getting my parents, and since I'm pretty sure they don't read my blog, I'll tell you what it is... Steak Knives! (Imagine I said that with Jazz Hands, it makes it more exciting).

My parents mentioned when they were over for dinner a month or so ago that their steak knives were REALLY old and I found an amazing deal on these.

Every other Christmas present I (we) need to buy I'm drawing a blank. I'VE GOT NOTHING PEOPLE!

Any ideas you have would be GREATLY appreciated, I need gifts for...
SIL and her boyfriend - Just moved in together, love traveling and wine.
MIL and Step FIL - Live in St George, UT, retired and just bought an RV.
FIL and Step MIL - Retiring first of next year, live in San Diego and will be starting to cook at home more, but would probably frown on a Cooking Light Subscription.
My sister - Reading, jewelry and clothes.

Those are the critical people, everyone else who gets something is just gravy and I thinking I'll make cookies for them. The funds are low, as I'm sure most of you can relate.

Thank for your help in advance!

This is a simple add-on gift (or great if you are buying a wine love a gc) it's a wine stopper/pourer. I got ours at Target and saw a similar one there tonight. Of course online there's no photo available, but let me tell you... I'm using Target gift cards we get from the wedding to buy a few more of these. They're SO convenient... stops the wine and makes it very easy to pour the wine!

For your SIL and boyfriend, depending on how much you want to spend, you could get them the wine-of-the-month club. We're getting my SIL and her husband the salsa-of-the-month club.

Thanks Ladies :)
Pug(s) - That is a great idea! and we're using all our Macy's giftcards for presents hahaha
Jessica - A salsa of the month club sounds DELISH! I'm going to look into the wine of the month :)

I always like "experience" gifts. A gift certificate for brunch at local restaurant, manicure, gift certificate for the movies, or a wine/cheese class :) Good luck!

Krista - I do too :) Maybe I can get my sister something like that. THANKS!

What about magazine subscriptions. They are the gift that keeps on giving :). Like Food and Wine and a bottle of wine for your SIL and boyfriend.

For your MIL and step FIL, maybe a USA travel guide?
