krista, how do you know who your giftee is? or do you just have a gift that is pretty much suitable for anyone?
As for me, I'm in between "count me in! I want presents!" and "I have no money. I wonder if my potential giftee would like a nice collage of Cape Girardeau brochures or a stuffed toy made from fabric scraps or perhaps I could make something from papier-mache..."
The "I want presents!" part will probably win over, though. I can be AWFULLY creative when it comes to making things. I spent less than three dollars on my younger sister's sixteenth birthday gift and it's fantastic (if I do say so myself)
So I suppose the actual question and point is: is there a price range that we're supposed to stay within? what might it be?
