    I have to buy a gift for a unisex gift swap I do with the adults in my extended family...Ages range from 30s - 60s. This is always such a creative, thoughtful group. Any ideas? TIA for any suggestions.

    Thanks, Dave! Now a dumb question: what is a Leatherman?

    I know! That is the tough part. I'd like to try to avoid a gift card, if possible. It's a challenge every year.

    It's the brand name for a pocket multi-tool.

    Yes, yes, I see...I'll bet your Leatherman goes very well with those leather @ssless chaps you like to wear. ;) :7

    I like the planner idea.

    How about a little basket full of coffee stuff-if you go into Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks they have fun stuff you can get. Chocolate covered espresso beans, coffee mugs, to-go mugs, coffee itself, etc.

    Or maybe a nice bottle of wine?

    I'm sure you could find something small at Target or Kohl's.

    Thank you for the responses. The fact that it is unisex *is* what makes it so darn challenging. Last year, some bought gifts that were gender-specific but generic: i.e. a tool kit, a VS gift card. I might have to go that route.

    Appreciate the ideas!!

    I have it. I'm going to get a Livestrong baseball cap plus a Dick's gift certificate.
