Ok so I'm totally stumped on what to get for our sibling white elephant exchange. There's 2 guys, 3-4 girls depending on if my SIL's sis joins in. Anyway, past presents have been: wireless speaker, headphones, margaritas glass/pitcher set with ingredients, breakfast/brunch food set. Gift cards are discouraged. My DH is getting lawn wine bottle and glasses stakes and one of those air couch things that you blow up, and a bottle of wine.
Thing is though, all my siblings are currently living with my parents because they're both between houses. My brother and his family literally sold all their stuff and went on sabbatical until their dream home is built next summer. My sister is living there until who knows when
I'm totally stumped! Help!

For ours I bought the Chewbacca mom mask.
Figure it'll be good for some laughs day of even if no one really wants it.

Seems like they would probably want something consumable so it will be gone... Or maybe tickets to something? Movie tickets + dessert?

Oh boy this is a tough one. Definitely not more stuff unless your parent's house is big enough! I would think more towards an event...wine tasting, reservations somewhere (made and prepaid that'll get around the gift card), food/drink...I'll keep thinking!

What about something like a coffee subscription? You could do a pair of mugs to open. We love driftaway and they actually send out a tasting kit and then send you different coffee each time depending on your ratings so it's a lot of fun. Your budget would get you 3-4 shipments I believe, they have a bunch of options.

Haha, I feel your pain! This is why for my husband's family Secret Santa I lobbied hard to include 3 gift ideas.
We ended up gifting liquor and a lunch.

Yea I agree with trying to avoid "stuff".
What about a food basket? Fun chocolates to try or something

@Cole: I'm going to check that out for sure,thank you!
Thank you for the ideas!
I looked into some event tickets that are coming up in the next couple months and there's a ballet in February that looks cool. A dark, sexy take on beauty and the beast by our local ballet company. I think even if my DH or brother got it, it's a good date night thing.

This is "stuff" but it's one of my favorite things to give:

My coworker got a tinsel pig from target in her sibling exchange last year. We've had a blast having it at the office. It was even part of a holiday facebook campaign/video shoot we had recently

An aeropress. It is pretty small, makes strong coffee or shots of espresso and you can then make lattes or mochas. It was given to me as a gift and I have since gifted it to other people several times, and it has been loved and used.
