Gift cards are too lame? Then, get your dad a shirt he hates and your aunt clothes she hates, as well, and then tell them "at least it wasn't a lame present", while your dad and aunt are thinking "I'm going to return this lameass gift tomorrow and get something that doesn't suck."
Get them both magazine subscriptions. Who doesn't like a good magazine?
Get your Dad Sporting News (3 years under $6.24 or 1 year for $3.29 on eBay and it works I tried it). If he already gets it, then just renew it. Hard to beat ten bucks for three years for a weekly magazine.
Maybe get your Aunt a cooking magazine. I don't know if she is a good cook or anything but if she is bad then the cooking magazine would be funny.
What you do to wrap them is...print out something that has a picture of one of the issues of the magazine subscription that they receive and say its coming, put it in a box, wrap it and you are good to go...simple, easy, cheap...
I just bought ESPN magazine off of eBay for 4 years for $6.49. I just did it yesterday so I don't know if it will work, but it should; the seller has good feedback.
OK I've procrastinated like hell. I need gifts for my dad, as well as my aunt...both ideally less than $50. Any ideas? What did you guys get your family? Time is running out oh teh noesss!!!1
On Christmas just tell your father and aunt "paps, aunt, come here for a sec, i got a present for you" then when they come up you should kick your dad in the nuts and squeeze your aunts boobies. That's a good gift since that's the kind of person you are; A jackass
