My family swaps names for Christmas. Each person is supposed to write down a couple of suggestions for what they might like. My husband draws the name of my 17 year old cousin, who asks for lumber.
From snooping around a little I find out it is because he wants to build like a trebuchet or something like that. So I thought We'll get him a gift card to Lowe's or something because I can't really see fitting lumber under a tree. I hate the idea of getting a gift card though. Does anyone have any ideas of what I could put with the card so it's not so impersonal. I was gonna get a book on the topic but he apparently has his info already.
