Do you knit?  There are some great yarn sales this time of year.  Maybe some quick scarves on big needles for your brother and BIL(his in university colors), and maybe a Harry Potter scarf for your pal Mikey.

I've made washcloths from Sugar & Cream yarn(really cheap) and add a fancy bar of soap, which to me is that nice soap from Trader Joes for the nieces and girl pals.

If you want to sew, boxer shorts or pj pants are fun and inexpensive and pretty easy to make.  Although I don't know if it would be uncomfortable to give your brother & BIL.  Amusing fabrics, maybe cammoflage for your bro, make them less intimate.

Last year I made a fleece hat for the husband.  Fleece is a good deal this time of year too.  There are a couple cute styles on Marthastewart.com that don't require a pattern.

I like your idea of the redone Barbies!

Hmmm.....  For those kids whom like barbies, try checking out https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=209088.0

They make these dressable dolls called poppets.  They seem fairly easy to make and you can make them any way you like with any kind of fabric.

For the adult ladies...  try beaded jewelry

for those who don't like jewelry - think of something practical, you cant go wrong with table cloths, place mats, hand bags, scarves, hats, scrunchies, sweaters, etc...

For the guys... find out what their fav colors are and make them winter hats and scarves, or something like that.

You can't go wrong with hand made ornaments.
