Here are some disappearing gift ideas that will hopefully be used and take up little to no space!


* Gift cards—think beyond department stores

* DVD rentals

* Favorite restaurants

* Specialty shops

* Hotels

* Putt Putt Golf

If you think gift cards are too impersonal, think of disappearing things to put with it. Get a big popcorn bowl and fill it with popcorn packets, movie size candies, bottled root beer. The point is, fill it with stuff that will be used and not stored.

* Bath products

* Magazine subscriptions (make sure the recipient would like it)

* Homemade coupons for free stuff—home cooked meal,
       gutter cleaning, dinner & a movie
