The Gift of Experience: Give your loved one a hot-air balloon ride for an unforgettable gift. Hot air balloon rides are a breathtaking adventure as the balloon travels wherever the wind goes. This averages $230. Or, for your fella or gal pal who has a need for speed, rent a luxury car for the day. The price depends on the car, but a day rental for an Aston Martin is about $1,200.

Give the Gift of History: Giving your loved one a gift that will help them remember the historical moments in 2008 is a great idea. It’s the gift that keeps on giving because many historical collectibles gain value over time. Also, if the memorabilia is small like an Obama button or playing cards, it will make a great stocking stuffer.
