I need inexpensive gift suggestions. $5.00 or less! For Christmas.

Older teens, homeless men. Hubby and I are buying for them instead of each other. We already bought perfumes, fingernail polish, shaving cream, soap, and deodorants. We wanted to try to add a more personal gift to each one of them something they may not need but that may want.

    Can you bake for these gifts? Biscotti is pretty easy and looks high end. I'd use something like this then instead of coarse sugar on top, I'd dip each one in melted chocolate chips. (tip: add a little shortening to the chocolate if is too thick. Be careful and don't get it too hot.

    I'm sorry should have explained better. Instead of my husband and I getting gifts for one another we decided to donate gifted to a local teen center(my gifts and hubby to a male adult homeless shelter). No soap, deodorants, shaving cream, or perfumes. Got those already. We want possibly home made gifts. Thank you all.
