Looking for some unusual consumable gifts? Cookies might not seem unusual - but these are Cookies for Kids' Cancer, where "100% of the profit from your purchase will directly fund pediatric cancer research."
You could "adopt" a beehive and get raw honey and beeswax candles from that hive.
Know a crafter who works with fleece in some form - a felter, knitter, etc. - and who doesn't already have multiple years worth of supplies? You could adopt a sheep and get its fleece (raw or processed) - or, in some cases, pay extra to have the fleece turned into spun yarn. Some programs offer extras such as sheep milk soap or an invitation to the shearing party. Some of the farms offering adopt-a-sheep programs are Owens Farm in Pennsylvania, Quaker Hill Farm in Michigan, and Wise Guy Acres in Minnesota. Update on Dec. 2, 2012: I'm no longer finding a web site for Wise Guy Acres.
These Keep Calm and Carry On bandages (or plasters) are available from many online sources - just when I thought we'd exhausted the product possibilities from the old Keep Calm poster.
Other bandages you might like are the WTF bandages and the cat bandages. Update on Dec. 2, 2012: The company that sold these says they are sold out.
For more consumable ideas, see my post from a few days ago.
