As much as you love an aunt or uncle, it can be hard to find a gift for him or her. Your parents may have selected the gifts when you were growing up, so finding the right gift doesn't come as naturally as it does for a friend or sibling. Fortunately, the gift-selecting process is the same. Use what you know about that special person to find something unique, personalised or sentimental, and don't feel self conscious if you're on a budget.

Cinema tickets

Whether you have a large extended family or a limited budget, aunts and uncles do not expect you to spend a lot of money on them. A gift card to a movie theatre offers them a fun night out and saves you from having to guess. Most large and independent movie theatres offer gift cards online. It's a good idea to find out if the card has an expiration date or depreciates in value and write the date on the card so they can use it in time. Attach the gift card to a tin of popcorn or include it with your Christmas card if you won't get to see them in person.

Framed photo or art

Aunts and uncles never seem to have enough photos of nieces and nephews. If your favourite uncle still has your baby photo on his fridge, it's time for an update. You can embellish a plain wooden frame, but the main gift will be a nice, recent photo of you. If you have a spouse or children of your own, give your uncle a recent family portrait. The photo will make him feel special and give him something personal to share with all of his friends. Uncles and aunts love to brag about their nieces and nephews.

Customised mug or clothing

The photo department of large pharmacies and department stores often offer customisable mugs and clothing. Choose a photo of you and your aunt, one of your aunt's favourite places or a silly picture of you holding out your hand for a high-five and have it printed on a T-shirt or mug, or drop the photo in a photo ornament. Stuff the mug with her favourite tea, chocolate-covered espresso beans or homemade cookies.
