For an interesting gift, why not put together a basket of small items the adult would enjoy? If he's a fishing enthusiast, throw in some lures, some line, and some snacks for a day of fishing. If she likes to sew, throw in different threads, squares of fabric, and some interesting patterns.
If the gift is for someone you don't know very well, throw in some neutral items like candles, bubble bath, specialty cheeses or wine. Tie an interesting bow on top, and voila! You've just created a unique and useful gift without spending too much money!
