Most of the presents on this list tend towards the pricey end of things, but there's always room for a weird homemade gift or two. If you don't have a lot of money, but still want to give your loved ones something a little off kilter, why not try making a big batch of George Washington's egg nog? All it takes is cream, eggs, sugar, milk, and enough booze to float a frigate. The recipe is available from "The Old Farmer's Almanac," although -- as the site notes -- while our first President was explicit about the need for "Jamaica" rum and rye whiskey, he was less precise when it came to number of eggs you should add. Personally, I went with a cool dozen.
