I may be weird, but a lot of the things mentioned would go into my regift box...and I know anyone who buys for me would know that.
We have so many books and kitchen gadgets. I don't need kitchen towels, picture frames would be ok depending on the type.
I would look into the person you are shopping for. What do they like, what do they use a lot? And go from there.
