If you've got a person in the family that loves to scrapbook the old-fashioned way, you could do worse than giving them a Lucca Leather Photo Album ($145-$190). Each one features sewn edges in accent colors, soft interior lining, and a self-contained cover window pocket. They come with 40 pages to start, but can be expanded using expander posts and refill sheets. It's a gift that they'll keep around for a long, long time.
Spying on a neighbor goes Bond with the Spion Orbitor Electronic Listening Device ($60). This weapon-looking device can let you hear conversations up to 300 feet away and record up to 120 seconds. It comes with an adjustable frequency controller to help with background noise as well as an on-board 10x spyglass for visually seeing the target you're spying on.
