    Hey guys, we are getting ready for our second annual 4th of July week of camping in northern Michigan. My wife's, brother's, in-laws (there must be a better way of saying that) have custody of our neices and nephew (long story, family drama). They have 10 acres near Kalkaska. It's a rustic property adjacent to many orv trails and a nice lake. We really enjoy ourselves up there spending time with family. They are awesome hosts. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions for a gift? Not looking to buy anything extravagant. Maybe $30 max, just to show our appreciation. It's a party atmosphere, so I was thinking something funny would be nice. Suggestions?

    Liking the Flamingo idea. If it's party related I think I would drill out some of those dollar shooters and put some string lights in them. (Assuming they drink). You'll even get to drink!

    That was going to be my other suggestion, some sort of sign / flag.

    Just say "my niece and nephew's other grandparents". :)

    How about a custom sign? I've used these folks with great results: https://www.buildasign.com

    You could personalize it for them.
