Christmas on a zero dollar budget?

Mission Impossible? Christmas gifts for wife with a zero dollar budget. Due to my current unemployment, Mrs COD and myself have agreed that we will not spend a single dime on each other for Christmas. We did spend a little so that the kids have a few things to unwrap. However, having nothing under the tree just seems so depressing. Anybody have any creative ideas?

How do I get to Hawaii often and cheaply?

One of my favorite people is moving to Honolulu for a few years, and I would like to visit (from NYC) often and cheaply. Are there any Hawaii-specific frequent travel hacks/tips I should know about, beyond setting up a few price alerts? Are there any frequent flyer programs that would be particularly rewarding in this situation?

Can I use cheap booze for my homemade extract or will it be terrible?

I am making homemade vanilla extract for christmas presents. I was planning to use smirnoff, but money is tighter than I anticipated this month. If I use bottom shelf vodka, will it be terrible? What is the least crappy brand of bottom shelf vodka? I don't have a brita filter to purify the vodka unfortunately, but if there is another cheap way to make it better I could do that. Thanks!
