Christmas on a zero dollar budget?

Mission Impossible? Christmas gifts for wife with a zero dollar budget.

However, having nothing under the tree just seems so depressing. Anybody have any creative ideas?

Free Birthday Ideas

The Spousal Unit knows I like to be made a fuss of on my birthday and is happy to oblige, but this year we're low on cash, and he's a little lost. I'm trying to compile a list of fun, cash-free (or very cheap) things to do, so he can pick a couple and run with it. We are in Portland, Oregon, and mostly homebodies. I'm a voracious reader, and lover of all things spooky, and general ideas are great.
