Christmas stocking stuffer ideas?

Here are a few ideas for things you could do yourself:

For children:  a holiday-themed digital coloring book which the child 
can color on the screen using a palette of colors provided by the 
programmer (you)--kinda like a very limited "paint" program

Digital flip book of family photos, other photos of interest (tho why 
you'd use Rev to reinvent a powerpoint file escapes me--but hey it's an 

Digital Christmas card with animation and carols.
Variation on same, digital follow the bouncing ball karaoke program for 
Christmas carol sing-along (audio track has instrumental parts only).

I dredged up 20+ year old photos of my sister and brother-in-law during 
their first year of marriage and turned them into a cute little 
spiral-bound booklet of photos entitled "The Way We Were."  They really 
loved it, especially since they hadn't seen the photos in years.  You 
could do the same in Rev but, if you are lucky, include audio and video 
files (I had none, so hardcopy worked fine).

As for other people's programming, how about including Yibbah, if 
that's OK with Malte.

Ok, I'm out of ideas... can't wait to see what others come up with!
