Ooh! Love the rum cakes and pictures ideas. I think I'm going to get DH this: http://www.kotulas.com/deals/4in1-paper-log-maker#pr-header-148828
It's not the most romantic gift in the world or anything, but DH made one himself that works okay, but only makes one brick at a time. So now every time we get that magazine he stares at this thing for a good solid 5 minutes. We get a lot of junk mail, and get the paper every day, so this would help us out with recycling and re-using all of that paper waste. Plus we have a fire pit in our back yard that we would use the bricks in, and they're really nice for cold mornings when we're camping to get the fire going quick.
ETA: We use the bricks for firestarters, not as a replacement for wood.
