A cast iron skillet, gym membership or a paleo book?
Here's a few ideas:
organic fruit delivery service for a few months (only if they eat a decent amount of fruit, not all paleo folk do)
buy them a CSA share for 2012
make a donation to a local organic farm in their name
local honey or really good quality maple syrup
super fancy and special spices or dried herbs
A CROCKPOT (I may be biased, but a good crockpot is AMAZING.)
gift card to a local butcher/Whole Foods/etc.
mandolin slicer (for all those veggies!)
really good salad spinner (OXO has a stainless steel one that's AWESOME)
homemade infused olive oils
really good quality supplements (they are so pricey, I would love this gift!)
set of Pyrex glass storage containers (this was the BEST baby gift we got, and it was a weird baby gift, but we have cherished these and used them for all of our leftovers!)
subscription to Paleo Magazine
Hope these help!
1) House Visit from Dr. K
2) Aravind and Kamal come out of TR for the month.
3) Attend event catered by JuBu
4) Play chess with Travis.
5) Workout with Jack.

Give a man a fish and feed him for a day. Give a man a cast iron skillet and feed him for a lifetime.
Not that this analogy really applies so well, but I'd say a cast-iron skillet would make a great gift.
Perfect Health Diet. All things considered, the best evidenced based Paleo book out there IMO
I'm on a perpetual tight budget, so I usually go with homemade gifts. Some gifts I've given in the past; jars of unsweetened berry jams, jars of saurkraut, jars of kimchi, specially flavored pretty bottles of kombucha, applesauce, pearsauce, beeswax candles...I've never given books, but there are so many wonderful paleo nutrition and cookbooks one could potentially get for a gift, and quite possibly used if your budget is like mine! I have also given coupons for an initial consultation with me to family and friends, and I have made face creams and body scrubs as well.
I like to give crockpots or slow cookers - such a good time of year for those.
I would love to get a le creuset dish!
EDIT: this year I am giving homemade vanilla and homemade preserved meyer lemons in a gift basket. I'm getting together with two girlfriends with kids the same age - the kidlets are having a sleepover and us ladies are making vanilla and preserving lemons and drinking a box of wine! Nothing better than Christmas - I think I'll make glog(swedish mulled wine) out of the box of wine !
