When it comes to birthdays and holidays, sometimes people are strapped for cash. In those instances, my family gives "services" for gifts.
For example, my Mom knew I wanted to repaint a very large room in my condo that would take me a long time to paint alone or be very expensive if I hired someone to do it. Since my Mom is a very experienced painter, her birthday gift to me was assistance painting that room.
