I need some gift ideas and stocking stuffer ideas also. Thanks so much and happy thanksgiving.
American Silver Eagle or Canadian Maple Leaf coins
Warm wool socks
P38 can openers
Nice folding pocket knife
the list is endless
A Gift card to a local outdoors store/walmart.
I'm usually unsure what to get some of my relatives so I usually give them gift cards to places, can't go wrong there !
Kellogg makes fishing kits in mm canisters
paracord bracelets. The round kind .... hmm can't find that post now.
single cans of special foods?
anything on this list
Poor Man's Barter Items | Survival Forums
My wife and daughter seem to regularly give me shampoo, body wash and deodorant/antiperspirant... Hmmm... I thought they just didn't have other ideas, but now I wonder if they are trying to tell me something.
Nope, You've just got some practical women there. Congrats!
You really didn't need the 3/4HP router with power table. It wouldn't fit in the stocking anyway.
Gifts...grain mill, sewing machine, coffee pot, drill press, surgery kit, fire extinguisher, plate carrier w/plates, LTS food...
Stocking stuffers...flashlights, ammo, jerky, gloves, bag of quality coffee beans, any sort of PM's...
Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
It's not really a stocking STUFFER....but a knitting friend of mine knitted a stocking from paracord last year that I used for my son (he's 37)...she used some red with a green line running through it that I found at the local surplus store. I filled it with a couple kinds of jerky, a sharpening stone, a credit card knife, a deck of survival cards along with the typical fruit and nuts.
Seeds and seed gift certificates for the new year.
Some of the items on my and my wife's wish lists include the following:
Gun cleaning supplies
Holster - possibly one of the garment types with under shoulder pocket
Food Saver vaccum sealing bags
LEM meat grinding supplies
Other ideas for you:
LEM meat grinder (Favorite Meat Grinder or Sausage maker | Survival Forums
About anything Bear puts up for sale
Food Saver vaccum sealing system
SOG Trident Elite knife for keeping in each car (inexpensive and has opening assist, glass breaker and seatbelt cutter)
Water purifiers (Sawyer, MSR, Katadin, etc.)
Polar fleece garments (Columbia, etc.) Lightweight, can insulate when wet, don't absorb much water, some are vogue
Cold weather gloves with Goretex (a must) liners
Medical books - (see this post for specific suggestions)
Medical supplies: CAT torniques, Israeli bandages, Quick clot, etc.
Join the crowd, buy a drone
NRA or GOA membership
An online course at Hillsdale College
A political donation to a conservative in their name (especially for liberal family and friends)
A crossbow or archery toys
A red dot optic or ACOG
Driveway alert system either by Chamberlin or Dakota Alert
NiMH batteries and charger
Solar battery charger
BatteryMINDer maintenance charger for BOV or Genset (2012 is good)
Engine coolant or block heater for winter starting
Electric seat cover if they don't have heated seats in vehicle
Yeti cooler (nothing says, "Honey, I love you" like a $500 ice chest- keeps ice frozen for 3 days and the bedroom cold even longer, unless she is a special gal, in which case ice will last no time in the bedroom. It's one of those extremes!)
THose Yeti coolers make me drool
For those on the naughty list
For those on the nice list:
Don't know about you, but when my wife is naughty, I sure ain't thinking about giving her coal.
Over the last six months, I've been buying up little odds and ends for stocking stuffers at auctions. They don't all have to be new, but many are. Mostly they're fun stuff, and because they were WAY cheap, I have more this year than ever before. It seems the younger the young'un, the more they like a medley of the most improbable stuff.
