    Any ideas for gifts?

    My family keeps asking me for a "wish list" for Christmas. I don't think I want or need much other than more bike swag. Anything good that I could ask for, especially in the $20 and $50 range (maybe up to $100 if people pool together)?

    You mean OTHER than bike stuff?
    Or bike stuff? - I usually get handlebar tape, socks, and Clif Bars.

    Cool socks. Or better yet, warm wool socks. Never have too many.
    WANTED: Not a darn thing. I've got it all. Life is good.

    Well, this may or may not help, but my wife and I came up with a wonderful solution for this problem a few years ago. We decide on a budget. Then we secretly go buy what we want for ourselves and wrap things up. I open her packages, she opens mine. It is always a surprise that way. Boy, will she be surprised this year!

    Agree with things like socks... can never have too many.

    Perhaps things like tubes (personally, I go through them like nobody's business), patch kits, tools, waterbottles, CO2 cartridges, gloves, sunscreen (hey, it's expensive and provides essential protection!)...

    You will likely need a good rain jacket this winter and spring.
