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.

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.

Smart wool socks, 1 tire from PBK, inner tubes? Gloves, warmers, baselayers, shoe covers? Hammer billboard bike clothing during the year end sale
