We decided not to go all out this year and went to sportsman and got each others gifts at the same time. She got some snow pants, gloves, and a few other misc items. I got a holster, some gloves, hogue grips, and a couple other misc items. We both got some Wool socks too. The rest of the $ is spent on the house and fixing it up.

It might make a better story if you tell everyone that you picked it up during a canoe trip, with some of the guys, down south. grin

A Cold Steel Spetznaz shovel. (need to find a way to sharpen it)
Couple of Boker folders.
Olson's book on primative skills.
The reprinted Angier (didn't tell them I already have a copy)
Les' book

And the item I'm debating on using now, or saving some of: three premium dark chocolate bars with chili in them. Had to test one- YUM!

Edit Reason: forgot the chocolate.

DW, with the help of one of my friends, managed to purchase and hide a fully tricked out Mossberg 500 Tactical shotgun. Imagine my suprise on Christmas morning. I was only expecting a few small odds and ends for the endless quest of Preparedness nirvana. "Homeland Security" preps now complete. grin

Wife and I have been cutting back on gift exchange as after 40 years of present buying we're both pretty well at a loss as to what to buy each other. I did get her a day (well, maybe a half day) at the local spa.

I bought myself a Tamarak walking stick to take on my dog walks and a Jetboil PCS for when Ziggy (my dog, not the DW) and I go trail walking.

DD1 got an extra paycheck (she works for me) and DD2 some money to get her home from Alaska for a visit (it will be almost a year since we've seen her by the time she gets home).

For my sibs and their spouses we donated in their names to charity that would leverage our money 10-fold or more towards clothing, food and school supplies for folks overseas.

It was a quiet Christmas but peaceful. Still trying to dispose of 12 dozen cookies DW got at a cookie exchange. Going to need to do a lot of dog walking...

A Henry .22 lever action rifle, "Frontier Model - H001T" I've been wanting a Henry for quite a while - I love this thing! A Nikon D700 Digital SLR camera (99.9% the wife's gift, but described as one of those "for both of us" gifts to justify the cost). Oh yeah, a newfangled Norelco razor ... the wife got tired of seeing me hack away at my face with a regular razor since my last electric broke. I also got this cool little "Gerber Artifact" thing. It's a mini-prybar, bottle opener, screwdriver, and Exacto knife blade pocket-thingy. Quite cool. And a few shirts to keep me dressed nice.

I did good. Some pouches for my jumbo fatboy (Janus, Rollypoly, Barnacle). A 3 person tent. Some Rocky socks (really warm), couple of sweaters, thermal underwear & cash. Oh and one of these for my bookshelf : grin
