$10-$15 Gift Ideas

10 posts in this topic

We always have a gift exchange at Christmas and it's limited to $10-$15. It gets harder every year to come up with ideas so I thought I'd see if anybody can throw out some here. Has anybody bought or received anything unique/useful/fun? We're mainly a fishing and camping group. Thanks.

A few years back, my kids gave me and their godfathers Oldtimer pocket knives. One of the godfathers is a first responder and he says he's used for that, too.

I got an assortment of hook removing tools one year that must still be in that price range: the red plastic double-ended thing, longnosed forceps, needle-nosed pliers with sidecutter, spring-loaded mouth opener.

How about giving them a leg up on their buddies on the ice! Give them some "Bio-Bait" and give them the chance to shine. It's cheap and is easy to keep.

Can't go wrong with fishing lures. Nothing makes a fisherperson smile more than adding more tackle to his/her arsenal. Or I could be a tackle freak. smile.gif

You can hardly go wrong with a pair of Smartwool Hunting Extreme socks. I got mine at Gander Mountain in Maple Grove for $16.95. No more feet that sweat and then get cold. Toasty tootsies! Yaaaaaaaaaay!

    • Thanks for the link.
    •   Well Friday, Saturday, and Sunday have all come and gone. And nothing came, because your link is Zero Hedge.     I just took that straight from Wikipedia. It's amazing home much those last few words just keep showing up.
    • http://www.politifact.com/truth-o-meter/promises/trumpometer/   This is what you are looking for.
    •   Sounds like the House of Reps. who pulled their AHCA (Ryan/Trump  Care) so when their fellow Rep. voted it down every one would know who was against or for it. Now none of them have to explain how they voted, the same as how some on here weasel out of explaining their statements, by reverting to name calling.
    • caught my first fish with a lamprey on it and also got a 35 inch pike on a salamander. 
         
    •   Bafflegab! Hot darn! I like that! Is that like my psychobabble, aka Mayospeak , or to quote Thurber, Pussgrapple or even Cussgravy? I haveta remember that!  "Bafflegab found in this one"?! Go look on the health thread, where yer buddy juicedup gets yammering away at you! ! Now THERE's some  real balderdash and twaddle! Yes, some good, informative threads used to exist here! Once in awhile, you can even run across one! Gotta look hard! 
    • The bite was on last week. With 4 guys we caught over 700 fish in 3.5 days.  And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.  Actually 700 is probably a conservative estimate because we had to have averaged at least 50 fish per person per day and it was probably much more than that.  Yes some of them were 10" saugers but there were many 16 to 20"+ walleye and the crappie size was the nicest I've seen in 4 years with no keepers under 12" and several 13-14" with 2 at 15.25".  All of the pavement pounding and scouting this winter and last week really paid off on this trip!  This is the most hardcore group of guys I fish with and they really know how to put the smackdown on these fish.   
    •   If you guys need fishing advice just ask. I've never had a problem sharing. 
    • Any time I have ever tried that it creates havoc with the sonar until it floats back up the hole and is removed but if anyone has a fix for this let me know.
