$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!

    • We actually just watched the first season of this show on Netflix finally. We loved it! We binge watched it and it only took us a little over a week to watch the entire season. We actually just finished watching Breaking Bad this winter and this was the next show we started. Season 2 should be out on Netflix within the next month or so I should think?
    • A lot of great ideas , seems liquid smoke is a fav, lipton is a good thought too. Great looking burglars fellas, and that bacon wrapped meatloaf looks mouth watering thirdeye.  I went back through my pics looking for the open pit burgers but all I found were steaks, but holy moly I must eat burglars a lot Cuz there's a bunch. Think next time I'll mix it up and see if anyone notices, thanks gents and keep the pics coming!!
    •   I agree. I wasn't exactly counting down to the midseason premiere, either, but it was a good, solid episode. I also really liked the clothes line scene--best action sequence in quite some time. I was impressed with the start overall and it's nice to see some sense of urgency and not just Rick moping around licking wounds.   Last night was...okay. Nothing stood out as bad, but it wasn't mind-blowingly good either. I am still reserving judgment for how this season ends, but half two is off to a pretty good start. I just hope they don't go off on a side character episode and kill the momentum they have going...
    • I for got, we added wild rice too!!  and only hand harvested too, I think it makes a huge difference in taste.
    •   Think his staff just wanted a break ........
    • What is your prediction on how soon after ice out that people will be out on Mille Lacs.  I am guessing within a week.   
    • I just pulled the trigger and bought the Milwaukee 1/2 inch brushless fuel drill and the 6 inch K drill setup.  Tested it this past weekend.   Could not be happier. 23 holes and battery still had one bar left. This was in approximately 18-20 inches of good ice. 5.0 battery. 
    • the one mentioned here, they have gone up to $399.99 but they still had free shipping and no has them around here.  they were very pleasant to talk to and get info.
    • One big boy just left Elite and went back to Mathews. Elite is a good shooting bow. 
    •     I'm sure God approves. After all, he's not in charge down here anyway...
