    Default Christmas 2017 Gift Ideas

    Looking for new or unusual gifts for the missus and others. I'm especially interested in ideas for men in the $30 to $100 range. We host a Christmas Eve dinner for family and friends and we usually pass out gifts to the attendees. I heard a radio spot today ad for Mancrates and I like the idea of passing out small wooden crates with the supplied crowbar to open them up. They're overpriced given the contents, but still look pretty funny. And manly. My wife dishes out the girly stuff.

    I'm trying to find "Oh Wow!" gifts for different age groups without breaking the bank.

    If you've found something unusual, clever or anything else you're excited about giving this year, please report.

    In our office gift exchange I drew the name of a guy across the country, with a similar spending budget. I wanted to send him some bourbon from High West distillery in Utah, but the Virginia DABC only allows delivery on orders over $100.

    So I went with Amazon's best selling hobby drone. It gets good reviews, and seems to be a good entry level choice for amateurs. It would be fun to play around with from time to time, and doesn't require an FAA permit.

    "Discipleship is not a spectator sport. We cannot expect to experience the blessing of faith by standing inactive on the sidelines any more than we can experience the benefits of health by sitting on a sofa watching sporting events on television and giving advice to the athletes. And yet for some, “spectator discipleship” is a preferred if not primary way of worshipping." -Pres. Uchtdorf

    Now I've got my Dad's present - he's an old cannon cocker

    I may be small, but I'm slow.
