The Luci lights are nice. You might not realize that they come in different variations. For a few dollars more than the basic you can get one that is rated for the outdoors and can be recharged by USB as well as solar.



They also just came out with a 100 lumen light string set, nice and bright for stringing under a canopy or inside the Clam shelters. It is also solar as well as USB rechargeable and the battery in it can be used to top up your cell phone if needed. Much more substantial than some of the other battery string lights. This one is a desirable keeper for sure.

How about a 12VT heated blanket or a heated throw cover? We use an 120 electric blanket, and boy is it nice! I have even seen microwave heated slippers that look good.

How do 12v heated blankets work? I would imagine they use a lot of battery power.

One that I saw in Amazon was rated at 4 amps.

Does that equate to much heat/warmth and how much battery power would you need to get through the night?

I have two of the ones that change color. At the Matagorda Madness rally, where the campsites had a pole for hanging a lantern, I tied up the Lucis with some nylon cord (they have a handle on each end) and let them hang from the lantern hook. Easy peasy, and colorful (plus they charged while hanging, during the day, and didn't blow away).

It's looking more and more that Luci lights are going to be included along with whatever else I figure out.

Luci lights are great. Annoying your neighbors is easier and they recharge during the day. Just hang it as close as you can to your neighbors camp site and leave it on all night.

Some things that my DW has enjoyed receiving since we started camping together:
  • Country Bound Microfiber Towels.
  • Socks from Country Bound, also sold as "Darn Tough" at REI (same great price, or should I say same enormous price).
  • Silk longs.
  • 12VDC vacuum (Important that your DW has a sense of humor. Mine does. In fact, she let me use this on our last trip. In fact, she's never used it - ?)
  • Antique aluminum soap container. She admired mine and I think I found one for her on Etsy or eBay.
  • A stainless steel hook for hanging the bath gear on partitions when they don't have enough hooks in the restroom.
  • Small personal flashlight.
  • Glass cook and store containers with snap-lock gasketed lids.
  • Photo mug.
  • Road Atlas and travel guides.
My wife is the cheerful, optimistic, positive sort. I think I could have declared the tire-link door mat a present too, but I didn't want to try and stretch my luck that far.

I bought two of these as stocking stuffers - but the kids already bought their own !

NIB - 2 – new ORBIT key/phone locators

A free App lets you locate your keys or phone. Also works as a Selfie remote!

https://findorbit.com/orbit_au/orbitkey.html/

One silver & One black. ($39.95 each new + shipping)

Buy BOTH of them for $55.00 + shipping

Great gift ideas.

I once bought my wife a matching rock hammer. That is, mine being large, hers being smaller, same handles. Luckily I did not get it lodged in my forehead.

Another time a pink Swiss Victorinox. How romantic, right? Wrong again.

Chromed Baretta Bobcat with pink handle. Wrong.

So now I stick to romantic DVD's, books, etc.

We do have Luci lights: Just FYI They quit working so on the ones we have I replaced the battery in each and they are good to go. Rechargeable AAA's as I recall.

The had to move the wheel back in order to increase the tongue weight because they store a gross of helium balloons in the front of the trailer.

=========

If your significant other hates the slightest bit of cold, as mine did, electric socks and a king sized hand warmer were much appreciated.

My go-to is a 2 liter hot water bottle in a fleece cover...lasts all night and takes no power other than heating up the water. Works great at home or camping! Just look for 'hot water bottle with cover' on Amazon and you'll see lots of options for cute or plain covers. I prefer the fleece cover over the kit covers...
There are also smaller sized bottles...
