Stocking Stuffers for Christmas

Okay as we get closer to Christmas, as usual, I'm experiencing "buyers block" for what to get my wife. As we age we have been trying to declutter so big ticket presents are agreed upon beforehand and are purchased for mutual need. We do still buy each other small stocking stuffer type "fun" presents. Does anyone out there have any great ideas? I'd like to limit it to ideas to enhance "the camping experience". Is there anything that you have seen, purchased, or given as a gift that went over particularly well? Befuddled in the Northwest!

Luci Lights seem to be a good gift. They are solar recharged bright lights. I use one whether plugged in or not in my Casita bathroom. Kids like them, adults like them and they are under $20.

When you camp do you have "your" duties and "her" duties? IF so, create a coupon book where you do "her" duties. Like... one coupon good for making the bed.., from putting the linens on, making it in the morning and stripping it at the end of the camping trip. Another for a total meal, including planning, fixing, serving and clean-up... all of it.

Trust me, pampering is wonderful!

Never heard of them. Is the solar panel connected to the light or do you run a wire outside? Sounds interesting.

LOL sounds good but apparently I'm pretty whipped. I cook, I clean, I drive, I set up. I take down. It probably has a lot to do with my micromanagement style learned from many years as a teacher.

On the Luci Lights, a lot of stores sell them. I have found them at kind of hardware/sporting goods stores. I first found them at Sunbirds in Chehalis and now find them at North 40 stores here on the dry side. I'm sure they are easily found on line too.

They are very lightweight, no solar hookups--you put the light outside with the solar cells in the sun. I think I've gotten almost 12 hours or so off one charge. The light was still going when I put it in the sun to recharge.

They come squished up like a concertina and you blow them up. You can let the air out when needed for storing the light. Because of them being so lightweight and inflatable, you can drop them and there is not much chance of damage. I've used them a lot so can vouch for that.

Want to put some spice into your relationship? How about magnetic spice tins? I know, pretty romantic.

Search and you'll find maybe a dozen small metal tins with transparent lids that twist off. They come with labels for most spices and some for you to write on. Magnets on their bases let them stick to a metal sheet you can attach on a vertical surface in or outside a cupboard. I use them constantly at home, too.

Here's a basic set. But look around.

If you enjoy playing cards or board games I suggest Sequence, Backgammon, and a couple decks of cards with a book of card games.

A nice pair of heavy socks to keep the feet warm on the cold trailer floor. Red is nice for Christmas

:forget all that just pay up at the end of the camping trip. My wife's birthday falls on the 12/28 so I just give here a healthy sum of money, I do not buy her a Christmas Gift when she likes to see what her birthday brings then she can go and shop the sales.

Some libraries have printers and check out makerspaces in your area.

They got that wheel on the trailer too far to the back....
