    I'm hoping Santa will bring me an EDC pump and toolset with matching steerer tube tap.

    I think I’m going to make gifts this year as I have done a few times in the past and avoid the gift card route.

    These were a hit with my mom, grandparents and aunts a few years ago.

    I was talking about a short travel XC or full rigid racy type MTB this morning and Jennifer says she's been working a lot of overtime and Christmas is coming up. What are you looking at? Ain't she the best?!

    That time of the year already, Christmas shopping. I always say I dread it, so I always make sure my head is waaay right before going out, I end up having a great time! I never get what I ask for so I don't ask.

    My daughter's boots have duct tape holding the sole on, and she wraps the upper clasps every ride. I said punkin you need new boots. She replied that they were brand new. I almost shed a tear, apple doesn't fall far from the tree. These might be Birthday boots, she was a Christmas baby. YES the backdrop was intentional. thumbnail.jpg

    I boycott Christmas, so it's easy for me :sneaky:

    I usually work, then have small family dinner gathering with my mom.

    I can see why they went over big. Of course they are beautiful, but they are from your mind and hands. No more generous and thoughtful a gift than that. Purchasing pales. Well done!

    The only rival to a crafted gift might be an experience. Great memories make awesome gifts.

    No thingamajigs, please. I have everything I could ever want. More dirt, rock and sky has me covered :cool:

    Christmas was my favorite holiday until I started working at UPS. About this time every year I start to dread it. Of course if it involves me getting a new mountain bike then I'm all in! :p:D
