You can never have enough tools. If there is nothing you want in particular, ask for tools you dont have.

I'd like either a nice chainsaw, weed-eater, roof for my Yamaha Rhino, or an upper for a 300 blackout. I don't expect the ole lady to spend that much though. I'll settle for a tie, socks, and a box or two of ammunition.

I'll revise my wishlist: Water-pump rebuild kit and thermostat for my outboard. Maybe some nice under armor hunting pants.

Those are nice trucks. I grew up driving my dad's 78 Ford...later on we replaced the 351C with a custom 460. I generally dislike big blocks but it sounded amazing.

I have no real big ticket items this year.  I'd be happy with one of those things you plug into your car it gives you 3 prong standard outlets, a tie rack, and maybe some new shoes.  My mom said she's feeling creative this year so we'll see what fun stuff I get.

I need this. I accidentally purchased a similar shock mount which didn't have the base plate.

I am notorious for the "I don't really want anything" phrase, so my parents will be pleased I am making it so easy for them this year.

Try a nice thick pair of leather and wool welding gloves... Not the thin ones sears has but a nice pair from a welding supply shop ;) you will never go back...

Edit: my mom is having a plate put in her neck a few weeks before so I honestly just want her to recover.

A good meal with the family wouldn't hurt either. I may try my hand at prime rib this year.

Boots are the most important thing. You need them to be snug and form fitting to your foot, but still comfortable. You don't want any "slop" in the side-to-side and twisting motion, but make sure you can still wiggle your toes. Wear whatever socks you'll use for skiing when trying them on.

Bindings are second most important. Spend decent money for decent bindings. The good thing here is that unlike boots, used bindings can be a good deal (used boots are usually trashed on the insides). Get the bindings that fit your style of skiing. Be honest with yourself. If you're a lazy schusser who likes making broad turns and just taking it easy, you don't need the latest LOOK race bindings. Bindings transfer the motions you make with your feet and legs to the planks of wood, metal, and plastic on the snow.

Skis are actually the least important part of the equation. Albeit, still important, the difference in modern skis is very slight from brand to brand. Again, get something that fits your style. You don't need super aggressive shape if you don't carve a lot. You also don't need super long skis if you don't plan on going fast all of the time.

Poles: Cheap poles are just as good as expensive carbon fiber or fiberglass ones. Plus, they're less expensive to replace when you break one on the lift or lose it. With you feet flat on the floor and gripping the poles around their handles, your forearms should be bent upward from the elbow at a 10*-15* angle.

I use Orcas. Silicone textured mitts. You can wash them in the dishwasher if you want, and since they're silicone, they're waterproof.

Yeah I need some ski equipment too. I have to take a gondola to my job in the morning and can ski home or to my second job.

On that note though I'm going cheap. I'll never be skiing hard enough to care how well they fit. Cheap, my size, win.
Que pasa?

Demo equipment is fantastic stuff that can be had for cheap. That's how I always got next-year's skis and bindings this year and for around $300-$500 total

It'll be about the time I'll find out if the Navy likes my application or not. Good news is all I want.
