My wife got me a new snowboard (and I quickly updated my bindings and helmet to go with. Got only two days in, and am back in Cali praying for rain, I mean snow. I also scored from the kindness of friends, some fine wool Filson shirts, that could make it on a BP trip some day, but will likely look more at home around town (you know hard to pair with neon, sale priced wind pants/jackets. I also got a tiny thumb operated pepper mill, which might actually make it out on shorter trips where whole birds or T-bones tag along. Not sure, but I know my mother-in-law was thinking of my BP pursuits when she put it in my stocking.
More importantly, and all-in-all everyone had a great year and remain blessed with health, family, and companionship. We are/feel very lucky and grateful.
