What's on your Christmas List? Tokens of Love: Given & Desired.

So I'm curious to know what's on folks Christmas lists. Both in terms of desirous gifts you're holding your breath in hopeful anticipation of getting. Along with unique, & wonderful ones that you're giving.
I'll start with a few that are both:

- A decadently snuggly, cozy wool scarf (maybe partially Angora?). Super thick, & irresistable to touch. Eye catching yet subdued.

- A trick, nautical "rigger's bracelet".

And here --> Salti 3rd Wave Nautical Bracelets | APS

- And for an off the scale, as I've really, really been good, decadent type gift. An NKE Instruments suite, complete with 2 linked in auto pilots. Inclusive of spares nke INSTRUMENTS¬*-¬*nke marine electronics

Dream Big. Give Bigger... from the heart, of course. Hey, that's what it's all about, right?

Re: What's on your Christmas List? Tokens of Love: Given & Desired.

Exciting time! Not just because it's Xmas, but going to visit the parents means as a wandering liveaboard I actually have an address to send ebay/amazon stuff to.

So hopefully awaiting will be...

Various Wago Connectors - great onboard
Really Loud industrial Kitchen timer for single handing
Couple of frictionless rings to replace the toe smashing staysail sheet blocks on the deck
More aa & aaa eneloop rechargeable batteries. - they de best
Strip of 5050 leds

Not really been a very good boy all year but still confident santa will come

In return will be a selection of Portuguese arty stuff

Nothing under our Christmas tree, but we're giving each other (March arrival) a new 82 foot aluminum dock.

I just bought Island Drifter a new tiller pilot, standard horizon hx300 vhf, a delorme 'in reach se' communicator and fresh bottom paint. She's going to be so surprised on Christmas.

Single handers have weird Christmases.

My steering pedestal base had corroded beyond repair. Santa delivered my replacement a little early.....

Re: What's on your Christmas List? Tokens of Love: Given & Desired.

Well, if I am lucky, Santa will pay my drydock fees! LOL!!

We are moving to a new city, and hopefully I will find work there for Christmas/New Years. Also, if lucky, we will be able to get some sort of additional work done on Equinox, such as repairing that mast step, though that is increasingly dependent upon getting additional work otherwise!

Am considering making a new launch for the Admiral, a stitch and glue tender, something with a small sail that she can use to fish from and also that we can use as a tender in reality. I have the epoxy, just need to get the ply and get to stitching. If we can manage these things, it will be more than pleasant for us. We are not terribly needy in terms of what will make us happy sailors...
