One of the most-liked PRACTICAL gift ideas we have used are rechargeable headlamps for everyone.  My husband and I use these constantly for 1 checking livestock at night 2 repairing small items on a desk where you need extra light and hands free 3 engine repair 4 reading in bed 5 finding items in a dark closet 6 reading a map 7 putting chickens to bed.... We always take them on trips as emergency gear, a couple in the glove box.  The ones we have have LED bulbs, have a Hi/Lo/strobe setting, and recharge with a common phone USB cord. We have dropped them with no damage and they are water-resistant. These are counted as necessary to take along as our phones, and I'm not sure how we made it without them.  We almost never use common flashlights anymore.  So last Christmas, everyone on our list got a rechargeable headlamp with their other gifts and everyone was happy!

Are they the ones made by Loma Creek (used to be "Veriglow")? We actually had a giveaway of them a while back--which is where I got my first one. I've gotten  I have four of them--they're seriously awesome!

The company that makes them is actually the same company as just did four Hand Weeding Sickles, and also gave away a a big set of all their other tools. We love them!
