I stopped by Wal-Mart and Farm & Fleet last night. (No trailers, I checked... ;-) )

However, I did find some good buys for DGI & GI Christmas gifts:

1. Canned food baskets for DGI relatives. $4.99 - $14.99

2. Fleece blankets. $9.97 each

3. Heavy duty work gloves. - ~$5.00

4. Extra fireplace/coal grate. - $15.99

5. Gardening tools. - $9.99 and up

I just bought 2 down comforters. Last year I gave long johns. I think I'll give sterno stoves this year too. I wish I could afford wood stoves.

A little more expensive, perhaps, but I just bought some water filters (Doulton -- the kind used in the expensive Berkefield filter sets) with little hose attachments for immediate family -- $37 each. You can use these with muddy water to make water cleaner than that which comes out of your tap.

Am sending my buddy a bushekl of grapefruit for Christmas. About $42. It will help to have fresh fruit!

I'm looking to buy online car emergency kits for some DGI relatives in another state. I want it to include medical/food/water/ at least. Anyone know where to buy one? I've been looking online with no success. Thanks!
