Ever thought about a gift for someone and wondered “What can I get them that they don’t already have?”

I think we’ve all been there at least once.  What DO you get that cyclist/golfer/photographer/musician/hobbyist/amateur/computer geek in your life?  I can speak volumes about all the weird gadgets that exist out there.  I love ’em.

I’ve collected plenty of them over the years.  I have a hot-shoe bubble level, lens filter wrenches, drawers full of all sorts of apple sync/charging cables, firewire and USB cables galore, a full shop of pro cycling tools, cases for this and pouches for that, multiple editing input devices and I even have a larger-than-life mouse from a Christmas party years ago.

The “Mighty mouse”

So if you think there’s nothing left to get that certain someone, think again because companies are always creating stuff that you never knew you needed.


So the new “toy” I just got for Christmas is something I’ve always actually wanted, but never got it for myself.  Rain gear for my camera.  Don’t know why I’ve never invested in it.  I have rain gear for my bags, rain gear for myself, but I’ve never had rain gear for the actual camera.

Cool.  Just cool.
