I had to write a post about what I wanted for Christmas since my wife was having a hard time trying to figure out what to get me.  I decided to make a list that not only would I like to have, but other climbers as well.  If you're having trouble thinking of a gift for a climber that you're buying for this year, check out this list, I think it will help!

Always good to get more of: Tape, slings, draws, replacement biners.

Pretty basic: That my friends who like climbing frozen waterfalls always hit good ice.

Exactly!  I could have added so much more to this list, but I know I can only ask for so much!

Its really risky when non-climbers buy gear for you as a gift.  Its really hard to get the right thing for a hobby you don't understand. 

I asked my wife if the scissors that came with the clippers I cut my hair with at home were decent enough for her to use at her business and she just stared at me and asked if the ropes at WalMart were good enough to climb on.  Point taken.

HAH!  My wife has proposed similar situations, that is why I will do a list every year for ease and safety!
