What are you getting your pops?


At a loss this year. He has more than enough multitools / knives. He's retired and lives in the middle of no where (about 2 hours east of Redding, CA). He apparently got me a bunch of stuff, including a $250 VIAIR Air Compressor (it came in the box so I can see what it was). Typically he gets me pretty useless stuff or just gives me something he doesn't want. So I don't feel bad about just giving him whatever, but since he's gone all out this year I feel compelled to do a bit better.

I make Christmas calendars every year with pics of my kids. He and his wife get one. The kids and I also chipped in and got them one of those monthly gift services. Each month they will get a random food associated gift. First month is a salsa, next month is a dinner, month after that is a cheese, etc.

Bought him a handmade Takamura Santoku kitchen knife and a ceramic honing rod. He doesn’t have a really nice kitchen knife so we thought we’d treat him this year.
 
Shoes. He and his longtime girlfriend started walking a lot recently (I'm guessing she literally dragged him out of the house). He always wears the shittiest, cheapest Payless brand shoes and his feet are fucked up from them, plus he's like a 9 3E/4E basically walks around on square box feet.
Found some really nice Nike's in a wide fit and stretchy, also all black, for some reason he only wears all black shoes.

velour dashmat for his car.
He had one on his MPV years ago and always talked about how much he liked it.
Finally ordered one for his Forester.

Traction boards for when they go out in their Rubicon.
They just did the Mojave Trail (140mi off-road)

Last year I got him a Pendleton shirt.
These are good and you get a new salami every month.

Nothing. He's dead. And we didn't speak the last 16 years of his life, so I wouldn't have gotten anything if he were still alive anyway. He was a huge asshole.

My Dad bought a Cayenne this year but hasn’t had a chance to drive it much. Any recommendations from Porsche crew?

Otherwise I also have no idea
