Holiday gift ideas?

With the winter holidays rapidly approaching, what would be some things you folks might ask friends and family for, or perhaps something you might be looking at for yourself? I thought this might be a nice topic of conversation around this time of year.

For simplicity's sake, or unless you're going and buying it yourself, let's keep this discussion centered around supplies, equipment, and accessories. Livestock and new tanks are great, but neither is something I would necessarily entrust someone else to pick for me, unless I knew exactly what I wanted. What say you?

I have MTS

For the folks who have not found they really need it yet, a calm and quiet way to let them know where they may be falling short? Some of us know about how quickly a heater that sticks can kill the whole tank but then there are many who have not, So how about getting them a temperature controller to help them avoid that bit of gloom?
The Inkbird is a great place to start and would make me very happy---IF I did not already have one!

AI Primes freshwater leds look rather promising for my 2.5 gallon. The price on the other hand is making me lean more towards the AI Prime HD for my 18 soft coral tank. Id also like to get my hands on an Eheim 2211 for my 2.5 gallon with some short 13mm lily pipes and the nano SS co2 regulator from GLA. Im really looking forward to decking out my 2.5g but so far with whats listed I could finish building my audio workstation PC lol.

So, if you feel like getting me something.....
