Presents for cyclist at Christmas???Not an ad

So as a cyclist what will your nearest & dearest buy you.  My partner has got me Butt Cream - who said romance is dead?  Let us all know what odd things people have bought you "thinking this is just what a cyclist needs" I even got talc powder years ago from my Gran, to put inside the inner tube. Apparently stops air bleeding through the tube!!! :confuse:

Thoughtful gift but that's not what it's used for.  

You dust talc on the OUTSIDE of the tube and inside of the tire to keep them from sticking together and to make installation on the rim easier.
