I could make a subtle suggestion for those looking for ideas
A Key Chain as a stocking stuffer?

Sounds nice. I would love to see a photo.

Nothing bought for the trailer, just bought us lots of stuff to go into the new trailer when I get it. Too much to begin to list.

Our 5.0TA delivery date is in September 2017, but we are already picking up stuff for it. A new Kohler faucet, a Kamenstein Perfect Tear paper towel holder, which is a beautiful stainless steel work of art, a Spectrum Euro Wall Mount Spice Rack, an Outland propane fire bowl, and the delivery trucks keep stopping by.

We settled on our Formica and fabric choices. Sunbrella Raven Black for the dinette cushions and Sunbrella Reflex Classic for the valances and two 16"X16" pillows for the dinette, and two smaller pillows. The Formica will be the White Ice Granite, which has black marbling to go with the Raven Black background. As you can tell, my wife loves black. She has fabric for more pillows with black and whit e stripes. Of course, the outside graphics are black with a black belly band, of course. There will be black Fleur de Lis decals on the outside, as well. I predict my credit card will be smoking before she is done!

Merry Christmas everyone! -- JR

Not sure that the oak is an exact match. We were trying to use some points in an expiring rewards program and this seemed good enough!!

I preordered a FLX Trail eBike (with the Touring option) for my Bigfoot. It will go to my new 5.0 TA in September.

Now I have to get a front hitch for my F150, a 1UpUSA super duty bike rack, locks, and ....

With any luck, I'll get the bike before I leave for Quartzsite. Please Santa!

Ours won't be getting anything for Christmas as it is in hibernation now and has gotten probably close to a couple of thousand dollars worth of accessories in the last 18 months. And not to mention all of the tender loving care it gets before it gets tucked in for the winter. Every square inch is gone over and good thing, or my water heater cover might be out on the highway somewhere. Loren

Nice! You're going to love towing with the 2.7L EcoBoost. We went 2WD as well, so we don't have to carry around the heavy transfer case and suspension components, and get slightly better mileage.

Everything!

The Trailer is getting everything for Xmas! And we got The Trailer for ourselves for the next 20 years or so.

Of course many things were bought over time, starting even before we ordered the trailer, just over a year ago. And we knew there'd be things to order after we got it, which there has been.

I have told this to many clients contemplating remodeling or thinking of renovations, and it is a rule that will never fail. Whatever you think it is going to cost, your wrong. It is going to cost more. Loren

I've been keeping a spreadsheet listing all the stuff we got for the trailer, along with cost. Holy Cow! I did not include the 2017 Tundra and canopy, although it was needed to pull the trailer. Dirk said to not count that as we would have been needing to replace his 2000 Tacoma at some point. Just a few years earlier than he had hoped for, though.

And yeah, we knew we'd be spending lots of money on stuff for it, since we were starting off from zero. I think about the only thing in there that wasn't purchased specifically for it (as in, we already had it) is a pair of scissors! Oh, paper towels and toilet paper.

Sold a clock on Etsy, so decided to treat the trailer:

Cat Shelter Jessica's Cats License Plate Holder by listing-store-119020779

Gee, no surprise there, huh? Lots to choose from!

An RV Superbag for our upcoming 21'. Very nice! Especially in comparison to our homemade one for previous trailer.
