Xmas Presents for Crew, Any ideas?

I want to get my racing crew a small Christmas present such as the Gill Harness Rescue Tool, a fleece cap with the boat logo embroidered, or the Sail Trim and Rig Tuning: A Captain's Quick Guide by Bill Gladstone. Our racing program is small time but I'd like to know that I remember them and appreciate their commitment. Any other thoughts would be appreciated.

Rigging knives are always useful, and don't have to be overly expensive.

I think boat swag like embroidered shirts or hats. That way you give your crew a nice gift, AND your boat looks cool because your crew now has matching "uniforms"!

Thanks for your help. I've gone ahead with the embroidered fleece toboggan hats. Who knows, if I'm feeling flush the crew may end up with the the Bill Gladstone Sail Trim and Rig Tuning Guide, too.

Each of our PFD's are outfitted with a ACR hemilight2 (Water-activated LED flashing survival light) and I have enough flashlights aboard so i think we've got the bases covered regarding lights. The Led Spot Light by Life Gear does look like a good value, however. I'll check it out at Walmart.
