Default Gift ideas - from homebrewer to a homebrewer

I'm a home-brewer - obviously since I'm on here. My girlfriend's father is also a home-brewer. He's been brewing for years and pretty much has every gadget you could think of and them some I didn't even know existed.

What can I get him for christmas?

I don't want to get him a gift-certificate to the LHBS or pint glasses (he seems to get those every year from at least 1 person) Last year I designed a logo for his brewery and made a t-shirt with it on it. He thought it was the bee's knees since it was something he never got before in all the years he's been brewing.

What can I get him? I've been thinking for about 2 months now and nothing comes to mind.

Maybe some sweet swag with his logo on it. A growler, Pint glasses, ink printed bombers.

how about some of your homebrew? I usually make up a batch I give out for presents at Christmas. Last year it was cider. This year its a RIS.

I like the book "Froth" by mark denney. its the science of beer, even though as far as brewing goes, hes rather careless (pitching before letting the wort cool enough). But its a real fun read on brewing. Maybe that could be a part of the gift or something. not a huge book, so possible stocking stuffer.

Subscription to a beer of the month club.

Kits or actual bottles of beer.

I like this. Come up with a brand new recipe for his favorite style and give it a fun name. Design a label using the logo and then get all the ingredients so you can brew it together.

Is he a member of the AHA? Does he subscribe to BYO? A membership or subscription would be good too.

The coolest, most worthless invention yet - but on my Christmas list
