Christmas Gift ideas

You can never have enough tools right? Looking for inexpensive $30ish dollar gift ideas from big box stores for myself I need to come up with atleast 4 lists in that range (I have other non tool items but this is the shop section), and I can honestly say I have hit a wall. I always say whatever and get crap so I'm trying to actually use a specific list this year. There has to be others of you that do these grab bags and need ideas too.
Anyone have any real stand out tools in this range? Even amazon.com ideas?

So far I have listed:
29 piece Dewalt TI pilot point drill bit set HD
Gearwrench Quad box metic Lowes
DascoPro 12 piece Punch and chiesel set Lowes

www.Amazon.com has tons of nice tools and you can make separate wish lists even if you want.

- Tape Measures
- Levels
- Clamps
- Consumables... (bits, hole saws, bandsaw blades, etc.)
- Knipex goodies (also @ Lowes over priced)
- Squares/Straight Edges/Etc
- Drill Bits

Really, it's the small tools that make your life easier and you can never have too many of htem
