Default Gift Ideas for quilters/luxury notions?

Is there a quilting supply/notion that you consider a luxury you would love to have? I am looking for ideas for a wish list for gift ideas for quilters. We already have so much but what is one quilting item you wouldn't buy for yourself but would be thrilled to recieve as a present?

specialty rulers? a desired quilt pattern? a quilt themed book or jigsaw puzzle? a new quilting chair? extra super large cutting mat?

One of the Westalee spin rulers for my ruler foot. A luxury item nowadays is Hobbs queen size fusible quilt batt. Wow quilt batt is getting pricey.

For me, a luxury item would be something like the Clearly Perfect Slotted Trimmers. I have rulers that work perfectly well for trimming HSTs but those would be nice.

super luxury: dies for an Accuquilt cutter owner, embroidery or computerized long arm software for someone with those machines, a box of pricey thread, an extension table for their machine

less pricey: LED lights for sewing machine table; nice scissors, one of those no skid pads for their foot pedal; large acid free boxes for storing quilts, a quilt rack, some of the more expensive specialty rulers with book on how to use, a sew of Derwent Inktense color sticks for someone wanting to venture into art quilting, a hand project kit.

Not as pricey but not likely to buy for self except on whim at a show because we've learned how to live without: set of new glass head or easy grip pins, one of those table top cutters for string piecers, a fancy project bag, a sewing notion case for someone that goes to classes/retreats; decals for their machines; quilting jigsaw or book; a poster from a major show like Sisters, QuiltFest.

Wait--I think I'll use this for a Christmas wish list! LOL!

In the term Luxury, do you mean pricey? I’ve been eyeing a light box like the Wafer 2 or Cutterpillar. I like many of the items quiltingshortimer posted too.

I would love gift cards from all the web sites I have shopped from in the past, subscribe to, or browse frequently.

What I consider luxury are specialty quilting rulers in various shapes for ruler quilting.
