David and I got headlamps for Christmas and I think it's one of my favorite gifts. It is so nice to be able to go outside after dark (or before sunrise) and be able to see what you're doing without having to hold a flashlight! Having your hands free means you can do chores much easier.
This one I have has an option for the bright yellow light or a soft red light. If you don't have one of these, go get one!
