This will be even secreter than last year.

 

Guidelines:
  • Sign up by November 17th. We'll pick people on the 18th or 19th (matters on when I'm home).
  • Just get someone a nice gift, the thought is what counts.
  • Send out your item by 12/15. It's best if you send out your item as early as possible so everyone gets their presents before Christmas.
  • Write up what you want or what you like before the 17th in this topic.
  • Send me your address and email via PM/Slack immediately so I don't have to look for it or send someone something that is out of date. Do this immediately please and thank you. Even if I have all your information from last year.
  • Tell me if you are already going to get a gift for a member who is signed up/might sign up so you don't get picked together.

You know Slack is for computers too, right?

Ahhh the annual "what do I want for Christmas??" dilemma

 

Random ideas as I think of them:

  • cool, sturdy water bottle (I keep dropping mine and breaking them...). I'm interested in one that fits comfortably in my cup holder while simultaneously being interested in one that tracks how much water I've drank. I have no idea if such a thing exists that fits both together. 
  • Tomb Raider comic books 
  • Similarly, here's an Amazon list of some other book ideas
  • Jigsaw puzzles (500 pieces is the perfect amount, but if the design is cool enough, anything 500+ works!) 
  • I collect cool mugs! 
  • I'm also pretty into Star Wars
  • If edible, just no nuts please! (Unless it's a Take 5 bar...)

 

If nothing else, gift cards to Amazon, Target, or Best Buy will always work!

I'm still doing this, btw, Monkey- just since I noticed I'm not on the list. :/

 

For a wishlist:

Can you tell I'm super in water color lately??

 

Gift cards for amazon are cool, too (if finding/ordering art supplies is too complicated and confusing, this is a great option) and I also appreciate flavored black tea.

OK, for me.

 

Uh...

 

Some easy, generic options if you are not feeling creative (but are still perfectly acceptable options, really):

 

Steam Gift Cards

Amazon Gift Cards

Google Play Gift Cards

Nintendo E-Shop gift cards

 

Some easy, slightly less generic options:

 

Steam Wish list, for best use wait until steam sale: http://steamcommunit...nomad/wishlist/

Amazon Wish List (Currently ain't nuthin' but books, I have a kindle, so kindle or physical versions are fine): http://a.co/j25wsT3

 

My usual suggestions, for great justice:

 

Nerdy T-Shirts (Size XL, I guess, since large is way too inconsistent in t-shirts)

Any old DS or 3DS games that you don't want anymore. Not sure what I have or don't have? Ask Spaz, she can help you stealthily figure it out.

Whole-Bean coffee from any local roasters that you may like

 

Some new ideas for this year, but just suggestions:

Browse the "gift center" areas of hardware stores like Home Depot or Lowes, and see if you can find interesting or useful tools that you think I might not have (I have all of the basics)

Any Legend of Zelda trinkets or toys

A Nintendo Switch

A New Steam Controller, if they go on sale

One of these, if the price goes down (otherwise, don't spend that much on me, plz): https://mnpctech.com...tom-window.html

 

That should cover it. I'm easy to please.

The universe is a cruel, uncaring void. The key to being happy isn't a search for meaning. It's to just keep yourself busy with unimportant nonsense, and eventually, you'll be dead.

You can ask Bee on Facebook in case you're not sure about what to get me or if I have something already.

 

My wish list:

  • I like really weird and obscure board games. I have a ton though.
  • Old DS games are cool. I have been trying to pick games up.
  • In general. I love RPGs.
  • I like Final Fantasy (particularly VI and IX), Persona, Studio Ghibli, Nintendo, Simpsons, Decemberists, Chrono Trigger, Megaman, Zelda...
  • I like toys.
  • Stuff for Celes.
  • I travel a lot now. I think I have a decent amount of travel stuff, but if there's something amazing I may not have that would be cool.
  • I would use gift cards to Amazon, Target, Google Play, Apple App Store, Costco, eShop, PSN, Steam, Best Buy.
  • Here's my Amazon Wishlist I don't really maintain (idk if you can see my other lists, but they're not relevant because I moved everything into that one huge list). 
  • Food and clothes would be good. I use both those things.
  • In general, I'll be happy with anything.
