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me your address and email via PM/Slack immediately so I don't have to look for it or send someone something that is out of date.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.

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...)
  • ....Caramel M&Ms!!

 

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.

My Amazon Wish List

Also these dice

Gift cards for Amazon or GameStop are good if you want to go that route.

Anything is acceptable, really. I will enjoy whatever you get me.

If you have an idea but need details, ask Kamau/Puffin/VP/Monkey to tease it out of me, and I'll pretend I don't know what they're doing.

Gift Ideas - Ideas and suggestions for gifts I would enjoy
  • Amazon Wish List - Not a comprehensive list of things I want from Amazon as I a) don't window shop on the site and b) forget to add cool stuff when I see it. Good place to get a vibe of my wants.
  • Kitchen Items - Anything small and colorful or fun cooking books and ideas. I enjoy Asian cuisine especially so stuff related to that like cookbooks or specialty stuff is cool.
  • Stamps/Postcards/Envelopes/etc- I write letters and postcards to friends 'cause it's fun surprise to receive mail. Man I have a hard time finding neat stamps for the postcards though.
  • Figurines - Finally starting to decorate/personalize my abode and my office at work now that I'm not wondering where I'll be living/working in a years time. NOT Funko Pop though, I hate those beady eyed things 'cause they all look the same and don't do the characters I love justice.
  • Stroopwafels - I'm almost reluctant to list this because every time I try to buy these they end up being stale, but man do I love them  :<3:  
  • Colorful Clothes - Hot damn if 90% of my geeky shirts and clothes aren't black. Everyone wears black, I don't want to be everyone! P.S. I'm a Large.
  • Socks - I got brightly colored striped socks from a co-worker last year and damn do I love them. Not only are they fun they are comfy. You've become an independent adult when you want socks.
  • Art - Enjoying hanging up more artwork in my apartment.
  • Board Games - Unlikely due to the cost of them but I do enjoy them.

Thematic Suggestions - If you're like I'm gonna buy them a thing*, these would be cool themes for that thing. *cookie cutter or shirt or figurine or book or art or trinket or awesome thing
  • ​Overwatch
  • Steven Universe
  • Gravity Falls
  • Pokémon
  • Monster Hunter
  • Tanks (I was going to say World of Tanks, but I just like tanks in general)

Past Gifts - Recent gifts that I have received and enjoyed so you can see what people get me

Alright, I just updated my wishlist a little bit. So here it is in full glory, my amazon wishlist. https://www.amazon.c...ishlist_lists_1

 

Also, like any movies or video games that you think are amazing, but only favorites. I just feel like if something is good enough to be someones favorite it has to be pretty good right?

 

Um, other than that I don't know. Surprise me with something I would never expect. If you can surprise me with some fiction I haven't read yet I would appreciate that as well. Just, like, I dunno. Anyway, I guess seam gift cards or Amazon gift cards are also good.
