This is my canonical birthday, Christmas, and any-other-time wish list. It is up to date as of January 21, 2019.
Buying from the company who makes the thing is usually best, but I also recommend the following stores as they seem well-designed and reliable:
A small number of things I’d absolutely love to get. You can use it as a surefire way to get me something I’ll love, or as inspiration for getting me something else.

A.k.a. stuff i always enjoy.
Smart Lighting ~$10–$$$$ - Wemo outlets and switches, IKEA TRÅDFRI bulbs, Hue bulbs, etc. are all very welcome. Ideally every bulb in my home would be smart… maybe someday.
Wikimedia clothing $18–40 - Anything there! I like all the designs and I like supporting Wikimedia.
Star Wars Blu-ray + Digital ~$20–30 each - I have Episodes I–VII. I do not have Episode VIII: The Last Jedi, Rogue One, or Solo.
Harry & David Pears ~$30 - Pears are the BEST.
Fun Gauges/Plugs ~$5–20 - 2g/6mm, single- or double-flared. I like almost anything! I have a lot of black/dark wood, so lighter wood, unique designs, and bright colors would be best. Hot Topic also usually has fun branded ones like Star Wars, DC Comics, Disney, etc.
Threadless Tees and Tanks ~$10–30 - Men’s Large. Anything nerdy or fun or cool.
Short-sleeve tri-blend tees ~$9-20 - Men’s Large. Some sort of oatmeal color, anything heather, or any bright/saturated colors. Crew or v-neck. Generally I like bright colors, plain or simple patterns, and buttonless/pocket-less. Old Navy is a good bet, but basically any place with men’s clothes works.
MKBHD tees - Basically anything you think looks cool or that I would like. Men’s large.
I have a LEGO wishlist at Brickset. It’s usually kept up to date, especially around Christmas and my birthday. As a general rule, duplicates are fine and all Star Wars ships are awesome.
Instead of getting me stuff, you can gift me with one of these experiences or subscriptions.
Instead of giving to me directly, you can always give to one of these causes on my behalf. I’m passionate about each one and they all could use monetary support.
