Cassidy’s Wishlist

This is my canonical birthday, Christmas, and any-other-time wish list. It is up to date as of October 18, 2019.

Skip Amazon

I dislike Amazon since they’re extremely anti-competitive and awful to their workers. So if you can, please purchase any items here somewhere other than Amazon.

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. Arranged in descending price—but not necessarily any sort of ranked/preference—order.

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.


A.k.a. stuff I always enjoy.

Vinyl LPs

Because Katie got a turntable so I need some music… 🙃️


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.
