This is my canonical birthday, Christmas, and any-other-time wish list. It is up to date as of October 18, 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. Arranged in descending price—but not necessarily any sort of ranked/preference—order.
|Freefly Movi||$299||Referral link|
|Google Home Max||$299*||Chalk/white|
|August Smart Lock Pro + Connect||$279||Fits over our apartment deadbolt|
|62mm CPL Filter||$40–75*||Not picky, but I’ve heard of Gobe and Hoya brands|
|8Bitdo N30 Pro 2||$40||C edition|
|dbrand Skin for XPS 15 (9570)||$25||Top, White Marble|
|8Bitdo Bluetooth Adapter for PS Classic||$20||Supposedly the brown brick one also works so I’d be willing to give it a try|
*Exact price depends on promotions/retailer.
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.
Fun Gauges/Plugs ~$5–20 - 0g/8mm, single- or double-flared. I like almost anything! I have a lot of black, so lighter-colored wood, unique designs, and bright colors would be best. Hot Topic also usually has fun branded ones like Star Wars, DC Comics, Disney, etc.
Hubless Wi-Fi Smart Lighting ~$10–$$$$ - Feit smart bulbs, LIFX bulbs, smart switches, etc. are all very welcome. Ideally every bulb in my home would be smart… maybe someday.
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.
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.
Defending digital privacy, free speech, and innovation.
Helping create a free software computing platform for the general public that is designed to be elegant, efficient, and easy to use.
Closing the gender gap in tech, one girl at a time.
Imagine a world in which every single human being can freely share in the sum of all knowledge.
