This is my canonical birthday, Christmas, and any-other-time wish list. It is up to date as of December 7, 2018.
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 (3–7) 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.
|Google Home Hub||$149||Chalk, probably?|
|Moment ND Filter Mount||$40|
|62mm ND Filters||$86 each||3- and 6-stop (stackable)|
|RasPi Camera Module V2||$25|
|Hue White Starter Kit||$60–100*||4 bulbs and bridge|
|Uncharted: The Lost Legacy||$30*||Disc or digital is fine|
|Moment Travel Case||$40|
*Exact price depends on promotions/retailer.
I don’t have specific items picked out here, but I always love receiving a variety of these things. Pick something you think I’ll like!
Moment gear Huge range - Macro and Superfish lens, carrying cases, gimbals, etc. It all looks awesome and I am a Moment fiend. I have a phone case and three lenses (Wide, 58mm Tele, Anamorphic), but not much else.
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.
Gift Cards any amount - I shop at all of these places and always appreciate gift cards.
Board/Card/Party Games ~$10–50 - I love simple and fun games to play with friends, like Exploding Kittens, Codenames, Little Drop of Poison, and Fluxx (all of which Katie and I have). Other ideas:
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.
