I don’t like Amazon, so here’s my equivalent of their super wish list feature šŸ™‚ I alsoĀ believe that giftsĀ should be useful (or delicious) and know that people prefer giving gifts they know will be loved.

This is my long-term shopping list.

  • AnĀ ArduinoĀ or 6. Life needsĀ automating!
  • A book with both magicians and space ships.
  • Batteries to bring my UPS to live
  • A Segway. Who doesn’t want one?
  • A small and reliable portable phone-recharging battery. Something like this.
  • Books like this oneĀ or this one. Or these ones:
    • 7 habbits of highly motivted People
    • Anything by R Scott Baker
    • The Martian
    • Phillip Pullman – Dark Trilogies
    • A million years in a day
    • No Impact Man
    • The Unreconstructed M
    • Orthogonal by Greg Egan
  • Donations to animal friendly charitiesĀ orĀ great little charities
  • A FairPhone, I can dream. Or any second-hand iPhoneĀ 6 or later. Sorry Android, I love you really.
  • Terry Pratchett books I’ve not read (good luck figuring that one out!)
  • Fantasy Books
  • Bike locks and helmets are always handy, a gel saddle to keep my bum dry.
  • A small, catnip plant for indoors would be awesome (if it’s not a bad idea).
  • Membership to things which make the world a better place, likeĀ LCC orĀ Ethical Consumer.
  • This is the wallet I love. Well in the dark green colour but that doesn’t seem available. I lost my one šŸ™

If in doubt, you can’t go wrong with a kitchen utensil. They’re all amazing, every one of them. Except the useless ones.
