But if any of you happen upon it and it results in gift-giving, more power to ya!
You know the drill: my birthday is almost a week away, and then shortly after comes Christmas. Here’s a little help with the “what to get Rachelle?” dilemma.
-Portal 2 coasters
-this geeky, sciencey shirt of awesomeness
-Portal companion cube for me to love and squeeze and NOT incinerate
-Lego!!! (hint: I really like the Sydney opera house or the really big bridge one, if you’re a big spender. Think $300-400 :P)
-several thousand piece puzzle (like 7000-10000 and beyond)
-Super Mario Galaxy 2 (Wii)
-Last Window: The Secret of Cape West (DS) this game probably has to be ordered on eBay from a UK seller.
-Mario & Luigi: Dream Team (3DS)
-The Legend of Zelda: A Link Between Worlds (3DS)
-Tomb Raider (PS3, the newest one)
-Pokémon X (3DS)
-C. S. Lewis’s Narnia series in one large storybook form, preferrably with gold leaf edging, ribbon bookmark, and hand drawn pictures throughout
-a traditional bamboo matcha whisk + spoon and a really nice stone matcha bowl to mix in
-bowls like this (at least 4)
-cast iron skillets that can go in the oven (ie: no wooden handle), a small one (got the big one last year!)
-the classic whistling teakettle by Le Creuset in Carribean blue. The reason being, my gas range heats my current kettle, which doesn’t have a rubber handle, so hot that I can’t touch the handle without burning my hands off. This kettle is really cute and has a rubber handle too!
-really nice salt & pepper grinders (not electric)
Clothing & related items:
-really fuzzy onesie pajamas. With feet. And a butt flap. And maybe a hood. (Hint: there’s a new store in Guildford mall that sells them. And I saw some cute ones at Bluenotes)
-flats (take me shopping, I’m picky!)
-a really nice yet compact easel
-among other pieces that I really love by this artist: this one, this one, and this one. Available on Granville Island or by direct order from the artist
-a portable mini book light/reading light for reading at night or in the dark
-Cards Against Humanity, plus (in?)appropriate expansion packs. I’ll invite you over to play…!
-and if even this list can’t stimulate you to be creative with a gift, I do accept cash, in any denomination, but bigger is always better!
Let the gifting begin!
