This list is mostly for my mom.

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.

Nerdy stuff:
Portal 2 coasters
this geeky, sciencey shirt of awesomeness
Portal companion cube for me to love and squeeze and NOT incinerate
Portal earrings
-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)

Video games:
-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)
-Castlevania: Mirror of Fate (3DS)

Books:
-C. S. Lewis’s Narnia series in one large storybook form, preferrably with gold leaf edging, ribbon bookmark, and hand drawn pictures throughout

Kitchen gadgets:
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)
boots
-flats (take me shopping, I’m picky!)

Other miscellany:
-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
-boxed Blu-ray set of all the 007 movies
-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!
