Celti's Wishlist

Specific Items

These are individual items that have caught my desire, in no particular order of preference:

Headphone Accessory Cable
The Shure RMCE-BT2 is an accessory for my headphones that adds a microphone, remote control, and Bluetooth wireless capability to them.
Nintendo Switch Pro Controller
The Nintendo Switch Pro Controller is… a controller for the Nintendo Switch, I'm really not sure what else to say here. Don't be afraid to duplicate this one, the Switch can connect up to eight of them!
A New Smartphone
I'd be happy with any of a few different choices here, though I'm looking specifically at Android One program phones: any of the top-of-the-line Nokia 7.2; its slightly less-impressive sibling the Nokia 6.2; or their more-than-capable cousin, the Motorola One Action.
A New e-Reader
My trusty old Nook is old and decrepit, and these days Barnes & Noble isn't the end-all, be-all of ebooks. No, that's Amazon, but I don't like Amazon, so instead I want to replace it with a Kobo e-reader. Ideally, I'd like the Kobo Forma, but it's little sibling, the Kobo Libra H2O would do nearly as well.

Nintendo Switch Games

External Wishlists

I'm always happy to get anything from my wishlist on Amazon.

Perennial Favourites

Drinks
As always, any beverage you think I might find interesting will be appreciated. In general, I like teas and coffees (both exotic and ordinary); ciders, ginger beers, and root beers (both hard and soft); whisk(e)y, rum, mead, gin, absinthe, and a variety of other spirits, liqueurs, and cordials.
Some specifics include:
The Black Blood of the Earth
Mead
In the interests of honesty, all of my particular favourites are home-brewed. If you think you've found something to match, though, I'm always up for a pleasant surprise!
Whiskey
I'm mostly fond of Irish whiskey, although my ultimate favourite is Penderyn Welsh whisky. Scotch is good if it's not too peaty (definitely no Islay malts for me!).
Liqueurs
Irish Mist is always a solid standby; Drambuie is fine; Bushmills Irish Honey is pretty good; Ballotin chocolate bourbon is strangely incredible. Baileys will be used in coffee in place of cream and sugar, and be gone within days. I like a very wide variety, though — feel free to surprise me!
Absinthe
I'm a sucker for good absinthe. I'd particularly like to try Pacifique Absinthe Verte Supérieure, made and bottled in Washington.
Hard cider
I'm fond of both Woodchuck and Angry Orchard, especially their seasonal or special varietals — I'd be especially grateful for a bottle of each (or just any!) cider in their “Cider House Collection”.
Gift cards
Gift cards will always get spent, of course. If you want something you know I'll particularly enjoy, consider:
  • Warehouse 23 (gaming books and games!)
  • Fry's Electronics (in-store only1)) or Newegg (electronics and other goodies!)
  • Barnes & Noble or Google Play (books and music!)
  • Nintendo or Steam (video games!)
  • World Market (all sorts of fascinating foods, drinks, and various tchotchkes!)
  • Or even just Amazon, a Visa card, or simply cash, as I am perpetually broke.

1) Alas, you'd think the premier electronics store would join the digital age already!
