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
I've actually got a gaming console for once, now I need the games for it! Ranked roughly order of preference:
I'm always happy to get anything from my wishlist on Amazon.
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
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!
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!).
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!
- 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:
Alas, you'd think the premier electronics store would join the digital age already!
