Celti's Wishlist

Specific Items

These are individual items that have caught my desire, in no particular order.

Iced tea jar
A classic sun tea jar (vintage not required). Glass, not plastic please; a spigot would be nice but is by no means required.
Either the Fizzi or the Source, plus as many of the bottles, CO2 cylinders, and flavour syrups as you're willing to tack on (for flavours: Cola, “Fountain Mist”, anything citrus or cranberry).
Cold brew coffee pitcher
Something reasonably large (at least a quart) with a built-in filter basket and decently-sealing lid.
Shure RMCE accessory cable
It's a replacement cable for my headphones that adds a microphone and remote control to them. Either the Bluetooth or wired version would be nice.
New Nintendo 3DS XL
The “new” is part of the model name, not just “I want a new one”. Any colour is fine.
I'm finding myself in need of a new coat with more elegance than a hoodie. I would adore one of these modernised haori in wool and ventile, but I realise that the cost and shipping probably puts that out of reach of anyone I know. A simple canvas duster would be great as well (leather is unfortunately too hot for our climate, no matter how cool it looks).

Perennial Favourites

I'm hard enough on clothes that I'm perpetually in need of new ones.
Lounge-and-sleepwear in soft fabrics with light shirts and long pants. Beyond that, I don't care so much about style if they look cute.
Long– or short-sleeved blouses, button-ups, “sport” shirts, or similar tops (no polos, please!). I prefer fairly loose and draping/“flowy” garments. Between 2XL and 3XL, “tall” sizes preferred. I generally wear neutral or subdued colours, but if it looks cute I'll try something bolder.
Black or grey slacks; again, loose and swishy garments preferred. Roughly a size 21 (42″ waist, 34″ inseam).
Kilts and kilted skirts are both comfortable and fun to wear. UT Kilts makes the best utility kilt I have ever worn, and I would happily wear another in any colour (44″ waist, 241/2″ length — this must be special-ordered, unfortunately).
These knit hose from UT Kilts are absolutely the best socks I have ever worn. They’re cool in the summer, warm even wading through the snow, have enough padding to prevent blisters and just flat-out comfortable. I linked the black ones, but they also have a variety of other colours — I'd be happy with black, grey, cream, or green.
Soft t-shirts of any variety (pocket Ts, long sleeves, &c.), 3XL or 2XL “Tall”. Knit boxers or boxer-briefs, in sizes matching the trousers above. For either, solid colours or subtle patterns, please; preferably dark.
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!
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 Electronics1) or Newegg (electronics and other goodies!)
  • Barnes & Noble or Google Play (books and music!)
  • Or even just Amazon, a Visa card, or simply cash — I am perpetually broke and anything is appreciated.

1) In-store only, alas. You'd think the premier electronics store would join the digital age already!
