My Amazon Books wishlist is up to date. Type in "Elizabeth Barrette" (there were two, last I checked; mine is the central Illinois entry).
Other good bets are things that don't matter if duplicated:
Austrian crystal window prisms, suncatchers, stained glass, ornaments made of mirror bits, other sparklies
Stickers, lasercuts, or paper for scrapbooking
Things that glow in the dark
If you are a writer or artist and your work is not so widely available that I probably have it already, copies are most welcome. I love having things by people I know personally.
If you live far from Illinois, local arts or crafts are a good idea.
Tiny animals carved from semi-precious stone.
One or two 12x12" nonstick cookie sheets or baking trays with a shallow edge. That's the interior size of my oven racks, and the trays that came with are definitely not nonstick.
An oyster knife, which is a bluntish kitchen tool for prying things apart. I want something safe and effective for separating frozen hamburgers and the like.
From Looney Labs:
The Computer individual Fluxx card
Small Pandora's Boxx
Jewelry -- necklaces are probably easiest. I love colored semi-precious gemstones, Celtic knotwork, and Pagan motifs. Also I am eagerly awaiting the collaborative jewelry that's supposed to appear for TalysMana.
EDIT 12/14/09: First TalysMana artifact is the viewer.
EDIT 12/15/09: Argh! Now this is limited edition version. Might or might not have an open edition later.
From the Particle Zoo, so far I have Dark Matter and I am most interested in adding a Strange Quark, a Tachyon, and a Photon.
If you really want to spoil me, I covet some Cutco kitchen tools. (These are expensive five-star tools.) In order of preference, I want the ice cream scoop, the vegetable peeler, the 2 3/4" paring knife, and the 4" paring knife. The peeler and paring knives are actually available as a "Deluxe Peel n' Pare Pack" which would be beyond awesome. I would prefer the pearl handle color, but classic is fine if that's what you can find.
I think homemade gifts are cool.
I think gift cards are cool. (Favorite bookstores include Borders and Barnes & Noble. Favorite craft stores are Michael's and Hobby Lobby.)
I strongly prefer paper books to electronic books, but will resort to reading ebooks if something really cool lacks a hardcopy edition.
My t-shirt size is Large.
My favorite color is blue, but I like most bright colors, and black. I hate pink.
