Buy a Gift from my Wish List

I have a wish list at Items there are prioritized and range greatly in price. Some are fun and some are serious. They are all things that would be either helpful or enjoyable to me, and would make a nice gift.

Many cultures have a tradition where students buy a gift for a teacher who has helped them. In this digital age, I often never meet the people that I help. Presenting a gift in-person is often impossible. Consider these wish lists as an attempt to bring the age-old tradition of gift-giving into the modern age.

I would also appreciate any “Demotivator” gift from the web site. Here are my favorites:

Top of my wish-list is a laptop skin. The 12″ (10.25″ x 8″) is a great fit for my current model.

Anything from is good for a laugh, and the world can use more laughter.
