Christmas is 40 days away. If, like me, most of your friends and family have moved to the other side of the world for the sole purpose of avoiding you, you'll need to start ordering gifts soon. Let's be community-minded about this commercial, empty horror of an occasion.

I love that we share cool stuff with each other and I get a whole bunch of things based on what you suggest. What stuff have you acquired or gifted in the past year or so and would recommend? Ideally with a brief explanation of the kind of person who might enjoy it.
