Already have everything on Oprah’s list? Here is my list of gift suggestions:
Halcyonâ€™s Favorite Things:
â€¢ Etsy.com – Nothing wrong with consumerism. But when possible, buy non-corporate. Support artists.
â€¢ Contigo water bottles. Don’t get me started. I love these water bottles.
â€¢ “Love more. Fear Less” The Book!
â€¢ Spreadshirt, CafePress, Zazzle – Instead of a designer logo, why not design a custom shirt with an inside joke catch phrase!?
â€¢ custom laptop sticker. Take a favorite memory (I like to use images from Burning Man) and make your laptop a conversation starter.
â€¢ Super Hero Outfits!
â€¢ donation to charity of choice. â€“ Heifer.org, 1stSaturdays.org, etc. (It’s what Grandpa did.)
â€¢ Custom Coupon Books. (I still have a backrub to cash in from 1987)
â€¢ External Hard drive & backup your loved one’s data â€“ I have several Iomega 2TB drives. Or try an online backup service if you have less video files.
â€¢ Sharpie Pens, Uniball pens, watercolor paper, or anything else that sparks creativity..
â€¢ Books or MP3s for growth (here’s my list of recommendations)
