2020 Wish List

Completely incomplete wishlist for my family. It feels weird to be so selfish. The items listed are in no particular order in terms of wants or needs.

Speaking only for myself, what I’m into right now is cleaning up my house, which involves a lot of repairs and replacements. Plus things like blinds, curtains, bookcases, light fixtures, shelving, etc. I’m also trying to give gardening and landscaping a go. All of this on a budget of $50/month. Despite the number of Dungeons & Dragons items on here, I consider them frivolous and not a high priority (except Curse of Strahd!), unlike home improvement stuff. Items that have been crossed out have already been purchased by me or someone else.

Feel free to go totally off-book here. Beggars can’t be choosers! I have a strong preference for you to shop small and/or shop local. Big businesses will survive COVID-19; small businesses might not.

Bidet
I have a bidet similar to this upstairs and I freaking love it! I wish I had one downstairs which is where I work from home during the pandemic. I’m also intrigued by some of Tushy’s other products. $109 from this place, but we have a $60 from Amazon that works great.

Curse of Strahd Revamped
This is widely recognized as one of the best role-playing games created. This is a special edition that I really really want! $99.99

Ollas
This company spells the name wrong! These are natural clay pots that sit under the ground and the water you fill them with seeps into the soil by the roots of your plants. I’m a lazy waterer so this will help!

Initiative Cards
Dry Erase Initiative Cards
For D&D when we’re allowed to meet in person again. $6.99

Jackbox Party Packs
I have a wishlist of several games and this is just one of them. I can stream Jackbox to my tv and we all play using our phones as controllers. They’re so much fun! Trivia Murder House is my favorite subgame.

I want to focus on growing vegetables for several reasons. More flavor, home-grown, organic, stop relying on supply chain…. I want these tall raised beds for durability and to make it easier on my back.
MSRP: $229

I’d like a Cricut so I can start making journaling stickers to sell on Etsy. They are always on sale somewhere! MSRP: $390.41

Galaxy Quest Frome
A Frome is a “…whole movie condensed into stripes of colors that represent a certain part of the movie in chronological order.” Galaxy Quest is my 4th favorite movie. My dream wish is 60″ x 24″ (largest size) Buff’s bundle. $379.99 on sale (reg. $949.95!)

THE OLDER SON:
Clothes. This man is in desperate need of clothes! Size 34 waist, Large shirt.
Banana Cream Pie vape juice
My Brother, My Brother, and Me merchandise
Chopsticks
Chopstick holders
These very specific Pilot pens

MeUndies
These are literally the most comfortable underwear ever made. Jacob absolutely loves them. I ordered him a 10-pack of boxer briefs, but he could use more – a subscription would be fun for him!

Steam Gift Cards
He loves him some gaming!


THE YOUNGER SON aka THE IMPOSSIBLE CHILD TO BUY FOR BECAUSE HE ONLY PLAYS GAMES WHILE WATCHING YOUTUBERS:
Nintendo Switch Online 12-Month Membership – either Individual or Family, but if he gets family he and his brother can play while at two different houses!

Super Mario 3D All-Stars
I think this is Ben’s top wish. Check with his brother to see if he is getting it for Ben. Physical copy or digital code is fine. $59.88

When he’s not grounded, he spends ALL of his time on electronic devices. This is just an example; anything similar to this is fine.
Turing Tumble
This is a logic puzzle that is also computer coding. I’m very intrigued by this for Ben. 100% chance that Jacob and I will play with it when he’s not here. $69.99

GAMES

We’re a gaming family. We like all types of games, but party games are my favorites. You can see a list of games I own on BoardGameGeek. Here are ones I’d like to add to our collection, even though narrowing it down to my top favorites is like choosing a favorite cat.

Stone Age
Back in the before times, when I’d go to board game meetups, this one is my absolute favorite. $49.99
