What I Like
I certainly don’t expect gifts, at all, for any reason. The appropriate fee is all the material goods I require from you. The things truly needed for mutual pleasure cannot be bought in a store.
However, I know some of you enjoy offering something special. This page is for you, so you know you’re getting a gift that I actually want.
This list will change from time to time. So if you plan on getting a gift, double-check this page to make sure the item hasn’t been removed because I’ll keep this page current.
Just for fun! If you love my Instagram, how about a book of my photos? No kidding! Chatbooks gives me the ability to do this.
If you schedule with me 2.5-3 weeks in advance and let me know whether you want softcover or hardcover, I’ll get a printed book of 20-30 images/captions into your hands when we meet, as my gift to you. (The regular shipping takes 2 full weeks. Expedited shipping is 5 days and +$25, if you wish.) I can select the photos you like best, or let me decide which ones to include. The book is small and the quality is excellent for what it is.
Due to the way the app is configured, only I can create these books (or a hacker, but that’s not an invitation to hack me). Each time we see each other, you can add another book to your collection…if you wish!
I recently found the perfect combination of personal interests and charity. A Richmond-based, vegan food company that supports the incredible Tarahumara native tribes of Mexico. You can buy their Chia bars in Whole Foods. I thank you, and so do the farmers and their families.
If you prefer to donate to an organization that helps families both globally and in the US, ShelterBox USA offers very practical disaster relief, which is clearly needed this hurricane season. Or, help children domestically and internationally, through this reputable NGO, at SaveTheChildren.
On the more prosaic side of things, gift cards to Amazon can get me a lot of things, including gift cards to other places (like Old Navy, Athleta, Whole Foods, Sephora). Or the plastic card (not egiftcard) from American Airlines. Invest in my future with an emailed Stockpile giftcard.
What I Really Like
For now, the only online wishlist I have. This purse is on there, along with other things that interest me (several of those things are bags, a weakness). As far as I know, you can order and I pick up the store. Easy!
Pretty much anywhere interesting and beautiful where I haven’t been before. I’ve been many places but not everywhere. 🙂 For instance, this picture is of the Patagonia mountains.
