It feels a little weird to have a page soliciting gifts, but I get asked for gift ideas often enough that I thought this would save time. So, if you want to get me a gift, here are some things I would like:

  1. Consider signing up at and making a $25 loan in my honor, then tell me about it. If you aren't familiar with Kiva, please check out my Kiva page.
  2. If you don't want to deal with that, they sell Kiva cards in $25 increments that you can give to me and I'll make the loan.
  3. Make me something. My favorite types of gift to receive are ones that someone put a lot of thought into or ones that I will get a lot of use out of. Bonus points for meeting both criteria.
  4. Lastly, if you insist on buying me a thing, I have several wishlists from which to choose.
