My birthday is in November. Sometimes, my friends and family ask what’s on my wishlist. I used to have an Amazon.com wishlist, then an Amazon.co.uk wishlist, and now I choose not to use Amazon at all so I’ve put my wishlist up here instead. In no particular order, here are a few things that I would really like to receive as a gift:

  • Scuba diving boots and fins. These look like they might be good? I probably wear a size 4.
  • A rash vest, also for scuba diving, perhaps something like this)
  • A new prescription mask. For diving. (Notice a trend here?) The Cressi Big Eyes Evo looks pretty good and they offer corrective lenses. You should email me to ask how bad my eyesight is before buying this for me though. 🤓
  • Nikon Coolpix W300 digital waterproof camera, because the Wirecutter says this is a good camera for… you guessed it, scuba diving.
  • I like this nice bowl, and a lot of other pretty stuff on this site
  • Coffee from Ritual roasters in California. I like bright, fruity coffees from Africa and when I brought some of this coffee back after my last visit to see my family I was very, very sad when it inevitably ran out.
  • A National Art Pass
  • A gift voucher to the shop where I buy gym clothes
  • A gift voucher to the shop where I buy most of my other clothes
  • A wine chiller of any sort really, but this Le Creuset one looks like it’s good for a small flat and effective at chilling.
  • I like the idea of a book subscription
  • Practice locks so I can work on my lockpicking skills
  • A membership to the Barbican
  • A baking class from the makers of my favourite sourdough bread
  • La Croix. My favourite flavour is pamplemousse, but I like a lot of the other ones too, like peach/pear and lime.
  • An extremely large quantity of my Dad’s homemade Chex mix. I would also accept, if you are not my dad, a shipment of all of the ingredients necessary to prepare it myself. Some of these things are really difficult to find in London, and schlepping them all home is enough of a pain in the ass that I haven’t bothered to make any at home since moving to England.
