As always any gift is appreciated, however I do have some allergies

So please nothing cintaining, or which has had, alcohol in its making

Kindly request nothing too large to fit in a suitcase, being resident in the Finnish lands makes it tricky to bring larger items home.

That being said, I Adore chilly chocolate and some very kind person got me purpel mittens last year. Also love hand crafted items.

But aside form the no alcohol request, anything is lovely.

As whoever is hogfathering me will have to post it, anything small would be best :)
Nothing larger than a normal sized book, from a friendly local - or even a disreputable tax-dodging - bookseller, would be fine :D
At the moment I'm doing a lot of research into;
Napoleonic era espionage
Victorian police methods
Pre-WWI army training
Victorian horror stories/penny dreadfuls
(all for a potential large murder mystery event)
So anything at all in that vein would be greatly appreciated
But as always, it's the thought that counts, so I will be very happy with whatever I get 8-)

Always happy to have any surprise! But here are some ideas:

If you're in England, some Jelly Babies and Kinder Bueno bars would be tops; it may not seem like much but you just can't get them here.

Otherwise, things I like are:
Dark Chocolate
Dragon stuff
Witchy stuff
Bookmarks or bookends
Firefly/Serenity schwag
Easy/basic violin music
And of course any Discworldly stuff :D
Outmaneuvered on all counts, I opt to change the rules.

Dear Hogfather,
I like
DW stamps again (yes, alright I know I've been fickle about it)
Unusual sweets that are not available here in Aussie land
Dr Who
Making stuff- craft books or supplies are good

It's may not a good idea to send
Chocolate (I love milk and white but we are getting to summer here and it doesn't travel terribly well on those 35+C days). Basically, if it does have any chocolatey goodness, a heads up to let me know to throw in in the fridge on arrival is a good idea.

It's not a good idea to send
Untreated plant matter- seeds, unpainted/varnished wood (quarantine issues)- commercially prepared stuff is usually OK though
Girly stuff- lotions, perfumes, bath bombs etc. I don't use them (or can't- no bath)
Pink (blech)
Novels- I have a pile of dead tree books that have been sitting unread for 5 years since I got an ereader

But otherwise usual, disclaimer of surprises are always good*

*well mostly good
The Geeky Goblin My irregular crafting inspirations

Dear Hogfather,

I love handmade thingummies and whatnots, especially if Discworld related.
Discworld ephemera, including stamps and covers, are always welcome, too.
Treat-wise, if you have access to Eccles cakes, those would make me deliriously happy!

Though I will, of course, be grateful for anything (it truly being the thought that counts), I would probably end up re-gifting the following items:
Contemporary fiction
The vast majority of modern "music"
Anything that smells of patchouli
Things with mint or nuts in

Gods bless us every one!

Dear Secret Hogfather:

I love Discworld stampy things, if in doubt an LBE is always welcome :D
Other DW swag (though I have most things from #41).
Anything having to do with mollusks, particularly oysters :wink:

Actually . . . it's probably easier to say really only 2 dislikes - alcohol and coffee - otherwise happy to receive anything. :sunny:
