holiday shopping guide

i did this a few times & decided to re-post it.

not just for the holidays, but for any gift giving occasion.

edwardrhamiliton.com the place for books. some of the books are slightly damaged & if you don't mind that these are good bargains. i've bought from them for years and really like this company. the have the added bonus of having an actual catalog that you can have sent to your home, or one of you're friend's homes. most of their orders ship within 48 hours of them getting your order so i wouldn't do last-minute stuff with them.

sock dreams the place for socks & stockings. i've never used them, but heard many good things. if you, or someone on your list, likes unique socks and/or stockings this is the place to shop.

humon on deviantart (i think she deleted her account) who does scandinavia and the world has some merchandise now. (never got anything from here)

booklender which is like netflix for books. they have various rental plans for 2 to 20 books at a time. take as long as you want to read then & then ship them back. they're all paperback editions, they also have MP3 & CD audio books and children's books. you can even have a combo plan. they usually have a 50% off the first month thing going on, so you use that to try it.

the guy who does rejected princesses has posters for sale, calendars & cards too. and now he has a RP book with a bunch of new entries.

adagio tea sells loose-leaf teas & tea paraphernalia. they have all kinds; black, decaf, green, etc. & even fandom blends! (it's better to search for the one you're interested in, than to look through their list) there could be more than one for what you're interested in. for example; there are a couple for daniel jackson of SG-1, so read the flavor description to see if it's something you might like. they sell sample tins that make about 5 cups (except for some which are 10 or the ice tea, which is 6 pouches that make 40oz), so you can try it before committing to a larger amount.
they even tell you at what temperature & how long to steep the teas for.
make sure you read the whole page for the tea you're interested in, as some are higher in caffeine than others. (never got anything from them)

uncommon goods "If you're on the hunt for quirky, unusual gifts that are guaranteed crowd-pleasers, you've come to the right spot." gifts for men, women (both have subcategories like dad, mom, husband, wife & so on) geeks the home & kids, plus many things can be personalized. never ordered from them.
