"Wishlists are only for December!" "JULY."*

Why should the sharing around of wishlists be restricted to the shopping season for the (heavily Christian-inflected) December festival of Commercialmas?

Write out a list of things you really want. Don't be afraid to include expensive things, and don't be afraid to write an extensive list (to wish is not to be greedy), but don't leave out things that don't cost any money. Then, when you see someone else's wishlist, consider how you might fulfill one of the wisher's requests.

No one is obligated to fill anyone else's wishes, but please do try to make some wishes come true: this is simply a good-cheer effort to increase the kindness and generosity on display in the world.

Happy gifting!

* pun intended :P

I'm going to sort my wishlist by price tag, for reasons. PM me for mailing address if applicable :) but (1) moving here (2) honestly expecting hardly any y'all can afford to look more expensive on the list than "Freeeeee" anyway. I'm also gonna just toss my Paypal here, and also bump my fiction sale.
