If you have a birthday or other event that involves gifts coming up, perhaps you could pass some hints to family and pals beforehand. They already know that the latest phone or tablet has your name written all over it, but you probably have several of each by now!
A gift certificate to a bricks-and-mortar or online bookstore would be apt, as would a deluxe assortment of bath and grooming essentials.
Don't want more "stuff?"How about an outing to a place with lots to do, perhaps a fair of the Renaissance, Maker, or techie variety? Anything that feeds your curiosity will do!
