My recommendations... Tech (noise canceling over ear headphones, airpod or android equiv, Nintendo switch (for once travel resumes), mavic mini, oculus, ergonomic mouse) Travel (better suitcase, weekend bag, dope kit) Grooming (skincare products (you only have one face, better start taking care of it now so you don't look gross 20 years from now)) Other (coffee subscriptions, whiskey/wine subscriptions)

Remarkable?

Ask them to donate to a charity in your name. Do we really need more crap?

Fair, good suggestion - kinda have this covered already but I suppose I could forgo opening a present while everyone else does.

New headphones, kitchen appliances that need upgrades, smart home devices, decor items (refresh or seasonal), monthly subscriptions to products or services- so basically half of the Amazon home page.

Thanks - categories all good...any specific brands/products you’d recommend?
