Make sure to do your /CSG/ Christmas shopping early! Everything bought after 12 November is at your own risk and a timely delivery is not guaranteed!

You should post the cheapest copy of the communist manifesto
cheapest would be on the internet Dear
Get comfy this Christmas with a sweater that keeps you warm
Don't forget to buy this if you haven't yet
I **DO NOT** recommend putting things in your mouth from China, for example "rainbow and fake blood" pills or other gags such as leds for your teeth
however things to put in your mouth make a great gift to others
^^^ can recommend, these are some seriously good mugs
drinking out of one rn tbh
a good buy
is it reliably leak-proof?
just throw it into the backpack and don't care
the lid i have for it is like a coffee cup lid. so there's no way to close that.
so it's more *at home*, bummer
Or you know, car
You can get a proper lid for 1$
Bottom one doesn't leak, and the magslider still does (just a little bit)
Are those the ones that are actually Yetis?
someone sell me on yeti cups they look so shit
Keep the temperature reasonably long, big sip, look ok
seriously though I'm kinda scared of chinkshit cups
No cancer yet, only depression
cant wait for the eventual /csg/ I just got cancer
I've been consuming chinese plastic goods for years
no cancer yet, only mantits
I'm the anon that messaged the seller and said they removed the branding on the thread and also posted a couple of pics they sent . I have yet to receive mine due to a local postal office issue, but they do seem nice.
Not that it matters, but probably all or most of your cups are made in China.
n-no mine were made at Starbucks that's why they have the logo right
Even the logo is made in China
a great gift for your gun-toting hunter murderers!
Oh shit what's this
are those santa hat good
or at least not completely paper
A flashlight that also has a laser pointer and an UV light (i can confirm the led it has emits UV rays, via the interaction with glow in the dark stuff and a novelty keychain i have that changes its color with the UV rays). It uses a single AA battery, which is "rare" with laser pointers.
You can play with your cat with the laser, buy two and have secret messages with someone, or just have it as a fun back-up light
Also that was an affilate link before you edited it
Ali sure has some weird shenanigans with affiliate links
A simple and cheap USB tester/multimeter. Pretty functional for the price. If you care for your electronics, you might want one: check charging times to disconnect your devices, check the current battery capacity, check how much juice a cable or a device is using.... Stuff like that.
question: what's the csg obsession with flashlights and EEshit among all the small items chinks do best
as an autist with an engineering degree who collected this stuff obsessively as a kid, I barely ever use stuff like this now
its just target audience, some do keep up the hobby when they grow
you are in /g/ thread anyway if you think about it so~~
and as you know age on /g/ varies quite wildly so maybe some people are just in that age when they start collecting stuff too for later use and such
ah i see, i got my first job pretty late so i'm just sitting here buying nail clippers and shit
jesus christ i saw that in lifehacker almost a decadea go
I bought one and love it.
thanks for the rec tho, yeah i probably will
Danboard figure (only Amazon version left) **$3.90**
Danboard figure every version available **$5.50**
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Christmas-Hat-Santa-Claus-Hats-Children-Soft-Woolen-Knitting-With-Ball-for-Kids-Adult-Gifts/32832145493.html 4th picture is most accurate. Cute hat, very comfy, ordered more.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Christmas-Santa-Claus-Hats-With-Snow-Green-Caps-For-Adult-And-Kids-XMAS-Decor-Wholesale-New/32753468336.html Cheap feeling, but not so much that it falls apart at the seams, just not very fancy. I ordered more.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1PC-Christmas-Striped-Clown-Hat-Party-Caps-For-Adult-Children-Christmas-Hat-New-Year-Gift-Christmas/32839253352.html Well made, takes a bit to un-crush it from shipping, but stands up well on its own. On the smaller side, but super neat. Bought more.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Christmas-Party-Santa-Hat-Red-And-White-Cap-for-Santa-Claus-Costume-New-natal-navidad-christmas/32821136896.html Suuuper cheap, and looks it, but quality isn't bad. You'll look kinda like Mickey Mouse as a wizard.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Christmas-Hats-Red-Silver-Green-Tree-With-Star-Christmas-Caps-For-Adult-And-Kids-XMAS-Decor/32827588084.html Quality is good, fits my big-ass head. I bought more. Little star up top is pretty much just flat though, so might flop over.
Work at a retail store. Got one for all the employees at the customer service desk two years back, the whole front-end last year, going for the whole store this year.
https://www.aliexpress.com/item/75cm-Black-plush-hat-White-fur-Adult-Christmas-hat-party-High-Quality-Fur-Xmas-Cap/32858540346.html Pretty good quality. Pretty long. Less of a disappointingly tiny pompom at the end.
Worth noting is that MOST of these aren't going to be super fluffy inside, they're more on the scratchy side and have disappointing pompoms. Usually. I can check specific ones for whatever if anyone actually wants info on one, but that seems like a lot of effort unless someone actually wanted to know. Usually these are more of a wear it for a couple of evenings type things.
We have those SOMEWHERE in the store, we just haven't done all the Christmas resets yet.
So those I'll get at work.
what store do you work at
Just found a Christmas gift for my dad
what a qt reaction
would this count as an affiliate link ?
wait it doesn't work
nope no affiliate tag nor cookie (it needs https:// )
perfect chinkmas gift
I own a couple of these pens and I've bought them for others. Edgy spike aside, they're comfy as fuck and very durable, they also take standard Parker pen refills
@Matthew could you do us a favour and see how hard it is to break something like a beer bottle with it? The degenerates that have just moved into my complex don't break down their rubbish so the recycling bins are always full. Looking for something to break glass with so our inside bin is more space efficient
Just get 2x4 wood plank
Not space efficient or quiet + my recycling bin is a fairly small target
Break glass with a pen?
Yes it has a glass breaking function dear,
@kylemd The breaker tip is plenty hard enough to break glass bottles, but I wouldn't recommend shoving your hand into a bin of glass trying to break it. I personally use the breaker tip more as a scribe to mark measurements and whatnot
i love bolt action pens
@Matthew are those pens reusable in terms of breaking glass? or is it a one time use thing
@sully it's reusable. I suppose if you break 600 windows with it or something eventually the tip won't have as sharp a point on it or something, but they're plenty durable
nice, thanks matt.
what happens if you use it on your skin
@Kimichiboi it will hurt? It's just a very hard pointy thing. Why are so many people questioning the mechanics of a metal pen with a tungsten spike on it? <:blobthinkingeyes:427568214579609601>
@Matthew hope you've got a deal with the seller because I just bought two of those pens
Kek don't smash beer bottles with that pen, they are probably to break car windows so you can escape, beer bottles are made from tougher glass, if you want to smash them, just use gloves and a hammer
For me, its an unloaded staple gun.
There any good chink wallets?
```FUNDS ARE SAFU```
please stop shitpost friend :(
if you want a good regular wallet
I'll send you the link in a moment.
chinky mech pencils?
high quality pref
as secondaries to my rotring
are there any mechanical pencils that are shorter than normal? like around 3" long
Thats like a SAK wallet what the hell
idk I liek it.
It's legit leather too, from a cow.
>beer bottles having tougher glass than a windshield
Its harder to break initially but it breaks all at once beer bottles can chip for a while until it breaks.
Automotive glass is very high tensile which is why they break so easy when hit by hard materials
I don't think beer bottles are
Probably just a thickness thing tbh
are there any chinks that make small minimalist cardholders like this
i dont want a rep
Not channel related
cheap chink earbuds are definitely a great gift to make, everyone seems to be impressed by chink earbuds compared to cheap western ones
Cheap western ones are made in... you guess it
Yeah but they are sold for 4 times the price they would cost if they would have a chink name
$20 Xiaomi Electric Travel Shaver
actualy yes lets dumb this here too
thank jake for the idea
Continuing on that notion
Minimalist "Ridge" Wallet **$8.87** for stainless steel variants **$12** for black carbon fiber
Bought these (1 Pen + 3 Refills)
Only got 3 Refills no pen, 10/10
cheap posters make cheap gifts
also this for harry potter fags
What should I get my dad
a good son
or a chink shaver
A soldering iron
a high quality set of tools
if he has somewhere to use them <:wholesomethonk:373550351082848267>
or anything about secret stashes (for those wines,cognacs,cigars etc if he uses)
if he smokes cigars.. good Humidor is always option
(some of ali humidors are actualy quite legit)
if he generaly smokes get few cigars and https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Acrylic-Humidor-Jar-with-Humidifier-and-Hygrometer-humidor-That-can-Hold-About-22-Cigars/32933082431.html? as starter bag
those jar humidors are decent stuff
and dont break budget that badly
few extra humidifiers to that (costs like sub 1-3 dollars per 1)
(ofc cutters and proper lighter needs to be bought too)
Why do people ask what are good gifts without giving a single bit of information other than gender and approximate age range.
cause ban for personal details ? ":D"
true reason is probly lazyness / not thinkking that far
Hey you don't have to link your dads Facebook account lol
Anyone know any good burr coffee grinders from ali?
also apparently that one ali seller what sold customizable engraved portable humidors does not exist on ali anyway
(by me iirc)
someone actualy got it and said its good
but electric mills can be had from ali for same price point (sub 20)
Imagine the hand crank ones work better, last time I saw a chink electric grinder at a thrift store the teeth were plastic
plastic gears i understand (due they actualy do work if they are well done and measured) but grinding teeths...eww
gonna get one of these for my coffee roasting burger fren
now that I think of it he probably has one already
get the hand crank one
for portable autism
pre-load with shittiest beans you can find ofc
or go to local coffee autist shop
and ask "i want few beans of __everything__ just to fill this"
hmmm he has some $10 walmart one
also handcranks have that psychological effect "i saw more effort to this= so it must be better"
That tabletop model would be a good gift for my sister, if only to piss her off because she always feels obligated to at least pretend to use the shit I give her.
the first electric link looks really nice
heres to hoping its gonna drop on 11.11
speaking of 11.11
it has to be better than a $10 walmart nobrand, right?
Yeah, your friend spunds like a real coffee psud if he uses walmart grinders
Tell him john said that
hes more into the roasting part
