Get those checklists, gift suggestions and baking recipes and share it for fellow nerds
keep it on topic, keep it clean and simple, and best of it all keep it comfy.
ps.(adult toys go to nsfw-lewds channel)

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!

Last year our moderation team took slightly too much eggnog ~~and brawled with bear~~ ...and accidently deleted the old thread.
we __PROMISE__ that it wont happen this year and this threat will get archived for future reference and ideas.

2018-10-06 13:08:36 UTC

----------------------------Some good ideas if you run out------------------------
some plushies (llamas, sharks)
8bitdo devices
thermos bottles/bento boxes
custom stuff (nameplates,keychains,mousepads,engraved pens,flasks etc)
reflectors,flashlights,tritium keychain lights.
tools for XYZ
socks everybody loves good quality socks (bamboo or merino-wool bitch)
then some suggestions from our moderators

2018-10-06 14:50:58 UTC

**100 pcs bulk natural linen bags (jute gift package) 100 pcs/50 $ starting**
The low effort choice. Fill it with some nuts, mandarins, chocolate and the problem is solved. Great if you have to make gifts to a lot of people

**Mini Drone (US $12.99 - 21.11)**
Children, the quality of the drones is not that high and it's clearly just a toy. You can't fly properly with it (no stabilization at all), so really just as a toy for children

2018-10-06 14:56:46 UTC

**Xiaomi Pen (US $1.98 - 4.29)**
Suggestion for: Basically anyone, it's a really nice, well built, elegant-looking pen

2018-10-06 14:57:28 UTC
2018-10-07 11:19:44 UTC

**Banana protector box (US $1.23)**
Suggestion for: Fun gift, people who like bananas? (Everybody likes bananas)

2018-10-07 18:09:48 UTC

i would NOT buy those usb heated gloves, bought them 2 years ago, the adhesives peeled off and started shocking me

2018-10-07 19:08:45 UTC

didnt stay too warm too, better off just buying thicker gloves

2018-10-07 19:14:59 UTC

You should post the cheapest copy of the communist manifesto

2018-10-07 19:28:22 UTC

cheapest would be on the internet Dear

2018-10-07 19:33:01 UTC

2018-10-07 19:39:22 UTC

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

2018-10-07 21:00:19 UTC

however things to put in your mouth make a great gift to others

2018-10-07 21:02:16 UTC


2018-10-08 05:59:47 UTC

^^^ can recommend, these are some seriously good mugs

2018-10-08 06:07:57 UTC

drinking out of one rn tbh

2018-10-08 06:08:00 UTC

a good buy

2018-10-08 07:23:26 UTC

is it reliably leak-proof?

2018-10-08 07:23:49 UTC

just throw it into the backpack and don't care

2018-10-08 07:24:23 UTC

the lid i have for it is like a coffee cup lid. so there's no way to close that.

2018-10-08 07:26:59 UTC

so it's more *at home*, bummer

2018-10-08 07:27:16 UTC

Or you know, car

2018-10-08 07:42:44 UTC

You can get a proper lid for 1$

2018-10-08 07:43:42 UTC

Bottom one doesn't leak, and the magslider still does (just a little bit)


2018-10-08 08:38:37 UTC

Are those the ones that are actually Yetis?

2018-10-08 09:18:55 UTC


2018-10-08 10:10:48 UTC

@timsandtoms yes but the logos are shopped out of the images

2018-10-08 10:29:45 UTC

someone sell me on yeti cups they look so shit

2018-10-08 10:35:06 UTC

Keep the temperature reasonably long, big sip, look ok

2018-10-08 10:36:58 UTC

seriously though I'm kinda scared of chinkshit cups

2018-10-08 10:40:27 UTC

@Deleted User yetis are fine

2018-10-08 11:19:33 UTC

2018-10-08 18:42:19 UTC

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.

2018-10-08 18:43:42 UTC

Not that it matters, but probably all or most of your cups are made in China.

2018-10-08 18:47:06 UTC

n-no mine were made at Starbucks that's why they have the logo right

2018-10-08 18:52:17 UTC

Even the logo is made in China

2018-10-09 20:32:12 UTC

a great gift for your gun-toting hunter murderers!

2018-10-10 02:39:34 UTC

Oh shit what's this

2018-10-10 03:03:21 UTC

are those santa hat good

2018-10-10 03:03:39 UTC

or at least not completely paper

2018-10-10 07:13:30 UTC

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


2018-10-10 07:15:30 UTC

Also that was an affilate link before you edited it

2018-10-10 07:16:33 UTC

Ali sure has some weird shenanigans with affiliate links

2018-10-10 07:19:31 UTC

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.


2018-10-10 09:22:27 UTC

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

2018-10-10 09:36:08 UTC

its just target audience, some do keep up the hobby when they grow

2018-10-10 09:36:41 UTC

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

2018-10-10 10:26:43 UTC

ah i see, i got my first job pretty late so i'm just sitting here buying nail clippers and shit

2018-10-10 10:40:30 UTC

@miker Buy a Khlip instead. Worth.

2018-10-10 10:41:53 UTC

jesus christ i saw that in lifehacker almost a decadea go

2018-10-10 10:42:11 UTC

I bought one and love it.

2018-10-10 10:43:26 UTC

thanks for the rec tho, yeah i probably will

2018-10-10 11:32:23 UTC

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.

2018-10-10 11:34:36 UTC

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.

2018-10-10 11:36:16 UTC

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.

2018-10-10 11:37:51 UTC

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.

2018-10-10 11:38:04 UTC

@timsandtoms why did you buy so many

2018-10-10 11:38:40 UTC

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.

2018-10-10 11:39:20 UTC


2018-10-10 11:41:00 UTC
2018-10-10 11:42:24 UTC

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.

2018-10-10 11:43:52 UTC

We have those SOMEWHERE in the store, we just haven't done all the Christmas resets yet.

2018-10-10 11:43:59 UTC

So those I'll get at work.

2018-10-10 11:44:06 UTC

what store do you work at

2018-10-10 11:44:10 UTC

2018-10-11 13:32:39 UTC

would this count as an affiliate link ?

2018-10-11 13:32:46 UTC

wait it doesn't work

2018-10-11 13:32:51 UTC

nope no affiliate tag nor cookie (it needs https:// )

2018-10-11 13:34:06 UTC

thank you @foxhunt

2018-10-11 18:28:15 UTC

keychain balls

2018-10-11 18:28:21 UTC

perfect chinkmas gift

2018-10-15 04:32:44 UTC

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

2018-10-15 07:15:30 UTC

@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

2018-10-15 07:56:41 UTC

Just get 2x4 wood plank

2018-10-15 08:09:21 UTC

Not space efficient or quiet + my recycling bin is a fairly small target

2018-10-15 08:18:39 UTC

Break glass with a pen?

2018-10-15 08:18:45 UTC


2018-10-15 10:06:20 UTC

Yes it has a glass breaking function dear,

2018-10-15 12:42:39 UTC

@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

2018-10-17 14:06:48 UTC

i love bolt action pens

2018-10-17 16:42:41 UTC

@Matthew are those pens reusable in terms of breaking glass? or is it a one time use thing

2018-10-17 16:43:48 UTC

@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

2018-10-17 16:46:02 UTC

nice, thanks matt.

2018-10-17 17:00:06 UTC

what happens if you use it on your skin

2018-10-17 17:40:15 UTC


2018-10-17 17:56:40 UTC

@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>

2018-10-17 18:27:13 UTC

@Matthew hope you've got a deal with the seller because I just bought two of those pens

2018-10-17 19:09:22 UTC

@Cole affiliate links are for faggots, enjoy the pens.

2018-10-17 21:04:20 UTC

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

2018-10-17 21:06:40 UTC

For me, its an unloaded staple gun.

2018-10-18 00:32:13 UTC

There any good chink wallets?

2018-10-18 02:28:33 UTC


2018-10-18 02:31:30 UTC

please stop shitpost friend :(

2018-10-18 02:31:52 UTC

if you want a good regular wallet

2018-10-18 02:58:41 UTC

@Bolt yeah, the one I'm using is top stuff.

2018-10-18 02:59:15 UTC

I'll send you the link in a moment.

2018-10-18 02:59:50 UTC

chinky mech pencils?

2018-10-18 03:00:01 UTC

high quality pref

2018-10-18 03:00:37 UTC

as secondaries to my rotring

2018-10-18 03:01:17 UTC

are there any mechanical pencils that are shorter than normal? like around 3" long

2018-10-18 03:01:28 UTC

what why

2018-10-18 03:01:55 UTC

Thats like a SAK wallet what the hell

2018-10-18 03:03:29 UTC

idk I liek it.

2018-10-18 03:04:26 UTC


2018-10-18 03:06:40 UTC

It's legit leather too, from a cow.

2018-10-18 04:13:02 UTC

>beer bottles having tougher glass than a windshield

2018-10-18 04:13:27 UTC


2018-10-18 04:26:58 UTC

Its harder to break initially but it breaks all at once beer bottles can chip for a while until it breaks.

2018-10-18 07:24:51 UTC

Automotive glass is very high tensile which is why they break so easy when hit by hard materials

2018-10-18 07:24:57 UTC

I don't think beer bottles are

2018-10-18 07:48:57 UTC

Probably just a thickness thing tbh

2018-10-18 13:15:38 UTC

are there any chinks that make small minimalist cardholders like this

2018-10-18 13:15:44 UTC


2018-10-18 13:16:09 UTC

i dont want a rep

2018-10-18 17:36:18 UTC

Not channel related

2018-10-18 23:18:06 UTC

cheap chink earbuds are definitely a great gift to make, everyone seems to be impressed by chink earbuds compared to cheap western ones

2018-10-19 00:06:25 UTC

Cheap western ones are made in... you guess it

2018-10-19 08:39:59 UTC

Yeah but they are sold for 4 times the price they would cost if they would have a chink name

2018-10-19 16:46:52 UTC
2018-10-20 21:07:26 UTC

actualy yes lets dumb this here too

What should I get my dad

2018-10-23 09:24:37 UTC

a good son

2018-10-23 09:24:57 UTC

Got 'em

2018-10-23 09:24:57 UTC

or a chink shaver

2018-10-23 09:57:53 UTC

A soldering iron

2018-10-23 09:58:11 UTC

a high quality set of tools

2018-10-23 09:58:36 UTC

if he has somewhere to use them <:wholesomethonk:373550351082848267>

2018-10-23 10:00:07 UTC

or anything about secret stashes (for those wines,cognacs,cigars etc if he uses)

2018-10-23 10:00:49 UTC

if he smokes cigars.. good Humidor is always option

2018-10-23 10:01:04 UTC

(some of ali humidors are actualy quite legit)

2018-10-23 10:02:31 UTC

those jar humidors are decent stuff

2018-10-23 10:02:47 UTC

and dont break budget that badly

2018-10-23 10:03:14 UTC

few extra humidifiers to that (costs like sub 1-3 dollars per 1)

2018-10-23 10:04:03 UTC

(ofc cutters and proper lighter needs to be bought too)

2018-10-23 10:05:37 UTC

Why do people ask what are good gifts without giving a single bit of information other than gender and approximate age range.

2018-10-23 10:06:01 UTC

cause ban for personal details ? ":D"

2018-10-23 10:06:19 UTC

true reason is probly lazyness / not thinkking that far

2018-10-23 10:06:40 UTC

Hey you don't have to link your dads Facebook account lol

2018-10-23 10:07:02 UTC

Anyone know any good burr coffee grinders from ali?

2018-10-23 10:07:29 UTC

also apparently that one ali seller what sold customizable engraved portable humidors does not exist on ali anyway

2018-10-23 10:08:16 UTC

(by me iirc)

2018-10-23 10:08:27 UTC

someone actualy got it and said its good

2018-10-23 10:09:24 UTC

but electric mills can be had from ali for same price point (sub 20)

2018-10-23 10:10:48 UTC

Imagine the hand crank ones work better, last time I saw a chink electric grinder at a thrift store the teeth were plastic

2018-10-23 10:11:49 UTC

plastic gears i understand (due they actualy do work if they are well done and measured) but grinding teeths...eww

2018-10-23 10:13:35 UTC


2018-10-23 10:13:53 UTC

gonna get one of these for my coffee roasting burger fren

2018-10-23 10:13:54 UTC


2018-10-23 10:14:03 UTC

2018-10-23 10:14:10 UTC


2018-10-23 10:14:20 UTC

2018-10-23 10:14:24 UTC
