^^^ That has its problems too, unless you're careful and are really specific about the title and author. I once asked for any book in the Redwall
series, only to get three books I already had. Kinda depressing, especially when I realized the one I thought
was a new one just turned out to have a different cover.
I'd say either synthesizer software/tools so I could make the soundtracks to my books, a tablet with a basic "How to Draw" type book so I can illustrate, or simply a new tower PC with a copy of Word.
I thought about getting a new tablet, actually. Unfortunately, all the artist-quality ones start at about $200, which is definitely out of the price range.
Ask her what she wants. Writers don't always want writing things for Christmas.
Well, OK! :D
*walks into time machine, goes back two hours, and walks back into room*
Me: Hey, Dec, what do you want?
Me: For Christmas. What do you want for Christmas?
Dec: Wait, we're actually getting presents this year?
Dec: …And you want to know what I want, like, a week before?
Dec: …I dunno, ask me later.
And then I made this thread, all temporal-paradox like.
