Now is the time of year when most of us are asked by loved ones “What do you want for X holiday?” Just to add to the anxiety of our staffers, we decided to ask them that question as well—what are the things Ars staffers would most like to receive this holiday season?
But the question was phrased with intention. We were curious not what staffers expect to receive this season, but instead what they’d be most giddy to unwrap during the holidays. We knew that doing so would get us a lot of interesting answers, and our staffers didn’t disappoint. Responses ran the gamut of tangible and intangible desirables, some of which are truly shoot-for-the-stars gifts and at least one that doesn’t cost any money at all. We wanted to share a sampling of the cool things we’ve had our eyes on as of late, regardless of if they show up on our doorsteps this year or not. Feel free to add what you’d like most this holiday season in the story comments as well.
