This year, along with the gift of spacetime simultaneity, we decide to give the gift of virtuality. (It’s high-concept holidays here at MAKE!) We’re playing Secret Santa amongst the Makezine staff, but we’re not actually giving each other presents. The idea is to pick a staffmember’s name from a hat, think about something you think they’d like, and write a review/post about it. We’re also letting the recipient respond, if they wish. Hey, if it’s really the thought that counts, we’re about to find out!

BTW: What’s on YOUR list this year? What do you want, virtual or real? Tell us in the comments.
