So far this year, I’ve thrown out a few Shopmas gift guides.

If you missed any of them, just click below:

TBP Holiday Shopping Ideas! (an assortment of various baubles, books and gifts from $20-$3200)

More Shopmas Gift Ideas! (more of the same)

Even More Holiday Shopping Ideas (emphasis on $50-$500 price range

Gift Giving Guide for the Traders in Your Life (our only slightly sarcastic gift ideas for Traders)

These end up being more time consuming and involving to produce than I ever expect, and I really appreciate the kind words and emails y’all sent. Its a fun exercise that generates some great data as to your buying habits (and a little coin for TBP staff).

Please use the comments to demonstrate your own ignorance, unfamiliarity with empirical data and lack of respect for scientific knowledge. Be sure to create straw men and argue against things I have neither said nor implied. If you could repeat previously discredited memes or steer the conversation into irrelevant, off topic discussions, it would be appreciated. Lastly, kindly forgo all civility in your discourse . . . you are, after all, anonymous.

    I may have missed them, but were any charitable organizations mentioned as a good way to give the gift of food, water and sustenance to someone who needs it, in honor of a loved one?

    Peace on Earth.

    At the end of last year you had a suggestion was Windham Hill 30 years…amazon $30. Definitely one of the most beautiful cd’s I own.

    Amazon is currently out of this, it sells by “another seller” for $265. I had to laugh…
    I wonder….do you pick stocks like this too?

    Thank you for many great, unbiased blogs.
