Shall we exchange our virtual holiday gifts here? All Jellies are welcome!

Asked by augustlan (46572 points ) December 13th, 2010

Whether you’ve created it, searched for it, or just happened to stumble upon it, is there a gift that would be perfect for a fellow jelly? Let’s give it to them, in virtual form!

Post a link to your gift, along with the name of your recipient. If you want to be sure they ‘receive’ it, send them a PM directing them here. Enjoy!

No snark or passive aggressiveness, please. Nice, well-meaning gifts only. Thanks!

I came across this, and immediately thought of breedmitch. Happy holidays, Breed!

JilltheTooth's avatar

Here’s one for you and your family, Mama Auggie.

Coloma's avatar

My ‘gift’ has no picture or link.

It is simply…Good tidings to all! :-)

Cruiser's avatar

Merry Christmas @lucillelucillelucille ;)

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Cruiser -Thank you very much! Merry Christmas to you too! :)

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

Happy Holidays to everyone:)

Pandora's avatar

This. It didn’t come out the first time. Hope this works.
Oh, the gift is for Bobo. The very first one would be his. I know he will love it.

chyna's avatar

@jillthetooth Adam Cartwright Your gift, with lurve.

Coloma's avatar

@chyna

Hey, I want Antonio Banderas under my tree. lol

JilltheTooth's avatar

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Jude-Thank you! This will make your trips to your girlfriend’s adventuresome:)

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

For chyna, a job, or better yet, a good looking rich man to take care of her and treat her like a queen. For Jillthe tooth, some short term memory, for Cruiser a new Stratocaster, for lucille a wackier sense of humor, she has to lighten up, and for all the jellys Merry Christmas.

lucillelucillelucille's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe – XD I am sending you a Paso horse or one of those long-haired cows XD

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@lucillelucillelucille Nothing better than dancing horses and emo cows. XD

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@Coloma I’ll get you some corn for the goose.

Aster's avatar

@Coloma Antonio does not look like he used to . You’d be quite surprised. Best to go back at least ten years for your pick. lol

chyna's avatar

@augustlan My gift to you for putting up with my grumpiness and for having a bad week last week.

@JilltheTooth Thank you! I think that is the same poster I had in my bedroom. Molly says thanks too. I think she’s in love.
@Adirondackwannabe Thank you, I think the gift of a job would be perfect. Also one for your very own.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@Adirondackwannabe : Here’s something for you, so you can have us all come visit and where you can throw some truly awesome Jelly parties!

JilltheTooth's avatar

For Katawagrey, an evening with him of brain-picking and brainstorming.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@JilltheTooth Here’s something for you and all the other dog lovers. www.thewolfmountainnaturecenter.org

I recommend the Meritage. ;-)

rangerr's avatar

I’m just gonna go ahead and give a ridiculously big hug to everyone who isn’t part of this popularity contest. Cool? Cool.

Don’t mod me, bro. Everyone else needs love too.

KatawaGrey's avatar

@rangerr: Hey, she’s my mom, I have to give her something. ~

MissAnthrope's avatar

@rangerr – Thanks! Back at ya.

syz's avatar

One of these for all the jellies. And one of these for the home office.

Symbeline's avatar

I’m totally getting this shirt for Only138.
(Knowing him though, he probably already has it. XD) Still, I find it pretty cool that a character like Captain Spalding would get his picture on such a poetic looking shirt.

I’m getting this movie for Michael Huntington. Because he totally needs to see it and I know he’ll love it.

Vunessuh will get this bundle from me. She knows why. I might be tempted to keep it though…if that happens, she can have me. I’ll tie a Xmas bow in my hair and shit.

I’ll give this to Deliasdancemom, if everyone in Pittsburgh doesn’t have some already. I just know she’s cool enough to be all like, fuck garden gnomes, I want zombies.

I’m not sure what to get for Fiddle_Playing_Creole_Bastard…he likes firearms and antiques…so I hope he likes this gun that kinda looks like a mini tommygun.

And I’m making this little treat for Bob.

chyna's avatar

for @jeffgoldblumsprivatefacilities

cak's avatar

To all the fellow bacon loving jellies link

And to all the non-bacon loving jellies, though I never thought that was possible, I give: link

Anyone else not covered by this…I have beer. :)

deliasdancemom's avatar

@Symbeline im showing my hubby that, he wll totally buy that!

Kayak8's avatar

Let’s see, guacamole for the mods for starters, coffee for several of my favorite jellies (you know who you are), and I am having the Best of Fluther Relationship Advice bound to share with next year’s sufferers of teen angst (the reviewers really liked the section on How to Jam UR BFF’s FB so UR BFF don’t F UR BF and too many others to count)!

cak's avatar

@Kayak8 you just made me snicker. That’s really good!

chyna's avatar

Thanks @cak I’ll take the beer and bacon.

Symbeline's avatar

@deliasdancemom Do it! It’s the coolest thing a yard could possibly have. Hell I don’t even have a yard and I want one.

Coloma's avatar

@Symbeline

What, no pink Flamingos? lol

cak's avatar

@chyna yum. sounds like a perfect combination.

Symbeline's avatar

@Coloma Only if they’re zombies. XD

For the guys at the home office: Robotic Air Jellyfish!

janbb's avatar

OMG – I wanna Air Jelly or to be an Air Jelly or to make love to an Air Jelly….

chyna's avatar

The Air Jellyfish is so cool in a creepy kind of way.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

@chyna It does have a little creep factor.

cak's avatar

@chyna – if we drink the beer, eat the bacon and then watch the air jelly…maybe not so creepy. I guess that depends on how much beer.

chyna's avatar

@cak Perfect. We’ll just drink as much beer as it takes.

augustlan's avatar

I’ll bring the bacon.

JilltheTooth's avatar

Beer and bacon? Count me in! I’ll bring this so we can have some seriously inappropriate fun!

Blueroses's avatar

Beer, bacon, inflatables and projectiles…
Never let it be said that we don’t know what it means to par-tay!

JilltheTooth's avatar

I just bought myself these. Shall I bring them along??? :-)))

Blueroses's avatar

@JilltheTooth You bought them?! Too fabulous!! I’m jealous.

JilltheTooth's avatar

The minute I untangle them, up they go! Maybe while Fluther is down for amintenance.

cak's avatar

@JilltheTooth The perfect party accessory!

@Blueroses: Yep. We can fry up the bacon and fling things.

mattbrowne's avatar

I’d like to give away a copy of my novel to any Jelly

1) who enjoys long 700-pages epic books
2) who loves science fiction
3) and who’s had a bit of a rough time because of the economic crisis

The gift goes to the first Jelly who sends me a PM.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@mattbrowne : Damn. Already bought it. Better be good!

mattbrowne's avatar

@JilltheTooth – Enjoy! And please let me know what you think.

chyna's avatar

@mattbrowne I pm’d you! Was I first?? Was I? Huh, huh? Was I? ::bounces up and down::

JilltheTooth's avatar

Quick! Give that girl a squeaky toy!

mattbrowne's avatar

Wow. I received two messages at the same time. So, I’ll make it two gifts.

Adirondackwannabe's avatar

Thanks for making it two. I felt like I stepped on a smurf when I saw her answer.

augustlan's avatar

@mattbrowne You give us all a gift, just be being here. What a sweetheart you are!

mattbrowne's avatar

It’s so amazingly wonderful to be here :-)

JilltheTooth's avatar

@mattbrowne ; Sounds like Auggie’s sucking up…maybe she wants one too!
Btw, I noticed that it’s PART ONE! Are two and three in the works? Am I going to be left hanging? I get cranky!

mattbrowne's avatar

@JilltheTooth – I found a co-writer on Fluther for the sequels. We’ll continue the work in 2011. No, you won’t be left hanging. Number one is one story.

JilltheTooth's avatar

@mattbrowne : Phew! I’m always afraid I’ll be left hanging, then I’d have to worry about your personal safety… ;-)

rangerr's avatar

@mattbrowne The co-writer is a jelly? Whaaaaaaa?

Cruiser's avatar

@mattbrowne Very very cool sir!! Had no idea! I likey! Impressive reviews…“The plot has been done before; however, author Matt Browne has given it much more thought. (In fact, there were times I believed Browne’s version bordered on genius!)”

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar

@mattbrowne I’m more of a paranormal reader than a science fiction reader, but after reading the plot and the reviews, I’m considering giving your book a go.

mattbrowne's avatar

I’ll ask @A… if it’s okay with him to let the Fluther community know who’s the co-writer. I’ve got a quite demanding day job, so the first book had taken me 10 years (1998–2007)...

Having two writers will hopefully speed up the process. But we gonna need a lot of peer reviewers.

There are some creepy elements in the plot. Some of the technology in 2061 might look like paranormal stuff today!

augustlan's avatar

@mattbrowne Ooh, ooh! I wanna’ review!

mattbrowne's avatar

@augustlan – Thanks, that’s great. We’ll get back to you.

WillWorkForChocolate's avatar
