Submit Your Holiday 2005 Gift Ideas -- Although the Christmas decorations appeared in some stores here even before Halloween, the time has finally come to start planning for our annual gift issue, overflowing as it does every year with suggestions from our readers. It's scheduled for publication in the second week in December, so please tell us what gifts you've put on your holiday wish list, along with those items you're planning to present to your loved ones this year. As always, we're collecting ideas in TidBITS Talk, so send your suggestions to <> or submit them in the TidBITS Talk Web forum, and please use plain text format, not HTML. We've already started threads for specific categories. Please suggest only one product or idea per message, give the reason why you're recommending it, make sure to include a URL or other necessary contact information, and please recommend only others' products. If possible, try to suggest products that haven't appeared in previous gift issues; we may drop repetitive suggestions from the issue itself. To refresh your memory on what readers have suggested previously, check out the last three gift issues before writing in. Thanks in advance! [ACE]
