It was D's birthday on Wednesday and I had a dilemma.
I wanted to buy him a present, but I didn't want to participate in the wanton consumerism of birthday presents and whatnots as well.
I couldn't knit him something because well, I had left it too late to be able to knit something of worth in time for his birthday.
Something handmade from the delightful "marketplace" called Etsy.
All items are handmade by individual artists, which means supporting people and creativity, as opposed to items made from mass producing multinationals.
And because I could even shop by location, I specifically chose Sydney so that transport and postage is kept to the minimum.
I also found the perfect little present:
Yes, they are Transformers cufflinks.
And yes, we are nerds.
