This list is in no particular order of importance. Also, these are just suggestions. Other cool things would be greatly welcomed!

Games (on 360)
I don’t have a whole lot of time to play on my 360, maybe 4 or 5 hours a week, tops. So any newish game is good for me. I am not a fan at all of racing sim games. However games like NFS: Hot Pursuit I like a lot. I am also not a big fan of the military-style FPS genre (CoD, MW, etc). I have never really gotten into them, despite trying a coupe of times. Fighting games (Street Fighter, etc) are right out. No patience for them nor the time to master the systems. Here are some games that I know I would like:
Mass Effect 3
XCOM
HALO 4 (all the reviews I have read say that it is a great game, one of the best)
Dragon’s Dogma
Borderlands 2
NFS: Most Wanted
Mass Effect 3

Games (on the PC)
See my Steam wishlist

Books:
The Law of Superheroes (http://lawandthemultiverse.com/the-book/)
A book on grilling hamburgers, steaks, etc. Nothing too fancy, just a bunch of recipes.
Books on jogging, as I have started jogging recently

Other stuff:
Baseball hat suitable for wearing on a golf course
Polo shirts (also for golf course)

Jogging gear
Reflector Vest
Light-weight jogging baseball-style hat
Winter jogging gear (toque, gloves, etc)
A buff for jogging (like something from http://buffcanada.com/)

Other Games
I wouldn’t mind simple games like Fluxx, Munchkin, etc that are quick to play, quick to learn, and easy for a non-gamer (like my wife) to get into.
