Last year I shared my Christmas Wishlist and it was lots of fun to actually sit down and think about the things I would love to receive. And even better I did receive a few things I had put on there. So maybe I need to let the universe know what is on my current Christmas wishlist so that again a few things find their way under the tree.
This doesn’t change. A good book goes a long way. Some of the NaBloPo Bloggers (who was it?) mentioned and Islandic tradition of giving books on December 24th and then everyone just reads. Love it. So these – among many others – are currently on my list:
- The Last Educate by Naomi Novik – last year I received the first in the trilogy
- The Pinguin Book of Christmas Stories – matching my Christmas Carol one
- The Winter Witch by Kathrin Arden – the last book in the trilogy I need
- Das Weihnachtshaus by Zsuzsa Bánk – another addition to my Christmas book collection
I love me a good pashmina. I have a whole drawer full of shawls, pashminas and scarfs. But the other day I realized I do not own a grey one. Do I need one? probably not I could make due with the black pashmina or the white one. I could also use the two grey heavy knit scarfs. But then a pashmina…. in gray…
This Goodby Stress Candle I asked for last year. I did get it. It is a wonderful scent. I want to have another one. I bought myself an IKEA eucalyptus candle as replacement but the scent is too strong, too cheap and I can only light it for so long before my migraine is easing its hand. So I would love to receive another one maybe switch up the scent and get the Feel-good Candle with macadamia and orange scents.
I want to have some more plant decoration in my craft lab aka home office. I think this type of modern plant stand would fit perfectly on top of the little side bar where the printer will be. And bonus I won’t clutter up the surface if the plant lives there. I think I need an eucalyptus plant there.
Another addition to my craft room. I have my reading chair. I was going to get a little side table but decided that my step-ladder (I am tiny person) will do if I just put a fancy tray on top and style it. This way I can put my cup of tea there for the next reading session. I love the Hay Kaleido Trays as they are so versatile. Of course in a blue shade.
My air pods are 5 years old or more and I can hardly get through a one our meeting by now. It is one of the most used items I have in a day and it is part of my work tools. So I am still pondering if I should just buy it as a business expense or wish for at Christmas.
I love me some fun polka dot or striped socks. Preferably with some glitter. The ones I own are slowly showing their usage so I wouldn’t mind getting some new ones. Staying in the color palette of blacks, grey and maybe add the pink ones.
You can never have too many earrings. And these are true statement pieces. I could probably figure out how to make myself one but every once in a while I like to just get a piece of fun jewelry.
All while knowing that it is not about the present. The husband and I are actually discussing of not getting gifts for each other. I am not sure how I feel about it. I would love to get presents from him because he always picks the best and most thoughtful ones. But I hate getting him presents so I am in a tight spot here. So wondering, how you handle it?
Happy Christmas shopping
