It’s been a minute since I last wrote down a list of things I’d like to receive for Christmas. I usually can’t really name anything. But this year around I kept a file and wrote down a few things I would love to unwrap. Not that the gift thing is the main event on Christmas in my book but it sure is nice to be pampered. And I do love sitting fully stuffed with Christmas dinner and take turns unwrapping. It is always such a nice atmosphere. The candles burning a hot drink at hand. You get the picture. So here are my humble wishes:
Always and forever the perfect present for me. Current list of books I want to own and not just read as an ebook include:
- A deadly education by Naomi Novik
- For the Wolf by Hannah Whitten
- The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey
- Smoke gets in your eyes by Caitlin Doughty
- The Evening and the Morning by Ken Follet
- How to stop time by Matt Haig
- Wir gegen euch by Fredrik Brackman
- Noras Welt by Jostein Gaarder
- The last thing he told me by Laura Dave
- Das geheime Leben der Bäume by Peter Wohlleben
I have been gifted craft courses by my sisters before. I remember a screen printing one that was so very fun. Also I received a cosmetic one which I couldn’t cash in yet due to Covid. I am hoping there is a time. I think it is a lovely thing to try your hand in a new thing. But I would most likely not get it for myself. So it’s a very appreciated gift. I am currently eying the following:
- Wilde Fermente – an online workshop on how to ferment veggies.
- Kombucha Starter Kit – all ingredients and the admittance to the online academy.
- A course at the Medical Plants School – to learn about herbs, plants, tea and natural cosmetic.
I am usually
not liking hating scented candles because the more often than not trigger a migraine with their intensity. But just recently I gifted this Goodby Stress Candle with water mint and rosemary to a friend of mine and I was a bit jealous I couldn’t relaxe in my bath tub with it. Apparently scented candles are ok if they are with natural aroma oils.
I hardly drink alcohol. Again my migraines are the reason. So all things like champagne, wine, sparkling wine and many others are on my “avoid” list. What I do tolerate and what has become my go to choice is gin. I am not very good in picking different kinds but I would like to. Somewhere in the internet a person recommended this Needle Gin. It is made in Germany and induced with pine needles. I think I’d like to try.
Another gift I have received previously from my sister and I wouldn’t mind getting again. Last year I even wrote a whole blog post about my puzzle love which includes some fun and difficult options. Recently I was eying this houseplant jungle one or this artsy world map. Any other good recommendations?
I never thought I like my Apple Watch this much. But I do. Mainly because it tracks my steps and for the monthly activity challenges. I have the standard wrist band and I think I would like a more fancy one. Currently I am eying the following:
Gitti nail polish
I love nail polish. But we all know by now that healthy is a different story. But there are innovative companies on the rise. Currently I am eying this set Plant Trio + Remover. With all the color choices I think I would go with No. 119 sky white, No. 129 gray violet and No. 139 fiery orange-red.
Since it looks like I am not getting this hula hoop thing down I figured maybe I should do the stuff I knew and was actually pretty good at previously in my life. And that is rope skipping. I have no idea what kind of rope I would want I used to do it with a regular rope but when you google now its all fancy high tech.
Alright I think that is enough wishes. Just seeing this I start thinking again that I do not need any of it really. But that defies the purpose of a which list. Nothing on such a list is something you need. So I leave it at that. How about your Christmas wishes? Anything we have in common?
Happy Christmas shopping
