I'm curious what is on your Christmas list or other wish list? What do you hope someone will give to you as a gift or do you hope to gift to yourself?
I couldn't really come up with much I really wanted for Christmas this year. I told my sister a pair of boots or a new winter coat might be nice. She likes to gift practically. Usually getting me kitchenware of some sort. I think I got a crock pot last year, and new, beautiful dishes the year before. My parents are buying the family a cruise, so I'm pretty stoked about that. I've never been on a cruise before. My personal wish list, which I did not ask anyone for are: good headphones for listening to music, the rest of A Game of Thrones books, as I'm currently, finally working on the first one and am loving it so far, and a nice case and perhaps keyboard to go with my Google Nexus tablet.
A good friend of mine asked for artwork from myself. She told me to paint or draw her something. I thought that was very cool of her. She's decided to buy a remote controlled helicopter for her fiance, because he has wanted one ever since he was a child and never got one.
My roommate asked for shoes, since she's lost so so many pairs recently due to her dog.
For my niece, I told my sister I was considering getting her a kid's tablet of some sort since she's fond of her mom and dad's iPad: Leap frog or Nabi or something. She instead said I should get her toys that let her imitate her mom and dad. Apparently this two year old really likes to imitate them two, like blow drying mommy's hair with her play hair blow dryer. She recommended a play leaf blower or coffee maker.
For a friend, I bought a nice journal and pens because he aspires to be a writer.
For my mom, I'm thinking of some good headphones or speakers, since listening to music on her iPhone and iPad is the only thing she shows interest in besides cooking and cleaning.
For my dad, it's usually books and sometimes movies. He's an avid reader and we share an affinity for stories and fantasy. I'm thinking getting him started on A Game of Thrones since he isn't familiar with the books or the show yet.
For my brother in law, probably some sort of good beer from our/his home state. He's somewhat a beer connoisseur and now lives elsewhere, often homesick.
My sister will be the most difficult this year. No clue what to give her. Last year she asked for a very specific lamp. And for her birthday, I got her a Sephora makeup gift card since she had just given birth to her second child, and never spends money on herself. I'm at a loss.
So, I'm curious, what are you guys hoping to receive for Christmas or any other holiday event or other?
