When I was a kid, I always used the Sears or JC Penney Catalog. Later, when I was active in Girl Scouts, I used the G.S. catalog. I circled items, cut them out, and made extensive lists.
With a November birthday and Christmas hot on it's heels, the gift giving season is off to a great start for me as soon as Halloween shrieks it's last scream.
(Thank goodness, because I'm no fan of Halloween.)
I'm certain we all have our on going wish lists, and I thought, "Why don't we all help each other?"
I'm starting to put together my own personal wish list and I would really love to share and see your list to see what might be out there that might make fabulous gifts for friends and family.
My primary hobbies include cooking and entertaining, reading, photography, boxing, and sleep. So my interests may be different that yours, but I'll bet they might mesh with someone on your list.
Share with all of us - what are you buying for those on your list, and what are you asking for?
Coffee Mug - I have a million and don't need any more, but for some reason, this one calls to me. :)
Vintage Camera Lens necklace - SO cute!
Reclaimed Wooden Pie Box - I love to bake, love to take cakes and cookies and brownies and pies over - and I have a great cake plate, but nothing to carry a pie in. I love the looks of this one.
Bourbon Every Month - Um, yeah, a bottle of bourbon every month. This is a fantastic gift.
Built in Bra PJ Top - if you've got some hooters on you, or your girlfriend/wife/partner/best friend does, you probably know that those cami's with the built in bras are a JOKE. I'm happy to say that I've bought one of these (yes, they ship from England, so they are a bit more and you do have to wait) are totally and 100% worth the money. I have boys in my house and need to wear something pretty supportive and sometimes, I just want to pull off the bra and get into my jammies. This type of top is super comfy, supportive, and pretty.
Kitchen Scale, any kind - An awful lot of the recipes I use are written in weights, and a scale is quickly becoming a necessity. I have seen scales that attach to your iPad, which is a pretty cool concept, but really - any scale would do me.
Ninja Coffee Bar - I am a coffee NUT. A freak, a lover - whatever it is, I am. I probably would never buy this, being that I adore my french press and milk frother - but this might make a good gift for your inlaws or maybe your spouse?
ColorBlock Sweater (in charcoal and green) - Not available in my size any more, but so cute.
Oona Skirt (in blue) - ADORE. I love wearing skirts and tights in the winter.
I also want a handgun. :) And range time.
Books. Books are GREAT.
Ok, your turn. :)
