    Mel's post the other day about how her dd gave her a nice list with links for Christmas gifts made me think that I do one for myself and it needs updating.

    I'm looking for ideas for myself and I'm sure you gals have tons of ideas for yourselves which I can probably copy :)

    Here's my list up to now:

    • A sweater (one never has too many sweaters!)
    • Body cream
    • Black chocolat with chili Pepper
    • Pedicure
    • Anything from Renaud/Bray store
    • Porfolio to put away my art
    • Tea
    • White dishes
    • Salt lamp
    • Roots series dvd
    • Food chopper
    • Varnish for my paintings
    • Pook mittens, hat and scarf
    • Hunger games latest dvd
    • Tai-chi dvd
    • woodless colored pencils
    • Paintbrush case
    • Mp3 blue-tooth

    I have a list for me in my Christmas Planner- in the cabinet that Merlin is peacefully snoozing in front of. So cant access the actual list.

    As I buy my own gifts Im pretty confident that I will get some if not all of my list!

    Fountain Pen with different nibs and ink
    Salt Lamp (like Lucie)
    Body wash- preferably in vanilla type fragrances
    Perfume; Angel by Thierry Mugler- been wearing it since it came out in 1992
    Books- nothing heavy or intellectual just light easy reads for the beach
    Gold bangle- golf style- its possible that I will really treat myself and get one with diamonds- not decided as yet.
    Calendar plus planner

    Im sure there is a lot more especially small stuffer type bits but I can't think right now

    Hmmm, let's see. I haven't given it too much thought yet.

    - A Barnes & Noble gift card is always on my list
    - I want DH to make me a farm table for the dining room with a bench on one side and then we'd have to find chairs for the other sides.
    - A longer zoom lens for my camera
    - Salt lamps (after Lucie's post and link about them)
    - Nikon D3300 Book for Dummies
    - Firepit
    - Ninja snorkeling mask
    - Photo editing software

    I'll have to think on the rest.

    I know that this is very weird, but I would love a SonicCare tooth brush! Also on my list
    new boots
    Perfume (CKN2U)
    and perhaps if I am really good (or naughty?) a new ring!

    I have actually just ordered what I wanted - and will wrap, for myself :)

    I ordered a meditation cushion, eye pillow, and beads from an Etsy shop, MariposaZen - I ordered myself a bolster for mothers day/my birthday this year and love it.

    My wish list for my stocking would be:

    • Solmate socks (love their new knee high socks)
    • a winter infinity scarf
    • a new mug for home
    • a book mark
    • a new festive pattern of flannel PJ bottoms
    • a Swell waterbottle
    • peppermint foot lotion

    a maxi dress,
    a new bendy lighter for lighting candles,
    a pair of converse,
    a voucher for a pedi/mani
    and some perfume CK one.

    What a nice idea for a thread!

    Can I just ask though - What on earth is a Salt Lamp? Im welsh and I'm wondering if its some weird mythical thing - since lots of people don't tend to even know where my country is! Is it an actual lamp and Salt is the brand/design or is it actually something to do with Salt?

    Anyway, what would I like for Christmas........
    an iTunes voucher
    A cookbook holder
    A Boots voucher
    Something MotoGP related
    Voucher for a Tattoo

    Actually thats really hard. I never tend to think about myself.

    You know what I want for Christmas? A hand held hair dryer.

    So last night I washed my hair. It was getting late and I was so tired and did not feel like sitting under the standing dryer so I let it air dry over night. This morning I brushed it out but with this stupid humidity, my hair is a puffy mess. A quick go-over with a hand-held dryer would have been perfect. I could have used my flat iron but I'm trying not to use them as often now that my hair is healthy again.

    I love the salt lamp in my sons room! Works wonders for the 'boys' :)

    Browsing through Etsy and discovered several listings for custom order holiday return label stamps. I love this idea! Thinking that it has made its way onto my 'wish list'.

    Interesting...I never heard of them before. Thanks for sharing.

    The only thing I can think of that I want this year is a yarn valet. It's a tube that holds your needles, a little project like socks, and your pattern. The pattern fits into the tube so that you can read it and move the pattern up and down by turning the ends. Some new sock yarn to go with it would be nice too.

    Other than that maybe some bath bombs or perfume or something....just something to feel a little less frumpy after the baby arrives.

    I'll have to look up that yarn valet.. sounds interesting!

    Yarn bowls are sooo beautiful! I want one!

    My friend got a yarn bowl, and she loves it.
    The valet would work for crochet too. Keeps your pattern protected and easy to read and your yarn and hooks inside.
