    I love the sari bag and the personalised wire necklace, very cool.
    There is a lot of great ideas on that list.

    I want one of those electric hair brushes- the ones that straighten! And perfume! Seeing as Im the shopper Im pretty certain that they may appear on Christmas morning.

    I too buy most of my gifts Tanya. DH just does not have the time to shop and if I am out and see something that I like for a good price I grab it.
    I will give the kids ideas of what I would like and they will get them for me, but I do the most of the shopping.

    I too buy my own stuff. But the list is useful for my mom & sis

    I was making a pavlova one night through the week and realized that I did not have the right serving dish for it.
    DD and I were at the mall on Friday and saw the perfect serving plate for cakes and pavlovas. Flat, not edges and very easy to store. So that will be my gift from her.Yay!!

    Great list Lucie! One of my favourite gifts was a foldable market bag that I keep in my purse, always comes in handy and surprises everyone with how small it rolls and how much it holds!

    So far on my want list:

    New programmable coffeepot (found one that I like that does a pot as well as a single cup)
    Camera backpack
    Camera harness
    A 50mm lens (I think), a lot of people talk about this "nifty fifty" lens on a FB page i'm on for photography and I think they are rather cheap

    My list is so simple
    a photo album for our wedding pictures the original album is falling apart after 38 years.
    a new water bottle
    an otter box for my iphone. I don't need one but a new one would change things up a bit.

    Jody, Luke is hoping that Santa leaves him a new phone this year. He has also asked for an Otter Box to keep it in- once he found out how much new screens cost for the phone he wants.

    I love my Otter box. Good choice Luke.

    When ever I am in the store and see something I would like for Christmas I take picture of it and text it to my DH along with the name of the store he can find it at. He is usually pretty good about getting me what I want :) and even throwing in an extra gift or 2 that he knows I would like.

    Thanks! Taking the pictures and texting them to him was much easier then trying to explain what I wanted especially when there was a certain color or pattern that I wanted.

    Minta, what a great idea. I might need to start doing that with DH. I would like at least one surprise at Christmas.
