My Christmas Wish List

While I start to gather my list and find out what my family and friends  want/need this year I keep getting asked what do I want. To be perfectly honest there’s plenty a heart could want but thinking what do I need is another thing. What will I use the most and also benefit my family?  My mother in law would always ask me exactly what I wanted, she always made my Christmas special by including me. My husbands whole family has made me feel like I am one of them and I love spending time with them. I don’t have much family of my own so it’s nice to be noticed and loved even with Brenda gone. So I’ve been asked what is it that Kristin wants…..

So my list is small so I’m going to put it all out there.

  • Nice pots and pans.
  • Knife block (with knives)
  • Rug for my living room.
  • Any platter, dessert cups, plates. I’m a sucker for pretty kitchen and serving dishes.
  • New glass cups.
  • Another cookie pan.
  • A donation to a charity that helps women in honor of my mother in law Brenda.
  • Diamonds….come on, Santa!
  • Just for giggles: New lens for my Nikon.

I don’t honestly need much I do need pots and pans and would rather hold out for quality of quantity. Same with the knives. Come to think of my actual Christmas wish list and it was hard to come up with. I got everything I wanted this year my stand mixer, camera, new computer, just about every other electronic item my heart would desire. I have already been given so many blessings this year that if I got just one thing on my list my heart would be happy.

It leads me to ask this question…

How do you buy for the person who has everything and anything they want they just buy for themselves?

    If you are buying for someone you are close to, I think it is better to give something personal. Last year I gave photo books to some members of our family that buy what they need/want throughout the year. They loved it because it was sentimental and it saved them time. One year my daughter and I gave gifts of service to some that fell in the hard to buy for category. Sometimes time is the best gift you can give.

    Yeah, it’s tough buying for someone that has everything. I try to think of something that might be useful to them that they don’t know they want/need. Like a digital photo frame. Or the thing that really works is to ask them what they want because there is always something…

    Your list looks a lot like mine! 🙂 The person who has everything or will just buy whatever they need is my husband! He is impossible to shop for! So, I have to just buy him what I like for him lol
