Can you believe we’re less than a week away from Christmas? Time flies when you’re an adult and not waiting on Santa to bring you presents. 🙂 I can’t believe how fast this month has flown by and that it’s nearly time for me to begin my “Year in Review” posts (which kick off a week from today). But one of my favorite annual posts to write around this time of year is my Christmas wishlist. Even though my brother and I are in our thirties, we still send my mom a wishlist because what’s more fun than putting together a list of things you want? Obviously, I’m at the point in my life where I can typically get anything I want (even if that entails saving up for it for a month or two), so it can be harder and harder to put together a list, but I found a few things that I’d love to see under the tree this year!
1) A Miami Dolphins hoodie ($60). I am really craving a warm and cozy hoodie to wear at this time of the year. The one hoodie I have is more form-fitting and has those annoying thumb holes (I think I may be the only person who hates thumb holes!), so I never want to wear it. This one is much more my style and bonus: I’ll get to rep my favorite football team.
2) Clarisonic Mia 2 ($170). I have wanted a Clarisonic for years but they are so damn expensive! Nearly $200 just for a brush to wash my face? That seems fairly ridiculous, but I have heard so many rave reviews about the Clarisonic that I put it on my Christmas list because, let’s face it, that’s the only way I’m ever getting my hands on one of these. I definitely have my own issues with my face – lots of breakouts, redness, and an oily complexion – so I’m interested to see if a Clarisonic will solve some of my facial woes.
3) Harry Potter boxed set ($75). I used to own all seven Harry Potter books, but I gave them to a coworker’s daughter because I never thought I’d reread the series. Turns out I was wrong! I reread the series last year and now I know it’ll be a once-every-few-years thing, so I’d love to own a boxed set.
4) Trivial Pursuit, Classic Edition ($19). I love board games more than anything and I love Trivial Pursuit more than is probably healthy. It’s just such a fun game to play, even if I don’t know the answers to most of the questions, ha. I’ve had all different editions of Trivial Pursuit and I’d love to see this classic edition under the tree for me this year. (And then, of course, force my family to play it with me on Christmas.)
5) Sueded pointy black flats ($20). Black flats are my go-to for work because they go with everything and I hate wearing heels. I tend to need a new pair of flats at least once a year and the pair I have now are super worn out and… well… kinda stinky. This simple design from Old Navy would suit me just fine.
6) Secret Garden coloring book ($13). I’m obsessed with coloring right now, and I probably spend 30-60 minutes a day coloring while listening to a podcast. That’s not even an exaggeration. I’m currently working my way through one of the coloring books I own and I know I’ll need a new one soon, so why not get the classic coloring book that essentially kicked off the adult coloring obsession?
7) Books. Of course, what Christmas wishlist would be complete without books? I gave my family a list of 10 books that I’d love to see underneath the tree this year, including Nasty Women, Beartown, A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, and The Book of Unknown Americans.
8) Bookish tees. I put this one on my Christmas list because it speaks to my soul so much. I have three bookish tees already and I just want to grow my collection because not only do they allow me to proudly express my love for reading (a love I tried so hard to keep secret for such a long time), but the shirts are usually so comfortable and I’m all about comfort right now.
9) Vera Bradley lunch box ($19-$38). I am always on the market for a new lunch box because I bring my lunch to work on a near-daily basis, so my lunch boxes go through the gauntlet over the year. I love all things Vera Bradley and these lunch boxes are exactly what I’m looking for, especially in a fun pattern like the one above.
What’s on your Christmas wishlist this year?
