Christmas is FRIDAYYYY!!! I’m so exciteddd!
My wish list this year is weird. I never know what to say when people ask me what I want for Christmas so whenever I see something I like I just started putting it in my phone or if there is something I want to buy that’s a little pricey that I might want to buy later if I had extra money then I would do the same thing. I’m not going to share my whole wish list but just a few things because why not!
Have you guys every heard of the four gift rule for Children? It goes:
- Something they Want
- Something they Need
- Something to Wear
- Something to Read
I feel like that’s a good little strategy to go by especially when you’re trying to budget for Christmas. Kids don’t need much. They’re not going to remember what gifts they go when they were younger. I think one of the most exciting gifts that I remember was one year I got a hamster for Christmas and the reason I remembered (aside from the fact that I had him for years later) is because I snuck down the stairs before I woke up my parents and obviously his cage wasn’t wrapped and I was SO excited but I had to pretend I didn’t see it and contain my excitement and act surprised when I saw it again.
Anyway, back to regular scheduled programing. This wish list. Something I want, something I need, something to wear, something to read.
Something I want is an Apple iPad. I used to have one a long time ago and it got broken and it never got fixed but I appreciate everything you can do on it. It’s so handy to have. Not to mention, I would love to start getting more into creating digital art and it would be the perfect thing for that. Seeing all of these creative artist do such amazing things with an iPad is so mesmerizing and def something I want to try to attempt.
Something I need, I feel like need is a very broad word. I think I need a new coffee maker. My kureig has started making a weird noise when I use it. It is like three of years old but I really don’t know how long those things tend to last. I also feel like I may need a new vacuum, I just need to cave in a buy an expensive vacuum cleaner. I always end up just buying cheap ones and then they don’t last long.
Something to wear, ooo this is an easy one. I actually have several things that I wasn’t that fits this category. I really want a pair of Doc Martens. Like the original matte black ones with yellow shoe strings. I also want a pair of all white Nike Air Force Ones. I really really like shoes. I want sooo many pair it’s not even funny.
Something to read, Where the Crawdads sing is at the top of my reading list right now. I have heard nothing but good reviews on this book and I am so intrigued. It’s about a young woman named Kya, who’s left to raise herself in the marshes of North Carolina when her family abandons her at a young age. There is so much to her story: romance, mystery, and a murder… and it takes place in the breathtaking backdrop of the South.
So theres a little glimpse of my wishlist! It not as full as it actually is but I avoided trying to be boring and just make another holiday list. What is at the top of your wishlist this year? Let me know in the comments!
with love, c.p
