I’m normally ON my gifting game by now. Gift giving is my love language and I usually have a laundry list of ideas for everyone in the summer and then it’s just a matter of execution. This year, I just can’t wrap my head around the fact that it’s ACTUALLY November and I’m having a hard time kicking into gift mode.
It also just feels like such a different year, obviously, and the struggle to get into the holiday spirit is real. I will be having some gift guides here and there on here, but I did think my Small Business Gift guide was pretty thorough (and special)!
What better way to try to get into the holiday spirit than coming up with a personal wish list 😆. Full transparency, I am overwhelmed by s t u f f. Between press mailers and wedding gifts, I am…. set. There is not a single thing I need. But, for the sake of the post, I did think of some fun things.
Personal Wish List
(Advance warning that the list is all over the place!)
Duffle Bag //
I’m going absolutely nowhere at the moment, but in the future I hope trips will happen. I am a big fan of everything Paravel does. I have a few pieces from their collection already and everything is beautiful and high quality.
I have and LOVE my Dyson blow dryer. It changed the game for how I style my hair. I’ve been eyeing the Airwrap since it came out but it’s expensive AF. My curling iron that I use now works just fine so it’s not like I need the Airwrap, just purely want it, ha.
Kind of dumb, but I’d love it if a beautiful floral arrangement just showed up every month. I may buy this for myself honestly. (You can turn it into a “subscription.”) We almost always have flowers in the house, but I’m lazy with arrangements and usually buy stems straight from the grocery store. Beautiful bouquets are a little luxury!
I cannot get enough of my Tretorns. I have a…. few pairs. And I do not need another pair, but man I love these sneaks with the little suede touch!!
We rarely use our blender but I feel like if we had a Vitamix we’d be more inclined? Mike would definitely love it too. If anyone has one…. do you use it? Is it a nightmare to clean? (My biggest fear is that I’d get it and never want to use it because it was annoying to clean.)
Neck Lamp //
Now that I’m adding to this wishlist and I’m realizing it’s only $14, I should just do it. Between reading and my needlepointing, I feel like this is a need. Grandma? Maybe. But my projects and books will be LIT. (Had to, I apologize.)
Airpod Pros //
I thought Airpods were so dumb when they first came out and now they’re some of my favorite pieces of tech. I *love* them. I’ve been thinking about upgrading to the Pros. (Especially now that everyone is working from home, I need good headphones to block out Mike’s conference calls haha.)
I’ve loved sewing so much that I want to add a serger into my mix to make things look a little more professional!! I don’t really have space for it right now and I’m intimidated by the threading of it…. but the temptation is real.
I’ve been dying for a ping pong table!! I actually found one on Facebook Marketplace for $200 and I’m trying to see if I can get it to fit into the back of my Subaru 😏 I think it’d be so much fun to have honestly. I love a good game of ping pong.
