There are so many threads on what to get DCs/aged relatives for Christmas, I thought I would start one with our Christmas wish lists - fantasy or otherwise!

This is the place to be extremely materialistic and share what you would like Santa to bring you this December 25th.

After world peace blah, blah, blah, I would like the following:

A nice watch (haven't had one for years)
An appointment to get my 'colours' done
Sheepskin slippers
Some new running trainers
Riding lessons
Some nice skin care products and make up
Paperchase stationary
A shopping spree for new clothes on the back of having my colours done

I am never in million years expecting all of this, maybe one or two things if I'm lucky! I also like surprises/little bits and bobs too.

What is on your crimbo list this year? smile

Ooh, just looked at those next jeans -thanks

BirdingWidow Mon 14-Oct-13 06:54:04

Ooh, glad you like the look of them. They are cut surprisingly well for the price, I have been delighted with mine. And they are quite hardwearing (ie haven't worn out at the top of the thighs after 5 mins like others). No more overpriced jeans for me.

Now I am just hoping they don't stop selling them!

Quite honestly? Nothing, really nothing. I have been asked by family what I would like for Xmas and there is nothing at all that I want!

Fantasy list

An hour with my mum so she can meet my DS and, being very greedy, time with my sister as well.

More likely wish list

New handbag
Pretty cosmetic jewellery
Anything warm and cosy like pjs and jumpers.

All mine are fantasy gifts. I can't think of a single thing I would really like that I actually have a hope in hell of getting. But in an ideal world, I would like...

To not have to spend Christmas day with DH's family. The reasons for this would be a whole post on their own, but I haven't got it in me to fight for the sort of Christmas I'd like.
A cleaner once a week for a year.
A decluttering firm to come and help me blitz this pigsty for a whole day before baby #3 arrives in February.
A handyman to come and do the million jobs that DH never gets round to and I am too short/ weak/ pregnant to do myself.
A monthly appointment with a masseur/masseuse. My whole body is full of tension, and a one minute cursory back rub from DH before he gets bored really doesn't cut it!
A weekend in London, on my own, when I can just eat out, shop, go to the theatre and have some peace and quiet in a comfy hotel room.
And if I'm being really greedy, a new car. Either a larger family car or a lovely little car I can nip around in when not transporting kids. But TBH I'm not a car person, and my 12 year old Civic will still work for a family of 5, just.

Oh crap, did I kill the thread? I was enjoying reading other people's real and fantasy lists. Very sad for those whose lazy-arse DHs don't buy them presents though. Come and spend Christmas with me!

I would like a wormery, so that I can use all the scraps that get left by everyone (DSS is 11 and a fussy eater, and we have 2 DDs, 2 1/2 and 10 months so it would get topped up daily!!)
I would like things from the Joe Browns clothing website, they have some lovely dresses, I haven't had anything new since DD2 arrived, I'm off to buy some new bras tomorrow as it's DD1's first day with the new childminder so new dresses might fit nicely once that's done!

YukonHo Mon 14-Oct-13 22:30:37

Bonnymiffy, we have had our wormery for two years and those feckers take bloody AGES to eat their leftovers!

SugarMiceInTheRain Tue 15-Oct-13 00:36:15

Haha a wormery would be the last thing on my list. Can't bear creepy crawlies and slimy things! Each to their own eh?

I've just told DH he can get me a Yankee candle for Christmas... imaginative, not. (he can't cope with having to surprise me!) hmm

Fantasy List

A cleaner
The garden to be sorted out so that I can just maintain it (we just moved in and it's a weed filled jungle)
Diamond Stud earrings, the really plain tiny round ones
A wooden and metal trunk to put at the end of the bed with blankets in
Time to sit on the sofa and read all the books I have bought but never have time to read
Time to go running 3 times a week like I used to

Failing that (!)

mince pies, mulled wine and stollen with friends
a dark chocolate advent calendar
letterpress stationery with my name and address at the top (was "given" this last xmas by DH but it still hasn't materialised...)

bonnymiffy Tue 15-Oct-13 22:15:28

Well, Yukon, that's taken the shine off my plans. Can't you just add more worms?
And Sugarmice - it would live in the garden!!
But seeing as even that's unlikely (DH is far more likely to get me clothes, which post-DD2 I do need) I think I like Artemis's idea of mulled wine and mince pies! With brandy cream....

YukonHo Wed 16-Oct-13 00:17:59

Ours lives in the garden, we do periodically add extra worms, though haven't lately. When they live outside you'll need to watch the weather because they can freeze to death when it's very cold! (Voice of bitter experience, blame Dh, they are his bloody worms, I have enough to think about with the kids own versions and the rest of the livestock ;) )

I would like a new telephoto lens for my SLR. My old one died this summer. I haven't replaced it as yet as I am holding out for a much better quality, and therefore much more expensive one - I am pretty sure it is what DH will get me for my main pressie.
