Just wondering what other people would like to get from family or friends in the hope that it might inspire me.

Various family members are demanding my Christmas wish list encouraging me to drop some not so subtle hints about what I'd like for Christmas and I have no idea whatsoever.

I have no idea either - but did just spot a Band Of Borthers Box set I have been meaning to buy myself for ages, oh and a book or 2...there was something else too but I cant remember what it is.

As of today, when a catalogue thing fell out of the Guardian, I want a foot warmer with massager. I'll look like a tit, but my feet will be sorted.

I think I'll pass on the foot warmer Hassled grin.

Part of the problem is that I got a stack of dvd sets and books last Christmas which I haven't even opened yet.

I'd really like some nice lovely things, but I can't think of any. confused. I could really do with a mooch round the shops for inspiration but short on time at the moment!

I've asked for a Michael Kors rose gold watch, they are expensive but know somebody who works there and gets 50% discount so not too bad.

I am asking for an Ipad - My DH tried really hard to get one last year but we just couldn't afford it - We can manage it this year, so I'm going to beg and moan and highlight them in any kind of paper form they appear in - Oh and whisper it into his ear whilst he is sleeping ... Should do the trick

I also want a frying pan - The one I have now is paper thin at the bottom and practically giving us heavy metal poisoning, I would kill for that lady off'ff the tellys big long draw full of new ones!

I would also like a nice new bag to match the uggs I got last year, they are the grey cardi ones and I just cannot find a nice bag that will look ok on me (Short fat and stumpy)

I have asked my parentals for a new Disney Snow Globe to add to my collection ... But I haven't found the one I really loved when we went to Disneyland a few years back, the hunt continues!

Fenouille Sun 25-Sep-11 19:14:45

The only thing I've come up with so far is the book that accompanies the great british bake off grin)

Shinyshoes1 Mon 26-Sep-11 14:27:23

I want the Beyonce CD.

It's my birthday saturday so have already asked for the Jessie J cd and a pair of slippers

I don't want/need anything else

Lisatheonewhoeatsdrytoast Mon 26-Sep-11 14:52:41

Various baking books, including the british bake off one like wangle99
some new perfume perhaps?
The Two and A Half Men boxset on amazon

Hi WhatWouldLeoDo. What about some really nice (sexy?) underwear or nightwear from La Senza or similar? Or a spa day with babysitting thrown in if you would need it. People could club together for these if more than they would usually spend.

Squitch Mon 26-Sep-11 16:14:57

I really really want a bike that is all

WhatWouldLeoDo Mon 26-Sep-11 20:10:26

Pootles - wanting curtains for Christmas isn't old it's just wrong! grin Thanks for the reminder about the babyliss big hair though, I've been wanting that all year so that's definitely on the list and it can sit gathering dust with the curling wand and straighteners that MN compelled me to ask for in previous years

envy of iPad ChunkyMonkeyMother - that's what I really really want, but it's quite a bit above the budget DH and I have set for each other sad

Thank you for all the other suggestions, got a few ideas but still on the hunt for something I can get really excited about grin

AmaraDresden Mon 26-Sep-11 22:04:07

I want Diesel Loverdose perfume, amazon vouchers, an iphone, I'd love a nice watch too, and a new house!! Am likely to only get the iphone as I suggested cash from my family towards buying my brother's off him when he upgrades lol.

WhatWouldLeoDo Mon 26-Sep-11 22:19:37

Hmm, there's a new kindle out. It might just go on the list. DH was most upset when we went away for a child-free weekend as a treat in the summer (for his birthday) and his 'man-bag' with supplies for the train contained his kindle and three whopping great hardbacks of mine grin
