I never normally make lists but DP wants me too as last year was a bit stressful for him apparently!

I know I don't want smellies/perfume or more books too add to the must read but never do collection but that doesn't help me with what I do what!

So I was hoping some of your lists may inspire me!

Thanks

I would like a Kindle and some perfume - I am hoping everyone will club together grin

What is your budget? (I know it is not you spending it but you know what I mean.)

Dear Santa.

I would really like my oven professionally cleaned please.

I don't care how shit that sounds because I want it.

For me and dh to keep our jobs.

We don't do grown ups presents as kids cost so much.

My Christmas list would be very long if I did one and would definately involve new bras,boots,perfume,books,running shoes,30 Day Shred DVD etc etc.

Happy to see little smiley faces though!!!!smile

I'd like an ice-cube maker (don't know why but I do).

But DH and I have just had to replace our car which was beyond economic repair (ie would have cost nearly twice what the car was worth),.
So I have a nice little 2010 motor, but I couldn't have waited til Christmas.

Already bought some nice earrings for me.

How about a lovely day out doing something you really fancy?

Underwear
Kindle
Expensive bag
Cherner chair
Timorous beasties cushions
Turkish delight
Clarins hand cream
Rose and violet creams

I absolutely DO NOT want any thornton's chocolates or perfume.

A damned good shag would be good but I can't see Father Christmas managing it somehow. Bit busy with other people's stockings I suppose.

Budget- probably between £50 and £80. We are being rather selfish this year and not spending on extended family/friends.

We live quite far away from any theatres/live gigs etc but will have a look.

Im very much a practical person and like to receive things I need rather than want. Unlike my DP who is into books/DVDs/extending his Lego collection.

Blackflamecandle- I get presents like a food processor and knives from my mum. Last year or the year before it was a sewing machine. So perfectly acceptable present in her eyes (I don't sew but she thinks I should- her rational behind all her presents!)

A shag would be lovely but think as I will be within the ) week postnatal period I may not be up to it.

I would really like money towards clothes but again post natal and want to lose a ton of weight.

Grumpla Sun 09-Oct-11 00:19:00

A really nice pair of proper sheepskin mittens.

Socks. I love socks.

Errrrrrrrrrr... Some books?

And a chocolate orange. Obvs.

sleepevader Sun 09-Oct-11 00:19:51

Things I could steal from your ideas are boots,massage, bravissimo undies, Cinema voucher

LikeABlackFlameCandleBNQ Sun 09-Oct-11 00:21:27

New cosy dressing gown for lolling around in with baby?
Box set of a series you love?

LordOfTheFlies Sun 09-Oct-11 00:22:19

No No No No knives as a present it is sooooo unlucky.

Speaking as one who is very superstitous and had to smack the living daylights gently reprimand my DS for putting his new trainers on the table just to rile me.

LOTF puts trainers on the floor.DS puts on table. LOTF puts back on floor -sigh-. DS puts them back on table and cackles like a magpie. LOTF gets DS in a headlock.

Now where's your Christmas list PFB ??

MeMySonAndI Sun 09-Oct-11 00:23:47

Nothing, as usual...

Magneto Sun 09-Oct-11 07:35:21

I want a nice bathrobe, not a dressing gown...dh has two (neither of them nice) which I end up wearing even though they're huge on me!

EttiKetti Sun 09-Oct-11 07:40:10

I want a Fizbag handbag organizer, perfume, undies.

ChildofIsis Sun 09-Oct-11 07:42:23

All I'd like is for my first christmas as a lone parent to be lovely.
I'd like to get through it without too much crying and feelings of loss.

If anyone has any ideas how I can ask Santa for that I'd be gratefull.

sleepevader Sun 09-Oct-11 08:46:24

Childofisis sorry to hear you are not looking forward to your first Christmas as a lone parent. I do understand as I found out my ex had been cheating on me on our sons first Christmas and the following Christmas I decided to let him visit and have lunch so as not to miss out on son. Must have been the worst decision I ever made. Cue my desire to make subsequent Christmases special. Could a close friend and you make a pact to make a little stocking for each other?

Magneto - you have reminded me. I would like a dressing robe too. Purple, soft like silk and lightweight. I got a dressing gown last year and hardly wear it as it gets too hot!

Box set of spooks maybe an idea.

Is it sad to ask for a tagine?

Lordoftheflies- the knives were my 18th birthday present too!
