Help please

In our family we do Christmas wish lists - normally I have no problem coming up with list, but this year I am stuck for much I would like - any ideas?

I'm early 30's, expect 3rd Dc in summer so asking for mat jeans (and black socks)but that's it - family not impressed with my list, (have rest of clothes from first 2 Dc).

I work and with Dc have no time / energy for hobbies. Not a girly girly so not really interested in make up, jewellery, handbags, scarfs etc. Had lots of candles last year- and still have them. Not fussed about reading.

Don't really waNt chocs etc(suffering with sickness). Happy listening to radio when kids not around - so not fussed about music.

Kitchen and house up keep is DH area - so nothing / no gadgets etc there.

Really coming up a blank - any ideas greatfully received! Thanks. Silly I know!

Nice warm pj's
Dressing gown
Slippers
Music ( I have asked for cd's for in my car )
Something nice for the house ( maybe a picture to go on the wall, ornament etc..)?

I'm not really into girly things either, I have asked for a umbrella for the school run, a camera or coffee machine from dh, car mats, power washer, Yankee candles and some cd's.

What about some good quality hand cream? My hands really suffered in pregnancy. Second magazine subscription

Hat? Warm gloves? Nice socks?
Do you take the family photos? If so, would a nice album be a good idea?
Do you garden? Would a nice plant or some seeds or even an indoor plant be an idea? One of those amaryllis bulbs which produces huge flowers if you just remember to water the thing?
Are there any DVDs you'd like?
Though not a girly-girl, do you like nice soap or deluxe bubble bath (I barely use makeup and change my earrings about once a week, but I do enjoy posh soap...)

This year, although I have several hobbies and read and read and read and do the garden and cook, I have asked for nice new slippers (I am very fussy and sent DH the link) and a cashmere cardigan (as I feel the cold).

Hope some of those inspire you...

Ah, I spent too long thinking. Some x-posting there.

A weekend away with DP before your 3rd DC arrives?
