It's only about a month away to the big day, and relatives keep asking what I want for Christmas. I don't knoooooow, I need inspiration!
What are you wanting for Christmas this year? All ideas welcome, especially cheaper ones as I'm not pushed to ask for Mulberry bags or diamond ring type budgets... grin )

I'm hoping for VW seat covers for my van and an electric aromatherapy oil diffuser .

Silver jewellery rather than diamonds? Books? Leather goods but not Mulberry, obvs (belt, gloves)? winter hat? Tech accessories for phone/tablet/music. Errm.... Any hobbies or interests that you need things for? Does your favourite scent need topping up? Or cosmetics, if you wear them? Vouchers?

Theatre tickets?

Driving experience day? (Tank or Ferrari)

'Friend of' museum or gallery membership for a year, eg the V&A, Royal Academy. (Apologies, a bit London-centric, but local or regional museums may well do them too)

I'm getting a White Company dressing gown from DH.

No idea what else to ask for. That was all my inspiration used up!

I always ask for scented candles as I love them and get through quite a lot. Kids buy me them from poundland but my husband will get me them from either imperial or yankee.

I also like posh chocolates (or any chocolate really) Pj's, alcohol - vodka, cava, prosecco or Bollinger from DH.

What do you do in your spare time OP? That might be a good starting point for ideas?

WanderingTrolley1 Sat 28-Nov-15 12:39:04

I ask for smellies from Molton Brown, L'occitane or Lush.

Or vouchers for Selfridges or Debenhams and use them for makeup.

I'm asking for camping gear. It covers all budgets as we have nothing, need everything and my family like to do surprises.

EElisavetaOfBelsornia Sat 28-Nov-15 13:01:40

I have asked for warm slipper boots and a nice calendar. <uninspired>

MyFriendsCallMeOh Sat 28-Nov-15 13:06:18

I'm asking for a handmade backgammon set I've found on etsy a bond an ottolenghi cookbook...

DontStopBelievin Sat 28-Nov-15 23:19:23

Oh, forgot I started this, what was I doing up at that time?! grin

There's some great ideas on here, I'm liking the idea of a magazine subscription and massage voucher.

Things I like...umm...

- reading (obsessed with reading, already asked for a book I want though)
- candles
- writing
- watching sitcoms such as Only Fools and Horses and Friends smile
- colouring

probably more things I like but gone blank!
