I've asked DH for:
UGGS to wear as slippers
2016 diary
Some simple stud earrings
And a surprise grin. Poor bloke.

My DParents have paid for me to have my hair done and will give me some cash and Kindle vouchers.

No idea what my DSis has got me - there's 3 wrapped presents currently in my suitcase so looking forward to opening them.

new sewing machine... and the time to use it!

Uggs to wear as slippers?? Most expensive slippers ever hahah!

Sleep lol.

My criteria is no plugs or batteries needed and should sparkle fwink from DH.

Everyone else a John Lewis voucher is lovely. I don't want anyone stressing about gift shopping for me.

I would really love some nice bath shit. A full set- bubbles, oil, wash, scrub, lotion, soap, spray etc. Not very expensive but mid-range like Soap and Glory or Body Shop.

DH refuses to buy it for me. Apparently smellies and bah shit shows no thought and is what misogynistic men buy for wives they don't particularly like and can't be bothered to think of very personalised presents for.

But I want some [emoticon of me having a massive tantrum]

A charm for my bracelet ( a big mn no no, but I don't care) and a grown up dot to dot book smile

We're having Christmas in Australia. UGGs are just the name of the style, rather than the actual brand there.

Figure that instead of buying slippers once or twice a year at £15 a pop, I can get a decent pair that lasts for a few years for around £40.

DH also hates people that wear them outside as shoes. It's just wrong.

A pair of nikes
A cashmere jumper
A jumper from all saints
Pjs
A really nice candle
Body lotion

I'll be lucky!!!

Not expecting any presents this year (unless Santa pays a visit), but on my list would be:

Nice hat/scarf set
Wireless headphones - Pet hate at the gym trying to run and feeling the headphone wires slipping
Iphone armband - No longer fits neatly in the pocket of Nike running leggings since iphone 6

May treat myself to the headphones in January. Christmas spirit has been dampened this year by an additional outlay of £1750 in legal fees this month (Children's Act Proceedings). fsad

I want a bath rack for my wine , specifically this one: www.amazon.co.uk/Umbra-Aquala-Bathtub-Caddy-Natural/dp/B00176AOKM/ref=sr_1_1?s=kitchen&ie=UTF8&qid=1450354526&sr=1-1&keywords=bath+shelf

Have dropped a few hints but no-one seems to be biting. If they are then they're being very subtle about it :P

I've asked for a set of crochet hooks, a new iPad case and a lava lamp! Simples! Can all be bought in ?Amazon with one click so DH is happy.

I am almost always disappointed with surprises unless it's books.

Lego! I love doing it and find it very relaxing. There is a big box in DH's study so I think he has bought me some. He go put me the Death Star two years ago and I loved it.
I bought myself a handbag from All Saints last month which was a bit more than I would normally spend so I gave it to DH to wrap for me.

I've said no smellies this year as I've still got lots from last year.

I'd like the new Nigella cookbook too. MIL will ask what I want so I might suggest that. DH won't get it for me as he thinks we have too many cook books. He's right but I love them. AlthOugh he does most of the cooking.

well I would LOVE for someone to pay for a cleaning company to come and blitz the house for me and leave it sparkling clean and tidy (preferably once I've taken all the decs down.)
alternatively a night in a cottage in a remote location with just the dogs, a good book chocolate and wine and absolutely NO ONE to have to talk to.

in reality will no doubt get some nice chocs and wine of my parents/sister and bugger all of dh...hmm

I would love a bath pillow, new brolly and a new cross body bag. DH will get extra bits for me, but i'd be over the moon with the bits I mentioned.
