I have a birthday and Christmas very close together and struggling to give suggestions when people ask me.
What are you coveting this year ?

Normally nothing, my dh gets me perfume, jewelry and some lovely bits and bobs. I saw the Naked Palette 3 thingy thing today and, oh my goodness, I want!

I'd like a tortoise.

New ipad as mine is ancient and on its last legs. Earrings or some form of jewellery, perfume. I would really like a lovely new pen too.

I don't want anything really. I'm annoying everyone by not coming up with a list at all. I need new clothes but would need to try them on to see what fits properly, also need new bras but definitely need to try them on. There are a few books I'd like, but i read on my Kindle and you can't buy Kindle books as presents (unless they've introduced that option recently).

Yes I think you can buy kindle books now! I discovered recently. Well, you can get a kindle gift card and redeem it on books. That's what's I've asked for this year.

I would really like a slouchy cashmere beanie and wrist warmers, some Aromatherapy Associates Deep Relax Bath Oil, an Ottolenghi recipe book and a Spicery gift voucher.

Not sure this year as I'm pregnant so not bothered about clothes or booze, but not far enough along to want anything baby related.
I thought about a naked palette but not sure how long it'll be before I end up using it so may as well wait till next Christmas.

Origins ginger essence perfume
Soap and glory scrub your nose in it face wash

Fitness tracker (I'm after the Fitbit Charge HR)
I always want pyjamas, bubble bath, funky jewelry (DH picks good things from independent artists).
Retro sewing box.
Possibly a very large cutting mat (for sewing) - I need to measure my cutting space.

I'm asking for an Apple Watch 2 this year which is way way above what we normally spend. We can afford it but I always feel guilty asking for stuff for me (totally self-inflicted I should add).

vintagechick43 Sat 12-Nov-16 20:16:59

Oooh I want one of those babylis big hair styler thingy's .... hoping it might make me look glamorous !!

My list is pretty much identical every year:

some makeup
some nice knickers and socks
bracelets
scarf
bubble bath
lots and lots of books

Flisspaps Sat 12-Nov-16 20:38:51

A NASA sweatshirt

If you can't tell, my obsession is space. And I have a list on Pinterest (more than is here) which DH chooses a few things from so it's always a surprise when I open it and I do the same for him grin

We're somewhat poorer than previous years so stuff I'm not buying for myself at the moment, mainly Liz Earle skincare stuff. Lots I'd like but nothing I need apart from moisturiser that's better than the Olay chip fat I bought as a stop gap. I know people have it much worse, but I am really resenting having less money.

Clips for my Pandora bracelet
new PJs
Hat / scarf / gloves
smellies, perfume, bath stuff etc
Scented candle
