Is it to early to start a 'naice things for us' thread?

Now that I'm on a Christmas roll, shall we have a thread collating ideas about nice things that we would like so when we get asked in the second week of December we can suggest some things?
As it's early enough it might double as a birthday list too.

A few ideas of stuff I'd like:
Voucher for the spa I go to
Voucher for the hairdresser I go to
I'll be 6 months postpartum so I would imagine some new clothes would be amazing but I don't know what just yet. Possibly some really good fitting jeans.
Nice ankle boots.
I've seen a beautiful necklace on an american blogger .10 diamond on a 16" chain - absolutely gorgeous.
Basically, I'd like anything towards the perfect capsule wardrobe and polished look.

In the random things I think of but wouldn't think of buying for myself:
A spaghetti measurer thing
A candle trimmer thing (I can't remember the word for it right now)
A tiny purse that holds my travel pass and bank card that I can easily slip into my back pocket.

Generally it'll be just DH who will be buying me a present as our family does secret santa and his doesn't really do presents.

I will be about 8 weeks post partum and will have just had a new kitchen so:
- spa day voucher for later in the year
- some naice kitchen bits
-a pashmina
- gin and some gin drinking glasses
- a pair of earrings

This is the necklace I love www.etsy.com/uk/listing/593598147/diamond-necklace-dainty-solitaire?ref=hp_rv and this is it on the blogger: www.instagram.com/p/BjDtUZgHAnO/?hl=en&taken-by=younghouselove The etsy seller is in America so no point trying to get it from there as I'd be annihilated by customs charges, so I'm going to keep an eye out for similar in the UK. Synthetic diamond or decent quality CZ would be very much acceptable and probably preferable. I wouldn't have to worry about wearing it everyday.
Lovely simple stud earrings would be great too.

I have become all about the linen/cashmere/silk. Especially my linen blanket (from Ikea!) so as far as naice things go, I would like the normal stuff (socks, jumpers, whatever) but in nicer fabrics.

I want the new lego harry potter sets. That will do me just fine. But naice things I would love (but unlikely to ever recieve):
Cashmere bed socks
White company reed diffuser
A selection of my favourite hotel chocolate choccies
Border biscuits
Candy kitten sweets (Yes I know - I love food!)
Personalised emma bridgewater mug
Lush bath bombs and bubble bars
A good book
Some fancy tea

Spa voucher
B and q vouchers
Baby powder candle
Chocolate
Retro sweets
Massage
Bracelet
Earrings
A nice lunch box
Power bank
Socks
Mini pots of milk for my teasmaid.
A good food processor
Pillar candles
Tapered candles

I'm easy to buy for but it's rare that I get any of this despite asking. None of it is particularly expensive either.

I'm more of a practical person so drill bits, chisels, paint brushes is what I'd really love.

Dp asked last year what I wanted,really really wanted. I wanted a door for my living room.
He thought I was joking. I wasn't. It's cold in there without a door.

Id kill for a bigger tool box too! One with drawers and wheels!

I got a kreg jig as a present a while back so I am good with practical presents.
