Some fun for a Sunday afternoon - what s on your Christmas wish list no holds barred,
Forget the budget, Christmas present wish list ?

Mine would be a new camera, and a sapphire pendant

I would like some enormous diamond studs, the sort that would make my ear lobe drop with the weight.
Or a week in the Maldives flying Club.
Or some Missoni cushions.
Failing that a new wheelbarrow.

Went round the Body Shop yesterday and wanted to buy most of the facial products and the body scrubs. Even if I treated myself to a few of them it would soon go over 100 pounds. blush

A Tiffany East-West 3-hand watch (because I want the entirely useless window on the back that can't even be seen when wearing it). Blue face and blue alligator strap please, thank you very much.

Some new LK Bennett nude patents, don't care if they're in or out, they're so useful.

Or can I vote for having no presents at all, but magically losing a stone overnight?

A proper Burberry trench. Diamond studs. A leather dress. And leather trousers that fit perfectly and never bag. And speaking of bags, something super soft and overpriced.

HexeSauerkraut Sun 12-Nov-17 16:46:57

Silk pyjamas. The Aspreys charm bracelet.

I want my health back please. Along with a newfoundland puppy and an extension for a utility room.

PinkLipsDontLie Sun 12-Nov-17 17:03:32

1. Tan or grey wool coat with a hood and a belt. (can't find a decent one with high wool content)
2. Small tan leather tote, lined with a zip. (can't find one either as I want it structured and not huge)
3. New leather strap for my Rosefield watch (as the previous one only lasted a year)
4. Knomo-type backpack, still undecided, as nothing seems to -satisfy my imaginary needs- to excite me
5. Rib or body con top in cream/pink/light colour WITHOUT polyester (have you seen any?)
6. Sezane felix jumper (which is sold out for now)
7. Faux fur coat (one that will not make me look like a bear that accidentally woke up midwinter)

This is my actual list for AW17. Not that I will buy everything. I have decided not to settle for second best and spend when I really love something. Suggestions welcome.

Sourdoughandbagels Sun 12-Nov-17 17:11:24

Primarily, being able to buy my Mum a nice little bungalow or ground floor flat and get her out of her council house.

Buy DH his much coveted Ferrari (red, obvs)

I would like:

A no holds barred spending spree at Bicester Village
A Chanel handbag (to take on the spending spree)
Something sparkly from Tiffany
A trip to New York, travelling First Class to buy the something sparkly from Tiffany (I did say it had to be from the New York one didn't I?)

In reality, I would like everyone to have a happy and healthy and peaceful 2018

I'd love some Liberty print silk pyjamas and to spend Christmas on safari in Namibia.....

Pinklips- have you looked on eBay for your elusive coat? I’ve just bid and won a wool/cashmere grey long coat immmaculate condition for £15.

Some Vivienne Westwood
Some Margaret Howell
Some Brora cashmere
A vintage, long Aquascutum raincoat

A liberty print mug, I particularly like this one.

An Alex Monroe necklace, the leaping bunny one, though I like the tea cup and saucer one too.

The perfect sweater, and t-shirt pattern.
