Once heard a fragrance expert on the radio. When asked the difference between perfume and aftershave he said ‘the packaging’.

I want an apple tag and holder for my keys- I am forever losing them in the house!

I did want a new bottle of a lovely perfume my gran bought me last year- I’ve worn it all year and loved it but when I googled it it turns out I’ve been wearing aftershave all year! I’m still tempted to get another bottle though it is very nice!

I’ve asked for dollars for my Vegas trip coming up.

I’ve also asked for Santal 33, coat and a necklace from the other half.

We’ve decided to splurged this year as we’re hoping to be carrying next Christmas :)

Nothing - so delighted when I can get people to agree to not buy for me, so I don’t need to think of something for them, or be burdened by thinking of something they can buy me!!

As per tradition I have helpfully sent DH the links to the following:
A long, padded coat from Hush in olive green
A pair of black suede bootee slippers from The White Company
Some more silver stacking bracelets from Bella Jane
A grey velvet padded parka from Hush
A black cashmere sweater from Wyse
A couple of books from The Folio Society
A framed print from John Lewis

Typically, he'll get me 3-4 things off the list.

On my fantasy wish list I have:
Solid gold bangle
Anmoushka charm for my chain
Le Labo perfume with my name on it
Oxblood leather Chelsea boots from whistles
Plain colour (plum or dark green or grey) cashmere jumper
Leonidas chocolates
Nathalie Lete Christmas decorations from Anthropologie
Beautiful glasses for juice / water
A gorgeous luxurious scarf

I have NO problems thinking of things I'd like, quite the opposite in fact.

It's highly unlikely that I'll get any of that though dh is pretty good at presents mostly & I've always been v happy with his choices

I'd love to be asked! My husband and I haven't exchanged gifts for years (I'd love even a small token gift) and my parents are about to have extended leave from work due to an operation so aren't doing gifts for the adults this year which is completely fair. I generally just get myself a few nice bits instead.

I love these threads! Because for some reason, I want things & then ask soon as I’m asked “what would you like for Christmas?” my mind goes completely blank and I forget!

Thanks @starrynight19 for starting a lovely thread. Xmas Smile

I’ve remembered that I really want one of those deep hair wave tong things & some books!

MIL wants me to do a list but I am really struggling.

The only thing I have so far are a couple of books from The McMillan Collectors Library (really sweet small books) and Hotel Chocolat chocolate or Lindt champagne truffles.

Our family has begun doing Secret Santa amount adults. It was so hard to think of items for myself, I am another who doesn't really want anything, but I put an electric throw blanket and a cookbook holder with an acrylic shield to hold down and protect the page on my list. And a Christmas mug.
Oh I just thought of something, I want a white Kitchen Aid Stand Mixer. My mixer is not big enough, and is 32 yrs old. Still works though! That doesn't fit our Secret Santa criteria though.
