I have gotten to the point in my life that when I want something I go buy it. This time of year thats bad I know! I have no idea what I want for christmas this year. My husband and my parents have been asking. So inspire me…what are you asking for christmas, hanukkah, etc?

eastcoaster: DH and I have a ‘rule’ we’re not allowed to buy anything for ourselves (outside necessities) for at least 2 months before Christmas.
Usually for Christmas I ask for things I wouldn’t buy myself – like jewellery. DH and I have also started buying each other experience gifts – concert tickets and the like. I’ve also been getting our concert tickets framed for him for the last few years – That’s My Ticket – they frame the tickets with the setlist (not original but made to look like it’s the real deal) and a copy of the CD that you choose (I always pick the one for the tour of that particular concert). DH loves them.

eastcoaster: I asked for a brown/tan MK tote, a pair of black Ray Ban sunglasses and 2 different perfumes. Stuff that I want, but that I won’t buy myself.
I’m there has to be some things you that you like that you want as a gift. Think of things that you would like but don’t want to buy yourself!

I asked for a professional set of pots and pans that we got for an amazing deal on cyber monday. I asked for slippers from FI (We set a $100 limit because we’re really not materialisitic), as well as asking for donations to my favourite charity and one that is very close to my heart – The Blind Cat Rescue. 🙂 I’m not trying to be “that person” asking for donations to charity but my family insists on doing something and I have no ideas for them.
