1. A new ipod

2. A bath pillow

3. New perfume

4. Gift card to Barnes and Noble

5.  couple of board games

That’s all I have for now. DH and I both have birthdays right after Christmas so our lists have to be for the entire family for both events. MIL said she wants them by Nov 15th!

I’m on a huge budget for my wedding, but not wanting to skimp on quality.  Therefore, I’ve asked for gift certificates for Christmas.  (Manicure, Pedicure, Massage, Bridal Updo, etc.)  Therefore, they are GREAT gifts that I will use, and it will help our wedding budget!  Yay!

I’m usually the type of person that is VERY hard to shop for because I never really want anything physical/material.

This year I know what I want…shhhh….and it’s a whopper!

I really, really, really want a MacBook Pro with all the bells and whistles and with a Windows Platform.

I’ve never in my life had a new computer of my own. All my desktops have been hand me downs of my siblings. This current one is groaning.

I would love a laptop so that I can sit in the living room with my husband and be able to browse, do work, whatever! While still spending time with him.

My co-worker/computer guru has a old model and his with a windows platform is powerful enough to run the programs we need for work. Our programs take up a lot of memory and a lot of the processor.

So…my plan is to just ask for Apple Store gift cards from everyone! Hopefully it’ll make a dent and maybe after recouping from Xmas we can afford the balance!

And my SIL is in school now so she can help me purchase it with a student discount…I believe it’s 20% so that’ll help!

Let’s see:

1) A new (or used) saddle (will probably have to buy this myself, just hope my bonus is big enough)

2) New riding boots (again, may have to buy these myself)

3) Maybe a new cell phone… my iPhone is 2 years old now and starting to crap out on me. Just have to decide if I want to stay with AT&T or move back to Verizon

Can’t really think of anything else… maybe some new cable-knit sweaters for work since mine are getting pretty warn.

I’m asking for gift cards to barnes and noble..I have like 80 books I want to buy.

Also, a painting of our dog (lol), perfume, and a gift certificate for a mani/pedi since I haven’t had one in a year and I’ve been really good at cutting out the extras so we can save for the wedding ๐Ÿ™‚

My parents are just going to buy each of us stuff from our registry probably, but they are having trouble finding manly gifts from the registry for FI.

I would also love a DSLR and a new wallet (more like NEED a new wallet).

Well, in reality we’re getting money from parents because we’re still struggling in the job world.  But if I could get things:

  • Real Simple magazine subscription
  • J.Crew tan boots
  • New pair of black heels
  • Plane tickets home, or plane tickets anywhere really
  • Toy Story Mania for Wii
  • A new microbead pillow

We’re doing really small gifts for each other this year with our budgets, so I’m thinking I’ll get my magazine subscription, which is exciting!

@anwenning  LOVE that idea!  I think I am going to request one for my nails!

I do not have any one thing I really want this year.  I am so happy and I don’t need anything other then help with the wedding.  I think I am either going to ask for money or items for the wedding itself.  Plus I have already told both of our parents that anything on our registry is fair game.  We are registered at Sears for tons of tools and I am def. shopping for my FH off this registry.

I always do a birthday/christmas list because my birthday is this week (last wed!) and my mom usually starts shopping for Christmas in October anyways. So here were the few big things I had on there: 

1) flipcam  (parents got it for me for my bday!)

2) adobe lighroom 3 (FI got it for me for my bday!)

3) a 4×6 photo printer so i can do a faux-tobooth

So… all wedding related things haha. I’m not going to bother to give my mom too much of a list this year for Christmas because I told her to seriously cut back (because she’s helping us with the wedding), and also because a registry is kind of like a giant christmas list, no?
