A fire-proof safe (medium sized, not the little shoebox sized one). We live in a high fire-danger area and just had a major scare last month so I want a place to store all of our important docs, photos, etc. 

And a kitten.

MrsWiggles :  Omg yesss. I just got one and it is fantastic! I highly recommed the one with the stainless steel carafe instead of glass as it keeps temperature for extended period of time.

 

I really want a Cricut!

YogaMama :  Hahah! In my defense, pickles are my favorite food even non pregnant. I’d rather eat pickles than pretty much anything ever.

My wishlist is short. Hubs and I are paring down a lot this year. I asked him for a new bracelet (the kind with lava beads) and a mug. I also asked him for a mala but I don’t think I’m going to get it.

Mostly I just want my baby to stay in until after New Year’s. He’s due January 10 so that’d be the best gift if he would stay put until then!

We usually just agree on some larger joint gift (for both of us or for the house) that we purchase together and then get each other a few smaller more thoughtful items to open on Christmas Day. This year we’ve been planning on getting the ancestry DNA testing done for both of us. I also just got an Amazon Echo Dot for my birthday and I love it and would like to get another to keep in the kitchen, though that might just be a black friday purchase for me, lol.

MrsSapphire :  jannigirl :  I am so glad to hear that! 

I know he plans on getting it because he made me take it off our registry.

House decor!! We will be moving in together this December and I am trying to hold back on splurging too early for all the little trinkets and art pieces a new home needs!

It would be great to get it all as a Christmas present!!

I am dying for a pet fish (or more)! My BF knows that I’ve been wanting one for so long now, and he promised me that we could get one if we researched into it and made sure we got the right type of fish. He also wanted to put some money aside for it, so I’m hoping we can get a tank and all the food after we get our christmas bonuses.

A bangin juicer (I’m over my nutribullet)

And ANYTHING to do with facials, skin care (the hanacure mask, OMG), makeup (gift card to Sephora).

However, I dont make christmas lifts and tend to only spend on the kids.

As an aside, I am so not ready for Christmas and 2018 yet. 2017 literally just started to me. Too soon.

Fiance and I each have pinterest boards for the things we LIKE, but will not get for ourselves until the new year.

Both of our birthdays are in the late fall, so we both usually start adding things in October, then only have a few months to wait to see what we get from it to decide if we want to buy anything that wasn’t gifted to us for ourselves.

My pinboard has a range of stuff this year:

– A variety of on-sale throws in our new color scheme (we are redecorating the LR)
– Allbirds loafers
– an initial necklace he already got me, but with my future last initial this time, and in a different color
– specific workout clothing with colors and sizes
– a travel mug
– an initial trinket tray for my ring 
– a specific winter jacket I like 
– a camera 
– socks 

His pinboard always has very specific gear (fishing, camping, hunting, etc) that I would have NO idea about without his pins showing me the way. 

Sometimes we go entirely off the boards, and sometimes we don’t look at them at all because we have the perfect thing already in mind. But the boards are incredibly helpful!

I always put a TON on mine so that what Fiance winds up getting me is very much a surprise.

Tieks! I’ve been wanting to try a pair so bad, but couldn’t justify the price since I don’t know the quality and how they’ll hold up. I’d feel less guilty if they were gifted to me haha!

We do not do gifts. We take 3-4 overseas vacations a year, so we prefer to just put money towards that instead.
