My Christmas wish list

What gift are you wishing for?

As I mentioned before, I never write wish lists. However, I got so many requests from you guys, that I’ve actually written the first wish list in my life! In fact, I think I’m getting old. When I was younger, I used to want a lot of stuff, but now I just wish for a nice family gathering and small gifts with a thought. Anyway, some things I wish for:

- Erlend Loe books (he’s one of the best Nordic writers, if not the best)

- Simple white pearl earrings

- A hyacinth vase or big vase (not a gigantic one, though)

- Sonicare electrical toothbrush

- Nail polishes! I like Mavala, OPI, Chanel and Essie.

- Dog jewelry for Greger. Something with feathers and artificial diamonds would be nice!

- Handmade stuff (made by the giver, of course)

- Small nice things, like socks, gloves, scarves, brooches, scented candles and things like that – one can never have too many

It wasn’t very easy making a wish list, since I almost always prefer to get things the giver finds appropriate for me. It’s not always spot-on, but I’m more curious to see what other people think suits me, rather than getting a useful thing that I just don’t want to spend my money on. Nevertheless, I’d be glad to get something from the list! The dog jewelry part is a joke, of course.

What Christmas gift would make you glad?

    I actually think Greger would look even more regal with a diamante encrusted collar! LoL! It would set of his beautiful coloring. :) [*CONFESSION: Yes, I’m 1.) a cat person, & 2.) the type to dress up her pets(or any animal since I love them all) in ostentatiously gaudy accessories(not too gaudy, of course)! *giggling* And, yes, as we grow older I do think we appreciated the holidays for their true meaning. Good list! =)

    Honestly, my one and only true wish is to get another *good* job like the last one that I had. I’m interviewing for 1 major one and one minor one this week, and although I’d love the first, I’d settle for the second. The rest of the “stuff” will come in time.

    You’re a girl after my own heart… I think the most fun part of gift-giving and recieving is seeing what someone else would choose for you, not the gift itself. Christmas is so much more fun with surprises!

    A thoughtful list! I luv the homemade request. Isn’t that missing these days, gifts from the heart!
    Just really lovely antonia!

    Oooh you should get some bling for Greger! No offence, but I think it would suit him:) I’ve never heard of that author. Is he good really?

    I got pearls last Christmas and it was so touching! :-) This christmas I just want baking things! And lots of time with my family and the bf :D Great list!

  7. Nicole Lisa says:

    Yeah, I would like the simply white pearl earrings and a necklace too… and you can never have too many nail polishes.
    But Greger should get all the dog jewelry he wants ;o) Plus I agree with Patricia, he would look much more regal with a diamond collar (real diamonds of course hehe)

    Please oh please let Greger get jewellery for Christmas. I swear that would just make my year!

    This year, I’m making Christmas cookies for our Christmas day hosts. It’s just a little something, but I know how much I’d appreciate being given something hand-made. I really like your list Antonia but more nail polish? You have enough to put Sephora out of business!!


    • Antonia says:

      How nice of you to make cookies for the hosts! Things like that are easy to do, but they mean so much for the receiver! Haha, I’ll check with Greger about the jewelery!

  9. simple white pearl earrings is my favorite – I have a pair and i wear them SO much.
