Today’s prompt is literally just to list ten things. About anything. My first thought was to list ten things I hate about working… but I think that’s just a bad day speaking. Instead, retail therapy to make myself feel better – 10 things I’d really love for Christmas.
1. A stand mixer
I’m not entirely sure why I want one of these, if I need it, or even if I have room for it. I don’t have a particular brand, style or colour in mind but I still would love one. Originally I could only see them for £200 upwards but this particular one is £79.99 from Amazon.
2. Lush gift box
I genuinely don’t care which one, I just picked this particular one as its the most expensive! £129.95 worth of Lush, who wouldn’t want that? If I was given the time to pick and choose, I’d have whichever one had the most bubble bars in (they’re my favourite), plus bath bombs and definitely NO soap.
3. Disney Traditions Ornament
I picked this particular ornament because its one that I’ve been wanting since my birthday. It retails around £40 and I just love it. However I collect these ornaments so any one would do. I also love this, this and this!
Would you believe I’m struggling to get past 3? No wonder my eldest is difficult to buy for!
4. Boutiquee Coat and Scarf
I featured this coat on my “Focus On: Joe Browns” post, back in September. It costs £79.95 and I know I would never buy it for myself. Its just beautiful though and I’ve been lusting after it ever since I made the post!
5. Quirky Nibble Cake Pan with Tasting Cup
This was such a random find but ever since seeing it, I’ve been in love with it. Basically you make a cake and pour an extra bit into the small cup part. Once its baked you get to try the cake without breaking it. Completely pointless but genius! I found it for sale on Amazon and its only £19.33.
6. Cupcake Decorating Lab
Also on Amazon is this awesome looking cupcake decorating book. I’m not particularly adventurous when it comes to decorating cakes and cupcakes but I would definitely like to get better. This book looks like it has some really good (and quirky) designs in it and I’m sure they’d come in handy with all the parties that get thrown around here. Its £13.59 and so for now it will just have to sit on my Wish List.
7. Rainbow Roses Vase
This is such a random thing to want, especially for Christmas, but I just think they’re so pretty. Roses are absolutely my favourite flower and these are so unique that I just think they’re beautiful. I saw them just before my birthday and they’ve been sat on my Wish List ever since. Not sure why really as its not like I’d buy them for myself. The rainbow roses are from Interflora and are a steal at £44.99 (eek!) with free delivery (which you would expect at that price!).
8. Daryl Dixon Plush
A childish want this time, but a want nonetheless. A Daryl Dixon plush from Forbidden Planet! I can’t exactly explain why I want this, but I do. I absolutely love Daryl to pieces (he’s from Walking Dead if you didn’t guess) and although its not a crush thing, I just think he’s awesome. Plushies seem the way to go in this house too, mine and Chris’ room are full of them! I would also love an Iron Man plush, though it would be better if it was actually a RDJ plush! N.B. I already have Thor!
9. Gas Cooker
I have no specific cooker in mind, but I really want a new one! At my last house in Saxilby, the rented accommodation came with a cooker. It was a beautiful 4-5 hob electric hob, with heated plate space too. There were two ovens, one of which was a fan oven and a space underneath for pots and pans. Here I have a gas cooker that has a top grill and a bottom oven. I can barely fit anything in it and it makes cooking nice meals difficult. This year Christmas is at our house and I’m absolutely dreading keeping everything hot. I’m even tempted to get a new cooker on HP, just to make Christmas easier. If someone bought me one, they would be my hero!
10. Disney Print
This final one was pretty tricky as I’d definitely run out of things on my Wish List by here. However I would love a Disney print of some sort. This one above is from an Etsy store and also sells several others I like such as this and this. However I also love the Thomas Kinkade prints that you can get like this one, this one, this one and this one.
Though I would also love a trip to Florida, a trip to Paris, tickets to see Phantom of the Opera, never to have to work again… I also know they’re not realistic Christmas presents. Hell even the cooker is pushing my luck! However these are just some of the things that I would love to get. My list of 10 Christmas Present things.
