Last year, hubby and I decided against presents. We only bought gifts for our daughter, god kids and friends. There was literally nothing we can think of that we wanted to ask from each other. It’s still the same this year but we made a list anyway, just to give each other something – no matter how small.
So here is my Christmas/Birthday wish list – a reference guide to whoever wanted to give me presents for Christmas and my birthday.
Kobo voucher – I have a Kobo ereader so any other book voucher won’t help me. Also, I don’t do paperbacks anymore. I know others who love the feel and smell of it. I do too but my OCD persists and even today I cannot read a book without worrying about whether or not I’m scratching the cover or folding the pages. When I do find a crease, I get very agitated. I know. It’s insane. So I’m sticking to ebooks.
Make up – I realised quite recently that 90 percent of the make up I own is six years old – my daughter’s age. I didn’t even know they have expiry dates. My target is to find one good make up kit with everything in it. I hate having separates. I rarely use make up but it would be good to have ones that won’t cause skin infection.
Garmin vivofit/vivosmart – Although I love my Fitbit, I’m at that point where I need more for my running. Yes, I am running and preparing for a 10k fun run next year with my biatches. The Vivofit would…er…fit my needs. The thing is, I got this for free already. Still, it was on my list.
Cooking lessons voucher – I am putting a big question mark on this. I can cook. Hubby says 95 percent of the time my cooking works. That five percent, however, isn’t just cooking fails, but cooking epic fails. I want to do a cooking lesson not just to increase my repertoire but to inspire me again. I’ve been detesting cooking the last couple of months. Instead of becoming enjoyable, it’s become tedious and a giant chore. I want to reignite that passion again. Maybe a cooking lesson will help. French preferably.
Lingerie voucher – You raise your eyebrow but I need this. Most of the time, when it’s just me shopping on my own, my practical side wins over and I end up buying the practical bra and undies rather than the sexy ones. Not to say I don’t have any but I would like to increase the number of lacy ones. The problem is they are bloody expensive and I just can’t justify buying these things. A voucher for a nice lingerie place would force me to do this.
Lastly, maybe more kindness towards others, less selfies, consumerism and self obsession, and a dash of world peace.
