Adult Christmas List

Postby Sparkle2217 » Sun Dec 09, 2012 7:56 pm

Heard this song a few times today and it had me thinking? What do adults actually want for Christmas? Everybody is always focused on the kiddies but hey what about us adults LOL.

Soooooooooo what do you guys want for Christmas?

last year was the FIRST year EVER that i did not tell my parents what i wanted. seriously it was the best year. I don't normally ask for a whole lot each year, so I usually get what I ask for. it was so much fun having my gifts be a surprise.
I guess there was one thing i suggested, which was gift certificate for massage and I did get a year of free massages (one every other month) - my last one is on the 21st.

Stocking stuffers I ask for makeup...

Things I like to ask for are stuff I would probably not buy myself (ie a little more than i can afford). This year I'm getting an ipad because I made a comment back in January about how I was the only family member who did not have a tablet lol (my 2 nephews ages 4 & 7 have ipads) so my dad was like "well.... if you happened to get one next year.. what would you like??"

things in the past have been perfume.... new cameras.... sheets....my brother always gets me gift certs to a couple different places.

I never ask. Hubby and I do not exchange gifts but I help the kids pick out something for their dad and he does the same for me. I know what I would ask for if money were no object, a nook or e-reader, a smart phone, or a new serger. Of course, I would love to have our families out to visit. We miss them so much!

However, money is an object lol so I will ask for nothing and will probably get a new bird ornament for the tree, chocolate, and perhaps some bubble bath. Given and received with love! :)

I love what everyone has put. It's the simple things. I actually want a pair of those really comfy thick socks LOL. Not the ones you can actually wear with shoes but the ones you wear around the house.

I really am having a hard time this year probably the usual stuff pjs, cookbooks, and cannot think of much else. My husband usually gets me a surprise gift along with the others but he is even stumped (or so he says). I asked for a nap and by nap I mean no waking up until I am good and ready...no deadline to be at an activity just a long long long nap.

A nap undisturbed sounds great. We all need that.

My wife and I got each other new tablets this year. I told her a few things I wanted, a new circular saw, an OTA antenna for the house so I can watch "local" news that actually covers local stories, rather than politics. (There's a station in GSO that has our local news).

I bought my own gift this year....kindle paperwhite. My hubby is usually a last minute shopper and doesn't always catch on to the hints I drop him or LEAVE on the computer screen for days. That's really what I wanted and knew when I saw in stock I better get it while I can. Last year I wanted a fire but since he shops so late he couldn't find one and he said after I bought the kindle paper white he was planning to buy me a tablet which I dont need since the kids are getting them this year so it was good I went ahead and bougth it last week. I'm really excited about it and ya know it's about to drive me crazy saving it for Christmas day.
