i cannot think of anything i want for christmas that my husband can buy me. i don't want jewelry, if i want any i want something expensive and we don't have the cash for that. i want pajama bottoms, but he scoffed at that along with more kitchen stuff (i love to cook and bake). he told me that he is definitley not getting me pots and pans for christmas-he thinks it's degrading. although to me i get giddy with glee at the thought of new pots and pans, and kitchen gadgets. i'm a nerd, i know.
what else is out there that wouldn't make him feel like he's telling me to put on an apron (something else i want, lol) get in the kitchen and MAKE HIM SOME SUPPER!!

I asked my partner not to get my anything but a sock. It's usually filled with candles, bath stuff, lottery tickets, a magazine and a few other trinkets.

I wouldn't turn down a duvet, new camera lens for my Nikon, or an Ipad though.

Loureen, I've gotten one facial in my life and it was the most amazing thing ever!

There's nothing that I really want. I'm terrible at picking gifts out for myself and even worse at picking for other people lol. My bf keeps asking me if I want jewlery and not only do I not even like fancy jewlery, I would just lose it or break so I told him not to waste his money. If he wants to spend that much money I asked for some new Uggs. I wear the ones I have now every single second and they have a huge hole in the toe. And they're pink... not a fan haha.

I want new cutlery.. we have like 2 forks and 3 knives that match, the rest are all different and it looks really strange when I break out the fancy dishes for dinner and use miss matched cutlery.
Beyond that? A bigger kitchen for more gadgets, but that will only happen if we manage to sell this damn house with the tinyest kitchen I have ever seen. I would really love a stand mixer since so many baking recipies I have would use one.. But I just don't have anywhere to store it.
Camping stuff, so I can drag my husband out camping, because I loved it as a kid, and want my kids to love it too...

Before my baby boy was born, I went to the nail salon religiously!

I have not been in so long…

So what I want is my own Acrylic nail set from Sally’s beauty store.

The nails, and acrylic will be pretty cheap, but it’s the tools that I want, that will run about 100-200$

I have gotten my nails done soo many times for years that I can do it myself, and also youtube helps a lot!

I have expressed this to my hubby so my fingers are crossed that I get it :-0)

my husband tells me i look like a cult member, and i would have to agree, lol! i've seen that video before (chad made sure to show it too me while i was wearing my snuggie, lol) and it's freaking hilarious!!

I can't imagine not wanting anything for Christmas! I have a bunch of things on my list...but we are taking it easy this year. We just got a very large breed puppy and he was supposed to be my gift. Other than that, I'm sure I'll get clothes, shoes, and a fixed focus lens for my camera.

Loureen I hope he makes it to Christmas too *hugs*
As for you ladies that have/want Snuggies... you are all losers :P

I would like a GPS. I have THE WORST sense of direction. Let's just say I got lost for 40 mins trying to find a town that is literally, 7 minutes outside of town..and I've been there dozens of times!!!
I would also like a Kobo. I always swore that I would never get anything like that because I love to hold an actual book (you ladies can attest to that lol), but I just recently suffered a loss of many of my books covers (thanks Brooklynn), and I think I am slightly jaded over it :(

I have no idea what I wanted so the hubby and I went away for a child free weekend last weeked and brought us some new clothes and had a lovely relaxing time. That was our Christmas prezzie to each other.

*hugs Loureen* I want that for you as well, I know how hard it is to have a family member going through that, I'll send my thoughts your way x

I always ask for stupid stuff because I can never really think of anything that I really want or need. Every year Chad gets me socks though...it started our first Christmass together and has survived throughout the years. I honestly don't remember why it started though...and I'm too embarrassed to ask.
I got a snuggie for Mother's Day and love it though :)

I want that for you too, Loureen. I'll keep you in my thoughts..

I move around too much to use a snuggie, I had one and gave it away cause I'm so short, it just pissed me off everytime I had to move. Seriously though Sara, PM me your address and I'll send you a snuggie for xmas!

I want that too, Loureen.

Rosie - posted on 12/04/2010




i'm wearing my snuggie right now!lol!
i have thought about a mani-pedi, or massage i just feel like it's so stereotypical. i did mention them to him though! IDK. keep em coming guys.

I'll get you a snuggie for Christmas Sara :) do you want red or blue? They're on sale for $10 right now lol

PS: your address would be handy too, so I could send it to you, unless you want me to use it for you :p

I really want a Snuggie. But when I mention that Jason says, "go buy one, they're only 20 bucks." But 20 bucks is a million to a mom!

Actually, the most wonderful gift would be a maid service!

well what if it is a really glamorous apron? maybe he could get you a super nice one with something sweet monogrammed on it? just an idea.

anyway here's MY list:

1. nursing shirts...i've never owned one and we just moved to a new house where it's too COLD to take off my shirt
2. SHOES!!!! Anything but heels, I'm afraid, very afraid!
3. Electric blanket (i've been asking for 10 years!)
4. Really expensive make up (I have never worn make up before except to proms, weddings, etc...)
5. Anything at all for our new house!!

I can't think of anything I want either. I don't think there actually really is anything that I want or need. I'm sure there's stuff for the kitchen or the house that we need and want... like tupperware... it ALWAYS disappears... but other than that, there isn't a damn thing I can think of that I want or need.

Are there any movies? A DVD player? PVR? A store you want to go shopping at that he can get you a gift card for? Lingerie? Your hair done? Your nails done? A massage? Dinner and dancing? A movie night where you catch the 6pm, 9pm & midnight shows?
