My Christmas Wish List

My husband and I don’t usually exchange Christmas gifts. Over the years it has been something that we just don’t do on a normal basis.

We used our resources to purchase gifts for our family and friends.

I am not accustomed to making a Christmas list, but when I read other blogger's list I always enjoy seeing what is out there that they would love to have.

So this year I thought I would try my hand at making a Christmas list…….

As I told you all before our family loves Christmas ornaments and they are very special to us. 

My DIL actually pinned these ornaments I am about to show you, and I thought they were so unique and a perfect gift for someone that loves design.....

 There is a whole collection of these wonderful ornaments depicting Frank Lloyd Wright's designs.

Another design related gift would be this gorgeous book written by Carolyne Roehm.

You have to admit this would look great for Spring/Summer bag! Love the bright pop of bright pink.

On a more practical note…….

I think these monogrammed coasters would be great to have on hand for guest to use.

Speaking of monograms, this monogrammed signet ring is a beauty.

I love anything with letters or numbers on it, so when I saw this next item I thought it would be a great addition to my wardrobe…..

This next items has words on it, and it is in white with black writing…..

Emma Bridgewater makes these darling white dishes with words written on them. I would love to have a few pieces.

Since we are in the dish department how about a pretty glass…….

I am not a drinker, but who says only champagne can go in a flute? These flutes are so festive and anything would taste better in them.

Since we are talking about something to drink out of how about these wonderful vintage French Latte bowls. Aren’t these beautiful? 

I can just feel them in my hands drinking my first cup of coffee in the morning.

This black and white striped blanket would be a welcome sight under the tree all wrapped up for me!!

A strand of Mikomoto pearls would be a dream come true for me. I love beautiful pearls, even more than diamonds.

So there you have it. Of course I do not expect any of these gifts, but I must admit it was pretty fun to make a Christmas list for the first time in decades.

Since this post was about gifts and it is the season of giving and receiving, I thought I would share something I read that resonated with me……….

I think this is something we all need to practice and to teach our children as they grow up.

How about you all, do have something really special on your wish list?
Merry Christmas!
