Christmas List

I have a problem, you guys. Every year I struggle with the same thing. I LOVE shopping for other people. I love the hunt for a perfect gift, I love to wrap and I love watching people's face when they open a present. Big, small, doesn't matter, I really enjoy gift giving. I start Christmas shopping in the summer and spend months budgeting, perusing, stock piling things for everyone for Christmas. I scour Ebay, get coupons, hit the sales. I love it.

But. Here's the problem...

I never know what to ask for for myself. Dave gets "mad" at me every year because I wait until the last minute and the list I give him always adds up to exactly whatever our budget is that year. He wants a list with lots of options so he can surprise me. (What a good man, that David. :))
I have nothing on my list this year except Bridesmaids. (haha) So give me some suggestions! What are your favorite electronics? Movies? TV seasons on DVD? What jewelry should I have? What's number one on your list this year? Help a sister out! :)

Check out Pinterest. I've started making my list on Pinterest so I can send it to my husband and he can pick what he wants. A Nook Color is on my list for this year, as are some Vera Bradley items.

I have the same problem and last year there was really only 2 or 3 things I wanted, lol... The only thing I *really* want this year is the Harry Potter 8-movie box set as I haven't bought any of the Harry Potter movies for this exact reason - I knew there would be a set after the last movie and I wanted it. It comes out around Thanksgiving I believe, so just in time for Christmas!

Other than that, there's nothing else I really *have* to have this year.

Omigosh. I am the one who ALWAYS has a list!!! My sister is like you, she never has an idea and hates it!! Off the top of my head, I really want a La Mer wrap watch and a Michael Kors watch. I guess it's an accessory kind of Christmas ;-) Ohh! And I want a seeing machine too!!
