Some people just have an innate ability to buy people good gifts. Due to my exquisite taste, I count myself amongst them… only kidding! I honestly don’t know whether I give good gifts or not, I mean people nod their heads and smile and hug and do all the polite things after receiving my gifts but I know I do the same thing, even if the gift I am holding is the last thing I wanted! I love my guy to bits but gifts are not his specialty. After one particularly disastrous (expensive) earing set, we decided to give each other Christmas lists. In the Spirit of Christmas or not, we have never looked back! My list usually consists of a few pie-in-the-sky silly things (like this year I put a Pashley Poppy Bike and a treadmill on my list… you know what they say, if you don’t ask you don’t get) and a lot of cheap little goodies so he can pick and choose according to what he can afford and what he likes. Do you give wishlists or do you trust your partner to get it right?
Here’s what my list is looking like this year:
1. Bespoke Map Heart; 2. Knitted Throw; 3. Candlestick; 4. Etsy Spoon Bracelet; 5. Barometer Table Lamp; 6. Kissing Birds Scarf; 7. Olive Cushion; 8. Bracelet Watch; I did this late last night so 9 seems to be missing…oops; 10. Zinc Heart Box; 11. Michael Kors Chronograph Watch; 12. Pashley Poppy Bike;
