Oh gosh, this is my list that will be winnowed down, or maybe it won't. Maybe I'll put it out there and see what people want to get me I haven't picked out the specifics for anything yet.
-black leather sneakers -oven mitt -slippers -gift card (sephora, zara, loft, audible) -a very soft open cardigan for lounging -a journal/notebook for work -paleo cookbook -snow pants -desk calendar -a downy/not so puffy winter jacket -snow pants -starter knitting supplies -and one day I will get my mother's ring, but it is too expensive to make this Christmas
I know I am getting an antique jewelry box that looks like it should be doll furniture. I love it. I bought it at a craft fair a month ago and gave it to DH to hide until Xmas. He keeps teasing me, but I think I made his job really easy

H & I rarely exchange gifts for any holidays. We agreed to do something this Christmas and now I can't think of anything to ask for. Part of me wants to be adulty and practical, but part of me wants to do actual fun gifts for once. So I'll just make two lists
Kuerig (my mom is getting this for me) Gift card (photographer, mani/pedi, spa day) Apple Watch - thought about this but have almost changed my mind Roomba - but I can't see spending that much on a vacuum.
Adulty (ie, boring):
New living room furniture (sectional and recliner) Save the money and put it towards the addition we want
H and I don't usually exchange gifts, we usually agree on an experience or two that are our "gift" however my family does do gifts, we'e in a decluttering phase, and I feel like my wardrobe has gotten a decent refresh this year, so there's not a lot on my list for myself, and this year most seems to be cycling related:
I'd love This bike seat so LO can go out on bike rides with us. I'd also love to get some hybrid wheels/tires that I can interchange with the road tires on my bike And I'd love to get a bikejoring set-up for the dogs (not to be used with LO in tow) we skijor in the winter, so we've got the dog harness/lines already, just need the conversion to make it work on a bike.
I'm sure my list will grow once we've bought a new house.
I'm so lame. The only thing on my list so far is a cast iron skillet. I know that MH and our parents will want a list. I think I'll tell them gift cards - for clothes, massage, mani/pedi, housewares - but I know them and they'll want to buy physical gifts. Usually if I can't think of things I need/want that I don't have, I start looking at things I've got already that could use refreshed/upgraded.. I need to do that before they start asking.
My favorite gifts I've received in recent years were a case of wine (all different kinds - it was fun to branch out and try things I normally wouldn't) and a year of monthly house-cleanings.
On the flip side, for once I'm not having a hard time coming up with ideas for most of the people in my life, and have lists started for each!
I kind of want a Samsung Gear, but I'm pretty positive H got me a Roomba during my 30% off shop at BB&B a couple of weeks ago, so I can't ask for something else expensive.
I really have no idea what I want. We're going to be super house poor, so I'm hoping that (besides the already purchased roomba, as I presume) we keep Christmas light this year. We both have a tendency to a get little shop happy.

He bought me a gucci bag last christmas but I really need something bigger. I really don't care about the brand but he likes the higher end so I am happy to oblige. I just want bigger. I had two big coach bags that worked so something similar would be nice. Any suggestions? I need like big enough that I could fit my laptop if crammed in big.
Shoes. Definitely need shoes.
Riding tall boots. Ones I bought last year suck and the zipper keeps falling. So I need a new pair that fits and does what I need it to do. So Ariats probably.
Oh, and most importantly, a baby that figures out how to sleep through the night. Yep, that is really all I need. lol
