Year after year I find the most difficult question people ask me is “what do you want for Christmas?”, and I wish I was kidding when I admit that to you. I never know what to say! So last year I made a wish list and decided to this year, too. I’ve been trying to take mental notes of things I want for the past few months so I can compile them into this handy post. At the very least it was fun to do. At the most, it’ll help my family shop for me, OR it’ll help YOU find something perfect for someone you’re gift hunting for.
Lets work our way from top to bottom, shall we?
aromaGem Ultrasonic Nebulizer in Chrome from Sajé
I have the oils, I am good to go on oils.. but GUYS, cold and flu season is HERE. So I desperately need a diffuser/nebulizer. The ones that the main companies (doTERRA, Young Living, etc) sell are just so blah looking. But Sajé makes ones that are really pleasing to the eye and look like a piece of art, so they won’t stick out like a sore thumb. It was tough to choose between chrome, gold, or black, but I love the shine of the chrome!
Mario Badescu Facial Spray + Mario Badescu Buffering Lotion
My dear friends Meg and Lesley who are beauty bloggers recommended these products to me for skin care. Two recommendations from friends is a lot when there are so many skin care lines to choose from! I am really excited to start babying my skin. I mean.. I’m almost 30, guys. 30! Gotta get on the wrinkle prevention boat!
Now Designs Floursack Teatowel Set
I’ve been drooling over these for a while, I love the colour palette. Well.ca is the only place I can find them reasonably priced. I’d ideally like 2 packs (hint hint Michael!). Floursack towels are the BEST for drying dishes. They’re lint-free, dry quickly, and don’t shrivel up when washed. I am floursack towel obsessed, you could say..
J.A. Henckels Classic 8-inch Chef’s Knife
This is one of the best chef knives out there (apparently) for a reasonable price. I’m a big sucker for reviews – maybe because I write my own reviews, so I understand the thought that goes into them. But everyone seems to speak highly of this knife, and I REALLY need a good chef’s knife. My knives are SO dull and cheap (they’re from Ikea, from years ago, and have never been sharpened). When I try to cut carrots for soup they pretty much just break into odd shaped chunks and fly across the kitchen! Since I cook and use a knife almost every day, this is a big time need for me! PLUS it’s on sale for $27.99 (reg. $92)! Seriiiiously. Great deal.
Stress Release diffuser blend by Sajé
I need this for diffusing while I am writing in bed at night. That’s all. Just wanna release the stress. Ommmm…
A really gorgeous engagement ring..
I snuck one into my Christmas list last year.. May as well again 😉
Lucky Iron Fish
My sister in law told me about this and I really want (or need, really) one! Lucky iron fish are fish-shaped cast iron ingots used to provide dietary supplementation of iron to people living in poverty who suffer from iron-deficiency anaemia. The fish are placed in a pot of boiling water to leach elemental iron into the water and food. They were developed in 2008 by Canadian health workers in Cambodia, and in 2012 a company called The Lucky Iron Fish Project was formed to develop the iron fish on a larger scale, promote them among rural areas, and distribute them to non-governmental organization partners. For every fish you buy, they donate one to a family who needs it. It’s fantastic. I need help with my iron levels, as many, many people do, and this is a great way to help that!
Ceramic Berry Basket
I honestly don’t care if its this basket, or another basket, or even if it’s white or aqua or yellow.. I have just wanted a ceramic berry basket for SO LONG, and I cannot find them in Canada for a reasonable price. ALL THE TEARS.
Wire Egg Basket
I also really want a wire egg basket. I am so obsessed with wire baskets.. This one is on sale for only $12.99!
Big Blue Bath Bomb by Lush
Big Blue is my favourite of all bath bombs. It makes the tub look like a luscious ocean with its beautiful aqua colouring. Heart eyes.
White Hemnes Bed Frame by Ikea
Right now our mattress is on the floor. Our previous bed frame was given to us and while we appreciated it, it was too big and causing us frustration and physical pain (it had an edge that stuck out and Mike constantly banged his knees and toes on it). I’d like to replace it with the Hemnes bed frame because it matches our dresser and our other white bedroom furniture. And honestly, I’m just tired of sleeping so far down on the floor!
AND HOW DID I FORGET THIS?
Cards Against Humanity
I need this game. Frankly I have no idea how I don’t already have this game. I also have no idea how I forgot it on my list, but here it is! My honourable mention. The best game I have ever played.
SO there you have it. My Christmas Wish List. I’d love to know your thoughts on the products I mentioned. Have you tried any? Do you want any of these things for Christmas, too?
Stay tuned for more gift guide goodness this week!
