I agree but anybody who really truly agrees with this is contradicting themselves because everybody receives and expects Christmas gifts because that's partly the tradition of Christmas: gift giving.

anyways, I don't want anything for Christmas but if somebody's going to give me something then they can give money..

I had a lot of the MAC holiday cosmetics on my wishlist, but I always buy those things myself (I did this time as well.. I actually don't even show my 'list' to anyone. It's on my computer and you need a password to open it.)
Also, I wanted the BonBon box from Bond no 9 and it should arrive in a couple of days since I ordered it from Harrods.


From my mother I would prefer to see her use the gifts I got her, instead of giving me anything. I know she can't afford it right now. But I bought her a lot of things for Sint Nicolas (dec 5th, Dutch tradition) and I hope she'll use them this Christmas.
From my sister I already received cash a gift, which I could use desperately. And actually that only leaves my boyfriend...

I would like something from him, but I don't really care what it could be. Anything he'd pick for me will do. Can be something I can use, but chocolates would also make a nice treat.

I got him a Jack daniels chess set and Jack Daniels candy with a Jack daniels miniature (the drink itself) in a handmade personalized stocking! I'm excited to give it, though I'm not even sure he'll like it.
So I think I worry about the giving more (of which I have a list as wel...lol)

I can think of one thing I'd like, but CAN'T buy myself and that is actually a dress for the holidays.
Apologies for the long post*

So as long as we are heathy we are not allowed to celebrate anything or have fun because health is the only thing worth being thankful for?
I am so excited about buying presents for other people, that is what Christmas is to me. if I really want something I will buy it for myself not put burdens on other people to buy it for me. over the holiday period I try and do some chrity work and help people out, for example last year a family friend had a bit of a financial crisis with the recession and such, whereas I had significant spending money. So what I did was buy her 5 year old daughter a load of presents and sent them to her full wrapped so all she had to do was put them under the tree for Molly to open on Christmas morning, yet I still make a wishlist. I think its a bit unfair to paint everyone with the same brush, that is all
So, back on topic my wishlist consists of;
a new LCD tv for my room
Stella McCartney 7 day undies
Things to decorate my room like vases and cashmere throws and such.
A dior scarf because I am making an art sort of thing out of it
GPS because I get lost every time I get in the car
makeup and skincare stuff from the higher end brands.
one of thise really good chess sets (not like the cardboard ones)
lots of books.

How much of this do I want other people to get me? 0% I'm buying it all for myself.

Hoping this year will be good company and food, my last Christmas wasn't all far too great in that area (Bizarre winter storm had most of my relatives not contacting each other at our family's home.)

Not much else but clothing and cosmetics. I would love a new messenger bag and some Chanel products I've been looking at for a while.
