Dear Santa...

I don't know about you, but I can always find things to include on my Christmas wishlist!  It helps that I add to my Amazon Wishlist year round when I think of something.  Here are this year's top items!

Booties - I'm finally ready to jump on the bootie bandwagon.  There are these, from Target, and then there are these Toms that are even better...and a tad more expensive.

Cast Iron Skillet - Despite living as an "adult" in a fully stocked kitchen for about eight years now, I don't have a cast iron skillet.  And there are a few recipes I have that suggest using one. Sounds like a perfect Christmas gift idea to me!

Plaid Scarf - I'm loving plaid scarves lately.  Especially the blanket kind.  Sadly, the minty-green and black scarf above is out of stock, but here (1 | 2 | 3) are some other options!

Puffer Coat with Fur - Let's get one thing straight - I hate coats.  But maybe this cute puffer style will help?

White Porcelain Cake Stand - I think this was on my list last year.  And maybe even the year prior, too?  Who doesn't need a cake stand?  I mean, I know I would use this once or twice per year!

Watch - Weird fact about me - I can't wear nice watches.  I'm allergic to the metal and break out from them.  My cheap alternative broke this fall and I never replaced it, so Christmas sounds like a good time to do so!

Ice Bucket - Another random item that my kitchen is lacking!  And it sure would be a nice addition for party hosting!

Starbucks Tumbler - I bought my first Starbucks coffee to-go mug/tumbler this fall.  It's seriously amazing how long it keeps my coffee hot!!  I use the same one everyday, so a backup would be ideal!

Ribbon Hair Ties - Have you seen these hair ties?  So, so cute!  They tie around your wrist and double as an adorable bracelet.  They are super cheap...perhaps a good stocking stuffer?

Mini Loaf Pan - I'd love one of these to make mini loaves of bread to give as gifts.

Hawkeye License Plate - My current one is fading and I'd love a new one to show my Hawkeye pride down here in KC!

Herringbone Vest - These are all the rage right and my wardrobe needs one.  Old Navy has a cute option, but my size is never in stock.  I may just break down and buy one from

KitchenAid Mixer - And then there's this.  I know, I know, I still don't have one.  Which is crazy for someone who likes baking/cooking as much as me.  Maybe someday...


  1. I need to make a list like this for my hubby. He tries so hard but it just doesn't happen haha I have been eyeing the starbucks to go cups (but I love the glass ones) I have been dropping hints, we'll see if he notices!

  2. I have those hair ties!! I ordered a 20 pack on Etsy for about $10.
