What's On My Christmas List

I still owe Christmas lists to my mom and my mother-in-law and ... I'm the worst at putting these together. I can pick out cutesy-wootsey things all day long for my girls, and I promise I'm not trying to be a martyr, but there's just not a lot that I really want for. 

I love my house. I love the way it's decorated. I love crafting and craft supplies but I like picking out my own ribbon. I love makeup and LipSense but I buy that for myself using my wholesale discount. I love clothes and jewelry, but I am also kinda crazy about wearing something until it's almost too far gone to donate. I'm not a "wear once" girl. And my sister Laura makes my favorite jewelry so I get a lot of my wishlist items from her.

So here's what actually made the cut this year -- maybe you have some ideas for me, too?

Swarovski 2017 Ornament
I've been collecting these since 2002 and I've amassed quite the gorgeous collection! I display them on a gold metal tree from Pier 1.

NOW ... super duper important -- I just spotted that these are the Amazon deal of the day which means that they are $27.50 down from $79! We spend $79 on these every single year (and my mom buys a few of them) so this is huuuuuge. Find the deal HERE. This would also be such a perfect keepsake ornament for anyone who had a big 2017 -- new house, new job, new baby, engagement or marriage!

Between The Tipsy Bunny hairbows I make and sell and LipSense products, I'm mailing out packages every single day. I have my computer and packaging supplies at the dining room table (sorry, Martha Stewart, but my Christmas tablescape leaves a little to be desired) and I run back and forth to Ian's office to print out mailing labels. It's getting a little old and I'm burning through his printer ink like crazy. SO, a $160 label printer isn't normally what I would get all of the heart eyes over, but I want this so bad.

HERE is where I need your help. I know there are websites out there to find the best deal online. I just know we can get this for less -- right? Does anyone have any insight into what website I need to track this on? 

This is the perfume I found out about from my brother-in-law's girlfriend and it smells HEAVENLY. You can find it on Amazon Prime and ever since I smelled it, I knew I needed it in my life.

Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca for Women By Guerlain Eau De Toilette Spray, 3.3 ounces

My girlfriend group-texted us about these jammies the other day and on my list they go! I recently bought these Santa pajamas in XS from the Target (PLEASE do me a favor and wash yours first in ice cold water ... I did not) and I do love them, but I want these to wear year-round. And of course I love the animal print tie at the waist!

YES I am asking for laundry detergent this year (and again I swear I'm not trying to be a martyr "oh I just need not a thing please just a little laundry soap for this dear girl would make my yearrrr" LOLOLOL).

But y'all, the ladies in a local Facebook moms group I'm in swear that this stuff makes your laundry smell amazing, and it's not something I would really buy on just a normal Tuesday. So on the Christmas list it goes. I won't use it for kiddie socks and Ian's gym clothes, but every time I run a load of MY laundry, you better believe it will get the royal treatment. 

Other than that, I just want all of the good holiday stuff. Egg nog and fruitcake (which I picked up Monday), Amy Grant Christmas music, some classic Christmas movies, and pictures of my girls on Santa's lap. 

Again -- if you can help me with what website I need to go to for tracking that Dymo label printer I'll be your bestie!

What's on YOUR list?

Thank you for your support of my blog.
Merry Christmas, y'all!


  1. Amy Grant Christmas music FOR LIFE!

    (I was *thisclose* to asking for a new electric toothbrush because mine is old but then was like eff it, faux fur vest it is. I need some luxury in my life!)

  2. How do the PJ's compare to Soma? I am thinking about ordering these for my mom this year since I like the colors better.

  3. I have heard such great things about that laundry detergent. What a great idea to put it on your list!

  4. You should contact Dymo and offer to do a review for your businesses on your blog. I know a ton of your followers have their own home businesses and perhaps that could be a good perk to get a free one to try out.

  5. Haha! I love your list! I'm a very practical 'gift asker'. This year was socks from J Crew, new electric toothbrush (we went with Quip - love the auto refills!), and all of my special toiletries that I'm running out of.
    I am going to check those PJ's out.....

  6. Love this practical list!! I'm all about what I need more than what I want for Christmas these days.

  7. I have those pajamas and they are my absolute favorites!! What a great list. I want to try that detergent too!

  8. Pajamas are on my list too. Thanks for the reminder to wash in ice water first

  9. You've tempted me with this ornament collection for at least two-three Christmases. This year is the year to dive in, I love this tradition. :D

  10. I recently discovered the website for checking price history on Amazon items. Check it out, it's pretty interesting but does not give current price comparisons from different websites that I could find.

  11. Totally have those pajamas....they are my favorite. So soft and comfy. I loved them so much I bought them in red too. :)

  12. I am the same way with making lists for myself. I'm so focused on checking off my own shopping lists, I always leave everyone else hanging... but truly, I don't need or want for much at all. PJs are such a great gift, and I can see a label maker coming in handy!

  13. You'll have to let me know how you like that printer! I'm getting tired of running to the post office to ship out orders - what kind of at-home shipping service do you use?

  14. What popular perfume can you compare the guerlain one to? Does it remind you of another perfume that's more mainstream? In the market for a new perfume but I'm weary of purchasing before smelling it. I have that laundry detergent and my husband hates it.

  15. I bought the perfume from Amazon based on your review. It arrived today. I really like it! A very unique scent. Thanks for the recommendation! I love your blog! ~Kasey
