I shop for myself year-round, so if I hadn't gotten these within the last several months already, I'd get them for myself for Christmas, ha!

  • Chefman Digital Air Fryer, Dehydrator, Rotisserie Combo
  • Kitchenaid 9-cup food processor
  • Levoit Core 300 True HEPA Air Purifier
  • Kitchen tools: Zester, citrus squeezer, 1 wooden spoons, dipping bowls
  • Cookware: Wok, skillet, knife, big mixing bowl
  • ZeroWater water filter dispenser
  • Mattress topper
  • Jersey bedsheets
  • Bedspread
  • Essential oils
  • DVD movies
  • Various COVID supplies (masks, alcohol, hand wipes, hand soaps, etc.)
  • 10 beautiful sweaters
  • 6 crossbody bags
  • 3 pairs of cargo jogger pants (slate, green, & merlot)
  • 5 pairs of yoga pants (3 black, olive green, & turquoise)
  • 10 cute tops, all 1 style (got all 10 colors they carried)
  • 4 V-neck t-shirts
  • 3 long-sleeve tops (pima cotton)
  • PJ set
  • 2 pairs of earrings
  • 4 hatwear: 3 visors & 1 really wide-brimmed hat (really back during summer)
  • Jeans


FUTURE(if at all):

I'd maybe like to get a new TV...a 4K Smart TV of at least 43"...probably Samsung. But my current 32" Panasonic TV's still perfectly good.

Well...for years I've wanted a room redone in the house and finally that's happening, new paint, carpet and furniture just ordered yesterday

Other than that, I'm not used to asking for something but I saw some comfy ugg slippers that look wonderful.

About a year ago I went through a spate of losing earrings or just one earring, which is practically the same. Not sure if the universe was trying to tell me something. Santa will bring me a lovely pair from Three Pines and another that might be silver and turquoise.

I just realized with this post that I'm probably getting nothing this year. I told my sister and brother that we should just do the kids this year so I won't get anything. I don't really need anything, so that's ok. Maybe I'll buy myself something special.

Nothing.

There is nothing we want or could use. We just purged, downsized, moved, shopped for new furniture. We didnít have no room for anything.

HDís kids insist on getting us something. I suggested a gift basket from David and Harry or Omaha Steaks.

I do not need a thing, and have no place to put anything anyway. Peace on earth, good health, happiness for my family. That's about it.

We've decided that none of us need anything (kids are 19 and 23), so we are going to spend 2 nights at our favorite beach resort-Christmas Eve and Christmas night.

For a change, I didn't have any trouble coming up with a list this year!

A vacuum (going to be our big gift from my parents)
A utensil crock
Craft supplies (Project Life scrapbooking)
A small offset spatula
Stasher bags
A new pair of sneakers or Toms shoes
New sheets
A serving platter
A new laundry hamper
A knife rack
Books (I really want Alex Trebek's memoir)
A ball cap (I know DH bought me and DD matching ones)

I do not expect to get all of it, but I actually had ideas this year! I also have a birthday in November so I might get a few things then.

I just moved from full time Rving to a house again. My list definitely has a theme.
1. Used rocking chairs for my firing porch that I could repaint- my son and daughter-in-law bought me these yesterday.
2. Used sewing machine
3. Mixing bowls with lids
4. White Corelle dishes
5. Crock pot
6. Glassware


My husband and I just bought a new Jeep - thatís our Christmas present to each other.

I asked for a lamp to go over my headboard for reading, a car cover for the back seat of my new SUV for the dog, and a 13 X 9 pan by Lock and Lock that has a lid to cover it that snaps on.

We are cleaning out in preparation of severely downsizing. I do not want anything else coming in to the house. What I would love- but know that it won't happen, would be for either one of our daughters to be home, or for us to go to them, which also can't be done at this time.

Practical things this year -

Soda stream for sparkling water
Possibly an air fryer
A new sports bra
Pocketed leggings
Long pullover for walking
Gloves.

My DH will tell me I don’t want or need at least 1/2 of my list. I asked for a new slow cooker for 3 years in a row. If I take the time to write it down, I want it.

I ordered a new kindle and 3 new small weaving looms. My family is not the best at buying for me. I always get a few things for myself while I’m shopping for others
