Though it’s not quite Thanksgiving yet (a holiday I adore deeply), it is time to begin thinking about Christmas shopping! I actually love to give gifts way more than I like to receive them. Don’t get me wrong, I love getting gifts from loved ones, but giving personalized and meaningful gifts and surprises is one of my favorite things in the world. I’ve been corralling ideas for Christmas gifts to give for months… and I also like to start compiling my own Christmas wish list early on in the year, just so I don’t forget anything – and so I only ask for things I’ve been wanting for a while! My family has been asking for each others’ Christmas wish list, and I thought it might be fun to share mine here. I already have more than I need, that’s for sure, but these are some fun extras that I’ve been eyeing. In the spirit of Christmas and in the season of giving, I’ll be sharing more of my Christmas spending and giving plan with you soon! Tis better to give than to receive, don’t you think?!
[clockwise starting at the top]
1. a pretty new bike + helmet
4. a lemon tree
7. a hunter green Longchamp with my monogram
8. Garden and Gun magazine subscription to read alongside by beloved Southern Living
9. a bar cart
11. a new set of dinnerware (white with raised dots along the edges)
And just as a fun dream… a huge splurge/ultimate Christmas wish would be to attend Making Things Happen!
I would love to hear – what’s on your Christmas wish list? Who are you most excited to give to this year? Shopping for my sister is one of the most fun things to do (it’s hard to stop!), in my opinion. And what are your favorite ways to give back during the holiday season (and throughout the year)? Please fill me in!
