My Christmas Wish List

I wasn’t going to right a Christmas wish list post but after some consideration I thought I would. Whenever anyone asks me what I want I always claim I don’t know. This isn’t totally untrue as I often get caught off guard and in the middle of something. My brain doesn’t engage. I have always had lovely presents over the years and have never been disappointed but I would be lying if I said I wouldn’t have got more use out of an alternative on some occasions. I hasten to add that none of this is aimed at Hubby. He has always excelled at Christmas presents for me. This is more aimed for him to read and to pass on to anyone who asks. We do Secret Santa in our family and this year I think my Mother in Law has me… I don’t know for certain but perhaps some of this will help her (or whoever actually has me). With that in mind I have tried to keep all ideas under the £30 limit that we have.

First up I really really want a Terrarium. I can’t keep plants alive no matter what I try. I think this is because I have a habit of forgetting to water them. Apparently that is vital to plant life? So with that in mind I think a plant like a succulent that required watering very occasionally I stand a fair chance of keeping alive. Plus having spent much of the past couple of weeks looking at them on Pinterest they look amazing! I have found one I really like on Amazon, plus they have kits with the stones, soil and plants to get you started.


Mine will never look like this! £15.99







Next up I fancy some nice face stuff. I had a little tester of this Nuxe exfoliator a while ago and it was so luxurious. It left my skin feeling so soft and clean. I would definitely like some more for Christmas.



Every year I love getting slippers. I don’t have any at the moment as mine haven fallen apart. Generally I love a boot style slipper with nice fluffy insides. I don’t mind a pattern on the outside but not too much bulky detail like bows. Accessorize do my favourite slippers.


Look at that pattern! £19


Oh so soft! £17

One of my all time favourite beauty brands is Cowshed. I flippin’ love them! So no Christmas list of mine would be complete without a little something from them.



As a self confessed M.A.C addict it would be rude not to put a couple of their products on here that I want. Look at this green pallet! This turns from a powder to a creamy texture according to their description, which sounds divine!



I have wanted this make up pallet for a long long time now and always forget about it. I think I now prefer the green one but who wouldn’t be happy with this smoky eye kit?



M.A.C also have some gorgeous lip kits, I am more of an eye makeup person but on nights out (Haha! Yeah right!) I love putting on some lippy so its nice to have in the draw.

Everyone who knows me, will know that this Apron by Parent Apparel was made for me! (It totally wasn’t but wouldn’t it been cool if it was). This definitely makes my Christmas list.



So there is my Christmas wish list.  I hope I have provided some inspiration to someone.

    Very inspiring. I’m off to write my list. I’ve often wondered how good those Cowshed products are – you’ve convinced me 🙂 Alison x #StayClassyMama

      They are honestly amazing! I love their horny cow and gorgeous cow smells but I started with a wild cow body lotion which was really nice. X

    This is a great Idea thank you for sharing I always say the same thing I don’t know what I want . I think I will write a list too.

    • November 26, 2016 / 8:41 am

      I feel I can definitely answer the ‘what do you want’ question now. It was good fun to write too. Thank you for reading, good luck with your list X

    That smokey eye kit looks fabulous! And I’ve tried a fair amount of Nuxe stuff in the past but not that exfoliator – will have to change that, it sounds great! You can’t beat a good pair of slippers for Christmas either – I got a lovely colourful pair last year that still have plenty of life in them, but I love those pink knitted boot ones – how could you not smile looking down at those?

      It all looks really great doesn’t it…. That exfoliator really is very good! Xx

    Hubby and I just got our Xmas pressies to each other today, it was kinda sad we just grab something we need/want and say ‘this is your xmas pressie from me’ lol. We are both so practical and frugal about buying for ourselves trying to surprise each other is not a good idea! x #sharingthebloglove

    • November 26, 2016 / 8:35 am

      Haha! I love that though. Sometimes there are just more important things X

    I keep meaning do a wish list for me because I did one for my birthday and 2 friends brought me things from it, winner!! I love those fluffy slippers and I am a MAC addict too. I’m off to write my wish list now. Thank you for joining us at #SharingtheBlogLove

    • November 28, 2016 / 8:32 am

      Oh well done friends! I’m a major MAC addict. I’m not sure I will get anything from the list but it was worth a try 😉 X

    • November 28, 2016 / 8:32 am

      I think it is probably my favourite spa brand X

    Great list – love the patterned slippers #stayclassymama

    • November 28, 2016 / 8:31 am

      They’re great aren’t they? X

    What a great list! We love the idea of the Terrarium, we’d love a really large one to put in our conservatory! #sharingthebloglove x

      Oh that would look great in a conservatory!
