I’m posting this mostly as a reference and reminder to the man (who will swear right up until midnight on the 23rd that he has ages of time to do his shopping) – but also because I have not much else of substance to post, and on the off chance that the internets at large may want to buy me a gift (hey, a girl can dream, right?).
And so I present to you, after the jump, my wishlist for the Non-Denominational Consumer Orgy of Winter Spending 2006:
A new watch (Fossil) for to keep me on time and fashionable.
Some swanky leather gloves (Coach) for to keep my ridiculously cold hands warm – especially when I’m driving, since taking them off the wheel to thrust them at the man’s warm belly isn’t exactly a roadsafe activity.
An Instant read thermometer (Lee Valley Tools). I can not count the number of times I’ve cursed my lack of this handy gadget.
Cozy slippers for my chilly tootsies (La Senza). See ridiculously cold hands above – except these are to protect the man’s warm belly from sudden assaunts of icy toes at bedtime.
A little something to keep my brain occupied over the break from work (Amazon). I’m all for supporting people who’ve duped Oprah.
A little something pretty – preferably in a blue box (Tiffany). The iconic Jeweller of Breakfast At… fame just opened their Vancouver store, which is reason enough for celebration as far as I’m concerned!
Socks! (mec). Seriously, you have no idea how cold my feet get. These should help.
A new electric toothbrush (sonicare). My Oral-B bit the dust just last week, and while the manual brush is adequate, I miss the insanely clean feeling the mechanical brush brings to my pearly whites. According to my dentist, this particular brush is the shiz-nit.
This pretty, pretty dustbuster (Dirt Devil). I am still at war with the dog hair. I WILL NOT SURRENDER! This is the perfect weapon to add to my arsenal.
Some tunes to rock me through the day (Apple). Now that I’m back to being a transit commuter and have joined the ranks of the car-sharing, this is the perfect way to seamlessly bring my tunes wherever I may roam.
The gift of Goat! (heifer.org). I’ve always loved Heifer International’s programs. For those who have everything (and those who have nothing at the same time). Give the gift of goat! You’ll be glad you did.
What’s on your list this year?
