Food is always on my holiday wishlist. Gingerbread, cookies, breads, cakes, chocolates, and other holiday yummies. Everyone knows that's my preferred physical gift and I do buy it for myself.

I keep a curated wish list through the year to keep track of things for sales. Usually if I wait long enough, about half the list will be removed when I decide I don't *really* want them. Sometimes I will share with friends but usually I prefer not to, I'm old enough to buy my own things :)

Nothing fun on my list this year, a diaper bag, tea kettle, shower curtain, wellies, lol, I'm boring. I share my list if someone asks for it, and I usually don't buy things from my own list. Merry Christmas!

Our holiday lists (and the beginnings of a wedding registry for later in 2016...) include Goal Zero products for easy solar energy, a nice knife set (Chef knife, bread knife, and steak knives only), and gift cards for restaurants.

Would love a GoPro camera for Christmas! Though if I don't get one as a gift, I'll probably wait until the prices drop.

The only things that are on my wish list are what everyone should have on their wish list: The end of abject poverty, the end of hateful ignorance, and the end of cruelty to animals.

I would love a nice winter coat. I seem to be lacking a decent one this year...

What I really want is the gift of good health since 2015 has been a rough year for me medically. On the slightly more tangible side I would like to travel more this year since I really enjoy that more than having stuff. If forced to choose material goods I could use a new wallet and some new towels for the household. At the holidays I'm usually more concerned with giving than receiving, and I like spoiling my pups.

I would love some new jewelry!

I have a short mental list of things I need, in case I find something in a thrift store or for a great price. But mostly that list gets whittled down as I realize I don't really need most things. For that reason, I'll hold off and not just go out and buy most things.
