What Do I Want For Christmas This Year? Ideas for Your Christmas List
So now that I’ve gotten a chance to give you ideas for what to get everyone on your list this year – it’s my turn to share gift ideas for me 😉 So, what do I want for Christmas this year? Not too many things, to be honest. As I get older, I don’t really feel the need to ask for gifts for Christmas – unless it’s something I actually need. And also, once you become an adult you realize that you can buy yourself things, which is nice, but it definitely takes the fun and magic out of Christmas! Would you agree?
Anyway, in the spirit of Christmas, especially in a year as insane as 2020, I decided I’d pull together a list of gifts I wouldn’t mind getting this year. My loved ones have been asking me what I want for Christmas and I haven’t given them any ideas, yet! If you’re in the same boat as me, I’m sure this list will help you come up with ideas for what you want for the holidays too.
Speaking of gifts, what was the best gift you’ve ever gotten? I’d love to know in the comments 🙂
Oh BTW, have you checked out my holiday gift guides? I’m going to be adding to them throughout the month of December, so make sure you take a look at them if you’re looking for some gift ideas! Let me know if you have any specific gift guide requests! I love finding the perfect gift and I’d be happy to help you do the same for anyone on your list.
What Do I Want for Christmas – Skincare
Lord Jones CBD Bath Salts
I’m already a huge believer in the benefits of taking CBD – so why not try soaking my whole body in it? These Lord Jones bath salts are infused with CBD and are supposed to help with chronic pain. My back is always hurting because of the way I sit when I work from home. I love taking an Epsom salt bath, but I feel like these CBD bath salts will take my bath to the next level.
A Vanilla Scented Lip Balm
I’ve had my eye on the Summer Fridays Lip Balm all year. Not only is the packaging super chic, but it’s formulated with shea butter, which I love. I always have super dry skin because I’m on tretinoin and I could really use a lip balm like this!
A New Cleansing Oil
I came across the Innisfree Green Tea cleansing oil while browsing Sephora’s website and it looks super promising. I love cleansing oils so much, and I like that this one has green tea in it to soothe skin. I’ve never tried anything from Innisfree so I think this would be a good foray into their brand.
What Do I Want for Christmas – Beauty
New Year, New Perfume
I know I can’t be the only one who uses different perfumes for different stages of life? I feel like every year I like to get a new perfume to add to my rotation. This year, I fell in love with two gorgeous scents (thanks to perfume samples) and can’t decide which full size I want… it’s so hard to pick!
The Valentino Voce Viva perfume stood out to me because it’s sweet but sexy at the same time – and Lady Gaga is the face of it, so it just makes it a million times better. And YSL Libre is another scent I fell in love with this year because it’s such a sexy warm scent that gets so many compliments. I wouldn’t mind adding either to my fragrance collection.
A new foundation
Although wearing foundation is kinda pointless right now because we all are wearing masks, I’d still like one to wear when I feel like doing my makeup and taking selfies! I’ve already tried Rare Beauty blush and concealer, but I’d love to give the foundation a try. It seems lightweight and that’s what I always look for in a face product!
What Do I Want for Christmas – Style
A Fresh Pair of Slippers
So I already have a similar pair of these super cute and cozy slipper sandals. But mine are so flattened out because I wear them literally every. single. day. I would love to get a fresh new pair so my feet can be cozy while I work from home! The white color is cute, but I have my eye on the camel color – it’s chic!
A New Hat
Okay, I don’t know why it took me this long to become obsessed with wearing hats. I love how much they can elevate your look and the wide range of options tha are out there. Lack of Color makes super high-quality hats, and I would love to add one to my hat collection.
Some new bracelets for stacking
I really upped my jewelry game this year – I got rid of all my old, rusted silver pieces from high school and beyond and have been sticking to gold and gold plated jewelry. I have a lot of necklaces and rings now, but I could use some more bracelets to create a cute stack. I really love the look of gold-filled bead bracelets and love that they really go with any outfit.
This set from BaubleBar is cute – any jewelry I’ve gotten from BaubleBar has never let me down!
Cute flatform sandals
Since moving to Miami, I still struggle with putting together an outfit since it’s basically summer all the time. Normally I would ask for a cute pair of boots for Christmas, but since I live somewhere warm sandals seem more appropriate. This pair from Dolce Vita has some of my fave colors and a fun snake print. They would look so cute with some denim shorts and a white tee!
What Do I Want for Christmas – Wellness
A journal for, well, journaling
One of my goals for 2021 is to really, actually journal every day. I think it will really help me with anxiety and help me get all my thoughts out of my head and onto paper. Papier makes personalized journals, which is so cute! I’m thinking of asking for one with my initials on it – this cosmic themed book is calling my name. And of course, a set of the best pens ever to go with it.
This year, like many people, I became obsessed with doing my nails at home. But it’s so annoying to either have to sit in the tub or sit and soak my feet in my sink, ya know? This foot bath takes that out of the equation and even makes bubbles and heats up, so it feels like you’re really at the spa. Perfect for at-home pedicures!
A lifetime supply of rosewater spray
Omg, this is my favorite facial spray ever. It smells so nice and feels so calming on the skin. My college roommate introduced this to me and I can see why she was so obsessed with it. I ran out of mine but I would love to have a few more bottles on hand. I keep them in the fridge so it feels even more refreshing – I never want to be without it again.
What Do I Want for Christmas – Home
Nespresso Vertuo Pods
I recently bought a Nespresso machine on sale for Black Friday. (This is the exact one I bought if you’re curious!) Long story short: I LOVE IT. It’s so convenient to make a delicious cup of coffee or espresso drink – I’ve been having a lot of fun combining different pods with cold or hot frothed milk to make yummy drinks. I’m running low on pods and thought it could be a good idea to ask for some for Christmas. (I guess part of being an adult is asking for things you need for Christmas, not things you want)
These are the pods I want:
- Melozio, for a classic cup of coffee
- Caramel Cookie
- Vanilla Custard Pie, because I love vanilla coffee!!
- Bianco Forte, for making fun drinks with oat milk
- Hazelino Muffin, because it sounds yummy 🙂
- Ice Leggero, for making iced coffee
Do you have a Nespresso? This is all so new to me so I would love to hear your go-to recipes!
Who doesn’t love candles? I go through candles so quickly that I’m always looking for new ones. I’ve tried Boy Smells candles before and they’ve never let me down! Slow Burn is inspired by Kacey Musgraves, so obviously I n-e-e-d it.
What are you asking for Christmas this year? Anything on your list that’s on mine?
