My holiday wishlist … Gifts that I really want

Like any other upstanding, self-respecting blogger on the interweb i’ve been working on my gift guides all weekend for y’all. And like any upstanding, self-respecting shopaholic my picks tend to be things that I want for myself. Sure, it starts out as specific things for specific types of people – ‘For the college student’, ‘For the homemaker’, ‘For the tech lover’ – but ultimately unless I really want it I don’t really bother putting it on any list. I think If I were a 22 year old dude would I want this? And the answer has to be ‘Yes.’ in order for me to include it.

This first gift list is full of things that I just really want. Some of them are fantasy (that awesome $1400 lamp) but many are things that would make me really happy – things that I probably wouldn’t buy myself … or maybe I would (and will). I do very sneaky things when i’m alone with my business card. My ability to rationalize purchases is totally magical.

While I am still categorizing them in posts for you, I decided to put them all under a general gift guide on which is like Pinterest except just for purchases. You can follow people, boards and they all link to the actual stores and then BOOM, you just done checked Uncle Sandy’s gift off your list.

So, Brian, while a new house and a baby are probably sufficient/life changing ‘every day feels like christmas’ kinda gifts, if you feel so inclined to spoil your lady i’m pretty much putting some keys to my superficial happiness on a gold (brass) platter right here for you.

    Love everything! But I think I’ll stick with Pinterest – Pinterest IS Pinterest for purchases, just like Pinterest is “Pinterest for shopping” (Fancy), “Pinterest for weddings” ( and most ridiculously, “Pinterest for men” (Manteresting). One visual organization, collection and inspiration site to rule them all!

  5. Becca

    I have the wooden candle holders from MoMA right beside me on my desk! My boyfriend got me a set for Christmas last year and I absolutely adore them. It’s awesome to mix them up and use them singularly or stacked. A great gift idea indeed!

  6. Patti

    I totally read #8 as “Tina Fey” ice bucket.

  7. Terree

    I saw that leather kirigami plant hanger several weeks ago. I’m still thinking about it; it’s awesome. I’m wondering if it will be a drippy mess because I’m probably too lazy to take it down when I water it. Hmmm. Great round up.

    Cute crib on Instagram! Just fyi, the toddler conversion could work unless you get a wild one. We had two wild ones, and the corners of our Gulliver cribs were at eye level. We had to saw off all the rails and make little platform beds. But then they slept in them til 5+ years!
