My list is small this year... and I’m getting complaints it’s not “beefy” enough... looking for more ideas...

All I have on there is:

Art supplies
Nail polish
Starbucks gift cards

How about you?

I dont have much on my list either. I struggled to think of something to tell my mom, and I still haven't told her anything for husband and 2 boys.
What I asked her for was a 8qt LeCreuset stockpot, and some hello kitty car mats.

I'm with you on this one! Or at least maybe just a new job.

Hope you find something.

I’m having to become very selective about what I bring into the house. My husband’s dream is to live in an RV full time when we retire, and even though that is a long way off it has made me really look differently at possessions. It seems silly to collect more stuff to only have to get rid of it in a couple years. I’m focusing on things that bring me closer to those that I love, like board games for time together with friends/family and interactive dog toys for time with my pup. No matter where I live these kinds of items will always have a place in my life and home.

Other than games and dog puzzle toys, I’ve asked for some craft items. We don’t do a ton of gifts in my family anyway so hopefully I won’t have to come up with more ideas.

I really don’t have much. We are all on a budget as I’m missing work right now because my husband is in the hospital with an infection in his foot. Surgery tomorrow to remove a toe at the least maybe more
Depending on how bad the infection is. I did tell the kids a few cheaper things like

Bath n body works candles
New purse and wallet
Some new throw pillows
Gift cards for Starbucks or Applebee’s

Hoping for an infrared blanket, some essential oils and maybe some paint and wallpaper - as I am getting read to redo our hallways and our master bedroom and bathroom, and perhaps some k-cups. :)

Sending prayers for your hubby today... That's rough. 


On a pretty strict budget myself this year, so high on my list is GCs to places like Meijer and Target to help my dollars stretch a little farther while I work through this tight spot.


For those curious: Kitty in my pic is current furbaby, Mew, curled up in a box far too small for her. Ha! "If I fits, I sleeps!"

 

NASCAR fan (particularly JGR pit crews - many friends there), diehard UM Wolverine fan, animal lover, car girl, cookie baker, singer, bargain hunter. Yep. That about covers it. lol :cool:

Not much for me either this year.  I Marie Kondo'd my house over this year so I'm trying really hard not to replace all the mess I no longer have so I asked Santa for mainly gift cards and a specific pair of Skechers shoes.  I'm sure there will other surprises but this is all I asked for.

I'm envious of your Marie Kondoness . My motivation to get started is overtaken by my lack of energy.

to be honest I don't think I went as deep into the house as her book instructs but the amount of stuff I did cart off was unreal.  It felt good when I first started but after a few weeks (obviously had to do it over weekends) I got weary and stopped.  I got rid of a lot of home décor stuff and things from my childhood that I couldn't even come up with a reason why I kept them in the first place.  Carted a massive amount of books to the library for their sale.  Unloaded a lot of stuff at a garage sale this summer too.  I look around the house and I still have to much stuff so Marie probably wouldn't approve!  :)

I'm the same. Years past I'd have a 3 page list (with pictures) for my family to pick from.
This year I can barely come up with anything. I actually told my dad, socks. His response was to laugh.
But I don't really need anything, plus I'm in the process of clearing out stuff I don't use or need.

So for me...
Socks
Slippers
CVS gift card
Starbucks gift card
Mugs with lids
Old navy gift card

I’m getting a new iPad because mine won’t hold a charge. I really just wanted pajamas,slippers and the newest Janet evanovich book. The best gift though is having all my kids home from college

We don't exchange gifts, but DH and I go shopping for things we want on Thanksgiving/Black Friday. This year I'll be buying my usual sheets from WalMart. Looking for a new electric griddle, wool socks, and maybe a little car vacuum. OMG! Looking at my list, I think I've turned into my mom!
