I've become kind of obsessed with my oldest son's Echo Show so that's the main gift I'm asking for this year.  What do you want?  It doesn't have to be a gift you'd actually get.  Wishful thinking is fun too! :)

Dreaming BIG - I'd love to go to Alaska and see the Northern Lights. For a more practical gift I'd like some ceramic coated cast iron cookware and some gift cards.

It’s one of those odd years. I don’t really want anything. My wife keeps asking me for ideas and I tell her the same thing. There is nothing I really want. I would rather the money be spent on her and my daughter.

I'm at the age where I don't really need anything. Would rather have projects done around the house. This year my son put in an automatic sprinkler for me and ran an underground electric line to my pond so I don't have to run an extension cord to it. This year we could use bricks lining the driveway, a small patio out back and new door handles on the front door as my husband has arthritis really bad in his hands and can't turn the nobs.

I need a good quality, solid purse.  Santa is willing to spend the money for it if he can fine one. Otherwise I don’t need anything, just spending time with family and eating all our favorite holiday snacks/meals is enough for me.

Down payment for a house.

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:

Since I basically had no income during the 18 months of lockdown, my credit cards are maxed out just from living expenses. I've managed to make minimum payments, but interest is killing me. Thankfully, with schools reopening, clerical subs are starting to be needed again, so hopefully I'll be able to pay them down.

But having those maxed balances paid off would be my dream gift.

I want simple, My son and his family home from Germany ( air force,) All my kids under the same roof Christmas Eve and Christmas Morning, That would be an amazing gift. That's just a dream, last time I saw him and his family was when I was in the ICU two years ago. 

 

I would also love a white Christmas just snow Christmas eve and a snowy cover Christmas morning then it can leave.

My two oldest DD college paid for is number one. A paid off mortgage would be number two. A Tesla Model S comes in a close third. 

 

Or a new job with a fortune 500 company running the acquisition and merger departments.

I would like my wedding ring set refurbished. After 35 years, it’s pretty beat up. Unfortunately, the cost of that is almost as much as just buying a new set

I am trying to find a new hockey-mom mobile.  I need something gigantic (suburban or yukon XL).  Just finding one with all the stuff I want on it would be awesome, at this rate I can't even order one.  

 

More realistically, I told DH that I want an immersion blender.

Wife likes the new Grand Wagoneer. She was looking at them the other night and the one she liked was $110k. We laughed HARD lol

I need mine resized! It's moving around too much. I guess that's more reasonable than "one house under a million dollars."


GO BRUINS!

I just bought myself a Cricut but I probably won't wait until Christmas to open it up & use it.  I want a Bailey Serian Suspish sweatshirt.
