In the past few months, I know I’ve sent a few items that I’ve wanted for Christmas to my mom, sister, and husband. It has been small things like earrings, sweatpants from Victoria’s Secret, and a running medal holder. As I keep being asked by different family members, my list is growing short very quickly. I’ve gotten to the point where there’s just nothing else that I need or really want. I’m happy where I am and how life is for me, and I just can’t come up with anything else (or big) to ask for! And while I’d love to say that I don’t have wants, in reality it’s that I’m blessed and hard working, and if there’s something that I want/need and is reasonably priced, I’ll probably buy it for myself after some thought.
As far as the items that I’ve put onto my list, here are the main ones. I guess when I say that I don’t have a bunch of stuff that I want, I mean I don’t have any bigger things like shoes, bags, or jewelry. All of these items are under $100, and all but one are right at $50 or less.
And I hope to find a few of those under the tree from my family, but as Tim keeps asking me for an idea for what I want from him as my main gift, I just can’t come up with anything. What I would really like that I’ve been wanting for a long time now?
Isn’t it pretty? I literally know enough about bikes to know that this is a road bike and is a good brand. I don’t even know if this would be the one that would be best for, but I do know that I want a road bike and that they are very expensive. This isn’t something that I would get for Christmas. It would be something that I get part of for Christmas and then use savings for the rest myself. And I just don’t know how much fun that would be or even if that’s what I want to do. I’m sort of stuck.
And beyond my being stuck, he’s stuck even worse. He can’t even think of anything to put on the $100 list for the gift exchange we’re doing with his side of the family. He has suggested maybe another pair of running socks.
And during the holidays it’s a tough place to be. What do you buy someone who doesn’t know what they want? Or what do you ask for when you don’t know what you want? But for the rest of the year, it’s the best place to be. To know that we really don’t have big needs or wants is a gift enough in itself, and I can absolutely be thankful for that. For now, it doesn’t wrap up with a pretty bow or fill the void under the tree. And we need to come up with at least something to do that.
What are you asking for for Christmas either as your big item or as small items or stocking stuffers? What is your husband, boyfriend, or best friend asking for?
Spill the beans. The guys are the hardest!
