A Few of My Favorite Things...a Christmas Wishlist

Every year since I was probably 5 years old I get asked the question "what do you want for Christmas?". I think I am one of the easiest people to shop for because I like EVERYTHING (or so I think), but I have been informed that this is not always the case. This year I decided to put together a list of items that are on my Christmas Wishlist. I hope this list helps you get some ideas for the women in your life (or even give you some things to ask Santa for!)! In no way do I expect any of these items from anyone reading this blog, unless you are my husband of course :)


The APEX Bionic jacket from The North Face is ideal for any woman who considers herself sporty, or just wants to look that way. For windy, cold weather activities, this stylish jacket keeps you warm and away from the chill with its windproof exterior and comfortable fleece interior. This jacket comes in 10 different colors ( I prefer white), and is the perfect on the go jacket for this winter season. (Average price $130)

I love Jessica Simpson, mainly because we have mutual friends and she is a Texas girl, and I am especially a fan of her shoes! I own about 5 pairs of her boots, and even more of her heels. This Christmas season she has partnered with Zales to design a jewelry line.  I am obsessed with long necklaces right now, especially some with a little bling which is why this diamond heart necklace is perfect. Pair this necklace with a sweater dress, some knee high boots, and you have mastered the look for this winter. (Price of collection range $80-$800)

I have been on the hunt for the perfect gold watch for what feels like FOR.EV.ER. I wear a watch everyday, except when I wear gold earrings because I do not have a gold watch! My gold watch hunt has proved difficult because you have to find the right gold color(I don't want it to be too gold, ya know?), can't be too big (don't want it to look like something Puff Daddy would wear), don't want it to look cheap, but don't want to spend too much on it, and the reasons go on and on. The search stops here! This Micheal Kors watch combines everything I wanted into one perfect look. (price $100)

For anyone who knows me, you know I love to cook and entertain! During the Christmas season, I find myself every year wishing I had Christmas dishes! The Spode Christmas Collection is perfect for putting the "holly" in your "holiday". This is one of those gifts that you can make a Christmas tradition and give a new piece each year. The great thing about Spode is that it never goes out of style (ask your grandma, she probably has some). These pieces are festive and perfect for the woman who loves Christmas, cooking, and hostessing! (Price range $10-$500)


Since getting married I have successfully lost and gained 15 lbs (twice now). I have been looking for a great heart rate monitor/calorie burning calculator for awhile. The Sigma PC 9 HRM is perfect for your lady who likes to work out and wants to keep track of what she has done! I have read the reviews and this seems like the ideal tool to help keep you in your target work out zone as well as calculate how many calories you have burned. It's not too big or bulky and is just girly enough to blend in at the gym! (Price: $50)

So here is the list of a FEW of my favorite things! The main thing about gift giving is finding a gift that matches your receivers style. Think about what makes that person unique and get them something that highlights that, and you can't go wrong! 

Merry Christmas!
