I had written a post a few weeks ago about where to shop local in Kansas City for great gifts for those on your list. I forgot to include with that post some of my wish list for Christmas - I know that it's kind of a kid thing to do, but I was trained right as a child. We would get the giant Sears catalog in the mail and cut out pictures of the things we wanted and glue them to a sheet of paper. I think that, along with packing and re-packing my school supplies leading up to the first day of school each year, was my favorite childhood activity.
(I should mention that my list is much-pared down this year, as Brian recently surprised me with an item off of my Travel Toys post - an iPad - for an almost-made-it-through-the-first-semester gift.) If I could have anything, I would want my whole entire family to be all together in the same place - parents, siblings, grand-parents, aunts, uncles, etc. But I think that will have to wait, as for things you can actually buy, here is my list:
|This silk sleep sack would be perfect for my upcoming trip to Haiti, where Brian's down sleeping bag will undoubtedly be a little too warm.|
|I want to read this book (Hints to Lady Travellers) that "combines archive material from a book of the same name first published in 1889 with anecdotes from well-known modern female travelers to offer a fascinating insight into the way that travel has changed for women over the last century." So interesting and perfect for my coffee table!|
|Those who know me, know of my sweet tooth. I found this website recently that sells boxes of candy by era as well as individual hard to find sweets. I'd go for the 90's box myself, Santa. Yummy!|
|This wireless SD card is good on so many levels. First off, it's orange, which is always a plus. Second, it eliminates my laziness of hating to actually upload photos to edit. And finally, it would allow me to leave my laptop behind and upload things directly to my iPad, I think.|
|Rounding out my list is this pair of Sanuk slip-ons. They are comfy (I think I've tried them on five or six times but never pulled the trigger on buying them - trying to decide between these and some TOMS as my go to comfy travel shoes. I think I've decided on these.)|
