One of the ideas on the list to write about, is to write about what my family wants for Christmas. This is a fairly easy one to write about. As I always ask my children to write a wish list of up to twenty things they want for Christmas. I only promise at least one thing off that list. If I can find an the item on the list and afford it, I will try and get what is on the list. The list is basically a wishlist of sorts. It can be something they need, want or something off the wall they know I could never afford it. It is to be made in fun, which gives me a baseline on what to shop for.
What My Daughter Wants For Christmas
My daughter wrote a list of what she wants for Christmas. She wants fake nails. Every time I get them for her, she doesn't use them. She sets them aside and loses them. I later find them on the floor around the house. Yet, she is sixteen, maybe she is mature enough to take care of them. She also wants more pencils to sketch with. She was talking about all kinds of shade pencils in different colors. I am not sure where to find those but I will look. of course being a girl she asked for more make up. I think it is time to get new make up. It has been awhile since I bought her any. She also wants waist high pants. As she has learnt that style looks good on her. Plus, she doesn't have to keep pulling them up. She has requested different multiple band shirts. Problem is, I don't know which bands she wants. As we don't listen to the same type of music. Now I need to figure it out which ones without her finding out. She is being practical. As she asked for more cotton socks. White ones to be exact. I guess she is tired of having multi colored socks and not being to find mates. She wants globes fro Christmas. As it is something she likes to look at and display. She is also in to those plastic flat wrist bands. I would rather get her something shiny, like a bracelet to go with any outfit. She is asking for another tablet. That is not going to happen. She broke her last one leaving it on the floor and stepping on it. She still has a phone and laptop she can connect to the internet. She has also asked for a gift card from one of three places. She wants from the book store, Rue21 or Claire's which are all located in the mall.
What My Teenage Son Wants
My teenage son was simple. He asked for money and gift cards. He is eighteen, I really didn't expect much else. He did ask for at least two more pairs of jeans.
What My Eldest Son Wants
My eldest son is twenty five, he asked for tools to be able to work on vehicles. As he is tired of paying out money to others to fix his vehicles. When it is cheaper to do it himself.
Shopping For My Grandson
I have asked my grandson's mom what to get him. At least ideas of what not to get him, that we do not buy him the same thing. That was a no go. I have asked three times already, and always get the silent treatment. I think a loud noisy toy is in the works for my grandson. lol.
My Boyfriend Wants
My boyfriend always asks for things he knows I can't afford. I tell him when we win the lottery baby. I buy that for you. We both laugh.
Well, it looks like I have a nice list of things to choose from. All them seem pretty simple to find. I am sure I will find some surprises to add to the list.
