My Christmas Wish List

This is a post that I both love and hate writing every year. Love, because: I get to list all the things I could possibly ever want. Hate, because: I never know if I want something bad enough to ask for it. Either way: here’s my Christmas wish list!

1. Books

1. Adequate Yearly Progress: the title alone does it really. The story makes it sound even better. (Goodreads)

2. Yuval Noah Harari: because, you know: science. And knowledge. All things I’m pretty darn fond of. And also, apparently these books are written very well! (SapiensHomo Deus21 Lessons)

3. All Out: The No-Longer Secret Stories of Queer Teens Throughout The Ages: do I even need to explain this? These stories sound fascinating – and also: they need to be heard. (Goodreads)

4. Ogre Enchanted: I loved Ella Enchanted, so it’s only natural that I want to read the prequel as well, right? (Goodreads)

5. The Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out Of The Window And Disappeared: fun fact: I almost bought another book by the same author on three. different. occasions. Anyways, this one sounds interesting too :p (Goodreads)

6. Sex with the Queen; Sex with Kings: because history. And scandal. What else do you need? (QueenKing)

7. The Clockmaker’s Daughter: I need to read more historical fiction but it’s often quite expensive to buy myself? So, you know – I want someone to give it to me. As one does. (Goodreads)

8. Crazy Rich Asians: I don’t want to watch it until I’ve read it. So I need to read it. But it’s an entire series. So I need to be gifted it. (Goodreads)

9. The Next Person You Meet In Heaven: I loved the first part of this series. And every other book by Mitch Albom I’ve ever read. Really, everything points towards me liking this one. (Goodreads)

2. Utensils

1. Brita Water Filter: we already have the filter jug, but, honestly… With how much water I drink? We need the big guns. (Amazon)

2. Bottles: see above, really! (Amazon)

3. Glass Storage Boxes: I love cooking. Particularly in large batches. But I don’t have enough storage to then save the food in. Or, if I’m being honest, enough closets to store the storage boxes in. But still – I want all the things! (4-part or 6-part set)

4. Pots and pans: they’re so pretty. And they’re blue. And there’s so many of them! (Blue setGrill pan)

5. Electric Fondue: this might be because it’s Christmas and every year either around Christmas or on New Year’s Eve, we do fondue or gourmet. And I always have to borrow the parents’ set. I need to stop doing that – and get someone to give it to me instead! (Amazon)

6. Fat Separator: I just like gadgets. That’s all the reason I need for this. (Amazon)

3. Randoms

1. Face Cleanser: because acne. And stress. And I need this.(Amazon)

2. Juicer: Because juices. And stress. And I need this. (Amazon)

3. Purse: I just have a problem – I like purses. It’s the only thing, apart from kitchen utensils and books, I don’t think I will ever have enough of. (IndividualSet of 3)

4. Watch: do you know how many times a day I have to ask someone else what time it is? Because I can’t find my phone? (I probably should get on that as well) But still, I would be so much better a friend (or at least a less complaining one) if I just had a watch. Can someone give me this already? (Amazon)

Sooooo… That’s my wish list. Fun fact, when I was asked to send through my actual wish list? I thought of three books. That’s it. Why can I only ever think of gifts when I don’t need them?


Anyways, what’s on your Christmas wishlist this year? I actually have one extra thing: for you to go check out the rest of this year’s blogmas-posts as well as all the rest of my Christmas content! (gotta get those views up :p )
