My MIL wanted me to make a Christmas list...but I'm really just at a loss. I cant think of anything I really need or want! I could use some new tires on my car and I need a couple new cookie sheets, but lol what kind of Christmas list is that??
So far this is what I've come up with:
cookie sheets
photo albums/picture frames

DH always has a hard time thinking of a gift for me. And usually when he asks me what I want I can't think of anything. So to make things easier this year I've been making a list, every time I think of something that I would like (not that I necessarily WANT, just something that I would appreciate if I got it) I add it to the list.

Things on my list include:

Sheepskin slippers
Stevia growing kit
Well tuned wind chime (like Corinthian Bell brand, they sound absolutely beautiful!)
New iPad case
Soft wool socks (Smartwool brand is good)
A nice ladies' watch with mother-of-pearl face

I also like it when people donate to World Vision in lieu of giving me something. I really don't need expensive gifts. But if someone donates, say, a sheep or a share of a well I think that is money better spent.

My FIL is going to ask the same question and off the top of my head (it's usually a family gift that he gets hubby and I and then usually whatever our son wants) also note he usually gives us a price range and/or a check so depending on that we will probably pay for whatever's left out of pocket if we ultimately go with one of the more expensive items.

New tv
Desk top (hubby will be going back to school next year)
Anything on our baby registry
Ninja/vitamix/other brand (dh and I are trying to decide which one we want)
Things for the kitchen (dh and I both cook so random gadgets for the kitchen for us to try is always nice)

I usually always have the same things on my list. Pajamas are always on there. I love my pj's and sweaters. I also love to bake so anything baking related works for me. Other than that I really have no idea of anything I need or want.

Me and DF are actually not doing Christmas gifts this year for each other bac use we cannot afford anything...it stinks but we need to save for the baby. If any family members ask, I usually just tell them sweatpants or sweatshirt from Victoria Secret lol. I made df a list before we decided not to do gifts, but on it was an ipad mini that I could use while feeding the baby and he offered to give me his instead :/
