ohh santa baby …

After seeing Anna’s post about gift ideas for christmas today, I remembered the folder of my own wishes that I have saved on my desktop.

As I am getting older, I find it harder to actually write a wishlist for my friends and family. Things like the newest Nintendo 64 games or iPods become less relevant and I find myself drawn to “bigger” wishes. Most of those wishes, however, are things I would like to be able to buy for myself at one point. Not only because of the unreasonable pricetag but also because it would be an achievement in my eyes. The chanel jumbo flat, for example – about 2 years ago I made a plan to save money from my first “real” (meaning full-time) job until I could afford that bag. (That job has yet to come …) I think I would appreciate the bag so much more that way. None-the-less, I thought I would share the items currently on my wishlist with you guys.

What’s everyone else wishing for this christmas? Do you have any brilliant ideas for what you are giving your loved ones?

1. Alexander Wang Rocco satchel

2. Alexander McQueen tudor rose / skull scarf

3. a new 50mm / f 1.4 (or 1.8) lens

4. Chanel jumbo flap with gold hardware

5. an affordable etsy version of the Dior “oui” ring (found via Mangoblüte)

6. Alexander McQueen delicate skull ring


While Mike and I were hunting for a new apartment (still no success) I started daydreaming about re-decorating and spent tons of time browsing the internet. While we may not be furnishing a new apartment at the moment, these finds from Zara Home would make a nice addition to our current home as well. This list will definitely be forwarded to Mr. Santa Clause :)

1. pillows with pretty patterns to go with the quilt (#3)

2. silver candel holders are my favorite, can never get enough of them!!

3. a quilt to throw over our bed during the day.

4. would love to store jewelry in these pretty containers.

5. decorative jars for candy or cookies.

6. adding a little glam to our bathroom with these containers.

    Die Chanel Jumbo steht auch schon sehr lange auf meiner Wunschliste, aber wie du, möchte ich sie mir lieber selber finanzieren und habe mir ebenfalls geschworen, dass ich ab den ersten richtigen Job zum Sparen anfangen werde! :)

  2. So many gorgeous pieces! I was going to do that for a Chanel bag too but I gave up…maybe I’ll start up again saving money from every paycheck :D

    I’m struggling with my christmas list this year…we’re saving to go to Australia next year to the budget is severly limited, I’ve an armani eyes to kill eyeshadow so far and that’s it….maybe a Tom Ford lipstick and I’ll leave it at that…it’s hard picking something and wanting to get stuff that you feel is “present worthy” and not something just for the sake of it….

    Oh ja, das ist eine Traumtasche :-)
    Ich werd dieses Jahr wohl hauptsächlich selbst gemachtes verschenken – zB. Schmuck und Taschen oder Kaffeebecher (wie hier: http://mamaskram.blogspot.com/2011/11/kaffee-tee-to-go.html)

  13. My Christmas wish list (as always) is way too long! I do have great ideas for my loved ones though…this is our first year living in Singapore and I’ll have my parents and parents-in-law visiting us. I’m treating them to Christmas Day champagne lunch at a very nice Riverside hotel. Oh yes, I’m hoping Mr Christmas brings me a new camera then I can take lots of great pics xx :-)
