Christmas Wish List

Christmas 2015 Wish List!

So it’s exactly a month before Christmas today.

Can you believe that? I can’t. 

Wasn’t it just yesterday when we prepared for Christmas 2014 and I was still excited at the prospect of all those desserts because I wasn’t lactose intolerant yet? Or how my dad was so excited for all those savoury dishes because he wasn’t undergoing dialysis yet? Funny how much things change in a year, no?

Anyway, let’s not dwell on the sad things (read: food restrictions) because Christmas doesn’t just revolve around food. It also revolves around gifts. Of course I’m totally kidding, but since gifts are a fun thing to talk about, why don’t we talk about them? Here are the things I want to have for Christmas!

1. A Blank Planner

Here’s a confession: I bought a Certified Positive last year (I started using it in 2013) and even gave away a couple of copies to my readersAnd I loved my planner. I used it religiously — until I started attending real estate classes. I was able to find time to update it occasionally — until I got a full-time job with Stay At Home Mum. And then I had to study and prepare for my board exam. Let’s just say the last time I got to write something in it was in June.

(I did pass the board exam, though!)

I’m not giving up on a planner this year. However, I think my best bet would be a blank, un-dated planner so that I can continue using it even if the month — or year — has already expired. I have my eyes on this:

And while you’re at it, this matching desktop calendar too:

2. A New Tumbler

I think it was a couple of months ago when I broke my Snapware glass tumbler. Waaah. It’s supposed to be stronger than glass (same material as Pyrex) but I dropped it with such force that it got really smashed. It has a warranty but I find it bothersome to go to their office to claim a replacement — which I still have to pay for half the price.

Yep, I broke both my trusty Snapware and my phone’s glass screen this year.

I’m using an extra Tupperware tumbler here at home but I’m no longer used to the taste of water inside a plastic container (arte). But I don’t trust myself with a glass container anymore so I’m looking into stainless steel options. Yuri has a stainless steel Thermos Funtainer but I want something prettier. Like these:

3. Calligraphy Tools

I don’t really know calligraphy, but given some lessons and the right tools, I think I can handle it. I see calligraphy everywhere and I’m so jealous! I swear, if I knew calligraphy, I would “calligraphy” everything.

4. Phone Accessories

I recently got a new phone — thanks to Job! Haha. You know me; I am extremely frugal when it comes to gadgets and I prefer buying cheaper phones (with good specs and reviews) over the more expensive ones. I got myself a Huawei Honor 4C, made even more affordable thanks to Lazada’s 11/11 sale. I’ll feature it sometime soon here. Since it only cost me around P6,000, Job offered to pay for it. Yay!

Now that I already know how clumsy I am, I’m keen on getting it the right accessories this time. Hint, hint!



5. New Everyday Shoes

My handy-dandy durable Crocs flats broke into two pieces — yes, this year, too! Hey 2015, what’s good? Hehe just kidding, I love you. Anyway, it wasn’t my fault at all. I may be clumsy but I barely ruin my shoes as in. Nope, it was my mum’s fault. She was going on a site visit and wanted the most rugged pair of shoes in our shoe closet — which happened to be my Crocs. Now, my mother is known to destroy almost every pair of shoes she wears, and no matter how durable Crocs are, they didn’t stand a chance.



Now I’m on the lookout for a new pair of “everyday” shoes that I can wear without worry. What do you recommend?

What do you want to get for Christmas?

    You’re now lactose intolerant? What a bummer! 🙁 I’d love to get calligraphy tools too. Though same as you, I have no training on it but seeing the many calligraphic writings around, I want to create those nice things too. 🙂

    I want that powerbank+speaker of Sarah and a planner and a shoes too and I think it would be better if someone will give me these (you know for the spirit of christmas…hehehe)
    Merry Christmas in advance and wishing you’ll get all of them 😀

    Those planners are really cute and cheap too! Good options. As for me, I think I’m sticking to my fauxdori/travelers notebook. All I need is a new weekly notebook insert to put inside it. 🙂 Anyway, I have a couple of brush calligraphy pens. I wanna be a master calligrapher. Hahaha! Unfortunately, I barely have the time to practice. 🙁

    you seem to be a big fan of Sanders and Sam! 😛 I have also been contemplating on getting one of those planners, but I have just ticked that off my list since I already got the Mum 24/7 2016 Planner. I suggest you try one of those fauxdoris if you are keen on getting a blank planner. I have just been checking a bunch of them on IG earlier! 🙂

    Ooh, calligraphy. If there is something I would like to get this Christmas, it will be the Calligraphy Kit from Craft Central. I would love to try it too, and yes, I will “calligraphy” everything once I learn how to do it! 😀
