Last week we made all sorts of suggestions for gifts to give (and who to give them to), which got us thinking about our own gifting lists: what we plan to give, and (of course) what we hope to get.
Friends and family of NKPR staffers, take note!
I’m giving: Watercolour paintings of deer because I can’t do any Christmas shopping because my ankle is broken. And it takes too long to ship anything to Newfoundland.
I’m hope to get: For Christmas I would like a Freedom Leg Brace or a wheelchair that’s portable so I can leave the house!
I’m giving: A new X-box 360 to my boyfriend…. so that I can kick his butt in Guitar Hero (my guilty pleasure, and although it’s like 6 years old I’m still obsessed).
I hope to get: A new iPod, because my 8Gig is just NOT big enough for all of my TUNES!
I’m giving: a colleague a David’s Tea set. The reason: she LOVES David’s Tea. Like really loves it! It made me happy to give it.
I hope to get: A few days in bed reading The Hunger Games series and watching romantic holiday comedies. I think this one is going to happen. It’s a gift I’m giving myself!
I’m giving: The Thing Quarterly. It’s a ‘quarterly periodical in the form of a useful object’. It’s a gift I give each year; literally the gift that keeps giving (4 very cool objects delivered to your front door throughout the year!).
I hope to get: Anything unexpected!
I’m giving: My dad a membership to Ancestry.com. My mom and dad don’t know much about our family’s history, and I think it would be a nice surprise for Christmas.
I hope to get: This Hudson’s Bay Company Collection Coyote Fur Utility Bag. I honestly can’t get over how amazing the HBC collection is: I AM OBSESSED!
I’m giving: My sister appreciates the small sensual things, so for her brand new house I’m giving Le Labo Candles and Home Fragrances in Anis 24.
I hope to get: Minimalism and Fashion: Reduction in the Postmodern Era by Elyssa Dimant. Translating sartorial modernism into fashion, the images are inspiring and the tone is sophisticated. A must have for fashion lovers!
I’m giving: Dutch Oven Penguin Blanket to my penguin-loving friend Kristin…because Victoria Secret seemed less appropriate for meetings. (Ed. note: Clearly Kristin approved!)
I hope to get: Jewels from Chanel’s Paris Bombay Collection.
I’m giving: A new We-Vibe 3 to my best friend, as she just got engaged.
I’m giving: My non-tech savvy mom a zebra-themed “Momgenda” to record all of our future mother-daughter “dates.”
I hope to get: This mini sweetie Rebecca Minkoff bow bag. Why? What’s one more leopard (look closely…) item in my wardrobe? A perfectly pretty bag for any evening, when all I need is my iPhone, keys, cards and of course my can’t-live-without-you Stila Yumberry Crush Lip & Cheek Stain.
I’m giving: iTunes gift cards.
I hope to get: Essie’s Damsel in a Dress and a lot of chocolate!
