practical christmas list

The adorable Miss Aimee over at Mostly Mod posted about her practical Christmas list this morning and asked fellow bloggers to do the same. I have to say it was quite hard to differentiate the items that I want versus need but was able to come up with four:

(1) Kiehls Abysinne cream, as the Wyoming winters (and winds) do a number on my skin and this is the only product I can find that combat them.
(2) I also need some everyday gloves, like these from J.Crew since ski gloves are not always the best just for a trip to the store.
(3) Ok, so black Cole Hahn flats may seem like they should fall into the gray area between need and want but as I no longer have any suitable everyday black shoes they are definitely a need this year.
(4) Lastly, I am ALWAYS in need of simple studs, like the ones below from Banana Republic.

What items are on your practical Christmas or wish list?

great idea! you've got some great items there. and although they are your needs, i could see lots of people wanting them, too—as the way you have displayed them is so attractive!

let's see, i just really need ear muffs and lithium batteries for my camera. i know i don't need anything else. it's all wants from there on out.

i too am a kiehls girl! it's the only cream that works, well worth the cost. with chicago winters my skin goes crazy.

Thank you for the idea Aimee. Glad you liked the list. my mom just e-mailed me to see what shoe size I wear in those Cole Hahn shows:)

I'm all about practical - for me it is razors and a new water filter!

Blair said...

Callie-I could not agree more about kiehls! I am originally from Chicago and completely understand the brutally cold Chicago winters--makes me shutter to just think of walking over one of the bridges on the Chicago River.

too funny, it seems we both want the same gloves. i think i like your list much better.

I love the idea of this list! I think all of your picks sound quite sensible (*yet still fun!)

I think the number one item on my practical Christmas wish list is finding some affordable, yet temporary housing (corporate housing costs an arm & a leg, so pair that with our mortgage on the house we're selling? Well, it would be a HUGE struggle!)

I also need a good pair of cute and comfortable flats. I think those are my most practical wishes right now!

Carla said...

I love the studs! I wonder if they have colored stones...

citysage said...

Mmm...those diamond studs would be lovely to find under the tree, wouldn't they! GREAT little 'practical' list :)

Cole Haan flats are a wise investment. I've had mine for three years. Great for work, weekend, commuting, travelling and walking walking walking. Don't even flinch over the price, they're worth it!

Blair said...

So glad you all like it! Carla, unfortunately I don't think they have colored ones but that would be pretty!

Courtney, wishing you the very best of luck finding housing! I am sorry it is such a pain.
