I think everyone should make a Christmas list. Growing up, my sisters and I always made wish lists anytime presents were involved. And that is exactly what they were…wish lists. There were the years I already mentioned of wanting a parcel of my parents’ land; then it was the organic mattress; and I am sure I had a slew of other dreams that were a bit far-fetched. That is what they always tended to be for me, dreams and wishes. It was the place that I wrote down my hopes for life. And then all the practical things I needed.
I still tend to opt for the practical, the things I cannot afford, or the things I feel like I should not spend my money on but could really use. (This year I would have been tempted to add a plane ticket to France or Sicily if I did not realize it was just silly of me to do so.)
I love hearing what other people put on their lists. It shows what might be in their heart or head that they might not have shared. You learn something. And, it makes shopping a lot easier.
Here is a handy Christmas Gift List to help keep track of what and who you are buying for designed by Bonnie. It helps to stay organized!
