Let’s be honest. When it comes to Christmas and all of the hustle and bustle, it’s seems like there’s never enough time to get everything done. Then to add to the stress, someone inevitably asks you what YOU want for Christmas and you draw a complete blank. I don’t know how many times, over the years, I’ve had no idea what to ask Santa for because I haven’t even stopped to think about it. So for those needing some ideas, whether you’re looking for someone or you’re needing ideas for yourself, here’s some of my favorite things (not saying I actually own them but they are certainly things on my wish list).

NuMe Curling Wand

This is one I’m SUPER excited about because I actually bought it for Christmas for myself.  The story is this: The hubby picked up something for him, I picked up something for me. Win-win!! I discovered this wand after I started following Abby from Twist Me Pretty on Instagram. She has awesome hair tutorials and I might add, her family is adorable! You have to check out her blog if you haven’t already. Anyway, she rants and raves about this product and I have always been envious of her hair after seeing her use it. I don’t know how many times I would “oh” and “ah” over the NuMe Curling Wand she uses in her tutorials but one day I knew I had to get one. NuMe is currently running a Holiday Sale where if you use DEC39 you get any curling wand for $39.99.

I ordered the 25mm wand since that’s the one Abby suggests. Obviously, I haven’t used it yet because I have to wait until Christmas but I have to say, I’m not worried. I’m convinced its worth the money and I won’t be disappointed. I’ll keep you posted though. I just might have to share a picture once I’ve mastered the art of using it.

Boots

I mean enough said, right? Can you really go wrong with a pair of boots? I dare so, no! There’s a ton of options out there but don’t let that scare you. Having options is fantastic! Just find out (if you don’t know already) what kind of boot they like — high, low, black or brown and start shopping. There’s usually awesome deals popping up this time of year. I usually like to start shoe shopping at Designer Shoe Warehouse. They typically have great sales going on and a TON of options. So here are some of my favorites:

HEad over heels boot

Head Over Heels by Dune Tantor Wedge Boot – $79.95

Madden Kadey Boot

Steve Madden Kadey Boot – $79.95

Diba Pilot Boot

Diba Pilot Slouch Wide Calf Boot – $59.95

Purses

I LOVE a good purse, especially one that’s big enough to carry all my mommy stuff in (you know — snacks, diapers, baby wipes, tissue, etc). I’ve been on the look out for a good one but haven’t actually purchased anything because we all know the last thing we do is go out and buy stuff for ourselves. So husbands, boyfriends, friends, parents whoever is reading this post, this is a great idea for any woman.

Again, there’s a ton of options out there but I really like shopping at Charming Charlie. I love their colors and I think they are reasonably priced. Here are some of my favorites:

Cardigans

This is a great go-to gift since every girl loves a cardigan and you can pretty much find them anywhere. It doesn’t matter if it’s summer, spring, fall or winter a cardigan is a must have anytime of year. I have several in my wardrobe and I’m always on the lookout for others to add to my collection. One of my favorite websites to check everyday is Jane.com. They always have a variety of cardigans on sale and I’ve never had a problem with shipping.

Here’s are some quick and easy choices:

Snap Cardigan – $21.99

I absolutely LOVE this cardigan. Marie and Misty have a several in their wardrobe too so you know it’s good if all three of us have some. It comes in several different colors and I know you can buy them on other websites sometimes too.

Cookware

Probably not the most exciting thing ever and clearly not something to wear — unless you end up wearing whatever you’re cooking — but sometimes I love a gift that I don’t always think about getting for myself but I know absolutely need. Nothing is more frustrating when you go to cook something and everything is sticks to the pan. Do you think that’s a sign that it’s time for a new set? 🙂 There are some great products out there and I love all the colors options. Here are a few I’ve been eyeing:
