What Do Bloggers Actually Want For Christmas?

I’m unashamedly okay with admitting I’m a nosy person. Not nosy in the sense of, “Oh hi, Susan. Happy Monday! What did you do this weekend?” but more like, “hmmm, I wonder what Rosie Londoner has on her grocery shopping list when she’s not blogging a recipe?” While I adore gift guides, rounding up fun things to show you guys, and clicking through other blogger’s guides to find unique items, this year I’m all shopped out. I got all my shopping done in an online-marathon spending spree earlier this week, fueled by 80s Rob Lowe movies on YouTube and about half a bottle of Rittenhouse Rye Whiskey, whilst in my favorite monogrammed pajamas, sitting on my couch. There. I admitted it. I did all my shopping online and only 2 things were from Etsy (sustainability and social conscience be dammed. Take my money, Amazon!).

All this shopping and marveling over the stuff on my friend’s and family’s wish lists made me look suspiciously at Susan when she walked into the office Monday morning, wondering what in the heck average people want for Christmas. One of my colleagues told me she wants a Rumba. That’s the type of stuff I like knowing about people. THAT really shows what kind of person someone is. Since my mother-in-law very specifically said that ‘botox and wads of cash’ is not an appropriate gift request I started thinking about stuff I’ve wanted this year, but just couldn’t justify plunking the money down for. In my family Christmas is that time to ask for treats you wouldn’t typically get for yourself. Because, you know… bills, insurance, rent.
All that rambling to say I know for a fact you people are as nosy as me. That’s why we’re friends and probably why some of you are here. Yes, I too read my favorite bloggers posts because I’m weirdly curious about the type of curling iron they use or what sort of sheets they recommend!
  • Pink velvet office chair | A blogger friend of mine found this on Amazon and so naturally now I need it.
  • Kendra Scott earrings | These earrings are everything. Unique, elegant and Dorothy Draper approved levels of drama.
  • Jeans | I have these jeans in every wash they come in (except that one!) because they’re the best curvy fit jeans I’ve ever found.
  • Gucci perfume | I’m not typically into “women’s” perfumes, but this one has me hooked. Go to Nordstrom and smell it. Tell me it’s not beautiful.
  • Tarte Palette | Because Tortoise Shell packaging! And because 11 nude, look-a-like eye shadow palettes just are not enough.
  • J. Crew pajamas | Because monograms.
  • Rhinestone boots | Because Rihanna.
  • Makeup organizer | I have an addiction and organizing it makes me feel better about my choices.
  • Fur scarf | The color blocking pattern is unique and looks v. expensive. I want it.
  • Leather Tech gloves | I actually bought a pair of the tan ones for someone in my family for Christmas. You can be on your phone and never take off your gloves. Winning.
  • Wallet | This is the best designer wallet dupe I’ve ever found but it’s MINI.
  • Wire sponge holder | My current makeup sponge storage system is frankly gross. I need this thing and not because it’s rose gold.
  • Bracelet | I’ve wanted this bracelet for almost a year, and it’s finally freakin’ on sale.
  • Hand bag | Between my mum and I we probably have 10 bags from this brand. Their quality is unparalleled for the price. And that color?! I mean, seriously.
  • Pumps | Two words: Pink sequins.
So there’s my list. Yes, it looks pretty and cohesive, but what did you expect? I like sparkly things that no human being on earth needs. For real though. I want this stuff. Someone forward a link to this post to my husband, please.
