For my wishlist this year, I've resorted to more practical and functional gifts in the hopes of not hoarding endless amounts of tidbits that I won't use past the end of the year (with my short attention span, this is very likely). Okay, who am I kidding. There is nothing practical about this idea at all. I suppose they call is a wish list for a reason. Below are a few of my favorite things that I don't yet own. With the convenience of online shopping, there is a likely chance that I would have purchased each of these items by the time I finish writing this post. 

The holiday season is all about giving, selflessness, and showing our gratitude to those around us BUT that doesn't mean we can't spoil ourselves in the midst of it all. As we grow up, we in turn outgrow the idea of writing a Christmas wish list for Santa as we once did as children, and lay awake on Christmas Eve counting down the hours until Christmas morning. Instead, we create mental manifests for ourselves and hope that the plethora of credit cards we house in our wallets can complete the deed that is soon to be regretted!
