What Do You Want for Christmas?

This is a pretty common question, for this season of the year. Whenever someone asks me what I want for Christmas, it throws me into a tail spin. I don't spend time thinking about things that I want or even need. Usually, my biggest need is to be around other people that I love and care about. This year is different, I've come up with an item that I really DO want and need. My purse is falling apart and it's also too small. I want a new purse for Christmas, one that I picked out for myself! Photo:Borrowed from Pixabay

I don't know what I want for Christmas. Maybe something money can't buy - family harmony.

@just4him There's division and jealousy between my two kids. Mari Lyn is serving the Lord and Chad isn't. So, he picks at her all the time, to make himself look better.

I am not interested in much of anything other than my bills. I want my roof and food in the fridge. I am sure those are covered so if someone asks me. I want a visa card. Because it's going on future bills. The lights are always due.

Our bills are a first priority, too. If they're paid late, I get stressed out!.

@kobesbuddy I am sure you know that about myself as well. That is why I am pissed about the tickets. But I let that go already I am going to take it and not make that mistake again.

I told my husband that I would like an Apple Watch. I've had FitBits for the past several years and have been happy with them. My sister got an Apple Watch several months ago and really likes it (after also having the same FitBit I have) so it must be at least comparable to it in terms of fitness tracking plus it does so much more. I bought my husband one last year for his Christmas present. He swore up and down that he didn't want one he didn't want one he didn't want one. Well, once he got it he was forced to admit that he loved it. So I think that I will like it too. He TRIED to tell me that he would give me his and he would get the newest model that was just released. He made up stuff like I always break technology, I lose things, I don't need all of the features, etc. I was like "what are you talking about?!?!?" He just doesn't want me to have a nicer one than he has.

So essentially, you know what you want to buy yourself for Christmas. Hmm, I'm not always sure what I want either, but if you are buying for me then you won't fail if you get me : A voucher to a bookstore Anything with Celtic Origin Blankets Pillows Something Food Related

You have a wonderful list of choices, very good selections! My husband will buy the purse, I just don't want him to pick one out. He does the same thing, Jay decides what he needs and picks it out himself.

@kobesbuddy I think that's the best way to be. My family has never been the list making type or the "you pick it out" type. When I was married, my mother in law wanted us to make a list of what we wanted. That was so new to me and I was so uncomfortable doing it. I have a friend who has her family make out a list of what they want. For friends she just wings it but she knows me well enough that she's never gotten me something I didn't want. This year I bought her barbecue sauce and seasonings. They are both things that are handmade (though not by me). I am really hoping she will like them, but I am also worried she won't. I wanted it to be something useful as we've had conversations about how we're both trying to be more minimalist.

Yes, like you I don't really focus on what I want for Christmas. I'm probably more focused on what to buy family and friends instead. I don't require a lot of material possessions to make me happy although my brother bought me a computer a couple of years ago which I really appreciated.

If we need something during the year, we usually buy it. So, for Christmas it's a lot more fun to focus on giving, to others we love.

I want someone to take me to buy some shoes. I don´t want to go out alone. I thought I´d buy some Sketcher gym shoes half a number bigger to take to Mexico, just in case my feet swell.

What do I want for Christmas? Being left in PEACE, by my family members! Being "given up!", No longer being stressed by them, above all, by my brother and my mother! Perhaps I ask too much, dear Kharla?

@kobesbuddy Mine was not a reference in the Religious sphere. Only what I would like to receive for Christmas. The quiet after 43 years of obsessions from third people.

I think it wouldn't hurt to ask a sweet person in your family, whom you think is kind and willing enough to get you a purse. It's not an everyday thing that you will be asking for a purse, it's only now :-) I like the same thing that you would like to have this Christmas and that is being around other people that I love and care about. My older sister and her family are living 1/2 a world away from me & my daughter and miss them dearly. It's just so different living so far from your love ones, not only holidays, but everyday.

I think a lot of us women have trouble thinking of gifts for ourselves. We're usually busy shopping for everyone else! The last few years I buy a few things for my husband and myself, just to have a few gifts to open while the kids are with us on Christmas morning. We're not wealthy, but we're blessed to have what we need and a lot of what we want. Hope you find the perfect purse and on sale!
