What do you want for Christmas?

Asked by FreshlyBaked (626 points ) November 23rd, 2012

For those who celebrate the holiday Christmas, it’s common to exchange gifts. What would you like this year?

A Rolls Royce? World peace or just whirled peas?

Some fresh fruit from one of those fancy catalogues?

New socks?

I asked my mom for a mannequin, but I was mostly kidding.
I kind of want a banjo, but I’m waiting to ask for it for my birthday.
So, mainly, I’m trying to convince my mom to let me have a kitten.

A new pair of shoes. Other than that, the only thing I need is money!

I would like a compact digital camera. Something I can carry about in my bag and is less obtrusive if I want to take street shots. I think I’m dreaming though :D Other than that… nothing particularly. Just a nice day with my kiddles and husband.

In my fantasy world, I’d love to get a GPS.

I also would like a new pair of shoes. I actually had to put tape on the bottom of my right shoe the other day to keep my toes from getting wet. After the tape didn’t work I decided to break out an old pair of shoes that I had retired before the current pair – except that I can only find the right one. Yes, this means I’m walking around with mismatched shoes.

My bathroom redone. Yes, I know that sounds like a huge request, but it needs it so bad. It needed it 7 years ago when we moved in here, now it’s just even worse.

I would want to be home with my family in the states, no Christmas in this part of the world.

And there’s a book about the history of Marvel Comics I’d like.

I really want a fancy fountain pen for calligraphy and perhaps a new journal.

A nice big gift card to Sephora would be lovely. Plain ole money would be just as great.

I’m really hoping for a sewing machine this year… doesn’t need to be anything fancy, just one that sews!

I would like a blow job and some beer. (in no particular order) :)

A blowjob before my feet even touch the floor.

@bookish1 When you say “someone”, do you mean family, friends, or a ‘special’ someone? If it’s friends, you are cordially invited to spend Christmas with my gang. :)

jonsblond's avatar

All my children under the same roof for a few days.

janbb's avatar

Absolutely nothing material – but a more peaceful and joyous year for myself next year.

newtscamander's avatar

My family to be able to spend the festivities together peacefully.

Good company.

You did ask.

I would like to see my underemployed family members find full time jobs.

Actually, I can’t think of anything that I want for Christmas. I would have said fresh fruit but that’s going to be delivered by a local school a few days before Christmas. I guess I could say world peace or an end to famines but I always thought Christmas wishes should be something that could be achieved.

Sewing machine
Laptop/computer

Probably won’t get them for Christmas, but those will most likely be my next big material purchases eventually. Actually, I am on the fence about whether to buy a sewing machine, and I might just use my husband’s computer. We’ll see.

My parents are visiting now so they are treating me to dinners out and buying groceries and will probably buy me a thing or two of clothing maybe if we go shopping, and a little money. It’s not really a Christmas thing, just what they do when they visit, and they usually visit this time of year.

@JLeslie if you don’t know if you want to commit to a sewing machine, you can buy cheap but decent machines for $40—$50. I have a nice machine, but I use my cheapie all the time for smaller/light duty projects, and it has never let me down.

JLeslie's avatar

@DigitalBlue Thanks for the info. I did not know they can be found for such an inexpensive price. I might consider that.

I want a new TV for my room and a sewing machine. Someone is buying me a TV and I think I will buy myself the sewing machine. I am going today to Costco and Walmart to look at TV’s and I think I will buy a Janome sewing machine on Amazon (my gift to myself).

Usually, if I want something, I buy it myself. Thankfully, my “wants” are not too expensive.

Other than that, a larger house would be nice! :)

harple's avatar

(Interesting that that’s 3 of us wanting a sewing machine this year…)

Bellatrix's avatar

And I just bought an overlocker. Something in the air…

Unbroken's avatar

Screams: Save… lmao

jca's avatar

It’s like a real life Stepford Wives, except I’m not a wife LOL.

@harple My 8 yr old daughter wants a sewing machine for Christmas. She wants to make clothes for her American Girl dolls. She’s already making some things on her own, but she could do so much more with a machine. I love that she’s interested in sewing. My mom tried teaching me a few things when I was young, but I wasn’t interested at the time. Looks like my daughter and I get to learn together. :)

I want to give a surprising gift for my brother.
