My Christmas Wish List 2018

Christmas Wishlist.png

My Christmas wish list for 2018 is filled with electronics, fashion pieces and entertainment. It might give you some ideas of what you might want too, maybe we like the same things!

After all, I’m sick of seeing the same Christmas Gift Ideas for Women where it’s just filled with kitchen appliances and slippers! Yawn!

I’m definitely aiming this towards Alex, so I hope he’s making notes so I don’t have to hear the dreaded “I didn’t know what to get you”.

I will in no way get all of these things, neither do I expect it. But, I like to give a bigger selection, plus I like the element of surprise.

This post contains affiliate links – if you purchase any of the products I will make some commission for the referral at no additional cost to you.

1. Amazon Echo Dot

£49.99 on Amazon. Buy here: Amazon Echo Dot

I have been thinking about how I want an Amazon Echo Dot recently. They look good, they are functional plus I can actually stand here and say “Alexa play…” and bring my tweets to life. Okay, just me?

2. The Greatest Showman DVD

£12.99 on Amazon. Buy here: The Greatest Showman DVD

I have been in love with this film since the first time I saw it. The catchy songs that have not yet been turned off repeat. Zac Efron. Hugh Jackman. A great story with powerful hits that you just want to sing and tap your feet along to. A definite must-have for me this Christmas. I am hoping Alex will pick me this up for a stocking filler! I’m also after Mamma Mia 2 and Christopher Robin.

3. UGG Boots

£126.12 on Amazon. Buy here: UGG Boots

I know a lot of you hate these, I’m so sorry but I just can’t tear myself away from the comfort of UGG boots. We once had a Principal who banned UGG boots altogether, he was from Australia and hated that we were wearing these slippers as outdoor boots. But answer me this, if they’re intended to be slippers why do they have the thick bottom sole and why do they sell a range of slippers?

My UGG boots are looking a little worse for wear now after battling the snow in England. They’ve got a few water stains so it’s time for a new pair. I wear my boots every day to work just because they’re so comfy to walk in. I’d go again for the light brown. In an ideal world, I’d choose the beige but I just know they’d get ruined!

4. Yankee Candle Advent Calendar

*update* I managed to get my hands on one, thanks to Fosse as part of their Full of your Favourites campaign!

£34.99 on Amazon. Buy here: Yankee Candle Advent Calendar
OR: £16 for the smaller Advent Calendar, the same as mine, in Boots at Fosse!

I’m a little late to the party on this one. But, I love the Yankee Candle Advent Calendars. I prefer the mid-range one that has a selection of tea lights and mini candles. They have beautiful aromas and fragrances and I love being able to light a different candle every day before Christmas.

A few years ago, I had a Yankee Candle Advent Calendar and I loved it. My room smelt beautiful every day. As each day had a different scent, they did repeat though, the aroma was constantly fresh and different. It was heavenly. I’d definitely like another this year, or next!

5. Happiness Planner

51,74€ on The Happiness Planner. Buy here: The Happiness Planner

I love my The Nomad Factory Travel Journal and I’ve really gotten into crafts and bullet journalling, so I think I’d love the highly-anticipated Happiness Planner. It’s an aesthetically pleasing planner that is designed to help you plan and manage schedules and to-do lists and live a fulfilled life by evaluating your self-development and gratitude. It aids in positive thinking and embracing your own self-worth. It has loads of additional pages and a whole host of different printables too. It also comes with an App! I’d like my hypothetical planner in pink and black.

6. Disney Pin Trading Pins

I’d like a few pins to add to my Disney Pin collection ready for next year to trade at Disney. I’m not actually fussed what they look like. As long as I have a few. I want some that will look beautiful and some that I’ll happily trade!

7. 2019 World Desk Calendar

£12.11 on ETSY. Buy here: Worldwide Desk Calendar

I’ve had this ETSY 2019 Worldwide Desk Calendar in my cart on Etsy since October 2017. Now we have an actual desk, I’d love a desk calendar to sit next to the computer so that I can feel organised and it looks really pretty too.

8. Kanken Backpack

kanken backpack and essentials kits perfect for christmas men

*update, I managed to get a Kanken! Thanks to Kanken for sending me one out along with some of their Essentials kit*

I love the Kanken backpacks and have been wanting to get my hands on one for quite a while. They look sturdy and perfect for travelling and short haul flights. I’d also like to try out the cooler bag from the new Kanken essential accessories kits.

9. Vlog Camera

*update: thanks to Black Friday and a little contribution from Fosse as part of the Full of your Favourites campaign, I managed to get a Panasonic Lumix camera, perfect for photos and videos. I love it!*

I really want to get my hands on a vlogging camera. We don’t have sound on our camera so that’s no use and the Go Pro is great for action shots, but for moving it’s too shaky. The phones are okay, but what I really want is a good quality vlog camera, I’m open to any suggestions!

10. Books

There are a few books on my wish list this year,  I want to read The Tattooist of AuschwitzThe Little Orphan Girland It’s Not Me, It’s Them.

If you want to send me a little Christmas coffee, you can do so securely here! Thank you! Buy Lauren a Coffee

Merry Christmas,

  1. I’d like the Happiness Planner as well, even though it’s not my first priority (that would be a dive computer). I didn’t know people still actually bought DVDs, everything is online nowadays if you look hard enough 😉

    1. Haha! I much prefer owning the DVD and giving the creators the paycheck – I know I’m old fashioned 😂 I love putting my DVDS on the bookcase too so it’s for the aesthetic as well 😂 Internet isn’t fast in our village of Spain either (no fibre optic) so it just buffers! Xx
