Can you believe there are only 11 days until Christmas?! Time flies when you study your life away! I put up a poll on my Instagram story and asked everyone if they would rather see a Holiday Gift Guide or my Christmas wishlist, and the majority of the voters wanted to see my wishlist.
Let me start off by saying that this is just a wishlist for fun. I am going through a total struggle with my laptop (which I use for school and of course, blogging) and I’ve just been asking my family members for money to put towards my laptop instead. What I’ll most likely end up doing is treating myself to these things sometime next year, after I get all of my important things sorted. Okay, on to the fun!
Silk Sleepmask – Slip ($45)
I am obsessed with my Slip Silk Pillowcase so I feel like the next step to getting the best sleep ever is to get the eye mask. Right now I’m just using a random eye mask from Bed Bath & Beyond. Lol, it gets the job done!
Sony A6300 ($748-$1000)
I really want to start vlogging next year, and the Sony A6300 is the perfect vlogging camera. It’s also really good for makeup close-ups, so if I happen to somehow become the next Picasso when it comes to my face, it’ll come in handy. There are also different lenses that make the photo quality on par with my DSLR so I won’t have to lug my DSLR around when I don’t want to.
Sukari Babyfacial – Drunk Elephant ($80)
According to reviews, this product works miracles. I’m really lucky because my skin isn’t really problematic, but I still want to find out what the hype is about!
Patent Leather Boots – Target ($44)
There’s just something about patent leather that makes me want it all. These particular boots come in black and white and I think I want both colors…
Jade Roller (anywhere from $7-$30)
This is something I can definitely add to my skincare routine. The jade roller is an Asian beauty staple that improves blood circulation and skin elasticity, promotes lymphatic drainage, and tightens pores. Sign me up!
Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume ($85)
This is my favorite scent at the moment. It lingers on me all day and is the perfect combination of florals that aren’t too sweet or overpowering. I get so many compliments when I use my rollerball. I definitely plan on upgrading to an actual bottle soon.
Almond Supple Skin Body Oil – L’Occitane ($50)
This is my holy grail body oil. I LOVE using it in the winter because it’s the only thing that really keeps my skin hydrated. It’s worth every cent, and no, this is not a sponsored post. 😉
Fluff Momma Mongolian Clog – UGG ($150)
Maybe it’s the New Yorker in me, but there’s something about getting a new pair of UGGs for Christmas. Their slippers are my favorite; I look forward to coming home from a long day to slip on either my Scuffette or Dakota slippers. These are so extra and so me. Oh, and if you have any questions about their ethics/fur, you can find everything you need to know on their website.
That’s all, folks! I personally really appreciate gifts that I can use for at least the next 4-6 months. (Side note: You can shop all of my picks in the widget below. ) I also have a puppy on my Christmas wishlist, but I’m keeping an eye out for adoption events, because a lot of puppies given as Christmas presents unfortunately end up getting put up for adoption. As far as gift giving goes, I really like to shop small – there are awesome holiday markets all over NYC and I’m actually attending one in Miami this weekend to pick up a few presents. Etsy is also a good place to get unique, handmade presents. Of course, I’m not opposed to giving my shopaholic friends gift cards. hehe.
