Happy Holidays, My Wish List
So it’s the Holidays again (GULP!). So that means making my holiday wish list. However, in all honesty, I doubt I will receive any items from my wish list. I have kind of expensive taste, most of the items on my list are kind on the pricier side. The cheapest item runs around 100 dollars (hehehe). But who am I kidding, I am not going to get anything anyway. Now don’t feel sorry for me, as I am actually ok with that, and I prefer it that way. My husband and I stopped exchanging gifts a while back. Once he got hurt when he got me an imitation nomination bracelet, and I returned it because it was fake and was so not my taste. After that I told him it would be better if we did away with the exchanging of presents.
You may say that is being superficial, or I am being an ungrateful b*tch, but the truth of the matter is that I wasn’t going to wear it. I did not want him to waist his hard earn money on a gift I was not going to even going to wear. I did give him the money back from the return.
Here’s my philosophy on holiday gift giving, I hate it. I think it takes away from the holidays and makes everything so commercialized. I do not believe in giving gifts just because its a certain time of year. I believe in giving gifts to show my appreciation. I also put a lot of time and effort into choosing a gift. I want to give a gift that I think the person will use. If they do not like it I want them to return it and get something that they will like and use. What is your feeling on that? I know that this is a hot button issue for some people.
Also another reason why I hate to receive presents is because I do not have a poker face. So if I get something I really do not like its hard for me to mask my true feelings. I hate hurting peoples feelings. I think it’s time to get off of my soap box.
So without further adieu…Here is my holiday wish list. Or maybe I should rename it, and call it hopeful purchase in 2016
My Holiday Wish List.
So what do you think? I actually created this collage myself. I am really proud of myself because I have never attempted something like this before. Do you notice the overlay of words and the little graphic? What’s on your holiday list? I would love to know.
