What do YOU want for Christmas this year?

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Since we're all gonna be preggers during Christmas this year, what do you have on your wish list? Anything specific for your pregnancy or post partum?
I'm asking for a gift card to a local maternity store to buy nursing pj's, tanks, and tops, a backpack diaper bag (thought it would be much easier with two kiddos), a new purse, and a gift card to a local shoe store to buy comfy shoes.

What do you all have on your list for this year?

I mostly want cloth diapers or other stuff for the baby. And I'd really like one of those flip cameras so I can take easy videos of our little guy.

I really want a serger but I'm sure that any bit of Christmas money or gift cards I get will be spent on my kids.

I don't actually celebrate Christmas- but- the thing I want right now- so indulgent- is the silver Cross Classic Sleepover Pram.

I don't think we'll be doing much for us this Christmas - a few things for the kids but probably not for DH and I. With having to buy a new car money is going to be pretty tight. I never know what to ask for anyways.

I was going to ask for a Gypsy Mama Bali Breeze carrier (http://www.milkface.com/detail.aspx?ID=47947 ) but a friend is giving me a great deal on a Moby Wrap so I need to reassess whether I really need TWO wrap carriers!

We have enough of everything, I think. I am going to buy myself a post-partum kit, but I won't be asking for it for Christmas!

I know what you mean. We just moved in to a new house about a month ago, so that's basically H and I's present to each other. We put forth all of our effort and whatever money we have towards our DS and family members.

A new house?

That's on my wishlist every year. I tell myself that if it stays on there, maybe someday it will come true.

A new dishwasher. Motor just went out in ours....gonna cost nearly as much to fix it as to replace it with a new, more energy/water efficient one.

But can't afford to do either right now, so maybe (fingers crossed!) we can do that for our anniversary gift to each other! Woo-hoo.....so romantic!

We don't exactly celebrate Christmas, but dd2's birthday is Dec. 20th, and our anniversary is Dec. 19th. And we usually do a tiny bit of gift exchange with my parents/siblings and with his parents/grandparents/sister, because they would be offended if we didn't participate.

I just want $$ to pay for my doula!

I just moved into a new to me (1910) house - there are a lot of things on my wishlist!!! I am so occupied trying to organize the boxes and unpacking, well, I can't quite think past that and what I might like for end of pregnancy, post.

There are some beautiful curtains I would like for the "nursery" / guest room and some carpets from Anthropologie.

  • Oh yes! I agree with $$ for our doula
  • A new vacuum
  • And the biggest-NO BABY. I know, I know...but I am fearing a premature birth again, and if it is like last time, I could deliver right on x-mas day
  • Finally, to see SOME family. Being on modified bedrest and having no family in the southeast will make for an intimate, but lonely first holiday without extended family

I want a long, fuzzy bathrobe to wear after baby comes I need so much for the baby though that I'd really rather have people give me $$ or baby stuff that I need. So, the bathrobe is the only thing I'm hoping to get for myself...we'll see where money is though after we've had to buy all the big things (pack n play, pump, etc).

I feel like such a baby...money never comes between me and Christmas gifts because my Christmas gifts still come from my parents and in-laws.

I'm getting new bedding and curtains for the master bedroom (DH and are going to start using individual twin-sized duvets so we don't worry about covering the little guy in between us), and a big stack of books to read while I'm nursing.

Dh just asked me this tonight. I want yarn, a new bed, a fuzzy bathrobe, maybe some jammies & slippers. Books & craft magazines.

A professional organizer at my disposal.

For Yule, I just want a nice sling and some nursing bras. I can't actually think of anything *for me* and me alone that I want. But, I'm always like that around holidays. DH and I would like a video camera to film the birth.

I thought that I was still reading the knitting thread, and I was trying really hard to picture what on earth a knit nursing tank would look like.
