My Holiday Wish List

I admit it. I am a terrible person to shop for. There’s never anything I need because I either buy it myself or I figure out a work-around and stop needing it. I don’t have hobbies that require gear, and my husband isn’t brave enough to try buying me clothes. The end result is that I usually end up getting gift cards for Christmas, which is always nice. However, as a mom who is trying to put a priority on teaching my kids about giving as well as getting during the holiday season, it’s important for me to be able to make at least a couple of suggestions to my husband so he can help my son pick something out for me. So, having a Christmas wish list is really for the children.

I’ve given it some thought and came up with a few ideas of gifts that fit into my new-mom life. Fancy clothes, make-up and jewelry are non-starters, but there are things that are special enough to be good gifts but practical enough to warm my pragmatic mom-heart. Here’s what I’m asking for this holiday season!
