Sometimes the most coveted gifts can’t be bought, wrapped up in pretty paper or placed under a Christmas tree. Sometimes the most valuable gifts don’t cost a thing and instead, all that they require is a little bit of time, love, and extra effort. This year my Christmas list is small. It isn’t filled with things the way my childhood lists were. There is no particular item I am hoping to unwrap this year. Instead, what I most look forward to, on what will be our Littlest Miss’ first Christmas, is looking around and seeing the faces of the people I love most. I simply want to enjoy my family. Even so there are a couple of things (say 12) that I will still gladly accept.
I’ve complied a list of a few gifts us mamas would love to have, all of them easily obtainable and might I add ― free! And of course dear husband, if you’re reading you could always save the extra money that you would’ve spent for a future date night.
Here are 12 gifts that don’t have to be bought.

As silly and trivial as some of things sound they do make for a merrier Mrs. Of course, if I can only pick one I’d take the time with my Mr. and our littles. Because time is precious and fleeting and it’s something we can’t get back (although Instagram is helping us capture it to some degree pretty nicely).
What are some “priceless” gifts you are hoping for this season?
