Kirsty’s Christmas Wishlist & How to Build One

Kirsty’s Christmas Wishlist & How to Build One

Christmas is around the corner, so it’s a little late for a wishlist, but maybe some of you are still looking for presents for your loved ones, or even ideas to give your family for yourself! So I thought I would share my Christmas wishlist with you anyway. It might be helpful, who know!

What I have My Eye On This Year

I’m the kind of person that never knows what she want’s for Christmas or her birthday. Not that I don’t want anything (although to my mind presents aren’t mandatory), just that on the spot nothing comes to mind! So irritating.. Knowing that my mum would ask me the same question again this year, I decided to write down everything I wanted to buy my self throughout the year. When I went shopping and saw something I really liked but couldn’t afford I would write it down in my notes on my phone. This way I actually had a list to give my mum, full of things I really wanted, and not things “I wouldn’t mind getting”.

My 2017 Christmas Wishlist


Cashemere Perfume – Next

My ultimate favourite perfume has to be Chloe, by Chloe. However, Cashmere from Next is next in line, if not an equal favourite! It’s one of my favourite winter perfumes, and the fact that it’s really affordable makes it a great present to ask for or give someone. You just can’t go wrong with Next perfumes!

Coffee Cashmere Scarf – Galeries Lafayette

The older I get the harder it is to buy presents for me. Don’t get me wrong, I’d love anything someone would get me, but when I want something it’s usually something very specific. This year I am loving these types of scarves, and I’m trying go for quality items more than cheap and fashionable. Maybe I’ve hit that stage where you want quality over quantity haha So this year I really want a beige/light brown cashmere scarf. This is probably the second item on my list…

Macbook Felt Cover – Amazon

This is more a practical present, my current computer cover is just falling appart and I need a new one as I carry my computer around quite often. I also really like this style of computer covers, so I guess it’s a good excuse to get one!

They Watch – Adexe

I find watches are a great present. We all need one and I find them really classy. I’m really loving this watch from Adexe this year. They have a nice range of simple watches (which is totally my style) and this one is my favourite.

iPhone 7 in Pink – Apple

To be honest I wasn’t sure I really wanted to put this item on my list.. Just because my current phone still works just fine, except for one little detail… I currently have an iPhone 4 (yes, I know), so I can’t have access to updates and some apps my phone won’t even take, which is soooo frustrating! Plus, working in marketing and social media makes things even more complicated. So even if I absolutely adore my iPhone 4, I’ve decided to ask for an upgrade mainly for professional reasons. But my iPhone 4 is still staying in the family as my mum is inheriting it, so I will still stay in touch with him..

And that’s “all” for this year! As always I don’t really know what I’ll get as I never (or rarely) get my full wishlist and always get surprises, so I’m so excited to see what’ll be waiting for me under the tree this year!

What about you? What’s on your wishlist this year?

See you soon, love

    These are all amazing gifts! I never know what to ask for as my birthday and Christmas are in the same month but I will definitely be adding some of these to my list. Great post

  3. December 3, 2017 / 8:09 pm

    Great post! I’m asking for the exact same phone! I’ve had an android for quite some time now but would be really keen to get an apple phone as it would be easier to connect with my MacBook. I usually just ask for one thing because I really like getting surprises as well!

  4. December 3, 2017 / 8:12 pm

    Ohh that macbook case is very pretty looking! I think you definitely deserve a new upgrade if you’re still using the iPhone 4! I know I had to give in and upgrade because mine was just so insanely slow after i updated it!

    I love that mac book felt cover it’s so chic and stylish! I’d love to get the Stila glitter eyeshadows for this Christmas as they look amazing and I love a bit of sparkle. X

  6. December 3, 2017 / 8:18 pm

    What a lovely (and very practical) wish list! I absolutely love that laptop / felt cover. All the best on your iPhone 7 – the rose gold one is the absolute prettiest 😂


  7. December 3, 2017 / 8:20 pm

    I’m the same, I never know what I want. I usually find in September/ October I see things but decide to buy them for myself because Christmas is ‘ages’ away then run out of things. Always end up with stuff I ‘wouldn’t mind getting’ as well x

    I don’t really have a wish list usually my parents pay for a flight for me to go see them in Tenerife which is usually taken around my birthday. Nice items on this wish list though! 😊

  9. December 3, 2017 / 8:26 pm

    That watch is absolutely gorgeous Xx

  10. December 3, 2017 / 8:28 pm

    I’m loving your wishlist, it’s full of practicality and chic options I especially adore the cashmere scarf and classic watch. We all hit that stage where we cherish quality over quantity, investing in timeless pieces. Great list and thank you for sharing.

  11. December 3, 2017 / 8:28 pm

    That felt case is gorgeous! I would really love to receive a Jo Malone perfume as they smell so lovely and also an Amazon Echo would be such a helpful gift x

  12. December 3, 2017 / 8:29 pm

    I know how you feel about your phone I’m using a slow crap android i feel like throwing out the window at times and I hope santa is good to you x

  13. December 3, 2017 / 8:30 pm

    That scarf looks amazing! I really need something like that to wrap up warm in. Aw maybe you deserve a new phone now I hate that you can never update the older versions


  14. December 3, 2017 / 8:32 pm

    Aww this is such a cute little list! Girl you definitely need a new phone! The 7 is bomb Like it broke my heart when mine got stolen. And I love the shade of that scarf! I did a wishlist too if you care to see it

    Lena xx 😘

  15. December 3, 2017 / 8:32 pm

    I love your idea of writing down all the things that you wanted to buy throughout the year! I never know what I want, so I may try this next year 🙂 I absolutely love the watch that you’ve picked out, It’s gorgeous!
    Charlotte |

  16. December 3, 2017 / 8:35 pm

    Ooh the shade of that scarf is GORGEOUS and I am totally pining after a new phone too, I am definitely going to be upgrading when I’ve got a bit more money after xmas! I have just asked for lots of bath stuff and PJs 😀
    Alice Xx

  17. December 3, 2017 / 8:37 pm

    I agree that as I get older, I find it more and more difficult to ask for things and find things that I actually want but haven’t already bought myself – the iPhone will definitely come in handy though! An upgrade from a 4 to a 7 is a huge jump.. 😂🙊

  18. December 3, 2017 / 8:39 pm

    I love that you’ve included practical things on your list, the felt mac cover is gorgeous!

    Also, I love the colour of the scarf! It’s perfect for all year round!

    Love, Melissa x

  19. December 3, 2017 / 8:43 pm

    I love seeing people wishlist as they always give me an idea about what to get for my friends and family. Although I am always clueless when someone asks me what I want for my birthday. I currently have a mobile on my wishlist as my current device is literally falling apart.

  20. December 3, 2017 / 10:49 pm

    I’ve seen those macbook covers and I really love it . If you end up getting one for Christmas let me know if they’re worth it. I’ve got myself a new macbook and I want to look after it properly haha

  21. December 4, 2017 / 9:53 am

    I love all of these items but that “They Watch” is super pretty!

  22. December 4, 2017 / 12:02 pm

    My wishlist is kind of boring. I need more perfume, mine is running low. I want a big copper pan and a cordless vacuum or a Roomba.

  23. December 4, 2017 / 12:38 pm

    That number four! I believe that will be my gift to my self. All I want for Christmas is more nap time.

  24. December 4, 2017 / 2:47 pm

    I totally get why you want a new phone, I just upgraded to the iPhone 8 and I couldn’t have made a better decision! It’s changed my vice especially with blogging, I can take all my photos on my phone so I don’t have to lug a heavy camera around with me all the time!

  25. Jenn JG
    December 4, 2017 / 4:17 pm

    I love your list! I need to get on building myself a list, only way to get things you actually want! I really like that watch!

  26. December 4, 2017 / 5:11 pm

    I’m also terrible at knowing what I want for Christmas – last year I only asked for some socks and some Tesco vouchers to use for my groceries haha! This year my Mum told me that she wanted a proper wish list from me, so I started writing things down earlier in the year to give to her! I’ve still asked for some boring stuff like cooking equipment but I’ve also asked for a new camera lens to up my photography game on my blog! That cashmere scarf is gorgeous and I’m sure the iPhone 7 would make an amazing gift!

    Abbey 😘

  27. December 4, 2017 / 5:15 pm

    My family find me really irritating around Christmas because I am always the one who never says anything that I’d like. I am a sucker for scarfs and because it is super cold in the office during the winter they are my best friend at the moment. That watch is really pretty as well!
    Lois x

  28. December 4, 2017 / 5:19 pm

    The watch and scarf look amazing 😍 I would love a matching hat, glove and scarf set🙌🏼

  29. December 4, 2017 / 8:08 pm

    I love your list! I hope you get everything on it. That Macbook cover is so pretty.

  30. December 4, 2017 / 10:52 pm

    What some fantastic items, I have to admit I would love a new iPhone I have long run out of space on mine and so I’ve stopped using a lot of apps.

  31. December 5, 2017 / 12:45 am

    As pink (next to blue) is my favourite colour I will take a pink I phone thank you very much haha! The watch is super stylish and functional as well x

    These are great! Ive been procrastinating on making a list, so i really need to get on it

  33. Jen Walker
    December 5, 2017 / 4:44 am

    These looks like some fun presents! I have the same issue, both for myself and when people ask what to get the kids, so I started putting things on an amazon wishlist during the year.

  34. December 5, 2017 / 8:00 am

    I love the Adexe watch. It looks so pretty! It’s a perfect Christmas gift.

  35. December 5, 2017 / 8:15 am

    Seriously, I do envy your list as it is similar to what I need this Christmas 🎄 Thanks for the list

  36. TColeman
    December 5, 2017 / 2:58 pm

    All of this sounds amazing! I love phones that are of color. They just have so much more personality.

  37. Courtney Blacher

    These are absolutely great list! Last year I had a hard time to make a gift idea list for my relatives! This is a big help for me.

    Your Christmas wishlist is very cute. I don’t think I have ever created one. I will always have flights or hotel stays on my Christmas wish list though.

    December 5, 2017 / 4:49 pm

    Im surprised you put the iphone 7 on the list. I am actually eyeballing the X.

  40. December 5, 2017 / 4:57 pm

    I`m inlove with the coffee scarf! These are all amazing gifts!

  41. December 5, 2017 / 7:03 pm

    These all sound amazing! I hope you get all the presents you want. On my list is a Cosmopolitan subscription, some jewelry and Asos vouchers.

  42. December 5, 2017 / 7:04 pm

    You’ve got some amazing things on your list. This watch is gorgeous. I’ve been looking for something similar for so long. x

  43. December 5, 2017 / 7:05 pm

    I absolutely love that Adexe watch! I’ve actually never heard of the brand before so I think I’ll have to see what else they have on offer too! Great choices! x

  44. December 5, 2017 / 7:08 pm

    Ohh keeping a list throughout the year is a really good tip! And I’m the same with an iPhone, I never wanted to let my old one go!

    I love that watch! I’ve been telling everyone I want a new big mug, think I’m probably going to end up with about 10. I love getting new pjs and slippers as well x

  47. December 5, 2017 / 7:10 pm

    I’m the same I never know what to ask for I’m to busy wondering what to get the little one and hubby that I just forget to think about what I’d like. I love chloe to, great perfume.xx

  48. Lea
    December 5, 2017 / 7:10 pm

    These are some great things on your wish list. I too want a watch but for my birthday which is on the 24th anyways ;).
    Lea, xx

  49. December 5, 2017 / 7:13 pm

    I love the Macbook case! Mine is pretty bashed, I would love a new one! I don’t really have anything on my wishlist this year, maybe a few books or a new case for my Kindle! Nothing too exciting!
    Hels xx

  50. December 5, 2017 / 7:18 pm

    Loving your wishlist. If I try to build one, it might never end. :p

  51. December 5, 2017 / 7:21 pm

    I’ve found it so difficult to think of things I want this year – the only things on my wish list that my mum got me are new slippers and Jenson Button’s new book! But I have my eye on an Ice Watch which I might treat myself to in the new year 💖

  52. Abbie
    December 5, 2017 / 7:24 pm

    I love this wishlist! I was always the child that would want a phone for Christmas or my birthday. I have asked for a few things specifically this year so I know I am getting what I want and don’t have to shell out money for them. One thing I would like is the Kindle Voyage


  53. December 5, 2017 / 7:28 pm

    Oh what a fab list! I’ve got only one thing on my list, or well two – to be able to move in before Christmas to the apartment we just bought & started renovating and a Smeg toaster in pastel blue haha 😀

  54. Charlene McElhinney
    December 5, 2017 / 7:38 pm

    This is a fab wish list. I’ve got the iPhone 7 and it’s great, the camera is known for being excellent! <3

    Charlene McElhinney

  55. December 5, 2017 / 7:43 pm

    I’ve found it so difficult recently to try and think of presents that I want – my family and friends keep asking me what I want and I’m like aaah, I don’t know! I miss the days of being younger and it being all exciting lol. You’ve got some great ideas on your wishlist, it’s going to be pretty crazy going from an iPhone 4 to an iPhone 7! Haha.


  56. December 5, 2017 / 8:03 pm

    That scarf looks gorgeous, and so soft! I do love a good scarf this time of year; you can’t beat it on a cold day!

    Gemma x |

  57. December 5, 2017 / 11:01 pm

    I’m the exact same way, I never know what to tell my family or husband! If there is something I’m wanting, I typically just buy it myself. I would love this MacBook felt cover, so maybe I’ll send that to my husband to get me :)!

  58. December 6, 2017 / 2:43 am

    The gray case is so great. Really warm and cozy looking, yet practical. Loving the ideas as a good starting point when ya just can’t think of what to get. Thanks for sharing!

  59. December 6, 2017 / 3:05 am

    The cashmere scarf looks so luxurious and soft. I also love the watch! It’s definitely difficult to try to think of gifts you want to receive as you get older, and you have some great, practical ideas on your list

    Sondra xx

  60. December 6, 2017 / 3:40 am

    I’d love a new iphone too, even if it was just a 6. I had a 5s and absolutely loved it! Your other ideas are great too!

  61. December 6, 2017 / 6:52 am

    I love the Adexe watch! It looks so chic and elegant. Perfect gift for Christmas!

  62. December 6, 2017 / 10:14 am

    I don’t have a list I never get anything for Christmas or my bday which is Dec 22. Growing up I got gifts but as soon as I hit 18 the gifts stopped. So now I just buy myself what I want. Currently even I don’t know what to get me.

  63. December 6, 2017 / 3:04 pm

    All I want for Christmas this year is a camera to take pictures of instagram and a plane ticket to Jamaica.

  64. December 6, 2017 / 3:32 pm

    I don’t really have a wishlist this year. For the most part, we don’t really buy for each other. I tried to get them to stop giving gifts several years ago and just have a nice dinner and night together. What a great idea you had about writing a note on your phone when you see something! Hope you get some of the things on your list. Have a wonderful holiday!

  65. December 6, 2017 / 3:33 pm

  66. December 6, 2017 / 7:58 pm

    We have complete opposite wish list, but I rather do like you scarf. That seems something I may have to add to mine as well.

  67. December 6, 2017 / 8:17 pm

    Those are really fancy tems! I don’t make wishlists and have the EXACT same problem you had. It is even worse in my case because my bday is on December 9, so both questions “what do you want for your birthday/Christmas” are asked at the same time!! Is overwhelming, hahah LOL.
    Well this year I really need a new duvet coat.As the winter announces very cold and mine is already 8 years old, so probably my hubby and my mom will buy me one for my Bday. But I still don’t have any idea of what I want for Xmas 😛

  68. December 6, 2017 / 10:38 pm

    This is a great list! I need the Macbook Felt Cover! Mine is falling apart! I love the color even! I will be adding this to my list!

  69. December 7, 2017 / 12:03 am

    I love this wishlist! I think your iphone is a good edition. I want workout equipment.

    Love your wish list! Those MacBook felt cover is pretty cool! I wonder if they come in different color.

  71. December 7, 2017 / 3:01 am

    I wish to have that perfume, never had one that becomes my favorite.may be this one will be the one.

  72. Nicole Flint
    December 7, 2017 / 5:01 am

    I love that watch! Since you’re looking for a new phone upgrade if you can go ahead and get the iPhone 8!

  73. December 7, 2017 / 11:54 am

    I love that MacBook cover, I may have to add it to my wish list. That scarf looks lovely and cosy too, this is a great wish list.

  74. December 7, 2017 / 11:59 am

    Wow..You’ve got a number of amazing things on your list.My choice is Apple 7, but not in pink…i love gold.

  75. December 7, 2017 / 12:00 pm

    Wow..there are some amazing things on your list.
    My choice is Apple 7, but not in pink…i love gold.

  76. December 7, 2017 / 12:54 pm

    I like that Macbook case! The iPhone 7 is a huge upgrade from the 4! I was at the 5 than upgraded to the 7!

  77. Jhoan
    December 7, 2017 / 1:20 pm

    The phone and Macbook are incredible wish list items!

  78. December 7, 2017 / 4:53 pm

    Your Christmas wishlist is luring me. But cannot have all. I will consider pretty cashmere scarf for chilly winter.

  79. Anna
    December 7, 2017 / 11:10 pm

    I would also ask for macbook cover haha . well thought out list i would say! I wish you goodluck, hope you get all of your items on your list 🙂

    I do really love the scent of this Cashemere Perfume it gives me a fresh smell and this coffee scarf looks so stylish and I think this is perfect for my white blouse. Great pick hun!!

  81. December 10, 2017 / 1:40 am

    These are some great wish list ideas… I would love to try the cashemere perfume as I never tried it before.

  82. December 10, 2017 / 5:22 am

    My list includes Cashmere Perfume and a drone. If not a drone then I definitely want the latest iPhone or iPad.

  83. December 10, 2017 / 11:56 am

    I love your wishlist, but I haven’t yet built mine! 🙂 I’m definitely doing it. 🙂
