My Christmas Wish List

The holiday season is here, and it is the time when we usually all buy gifts for each other for Christmas day but with the pandemic, it just has not happened. This is also the time of year when I have my personal wish list, things that I would love to have but do not necessarily buy for myself. It is more of an aspirational thing, really. I would love to have these things but at the same time I have deemed them not practical for various reasons. Still, being the holidays and wishing that I were a kid that Santa has put on the good kids list, I make my list and hope that maybe one day, I can convince myself to buy them.

Honestly, this year the things I would love to have are not material, but I do not think that anyone would be interested in reading my “beauty pageant answers” to what I want this Christmas so I will just move on to the things you can buy. Some of these I can buy for myself, but I am just too frugal to do so (that and I always have this guilt about buying nice things for myself, but that is for a different post in the very distant future).

I am not going to share all the things that I would love to have. There are a lot of clothes, shoes, and makeup, and hair/skincare products that I would be happy to receive/own, but that would be a really long list that no one would be interested in. Plus, being at a place in my life where I hardly ever go out, those things just do not make sense for me right now.

So, without any more rambling, here are some of the items on my Christmas Wish List!


Samsung Galaxy Tab s7+

I currently own an iPad and an Apple pencil. The tablet has been useful for me at work and for my side projects, but I have always been an android girl and I really love using the pencil on my Note 10. When I saw that the s7+ had its own pen AND a keyboard cover, I just knew that this was something I wanted. I am really hoping that the pen on the tablet is just as good (if not better) than the one with the Note 10. Having a keyboard cover also seems more practical than me carrying around the Bluetooth keyboard I bought to pair with my iPad.

Unfortunately, this is just too pricey for me to buy. Whenever I think of buying it, I think of how many other things I can buy for the price of this one. I would still love to own one, but maybe when the price goes down a bit unless Santa deems me worthy.


Samsung Galaxy Watch 3

I currently own a Galaxy watch, but it is probably the most basic one they have, and it came free with the Note 10 when I purchased it last year. The current watch I own has been extremely useful for me and finding out the other features of this new and better version makes me want to own one.

The one thing holding me back is being worried about the size I want to get. I have a big wrist, but I also do not want the bulky look of the bigger size. I would know for sure if I gave it a try but that would mean going out to the mall to check it out, something that I do not want to do right now. I have kept away from the malls to stay safe this long, I am not going to risk it for a watch.


Canon m50/ Canon Powershot Mark III

Now this is a weird one for my wish list. I actually own an M50, but there is something wrong with it and I cannot have it fixed (see my reason for not buying the Galaxy watch). I love this camera so much and would like to be able to use it.

I am also interested in the Powershot Mark III because they say it is perfect for vlogging, which my family wants to do so I have also been considering it. Again, not sure about it since I do have an M50 and the practical thing to do would be to have it fixed (but I do not go to public places other than the office). I am very curious about this, maybe someday when it is safe, I will go and check it out.


Kindle Paperwhite

I love to read, and I have been reading from my tablet and phone and it has been terrible for my eyes. This one I have always been meaning to buy because it is not too big, and it is not that bad for my eyes. I have been eyeing the 32GB version because I have so many books on my Amazon list that I have yet to read and would like to do so without causing permanent damage to my eyes. Sadly, this is always out of stock when I check the online stores. The 8GB is available but based on experience, I need the 32GB one more.

Well, those are some of the things on my list. Some of the things I would love are more of the adulting variety (mostly home improvements) and would be too long to elaborate on. These are some of those you can put in a box and hand over as a gift, and maybe one day I will get them (as a gift to myself, if I decide to do so). Just like everyone else though, what I would really love is for this pandemic to be over. For all of us to be safe, and to be able to do the things we used to pre-COVID. 

What about you? If you could have anything you want this Christmas, what would it be?
