I know as you get older their are fewer material things that you desire, but usually you can find something to put on your ‘wish list’. I know I have things that are not necessities, but if I were to receive them as a gift, I’d be thrilled.
Do you ever hear these comments from your loved ones…..“we never know what to buy you” or the “you are so hard to buy for”.
I suspect that as mothers, grandmothers, matriarchs we are notoriously selfless and are more concerned about making occasions like Christmas, special for everyone else. We don’t make a wish list or take time to consider gifts for ourselves.
I have something for you today that will change all that!!
My friend Sue shared this idea with me quite a few years ago….
Her mother-in-law insisted that every year she write a list of items she would buy herself if she could. She was to list the store where it was from, including any codes or item numbers and the cost. Her MIL would then buy her something from that list for birthdays and Christmas. Sometimes even her husband would enlist his mothers help for ideas and this system worked perfectly…. Sue always received gifts that she loved.
I now use this idea for my family too!
Your ‘Wish List’ may be as simple as a list of books to choose from that you’d like to read, charities that you’d like to donate to… or perhaps a family outing.
I’ve designed this A4 printable ‘Wish List’ to add to your Christmas Planner.
Use it for yourself…. or maybe you have someone in your life that is difficult to buy for that you can give a ‘Wish List’ to.
Happy festive crafting
