I need a Christmas list


Senior Member
For me. I’m drawing a blank. I planned on asking for a trip. I follow a photographer on TikTok and really want to have him do a photo shoot. He is located on the other side of the country. It would have been $$$$. It is as far out of my normal as it could possibly be. I’m chickening out asking mainly because any negative reaction would undo me and I can’t imagine a positive reaction from my DH. (Another story for another day).

My family, especially my DH, is HORRIBLE with gift giving. 95% of the time I have to order my own gifts. Everything he bought on his own for me last year either came from the gas station or grocery store. Think lottery scratch offs and $.99 body wash in rose scent. I’ve tried an Amazon wish list but he claims he doesn’t know how to Amazon and I should just pick something from the list and order it.

I am going to pick out my main gift (probably a kayak that I will be told I don’t want???) but I need some other things that I can ask for. My DS2 (20) is good about getting me something but he will spend too much $ that he doesn’t have. DS1 (22) will ask on Christmas Eve if tomorrow is Christmas.

I need some $10-50 ideas. I’m drawing a blank.
