What Do You Really Want for Christmas?

Posted by Madison on November 27, 2013

Our holiday gift guide series continues this week with a fun twist… what people really want for Christmas!

It’s fun to work on holiday gift lists for others, but let’s face it, the hardest person to make a list for is yourself. Especially as an adult, I find that when anyone asks me “What do you want for Christmas?” I never have any ideas. Do you ever find yourself in the same situation?

I know that I find it’s much easier to shop for someone else if they give me some ideas, even if they aren’t specific, so they would probably appreciate it if we could do the same for them. Just a few ideas on a wishlist could trigger some inspiration for various gifts.

To give you some inspiration and help create a list of what people really want for Christmas I asked Simply Contests readers to share what is on their wishlist this holiday season in the Bodycology Gift Set Giveaway. (There’s more about the Simply Contests site in our $100 Cash Holiday Giveaway.)
