It’s that time again. Today, the first in a series of gift guides that will roll out over the next couple of weeks. And I’m starting with my own list.
As I’ve said before, this blog is about coveting and collecting experiences, not things. The thing about nesting, though, is that it requires stuff. Not new stuff, not fancy stuff, but stuff…and I didn’t have much of it when I moved into my new flat. I had so little, in fact, that I was able to move from my previous home to this one in one cab ride. I was a nomad, so I packed light.
So the little bit of spare cash I’ve had these past few months has gone to fun purchases like bookshelves and lamps and not-fun purchases like a mop and tea towels and ice cube trays. That means my wish list is a lot easier to come up with this year. I’m still making tea by boiling water in my one and only pot, so you understand…
This wish list, besides being fun to come up with and design, is the first instalment of this year’s gift guide. If you have any 31-year-old, newly-settled-down, cash-poor young women on your list this Christmas, she may like any of the items below. Probably. Perhaps.
