Dear Santa...A Gift Guide for Me!

I toyed with the idea of compiling a gift guide or two for the holidays this year, but ultimately ditched the idea because (a) I'm fairly certain the blogosphere has maxed out on gift guides this year and (b) gifting is and ought to be personal -- you know your family and friends far, far better than I do and any suggestions I have would be far inferior to whatever you can come up with.

And so, I've decided instead to compile a gift guide for me -- and if you find something you like for yourself or a loved one, then I'm flattered. Certainly, some of these items are a bit out of budget for most (if not all) of my family members and friends, so consider this a list addressed to Santa. {Oh and while you're at it Santa, can you snag me a gorgeous Chinoiserie tree, too?}

Kate Spade Genny (Eggplant) (Zappos; $263). Be still my beating heart. I loved these when I saw them in red and black, but I'm positively salivating over Kate's eggplant version.

Peacock Snow Globe (West Elm; $29). I'm not generally a fan of snow globes, but West Elm's latest series is really quite chic. And of course my favorite is the stunning white peacock. I'd leave her out on my desk all year round.

Quatrefoil Key Pendant (Tiffany's; $1000). I'm actually not a huge jewelry girl -- I tend to wear the same few pieces on a regular basis and often forget to wear any altogether. That said though, even I get a little bit weak in the knees when I see a Tiffany's box underneath the tree. And if it had this key inside it...well, I'd promise to be a very good girl this coming year.

Dove Ornament (Jonathan Adler; $24). I'm always happy to receive a gorgeous ornament or two and Jonathan Adler's newest offerings are almost too lovely to put away when the season ends.

Pavilion Lacquered Box (Thomas Paul; $36). There are innumerable uses for small, pretty lacquered boxes and I suspect you can never have too many of them laying around. I'd put this one by my bed to corral jewelry, coins and all the little things that seem to collect on nightstands.

Sake Experience Gift Set (Fresh; $95). Fresh's Sake Bath is honestly the best bath soak a girl could ask for. The smell is divine and the stuff really has a way of seeping into your bones, relaxing all the stress away. A corresponding lotion and candle would just be icing on the cake.

Hampstead Mirror (Williams-Sonoma Home; $595). This is for my powder room, where I'm dying to replace my builder basic frameless mirror with something that has a bit more pizazz.

Black & Gray Zebra print ballerinas (Pretty Ballerinas; €179). A girl can never have too many cute flats, and while just about any pair of Pretty Ballerinas would fit the bill, I can't get over the fun black, white and gray print + cute pom-poms on these.

Monogrammed Desk Pad (Dabney Lee; $65). Personalized stationery is always welcome, especially when it comes in bold prints like zig zags, greek key and quatrefoil.

Hector Throw (Missoni Home; $275). A soft cozy throw is a great wintry gift and you can never go wrong with a subtle tone-on-tone zig zag. This one has been on my wish list for several years now.

Asymmetrical Bow Pullover in Sweet Papaya (J.Crew; $78). This sweater is perfect for the office or weekend and I love the bright, fruity color. I'm also a sucker for any top that has a pretty tie around the neck.

JPK Pleated Satchel (Nordstrom; $198). Nylon is a great alternative to leather if you're looking to lighten your load (after all, have you ever noticed how heavy some leather purses can be?). I love the raisin color coupled with the gold hardware. Ample pockets and a fun lining ensure that the inside is as functional and pretty as the outside.

Vera Wang "Lisa" jeweled ballerina flat (Nordstrom; $295). I know, I know, this is the third pair of shoes to appear in this post, but I want (nay, need) these shoes specifically for my sister's wedding. I plan on wearing flats both to be more comfortable and to avoid being over a foot taller than the other bridesmaid (the groom's sister). Of course, I'm sure I could find plenty of other occasions to wear these pretties....

Now what about you? What do you want for Christmas?
