The Top 12 Things on my Birthday Wish List

In our family, Christmas is just the beginning of gift giving season.  We have a birthday in January, February, March, and three in April!  So by the time my birthday hits at the end of April, I almost forget to add ideas to my own gift list!

{Side note: My family and extended family definitely use a gift list!  Because there are so many people in our family, it just makes life a little easier.  It doesn’t mean we have to buy only what’s on the list, but it’s a good starting point.  The online gift list we use is Giftster and love it!  So if you’re looking for an online gift list for your family, I highly recommend it!}

Before I forget, yet again, to add ideas to my list, I’ve taken some time to think about a few things I’d really like, for myself.  Here are just a few ideas I came up with:

BirthdayWishList2016

  1. SOLANA GRAY AREA RUG BY THRESHOLD | target
    I’ve been needing a new rug for my office, and I saw this one in Target the other day and just fell in love with it! 
  2. CHEVRON PENDANT NECKLACE | jcrew
    Just thought this was really pretty and would go with everything.  
  3. JANE AUSTIN CLASSIC NOVELS | anthropologie
    These novels are some of my all-time favorites!  And these ones are so beautiful, I’d love to display them in my room.  I was given the Pride and Prejudice (my favorite) book already for Christmas, so I’m hoping to complete my set.
  4. WATER LILY & ALOE CANDLE | target
    Candles are one of those things I’ve grown to love, that help me relax and think, especially while I’m working or actually able to enjoy a quiet moment in my room.  I also love how they cover up any smells that may come from having four children and three dogs!
  5. THE INSPIRED ROOM BOOK | amazon
    I’ve started collecting books that inspire me, like Styled by Emily Henderson or The Nesting Place by Myquillyn Smith.  I don’t have this one yet, and would love to have it, not only for inspiration, but it’s so pretty, too!
  6. STRIPED THROW BLANKET BY THRESHOLD | target
    Cuddling up on the couch with a soft throw blanket is one of my favorite things to do!  And I love the navy stripes on this one!  
  7. GILDED CAFE MIRROR TRAY | west elm
    I’ve been looking for a mirror try to use in my dining room, and I love the look of this one.  
  8. COPPER MEASURING CUPS | anthropologie
    I’ve been eyeing these pretty things for a while now!  I’ve never had decent measuring cups, and these would great to have in the kitchen – pretty and functional!
  9. S’IP BY S’WELL WATER BOTTLE | target
    I already have a larger swell bottle, and love it!  {I got a gold one on my trip to Napa at the Chandon vineyard!}  But this one is smaller, and so adorable!  It would be perfect for tennis, which I just started actually playing on a team!
  10. RECIPE BOX BY RIFLE PAPER CO. | anthropologie
    First of all, I love Rifle Paper Co.!  And this box would be a beautiful accent in any room, not just the kitchen.  I may even use it in my office!
  11. UNC BASEBALL HAT | amazon
    I’ve been wanting a ball cap for a while, and lost the one I got while I was a student at UNC.  So it’s time for another one – not just because they may be national champions, AGAIN!  GO TAR HEELS!!!
  12. TOMBOW FELT TIP PEN | amazon
    These are so great for hand lettering!  I’ve been working on mine, and would love more of these pens.  I’m also interested in getting an architects mechanical pencil, like this one.  

Now to put all these ideas on my actual Giftster list!  Hopefully you have enjoyed my list, and maybe it will inspire you as you think about the things that would make you happy this year on your birthday, or perhaps for Mother’s day.

Is there anything else you all think I should add?  Or something you’d like on your list?
