I wanted to do an update to my virtual vision board. Everything on my previous blogpost is still current; these are just things that I also want. I love looking at other people’s list, because it gives me ideas on what I should get other people. So, use my list to find something cool for your friends and family.
On a side note: Anyone knows Santa, please forward my list to him please. I’ve been about 90% nice–maybe 95%. That’s not bad, right?
1. Naked Palette 2
Any makeup lovers out there? Do you know any make up lovers? Well, if you want to earn some major brownie points, try getting your hands on the Urban Decay Naked Palette 2. I’m pretty sure it’s all sold out by now and it’s only a day old. This product can be found at Sephora, Ulta, or any place that carries Urban Decay cosmetics. Retail price: I’m not 100% sure, but #1 was about $50.
2. Dr. Dre Studio Beats (purple)
Any music lover would love these headphones, especially if he or she is traveling anytime soon. These noise canceling studio headphones brings out such clarity in a song that there are beats that you never knew existed. Personally, I want the purple one, but it comes in wide variety of colors (like black, white, orange, blue, etc.) Right now is a good time to buy, because it’s at the lowest price I’ve ever seen. Retail price: $299.
3. Go Pro Hero2
1080p waterproof, shockproof, and windproof camera/camcorder for that guy who loves to play hard. I want this camera for Europe. It’s small, durable, and easy to use. I wouldn’t use this for taking picture, even though you can, but I would film my travels around town. Imagine: go pro on top of a bike helmet filming my bike ride around Amsterdam. Retail price: $300
4. Nook Tablet
I know I made a huge deal about the Kindle Fire, but after the dust settled, I realized that the Nook Tablet was more my style. This is great for the person who loves, to read, surf the internet, and watch movies on the go. I love the fact that if there is anything wrong with the tablet, any Barnes and Noble with a certified Nook technician can help. Unlike the Kindle, where tech support is probably through a phone. Retail price: $250
One year subscription to any streaming tv/movie site, like Netflix and Hulu Plus. This is a great gift for that person who is hard to buy a gift for. I never met a person who hated movies, so this gift is a sure way to happiness. I have netflix and hulu plus, but I would love for someone to pay for my subscription for one year. So, renewing a subscription can be a great gift as well. Retail price: Depends on the company. Usually around $8 a month.
The powermat would be a great gift for the whole family. A powermat is a flat mat that charges electronics, including cell phones. There are times where I don’t feel like tethering my iPhone to the charging cord. This would be a great, because I can just “set it and forget it.” Retail price: $73
7. iPhone bottle opener case
Sorry non-iPhone users, but I’m sure there are cool cases for other phones. This gift is for people who: 1. loves to drink and 2. loves their iPhone. Add that together and get this magnificent gift. Retail price: $7 – $20
8. Passion Molekine series
I don’t know the obsession with Moleskines are, but these Passion Series are pretty cool. I can find a bunch of people that could use a recipe or wine journal. I think this would be a great stocking stuffer. Retail price: $14 (on Amazon)
9. Movies tickets
I am always shocked at the prices of movie…concession food. You thought I was going to say tickets! Well, tickets are expensive, but for a good movie, it’s well worth it. What’s not worth it is the expensive crappy popcorn that the movie workers always pressure you to buy the larger size for “only $.50 more”. Sometimes, it would be nice to grab a hot dog or pretzel at the concession stand, instead of hiding it in my oversize purse that doubles as my overnight bag.
10. Groupon or LivingSocial gift card
I can’t imagine the mount of money I’ve spent on Groupon and LivingSocial. The great thing about these site is that the thing on sale is so random. For example, the last LivingSocial deal was a $15 5 Big Macs and 5 french fries from McDonalds. And Groupon’s last one was lasik eye surgery. I’m sure even the most pickiest gift receiver can find something from these sites.
What’s on your santa list? Have you been a good boy or girl?
