I’m turning 26 on 18 March, and I have no idea how I’m going to be spending the day, but I’m very excited. And, as usual, I have compiled a little wishlist of things I would (hypothetically, tee hee) love to receive as gifts.
- A Daniel Wellington watch (with rose gold edges) – I’ve been wanting this for about a year, and it’s so gorgeous and sophisticated, yet not at all flashy…
- Dining out at fancy restaurants – I love a good meal at a good restaurant, and this sort of treat is one which might seem like a “waste of money” for some, but for me it is one of the loveliest experiences; I don’t forget special meals out, and I cherish the memories and the time spent with special people.
- Travel – whether it’s just the planning or whether it’s a concrete train/plane ticket, travel is what I ache for every day. And now that I live in the centre of Europe, it’s so easy (and quite surreal) to think about how, for example, I can be in the heart of Paris in two hours (TWO HOURS).
- Crooked House (Agatha Christie) – I’m becoming quite the Christie fan, and I’ve heard fantastic things about this one, so it’s next in line and would be the perfect gift. <3
- The Ocean at the End of the Lane (Neil Gaiman) – I’ve heard such excellent things about Neil Gaiman, and it’s high time that I give one of his books a go. This one has been given some pretty good reviews, so I think it could be a good gift for me to start off with his oeuvre, as it were.
- Diptyque Vanille candle – I finally forked out the money for a Diptyque candle at the end of January, and I can see what the fuss is about. Even Dave, my boyfriend, has been pestering me to “put on Feu de Bois” in the evenings. They’re magical candles, and I’d love to own another one soon.
Other options include: nice perfume (which I haven’t been able to find anywhere), a leather jacket I’ve had my eye on, and just more books.
So, just a few things, apart from gender equality and world peace and stuff. And perhaps this wishlist has inspired you to buy a gift for a special person in your own life (even if it’s just yourself). :)
