Catherine's Christmas List

The weeks left for sharing Christmas gift guides are coming to a an end, so Julianna and I thought we would share our Christmas lists on the last two Tuesdays before the 25th! My birthday is on Novemebr 27th which is relatively close to Christmas, so I typically make one big list for both and what I don't get for my birthday I transfer over to a Christmas list. I am not really asking for a lot this year because honestly, I don't really need anything. I have plenty of clothes to get me through the winter and there are not a ton of things that really stick out to me. However above are a few items that I really like. This L.L. Bean Sweater is a great classic piece that I know would get lots of use throughout the long and cold New England Winters. Also, I have had this L.L. Bean canvas tote my entire life (it is still in great condition) but I think this monogrammed duffle from Tuckernuck would be the perfect upgrade. In addition to this, my family and I go skiing in Vermont every weekend so it would also get lots of use! Finally, I would love a silver Kate Spade watch! The other items are a few things that I think would be fun gifts but definitely are not at the top of my list. The pink cashmere scarf is so cute, but $100 is ridiculous for a simple scarf. Overall, when it comes to making my Christmas list I think that asking for a few nicer items is the best way to go especially if you know they will get lots of use! What are you asking for this year? Make sure to check out the blog next Tuesday as well to see Julianna's list!

  1. I love what you picked, Catherine! I need that sweater and scarf. They look unbelievably cozy, and the pop of pink would be great for this time of year.
