Top Ten Christmas Gifts

Aug 2, 2008
Have I told you just how much I love Christmas? What's not to love? Fun in the snow, friends and family, a nice cup of cocoa or buttered rum, and some turkey, there's nothing better. Did I forget something? Oh, yeahpresents! I love opening presents, that bit of a flutter in your stomach you get when you open that perfect gift, and the thrill that comes when you know you've done the same for a loved one. The hardest part is narrowing down what you want each Christmas, but here are my top ten Christmas gifts.

Any type of musical instrument would be great too. I?ve always wanted to learn to play the violin. And I could also use a cushion for my piano stool, as it is a bit hard to sit on for any length of time. But who wants to buy a cushion? I could use a nice down jacket for winter as its pretty cold up here. Throw in some gloves too so I can make snowballs.

Being practical still, a few woolly sweaters wouldn't go amiss. I wouldn't mind an electric blanket too. I always like to receive books at Christmas. When the next Harry Potter book and DVD comes out, I definitely want them. A nice bottle of perfume under the tree would be most welcome. I don't mind what brand, as long as it's French! I know, I have expensive tastes.

Food is always a welcome gift and I like Belgian, chocolate truffles and English breakfast marmalade. Good wine is also a nice treat. That's about it for a top ten Christmas Gifts list, give or take a gift or two. I really don't mind what people get me as long as it's given with love and they've kept the receipt!

The best thing about Christmas for me is the giving of presents. I love to find just the right thing for loved ones. They make lists too, but I always get them a surprise that isn't on the list as well. Sometimes, I'll buy tickets for a show I know someone wants to see. I don't like to get anyone a gift voucher, if I can help it. It looks like you haven't made any effort, but I must admit I've done it on occasion when I've been desperate for ideas. Top ten Christmas gifts for children and teenagers in general are the latest computer games and ipods, I guess. Technology changes so fast. The classic board games remain however, and you can't beat the good, old train set or doll's house.
