Christmas and birthday wishlist

12:00:00 AM

The -Ber months are here, and that means Christmas is just around the corner! That means I need to start putting together a gift list. I do give gifts, but because I'm not a big shopper, I only give presents to a select few. I don't mind spending if it's for the people who matter to me.

I also do a little shopping for myself during the season! What's the point of working hard if I don't occasionally indulge, right? Besides, my birthday is so close to Christmas that I think I'm entitled to some niceties. Below is my material wishlist for Christmas/my birthday this year:


A thousand books at my fingertips

My best friend, Joandrea, has been bugging me to get one since last year, and I kept making excuses not to get one. But then I figured, I am a voracious reader, and my current bookshelf at home can only hold so many titles. Although I will always prefer to read paperbacks, I figured I should invest on a Kindle.

Moleskine Passions - Wine Journal
Carnet Vins

As I am slowly educating myself about wine, I figured this journal would be a great way to document my journey from one varietal/brand/country/bottle to the next. If I had to choose between the Kindle and this, I'd choose this for now - I still have a lot of paperbacks waiting to be read, anyway.

Moleskine The Little Prince 2013 Planner

This is something I've been getting every year since 2009. I consistently buy the Daily Planner, so I get one page per day. I write my color-coded To Do Lists on these pages, and on lighter days, I use the space to write highlights, quotes, ideas. My friend Clarisse pointed out that Moleskine notebooks are a perfect match for my old soul.

Pool Cue
Hard to find

I badly miss billiards. I posted about looking for a nice cue stick last August, and to this day, I have yet to find one that suits me. I do hope I find one by Christmas, though. My friend Jerry and I are going to have a re-match (he'll try to take back the Hustler crown he passed on to me).

My actual wishlist is quite long, but a lot of the items listed there are not 'things' per se - good health and happiness, peace of mind, new experiences for the coming year, success, etc. - for me and for the people I care about. Turns out, I'm not that materialistic, after all.
