post-christmas christmas list

all i want for christmas is everything.

but actually, i did get all the stuff i wanted this year. and more. so that was pretty lit. i wanted to make a list of things i got, things i bought, and things i’m jealous my friends got that i didn’t even know i wanted.

first off, i shopped exclusively online, and my family did mostly online as well. i think going to the mall these days is just silly when you can buy just about anything with free shipping from amazon.


gifts i got:

  • apple airpods
    • these were at the top of my list for a few reasons – one, because i needed wireless headphones to stream my pvolve workouts at the gym, but more importantly because everyone at work has them and i wanted to be trendy and cool like them
  • matching stole, gloves, and purse
    • i thought this was one of the sweetest gifts i got this year. my mom created a monochrome outfit from the coat i have and bought a stole, gloves, and a purse so i could shoot the look. she is so crazy thoughtful
  • instagrammers guide to nyc
    • anyone who knows me knows i’m obsessed with nyc and all things cute and stylish about it – poor preston had to take about 10,000 pictures of me for the trip we had in april, but now we have a book so we know the cute spots and don’t have to look for them on our own! lucky preston
  • 3 pairs of yelete workout pants
    • these are SO CUTE and so so comfortable. i got two pairs of the long ombre and one pair of the short ombre, all in mediums. they fit perfectly and are that material that holds you in but doesn’t hurt. match me in the pink and blue long ombre!
  • nike sweats
    • sooooo comfy and what i love about these is you can definitely dress them up or dress them down with streetstyle trends these days
  • nike shoes
    • these shoes are the bomb, they’re so lightweight and the grey is perfect – everyone knows i love a good groutfit
  • butt masks
    • okay i had never heard of these before but my mom found them on amazon and i am so glad she did. y’all know i love my booty, so why not give it the love i dedicate to my face?! these are literally masks for your butt. i got a pack of four and they are so cute and totally shelf or flat-lay worthy

gifts i bought:

  • masterclass pass
    • this gift was for my dad and one for his friend mike as well, but secretly its more for me. its an unlimited all-access pass to every online class that masterclass has to offer. we’ve started with the james suckling wine appreciation class, duh, but i cannot wait to dive into some of the writing courses, guitar, singing, even science and economics
  • shaker set
    • this is the chicest little set for your kitchen counter and comes with a great book full of the classics and modern drinks. a staple for any fellow alcoholic
  • vinyl records
    • we have a record player at my house and we just love it – there is something so fun about playing a record rather than streaming something from a speaker. we all got a lot of records this year (fleetwood mac, a star is born, guardians 1 & 2) and i can’t stop jamming out
  • wine chiller
    • if you’re a wine snob like my family, you’ll love this chiller. everyone knows whites and reds need to be chilled to be best enjoyed, but it’s so annoying to have to wait and leave the bottle in the fridge. this instead is a metal rod and aerator that you keep in the freezer. when you want your wine, take it out and plop it into your bottle to keep beverages cold without having to wait! just be sure to pour a little taster out before you put the rod in, as some bottles are filled too high to add the rod immediately
  • hair curler
    • mom and i both struggle with ultra flat hair, so i got her this really cool volumizing, sleeking, curling device that does all three with a hairbrush-like rod. we’ve been loving it so far and it gives great shape and body
  • womens gloves
    • momma is off to paris soon, so nice, warm gloves were a must considering her old ones were CLOTH and covered in coffee stains (oops, sorry!)
  • egg pore balm
    • haven’t tried this yet but can’t wait to – is rumored to give you ultra-smooth skin with like no trace of pores. its facetune in a bottle
  • passport holder
    • again, for mom. this is a really cute but still simple/modern passport holder that carries your passport and a few cards. when you’re traveling abroad its so important to have your passport with you always, and my mom is always so worried about having her purse stolen that i thought this was an easy one-stop guarantee that she has everything she needs without needing a purse
  • mens joggers
    • casey was in desperate need of joggers and these ones are pretty cool with the zipper pocket
  • carhartt jacket
    • keeps my electrician warm, you can’t go wrong with a carhartt jacket. however, i bought mine at carhartt, and i would recommend buying at dicks for easier returns when you buy him a small and he complains that he’s actually a medium. ok honey.
  • peacoat
    • everyone needs a good winter coat and for the wannabe stylish guys in your life, this is perfect. it’s still very understated but warm and classic
  • jersey
    • if you see your SO on sundays, i hate you
  • wallet
    • i spent a pretty solid amount of time picking out a mens wallet because frankly the needs could not be different from what i would look for in a wallet. i searched high and low for good quality but still understated, masculine, and very streamlined. no one wants a big lump in their pants (debatable i guess)
  • golf pants
    • nike has some great golf pant options on amazon and they came in fitting like a glove
  • calphalon cookware
    • for the chef in your life, get them new pots and pans. you truly cannot go wrong. my dad’s face just lit up at the idea that he could finally throw away the old pots he’s been using, and calphalon is a fantastic brand to gift to your mini guy fieri
  • sitting pillow
    • casey plays a lot of video games – a lot – and this memory foam sitting pillow is great for reading, video games, hell, even eating in bed
  • skincare pillow cases
    • if youre picky about skincare like we are at the price family household, you know how bad pillowcases are for your skin. check out these skincare pillowcases that actually help keep your face clean and bacteria-free even while you sleep
  • golf glove and ballsack
    • yes, you read that right. a golf ballsack. its pretty funny looking and though i doubt it will ever get used, it’s a great stocking stuffer. plus the glove says “nice shot” right down the middle finger for less-than-tiger-status players

gifts everyone else got that now i wish i did:

  • fleece sweater
    • these are so cute and so so cozy and i regret not asking for one. with the teddy coat trend still on a big high, i feel like these are a good everyday alternative to the oversized fuzzy jackets
  • big statement coat
  • puff ball beanie
    • ugh so cute and so perfect for any winter trip! channeling my inner snow bunny in this
  • slippers
    • ugg slippers look so comfortable and i want that for myself. plus then kali can have free range on all my cozy socks
  • a fiancé
    • just kidding. mostly

 

anything you got that you want to share? let me know & i can add it to this list and also envy you.
