Holiday Wish List

27 Nov

So I was asked to make a list of the things I want for the holidays. I was told to make sure it was not ridiculous. I considered it a challenge to be completely obscure. (Followed by things your girlfriend/wife/daughter/sister might actually want this holiday season.)

  1. My first answer to this was a football helmet full of cottage cheese. If you saw the popular 90’s movie Airheads, you would get this obscure reference. If you haven’t seen it… you should.
  2. A day off. Oh wait… You don’t get those when you have a business. Grrrrr…
  3. New boobs = Need new bras.
  4. Office Space. Actual office space. In the Quincy area. Not the movie Office Space. Although also a great movie with a TON of awesome obscure references. Have you seen my stapler? http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=pHHZBmF8mk4
  5. New Louboutins. Because I love obnoxious shoes.
  6. A new car. Preferably of the Mercedes variety.
  7. Gay Personal Assistant/Gay Best Friend (GPA/GBA) on payroll. Not only to help me with my business… but sometimes I don’t know which shoes to wear. Also, sometimes he should not wear pants. Because, lets face it, Gay men always have better underwear than straight men.
  8. A dog. Which my assistant will also be taking care of. He told me he will not take care of a pig named “Kosher” or a piranha named “Nemo.” Which I accept, because I’m not sure of the legal status of these animals in the State of Massachusetts.
  9. My significant other to finish law school. Because I have obscure legal questions like “what is the status of having a pig or a piranha for a pet?” and “is ‘I thought speed limits were suggestions’ a viable defense?”
  10. A $10,000 gift card to Starbucks. My CPA, Matt Traiger, told me I have a problem. And I’d like a gift card for gas. I’ll take that in the amount of $25,000. Or I’ll accept stock in Exxon/Mobile.
  11. The Helicopter button in my new Benz. You know, the one you press so your car can fly over 93 when it’s gridlocked. Oh right. That’s EVERYDAY.
  12. An alarm clock that is also capable of removing me from my bed. And putting me in the shower. And cooking. And cleaning. Oh wait… maybe my GPA can do that. Or at least hire people to do that stuff.

I don’t think this stuff is TOO much to ask for.

Ok, but for REAL:

Cool Gifts This Season

Having a hard time finding the perfect gift?  Here’s a few things every female fancies (you can’t go wrong)!

Cute Boutique-y Jewelry? I recommend:

Gift Certificates For:

  • a manicure/pedicure ($15-$50)
  • a facial ($45-$150)
  • her favorite hair salon (be sure not to get just ANY salon)
  • a massage ($60-$100)
  • a day at the spa
  • A nice robe/winter gloves/hat/scarf.  We all wear them… we can always use a new one.
  • This is cool from Target (it said over 3,000 participating spas, but I’m not sure which ones):

  • A Little More Thoughtful:
  • A New Flat Iron (some good names: GHD, CHI, and BaByliss) ($150-$350)
  • Good Shampoo (like my personal favorite, Melu by Davines ~$26.50/bottle http://www.davines.com/en/products/view/dehc-melu-shampoo )

  • a subscription to New Beauty Magazine (www.newbeauty.com) LOVE IT! $9.99/issue
  • NARS Turkish Delight Lip Gloss–looks good on literally everyone (Sephora $22) http://www.narscosmetics.com/color/lips/~/lip-gloss
  • Along the lines of Sephora (which is at every mall) there are some really cool, easy gifts in there.  I love their kits of things like “mascara’s” and “lip glosses.”
  • New Make-up Brushes (check out Sephora again) http://www.sephora.com/makeup-brushes-applicators-makeup
  • Jewelry- but beware– jewelry is a very personalized gift.  Diamonds and pearls are always classy… but is she a diamond girl?  bling bling? or more subtle? like classy pearls?  Does she usually wear gold? or silver?  I once broke up with a guy who bought me aquamarines for an anniversary gift (not because I’m shallow, but because after dating someone for a year, you should know what kind of jewelry that person wears.  I realized it was a dead end relationship.)
  • Lulu Lemon.  For your sporty chick.  (Has anyone seen the commercial where the chick is talking all about why she wears yoga clothes–she bikes, she does yoga, she hits the gym– and then she says “Who am I kidding, I wear Yoga pants because I’m lazy” ahahaha) http://shop.lululemon.com/home.jsp?locale=en_US&sl=US
  • The circle scarf. Very comfy. Very stylish. Check out these deals at Nordstom.com http://shop.nordstrom.com/c/lulu?cm_ven=google&cm_cat=juniors_brand&cm_pla=lulu&cm_ite=lulu%20scarf_b&ef_id=f85OuV1@Z0oAAEZF:20121127045318:s

Just So You Know…

Bags–A crash course

  • Dooney and Bourke (otherwise known as D&B) $$
  • Coach $$$
  • Chanel/Gucci/Burberry/Louis Vuitton $$$$$$$$$

Don’t even think about buying her shoes. — however the book “100 Shoes: the Costume Institute/the Metropolitan Museum of Art” with intro by Sarah Jessica Parker… that’s a great gift!

100 Shoes: The Costume Institute / The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Ask a Chick!

My friend Megan swears by “asking Steph at Nordstrom’s in Natick;” all you need is a size and she can style you up (remember to check the tag of your girls clothes… and also keep in mind every brand is different, confusing and annoying–yea we know!).  If you can’t make it to Natick, that’s ok.  A lot of the high end stores have staff that are MORE than helpful.

Wrap It Up. 

Gifts should come in an exciting box.  So, wrap it up!


Happy Holidays! ~ LK
