It's just over ten weeks away. Have you started dropping hints yet? Or don't you expect anything?
I'm not one for dropping hints, I'd rather aim high and be direct. So I'd like a nice shiny Kindle please. I've wanted one for ages, hemmed and hawed for good measure and now I know it's the gadget for me.
I'll probably end up buying one myself as I think you can only buy them from Amazon. Plus I'll get it from the dot com site as they're cheaper. For some reason they cost around $170 in the UK, yet they're $140 in the US.
Anyway - what would you like for Christmas. And you can't say 'all my family' because hopefully that's a given
Hi Froggy - this is my first Christmas on HP and since writing all my hubs involves a lot of virtual shopping, my Christmas list is the biggest it has ever been this year. My dream list would include a tablet PC but that's not realistic for our budget so I would make do with some retro sweets - http://www.aquarterof.co.uk/1980s-decad … 51104.html
Funny how eating Spacey Gracey's sweets/candy will part most folks from their two front teeth
No retro candy for me ... I have enough trouble with my teeth.
lol Diane same here but you can't say that - has to be a gift. No filth talk
That's not filthy, it's a beautiful thing.
But if you insinst, I guess I will say a laptop, I only have a desktop right now, to confined to one area.
Since Christmas is about giving I would like to have a box full of stuff (which people need) that I can give away, would be happy to see some smiles and happiness light uptheir faces!!
I just want to catch that jolly rodgering little fat man who keeps leaving sooty foot prints all over the carpet and my pet sheep
I never see him anymore, guess I've been too naughty these past oh I don't know 20 yrs.
@ Diane ... I know, I was jesting And a laptop is a great idea. I would like an one that's English by default, instead of Portuguese. Funny but my Portugeuse OH speaks to me in English, whilst the laptop clings to it's Latin based lingo
@ PD - I wouldn't worry half so much about the footprints on the carpet as I would about the ones on the sheep. Do they look disturbed after he's been?
@ Sofs - a lovely sentiment and I completely agree. One of my favorite things is the giving and the smiles
Funny you should mention that FD
I've noticed those woolly red boots that he wears...
Bahhhhh!!! I always thought they were (for) stocking stuffing
This year for Christmas my kids and I are working on a charity thing. We are having a bake sale to earn money to buy gifts to fill shoe boxes for kids in other countries. As for what I selfishly want for myself, fuzzy slippers, some Uggs, books, and an Ice Cream machine. What I am already going to get tho...makes me so happy I honestly dont want a single other gift.
Oh, and Im not for hinting either, Ive had this list for years and say it very clearly when asked what I want.
I haven’t really thought about Christmas yet, my birthday is the day before so I have two decisions to make before then. My wife is expecting our first child, due in 3 weeks, and to be honest I can’t see past that.
It does mean Santa will begin visiting our home again, yay!
I want the Kindle DX REALLY bad! So BAD I wrote a hub about it and emailed to my beloved!
"...All I want for christmas is you.." *wistling*
Giving me tips already... still almost 3 months to christmas...
@ DMNM - that's a lovely idea! Like Sofs said, giving is the best present
@ PD - the red boots are a sing of ... something untoward *nods*
@ Jay - huh?
@ stephanie ... I hope you get that trip sorted. What a cool Christmas gift. Travel with family
@ Hublim - I wish you and you wife all the best. The patter of tiny feet and a few sleepless nights are heading your way. Let us know how baby Hublim is once he or she arrives
@ petersimon - shurrup ye! Forever exaggerating. Haven't we already spoke about this? Just start saving. I'm giving you a head start. I would like a ➜➜➜ Kindle please. In return, you can have whatever you want ヅ
i am not dropping hints.
i am leaving a list in my local craft shop of things i want
and sending the little darlings there
actually i want christmas to be cancelled so I can stay in bed
probably no one will have any $$ left , we have a big wedding in three weeks.
if they have $$ left a Sony Bravia flat screen tv
if absolutely no $ left, a bouquet of fresh flowers
hope you get the kindle, you'll love it.
More cool Christmas wishes
@ Rebekah - I hope so too but no matter if not, I'll save up and buy one at some point. And it will be a US one as they are cheaper. I'll be looking for a Kindle hub at some point, so a hubber can have the commission
if you are on Facebook, search Amazon Kindle and 'like' them.
they have a free giveway going on now, 10 more days to enter.
http://g-ecx.images-amazon.com/images/G … 54x330.jpg
Nice one Rebekah - on my way to do just that! I'd love one, all those books I could d/load, read, explore. TBH I'll probably end up going dusty in a corner if I have access to millions upon millions of words but you know ... reading ain't for wimps
Well how incredibly stupid of Kindle. I went to enter. There's a drop down box with all the countries, I chose UK then an error message popped up - only US residents can enter.
How bloody singular of Kindle. I'm going to complain. And unlike them. Swines
Ahhh don't worry about it Rebekah - you weren't to know. But Kindle did
a nice gift card to spend at the craft store would be good.
We sure are different in our wishes. But I'm sticking with a Kindle. And slippers. Some pajamas. A new bracelet charm (this for Simões in case he reads lol) and a woolly hat. Gets real cold in Yorkshire
As for our dog - I hope Santa rewires her brain for Christmas.Our dog is broken
I want a new bed! I gave my giant, lovely king size bed to my daughter and her hubby. (I moved and downsized this year.) Now I want a nice one for me. And I'd like an ipad to go with it.
...i'm thinking about a dyson...not for me to use...but for someone else.....
...now why is that...i need my carpets cleaned from time to time....
Yes, and I know that you and I would have to do it ourselves!! So if you need a good sucker, make sure it's a good one!
...okay...okay....i really want someone do some nice 'pin striping' for me....
SWOH - I simply can't fault your Christmas wish. I adore hoovers to the point I hoover for no point. I obsess about them when I need a knew one. I'm a real hoover connoisseur. Goodness only knows why but if someone bought me the latest cylinder Bissel I'd be in clover.
Just bought a new one three weeks ago. Took me weeks of browsing different models before I chose one. I'm forever dragging it round behind me. In fact - it's a better pet than our broken dog
Which brings me to Daniel - I hope you get your bed. As for fixing up Boo, she is committed to random acts of stupidness. She managed to kill a plastic sack earlier. I was mortified. Mind you, when she realized that she'd just slaughtered a big bag of air, so was she
I'm glad someone likes a vaccuum!....i'm afraid of them!
Kill a plastic bag. That is a keeper. Love to see the video on that!!
Have a groovy day, too!
Boo is so wonderfully neurotic that I keep thinking of making a site, to share her stupidity with the world. As an example, she is a very committed air burier of her possessions.
She absolutely does not trust me to not chew her bones, play with her toys or leave her frisbee alone. Her new favorite place is beneath our bed. She spends many a half hour tunneling down to Oz - then eyeing me suspiciously. The minute I move, she's goes and 'digs' up the supposedly hidden item, then starts all over again.
And then there's her dead balls ...
Her real name is Boo Radley. Suits her. And for the record - she also has a very difficult relation with our hoover. They hate each other
I hate hoovering at home, but I like doing it at work. When I'm feeling a bit lazy, and everyone else is busy and it seems there's nothing for me to do, I just get out the hoover and look busy.
Another good way of looking busy is by holding some kind of cleaning cloth - you don't have to actually do anything with it, but you'll look busy.
so.....r u sayin' you wanna 'get busy' for xmas?
later...off to work....
I've already sent my list to Santa....
I need a new HD flip camera
A new laptop
A better digital camera
Another computer desk and better chair
Some undies and socks (Like every Christmas bah humbug!)
Some more Prismacolor pencils.....
at least one Adsense click by a wed surfer before the new year would be much appreciated
how will you know whether they are married or not?
I want an amazon gift card worth 250 USD so that I can buy all the books of Paolo Coelho
Can I have one more wish -- return ticket to the Philippines -- it costs 1300 USD
whirled peas would be nice
also an Ipad or other touchscreen laptop - can't decide which
also I would like to lose 50 pounds (weight) without having to give up any food or put forth any effort
(probably I will get sick and lose weight, that's how I've done it in the past so I should know better than to ask)
I did write a hub about my Christmas wish list - I'd like more traffic to it ?
Whirled peas? It's a delicious, healthy concoction that magically enables everyone be nice to each other.
Unfortunately, the effects wear off after a couple of days
Really? I'm going to have a look on Wikipedia or somewhere ...
EDIT: 'Whirled Peas is a surf music band formed in 1992, in Austin, Texas. They took their name from a bumper sticker reading "Visualize World Peace", which they twisted into "Visualize Whirled Peas". This lead to bumper stickers with this phrase on it instead.'
Okay, I get it
I want a baby, but considering they take nine months to cook, it won't happen.
I want a million dollars.. but since that may be aiming a little high I wouldn't mind finding a way to get my sh!t together. lol
on material aspect I want a new cellphone.. mine is like a zombie already, almost dead, but with life, my cellphone almost completely ruined, can't bring it out in a meeting but text and call function is still okey.. Sony Ericsson is a good brand, still fighting for life no matter how awful it looks.

It is said that people with a gap in their two front teeth are sexy and "cuter." What is your take?Some cultures think of the gap as a "beauty mark," while other cultures say the gap brings luck or wealth. Have you had an experience with a person who has the gap in their teeth?...

How to I stop my son from chewing food with his front teeth?He predominently chews food with his front teeth and they are showing significant signs of wear. He will be losing his baby teeth soon and I am concerned that he will damage his adult teeth by continuing to chew with his front teeth.

Just as a point of discussion . . . We frequently hear phrases like; `he's lowering the child poverty rates. ' or "he's lifting children out of poverty," used as evidence of accomplishment, (I wanted to add real to that. but, no), by the "He." I don't think that is accurate. I...

Many people writing different things. But I and I'm sure that many other people would like to know the potential of hubpages. Thanks for answers.
