My Christmas Wish List for 2013
This is a wish list of what I would like for Christmas 2013
So about now, people are asking "What do you want for Christmas?". So, to make it easier for those wanting to buy for me, and maybe inspire others who may be struggling for ideas, I have created this lens as a Christmas Wish List of things that I would like. The items will be in no particular order as to preference.
So what does a 38 year old married Father of 3 (Actually 5, but that's a long story) want for Christmas?
(Obviously a jackpot winning lotto ticket would be nice!!)

Christmas List Question
Here is a quick Poll to see what people do about a Christmas Wish List. You might also like to add your number one Christmas Wish to the list below (What's the one thing on your list?)
Do you write a Wish List for Christmas?
What's on your List?
I'm Dreaming of a.........
Well, no harm in dreaming, and you never know what Santa can do!!
Now onto the real list....
Christmas Lists - Books - Books are awesome!!
Books. For me, you can't really go wrong with them as a Christmas Gift. As long as you stick to subject matter that I enjoy. Which is fairly broad in range. World War 1, World War 2, Vietnam War, (Particularly War memoirs) thrillers, crime, that sort of thing. And especially Stephen Hunter novels. featuring Bob Lee Swagger and now Ray Cruz.
Then there are Photography Books, How-to books (if I could decide what I wanted to learn to do, these would be awesome) and many more besides. But I will not put up an exhaustive list, just a selection of my top choices.
Dead Zero is Ray Cruz's introduction novel. Soft Target is his first adventure out by himself. Not read it yet, but can't wait. Stephen Hunter is a genius writer
OK, the release date for this is January 2013, so no chance for Christmas. But I have a birthday in February, so a little heads up happening here.....
My old Laptop is starting to run a bit slow, so I looked for a new one. And found Alienware!! (Edited 11/10/12 : OK, so I couldn't wait and went and bought the Alienware M17XR4 laptop. Bloody awesome machine. Super fast with changeable color backlit keyboard.)
Isn't it just beautiful? Love it, love it, love it!!!! Not sure I will even use it, just sit and stare at it!!
More Alienware options - In case you don't like my choice...
Christmas Present Buying Question?
When do you usually start buying Christmas Gifts?
iTunes Gift Cards
I like Apps, Games and Music, so these are ideal
Photography is a passion and I am always after new bits of kit, especially new lenses. Here a few bits I would like. Having said that, I know my wife prefers me to buy my own, to make sure I get what I want (I can be very specific when it comes to cameras and lenses, which makes it very difficult for anyone to buy these as gifts for me. Sorry people)
One of my Favorite Christmas Movies
I know, pretty sad, but Home Alone would be one of my favorite Christmas Movies. Most likely because it is laugh out loud funny at times, and a bit violent. And what guy out there, when he was a kid, wouldn't have loved to have been in Kevin's situation ( and come out of it the same way)

Toiletries - Got to be clean and smell nice for Chrissie!!
My very favorite aftershave. And my wife likes it too, which is good news!
Unsightly hair needs removing? Need a tidy up on the big day? Then why not this great grooming kit?
I love Australia and my wearing t-shirts with Australian designs on shows it. I keep meaning to get some, but have never got around to it. So, why not ask for some for Christmas
Not everyone's idea of a great gift, but if you just can't decide, they make a great alternative and allow the recipient to purchase what they want.
