My Birthday Wishlist

It's my birthday in a few weeks and my husband has asked me to make a list of gifts that I would like to receive, as I started to put the list together I thought it would make a good blog post as it might help to give you some inspiration if you're stuck for gift ideas for yourself or a loved one.

I usually really struggle when people ask me what I'd like for my birthday or Christmas but for some reason this year there are quite a few things I would like, so here's what is on my list.

Now that we've moved to a more rural area wellies are a must so of course that means I need some Hunter wellies and the super cute cable knit boot socks to go with them.

I've been wanting to make a start on an Emma Bridgewater collection for ages so what better time to start than my birthday, Rose & Bee is my favourite print at the moment but to be honest I'd be happy with anything as it's all so pretty.

I've been seeing the light boxes everywhere recently and they look so cute, I need one in my life.

I had to have a mug on my wishlist because for some reason I'm absolutely obsessed with buying mugs, every time I go out I come back with a mug, my husband will go mad because we certainly don't need anymore but this initial mug is so beautiful it had to go on the list.

I'm desperate for a new pair of blue jeans as my current pair have holes in them and I don't mean the trendy holes in the knees I mean the embarrassing holes that appear between your legs where they rub together, please tell me I'm not the only one who gets holes in their jeans in that area?

I really need a new keyring at the moment as I've just had to throw my old one away and my keys look so boring without one. I love this one from Aspinal of London, it's a bit pricey but so pretty and would make a great gift.

I'm in love with this Joules scarf, the colours are so gorgeous and it would be perfect to wear right through until Spring.

So that's everything I'd like for my birthday, of course I don't expect to get everything on the list as some of the items are expensive but a few of them would be lovely.

Let me know what you think of my list.


  1. Great wishlist! I like the look of the lightbox I bet that would come in handy

    1. Thanks! Yes I think it would be really handy for seasonal home decor and a great accessory for blog photos xx

  2. Great wishlist, I'm getting a lightbox for my birthday this month, hope you get everything that you want.

    1. Thanks lovely! I can't wait to get my lightbox and have a play :) xx

  3. This is so funny - I've just written a blogpost almost identical to this! I've even got jeans and that exact mug on my birthday wish list. Great minds think alike! 😃
