The things I’ve been eyeing and have my eye on for Christmas 2021
Christmas wish lists are something my husband and I decided to do for each other years ago. As romantic as surprise gifts are, it’s also nice to actually get it right and get each other exactly what they want. We try and be a bit sneaky in how we box and wrap them so there’s still some guest work trying to remember what we put on the list and which one it is. Here’s what’s on my Christmas wish list 2021 in case you’re stuck for Christmas wish list ideas.

What’s on my Christmas wish list 2021
Chanel hair accessories
I’m not sure if I prefer the Chanel hair scarf tie scrunchie or crystal hair clip. The black scarf will show less marks less than the white version and can also be used as a twilly or neck scarf as the scrunchie and twilly are 2 pieces. I added the Chanel crystal hair clips because I love sparkle.
I added both so that there’s some element of surprise. As I know I’d wear both a lot as I either have my hair tied up or in a side part with one side tucked behind my ear.
Christmas wish list | Chanel sunglasses
Yes, there’s a bit of a Chanel theme here. Christmas is a time for us when we spoil each other and get things each other have been wanting not needing. We used to do stockings full of socks and underwear etc just so we could have Santa visit but now we’ve pivoted more towards a set budget and creating a Christmas wish list of things that add up to that total.
These are the cat eye Chanel sunglasses I added to my Christmas wish list from their new collection. Chanels website has a virtual try on feature on their site that’s actually pretty accurate so that you see what they look like on if you can’t get to a store. I wear sunglasses everyday as we get sunshine pretty much 365 days a year here in Vegas so I like to have a few pairs. As much as I love skinnier sunglasses arms my sunglasses are getting bigger and bigger to give me more sun protection as I’ve been getting more fine lines around my eyes. I like statement sunglasses as they can completely change the look of an outfit and these are definitely a statement pair with the Chanel logo in a pretty pearl on the side.
Cartier card holder
I’d never wanted a card holder before this Summers vacation. The hotel gave us leather card holders for our room keys and I’ve been using it for my ID and primary credit card ever since. It’s easier to move from bag to bag than my entire wallet. Especially with evening bags that my wallet doesn’t fit in. The Cartier card holder is a bit more elegant though! I know this one isn’t a surprise since I went into the store to choose it and have it embossed already. I love the whole in store experience when it comes to luxury brands. Their customer service is second to none.
Christmas wish list fragrances | Cartier Perfume
Because we travel so much travel size perfumes are so much more convenient than full size. Especially if I’m doing carryon only. This Cartier perfume set looks so elegant and has 15 of their fragrances. It’s such a great way to try their collection as I haven’t worn any of their fragrances before.
Crystal Starbucks To Go Mug
My cat broke my sparkly Starbucks ceramic tumbler this year jumping into our kitchen cabinet so I’ve added it to my Christmas wish list as it was my favorite. I chose this one as it takes both hot and cold drinks. A lot of the bedazzled to go tumblers would only hold cold drinks and I’m a hot black Americano girl. I also like being able to support small businesses which is why I use Etsy quite a lot.
Because I own the custom lipstick lab in Las Vegas I had to add this lip trinket tray as it’ll be perfect for putting business cards on at the lab. It’s also on sale now if you’re looking for gifts under $10 for stocking stuffers, etc.
I’ve been wanting one of these for ages. It’s one of those little luxuries you don’t normally buy for yourself. I added 3 variations to my Christmas wish list 2021 as I knew my husband would know better than I do which would fit our bath the best. Some of these bath caddies are on sale with up to 69% off. As much as I love luxury brands I also love a sale and finding the best prices.
A new sports bra always makes me feel more motivated to work out. Especially in Winter when I just want to hibernate and stay warm. Victoria’s Secrets and Lorna Jane are my go to brands as they offer maximum support sports bras that don’t look matronly. I prefer the ones that zip up at the front so that they’re easy to get on and so that also nothing digs into your back sitting on lying on the workout bench.
Invisible nude underwear
Victoria’s Secret still makes the best nude v-string underwear as far as I’m concerned. As much as I love how lacy styles look, these are practical for no VPL and not showing under white jeans or tight dresses. They do come in other colors and lace as well but the nude and black are my everyday essential. Not many thongs have such a tiny back or as soft which is what I love about them.
