How I Always Get What I Want for Christmas

I don't know about you and your family, but mine invariably come around every year and ask me what I'd like for Christmas. Duh! Like there aren't a million
things for the house I'd love to get! I'm only an interior designer. On top of
that, I'm tired of getting gifts I don't like, don't need, don't want and don't

So even though I think it's a silly question to be asking me, I always oblige and give them a few suggestions. So it dawned on me that I could hand them a pre-decided list based on what I already know I like and where to find it. That would save us all time.

Then I thought that just maybe you have family members who want clues from you too. Then I began to think about what are the most common household decorating items most of my clients lack.

Since there is a very common thread that I see in most homes, or rather I don't see in most homes, I thought it might be helpful to give you a list of things I strongly recommend you put in your home - if not in every room - then at least have somewhere in your home to help you with your decorating attempts.

Here then is a nifty list you can print off for every member of your family, friends, relatives and co-workers. Heck, use it just before your birthday too.

  • This is a great idea! Thanks so much...I wish I had had a list like this years ago. It's so wonderfully organized and makes it so easy for me to just tell my family and friends where to get what I need and want. I already have some of the items...but there were things on that list that I didn't even think of!

    Thanks again,

  • I've left some blank boxes at the bottom for people to write in their own items to personalize it more.

    Thanks for your input.

    Appreciate everyone who contributes.

    Best Wishes,
