Christmas 2010 Wish List

Image by Suryakami from DeviantArt

I’ve always made wish lists every year and I share it with my family and friends (especially my brother) so he knows what gift to get me. I find wish lists very helpful so I rely on them in gift giving especially for guys. :P

But you know what’s strange, though? Every birthday and Christmas, I hardly get book presents. I know, right? I make lists, but people often get other items from my list. Maybe because I know that I will eventually get the book I want? Or maybe they hardly go to bookstores, or at least, don’t go as much as I do? Or, like I told Jason in the Filipino Friday he hosted last week, maybe it’s their subtle way of telling me to pull my nose out of a book every once in a while?

But anyway I can’t let the first Christmas of my book blog without posting a Christmas wish list. Okay, maybe I can…but it’s fun to make wish lists in hopes of a random generous stranger (or friend!) getting me something from the list. Eventually I will probably get most of these on my own, but I would be forever thankful if I get any of these from friends. :P


  • Dry seal for label for my books – I’ve been wishing for this for two years I think? A simple “Tina” or “Tinamats” on the seal would do, and some stars on the design would be nice. :P If you need details, more on Blooey’s blog. (And if I still don’t get this as a gift up until my birthday next year, I will get this on my own already…there is still hope!)
  • m-Edge e-luminator Kindle book light – because I need a book light that is easier to slip inside my Kindle case.


Ebooks or actual print books – I’m not picky. :P Remember, Kindle Ebook Gifting is possible now. :P

  • Anything with sunflowers and/or stars
  • A new laptop bag (must fit a Lenovo Thinkpad T400)
  • Azta Salon gift certificates*
  • Shopping money – by shopping, I mean non-books: clothes, shoes, make-up, etc.
  • Pens from Muji
  • Those NatGeo shirts from Regatta (I’m a Medium!)
  • Little Miss Writer Shirt — pretty.
  • New sunglasses

If you have a wish list too, share them in the comment section! Who knows, maybe some generous person will bless you with something. :)

* I know I mentioned GCs can be impersonal but I think it’s not when the person actually requested it. :P Hence the presence of gift certificate on the wish list. :)

7 Thoughts on “Christmas 2010 Wish List

  1. I like coming up with wishlists to make it easier for friends and relatives to pick out gifts for me. Actually for my family, what usually happens is we just let each other pay for something when we’re all out together. Like when we’re in a bookstore, my mom will let me pick out books and she’ll pay for them.

    I should come up with an Amazon or Book Depository wishlist so people can buy directly from those sources. :)

  2. Hey Tina. :) My sister actually gave me that dry seal thingie for my books last Christmas. There I was, wondering what this small but heavy package was… it’s pretty cool indeed.

  3. Hiya Tina!! :)

    I love making wishlists too — i made a wishlist for my Secret Santa at the office. Hopefully my colleagues would get to read it too =)

  4. Argh, why haven’t I posted my wishlist yet? I’ll link it here after I finish.
    My list might be long though. And to all the generous people in the blogosphere, my inbox is always open for books and ebooks. :D

  5. I don’t think anyone would be able to give you TRESE 4 this Christmas :)

    Also, I used to love making lists. Until I realized that I was just making myself hope for something that I will never get.

    Why do I say this? Because I always put “a day of peace” in my wish list every year. Unless I’ve been getting that through the Pacquiao match days. Haha.

  6. Great wishlist! Advance merry x-mas Tina! BTW, I like the new header. ^_^
