What’s on Your Holiday Wish List?

I know, I know, it’s not even Halloween. I’m one of those people that takes mental notes of gift ideas throughout the year, and then once fall hits I’m like a little kid waiting for the holidays to roll around. I’m also one of those people that will watch the movie Elf in the middle of summer and thoroughly enjoy it. I can’t help it!

I have some exciting things planned for the blog this holiday season, including some great giveaways (yay!). Since it’s always nice to get something you want or need, I wanted to get a gauge of the things are highest on your wish list this year. The consensus will help me narrow down my ever-growing list of ideas :)

So, what do you want Santa to leave under the tree for you??

    I would LOVE an immersion blender, a digital scale, and my very own stand mixer for the holidays! And peace on Earth :)

    A brand new set of corningware, a kindle, cuisinart frozen yogurt/ice cream maker. And of course a new car wouldn’t hurt.

    Hmmm… for Christmas I’d like a new fridge, a new stove and a new dishwasher. But since that’s a little greedy maybe a new indoor grill, new glass measuring cups and maybe a pony. That’s a little over the top too… I could use new cookie trays ’cause my old ones are disgusting and new spices, mine are a gazillion years old. That’s kind of boring so how about some pretty new dishes for the Christmas table. I’d only use them once a year so they would be like brand new every year. Christmas is hard, all those wishes on one day, maybe I’d wish it could be Christmas more often. Yah, that’s it. Definitely!

    An Epiphanie camera bag, and a KitchenAid stand mixer. Dragging out the hand mixer several times a week to bake is getting old :)

    I love how almost everyone who has responded has named kitchen items! They really are the best presents in my opinion!

    I’m happy because I start a list a month ago (and my birthday is in november so…)
    I would like a KitchenAid, a Clarisonic, some UGG brown and short, Guerlain perfum, a waffle iron, a new freezer because I have a too big ice cream maker wich don’t go in my freezer and a lazer hair removal (sorry if it’s strange words but I use a translator for some words because I’m French and it’s hard to fing waffle iron ;)

    My wish list… some cast iron cookware that is pre-seasoned… some sturdy large cookie sheets (the ones they sometimes used to call jelly roll pans when I was a child)… some good large muffin pans… some decent glasses of various sizes that are cobalt blue … a gift card for books to Amazon.com… some Bare Minerals Eye Shadows (they look delicious)… some new Laura Mercier Stick Gloss or Lip Glace… a good set of pyrex mixing bowls or the kind you can pour from would be even better… a good pair of pumps (or three) from Nine West (I have some beautiful suede ones picked out)… an agent and publisher for a book about domestic violence that I have written over the last 8 years … and energy to get through the holidays and enjoy them with my family (enough to do things the way I always wanted to… not perfect… but better)… especially the energy to make some of the recipes I have collected from this web site like the snickerdoodle blondies that Mary Beth Whalen recommended the other day !

    I would like a new salad shooter. I have enjoying using that for years and somehow lost the pusher part last week while getting ready for company. Maybe I will still find it. Also would like a good leather purse and a nice warm fleece bathrobe.

    I would love the pasta making attachments for my Kitchen Aid. That isn’t going to happen, but I would like to receive a gift card to Sur La Table. I’ll be doing alot of baking this year so cookbooks are always welcome. Last year my boss gave cookie trays to his customers. I baked over 1500 cookies. New recipes are needed.

    I want a nice shiny freezer for all of my goods! I would also like a new set of measuring cups and spoons. I so need them! The numbers are coming off of them and sometimes I mix them up! That can’t be good! Also new baking sheets, mine are getting ugly and Silipat to go with them! A gift certificate for Williams and Sonoma or Sur La Table or Cost Plus or even Trader Joe’s! Hmmm, now I’m thinking of shopping!!

    I would love an IPad so I could bring your recipes to the kitchen counter! All of your (Brown-Eyed Baker) are on my computer in the Den so when I am following a recipe ( of yours) I leave it up in my computer, then go to the kitchen and come back to the den to look at the recipe. Sometimes I do print it out but I don’t like to do that as it wasteful with paper.

    I would really love it if my husband could somehow miraculously come home from his deployment in time for Christmas. I’m not holding my breathe on that one though… Barring that, I would really like a new blender – mine just doesn’t seem to be cutting the mustard lately!

    Every time I make a new recipe my list gets a little longer, but at the top right now is a Kitchen Aid mixer and a food processor. Making buttercream frosting with a hand mixer is getting a little tiresome.

    A Breville Sous Chef from Sur La Table! We’ll save that gift for my husband, though! Good containers for giving away sweets at Christmas is something I’m always short on.

    Well, since you asked:

    I really want gift cards….for Kohl’s, Target and/or Walmart. I need clothes and house stuff! I’d like my own Sony Cybershot (I’m currently borrowing someone’s Cybershot) and an Iphone. I’d also like the money to have my house cleaned by a maid. See, I’m not demanding at all. ;)

    I would love a KA stand mixer. Our hand mixer is just a cheap one from wal-mart, and while it’s good for mashed potatoes and cake mixes, my go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe is so thick it requires hands to mix it when not made in a stand mixer. My mom has one as old as I am practically, and it’s heaven to be able to whip up a double batch (with 9 cups of flour!) in five minutes tops. I might just have to steal hers!

    Some nice cookware..I’m sorta limited..definitely new Knife set..Ive had mine for 9 years and theyve definitely kicked the bucket. New cookie sheets from Williams Sonoma, the goldware ones..iphone would certainly be nice too..
    But any pastry or bread making gadgets are always a plus.

    Oh there are so many things. I would love a Bodum coffee press, A tart pan, a new knife set (we are still wearing down the odd knifes we received as hand me downs), a carving board for meat, Oh and on the top of the list a spinning cake stand for decorating. i keep eyeing the one at the store. Happy early holidays :)

    You shouldn’t have asked….. my stove,fridge,washer and dryer seriously need to be replaced after 25 years of hard service! I would like an ice-cream maker, a stand mixer (never had one, always use hand mixer), a kitchen scale, kitchen shears, some cookbooks and some small beauty items. Seriously though, I want and need some decent health, and some financial windfall .

    Honestly… I just want to be home to be home for the holidays… Seeing as that is an impossibility, because I live and work in a bakery in Germany, I won’t be getting my wish list this year.

    However, if we’re speaking solely on food/baking items… well that list could be quite extensive :)
    Kitchen Aid, Immersion blender, Digital scale, tip set… and it goes on!

    Can I say Happy Holiday so soon?!
