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??

    Besides finding a job, I would love to get a Vitamix Mixer, the Entire Pampered Chef Catalog of products, and a Silhouette CAMEO™…hmm Santa may have to wait until next year to get some of this!

    One of those fancy panini presses and a strong immersion blender, both would get a lot of use at my house!

    Every year people ask me what I want and most often it’s truly nothing. What I really would love is to see smiles on everyones faces, hearing people laugh, not seeing people get mad and crazy when they are Christmas shopping, seeing children open up a Christmas Gift for the first time, enjoying seeing the grandparents sparkle in their eyes when they see their family come together. I may sound like a big sap, but thats because I am. I am most happy when my family is happy and there is not a gift in the world that I would ask for more, but more peace, love, and happiness!!!!!!!!!

    A Canon Rebel please……pretty please??


  5. Ems on October 20, 2011 at 12:02 pm

    I’d like to second the immersion blender!


  6. Lauren on October 20, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    a bundt pan, cake decorating kit, and a serger! :)


  7. Alice on October 20, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    Dream list is an espresso machine, a really good waffle-maker, knife sharpener and a really good DSLR camera…

    Some of my favorite kitchen gifts to give are an immersion blender, the beater blade for KitchenAid mixers and a kitchen scale.


  8. Dede on October 20, 2011 at 12:16 pm

    I want absolutely NOTHING! We were giventhe greatest gift back in March when our son was in a horrifce car accident (ejected) and suffered Traumatic Brain Injury. He was on life support and was put in a coma. Needless to say, we did a lot of praying and we are so very blessed to say that our son is better than ever just 8 months after his accident. And yes, he now wears a seatbelt :- )
    So I already received my gift.


  9. Kayle B on October 20, 2011 at 12:19 pm

    I would LOVE a KitchenAid Stand Mixer! Also-any baking essentials are always awesome :)


  10. colleen on October 20, 2011 at 12:25 pm

    I’m just like you–I make my Christmas list year-round! So everyone says I’m easy to buy for (I just wish they would take the hint, some are frustrating to buy for).

    My wants (besides spending the holiday with my family–tickets booked!) are a mini cheesecake pan and a biscotti pan. I’d also like two more matching cookie sheets (the big, jelly roll style ones) and Silpats to go with them.


  11. Kerri on October 20, 2011 at 1:03 pm

    iPad and All-Clad….LOVE!


  12. Amanda on October 20, 2011 at 1:30 pm

    I want a new food processor that has a dough blade option, an immersion blender, a tart pan, a springform pan, and a good knife set! Seriously, almost my entire wishlist on Amazon is cooking appliances or cookbooks!


  13. Cait on October 20, 2011 at 1:46 pm

    I would love a new KitcheAid mixer, I inherited mine from my Gram and its been well loved. New Stainless cookware, and a Food Processor….and well a brand new kitchen with and island (pretty sure that is asking too much!


  14. Danielle Beinke on October 20, 2011 at 2:17 pm

    My husband and I are moving into our very first house 2 weeks before Christmas!! Needless to say, there are many things I’d love to have. But, what I really want for the kitchen, is one of those Keurig coffee makers. Also, a gas grill so we can do some outdoor cooking!


  15. Elizabeth on October 20, 2011 at 2:37 pm

    An IPad is really what I want…failing that, the Kitchenaid immersion blender and/or Wusthof vegetable knife. Think Santa can come through?


  16. sherri lynn @ life of a wife on October 20, 2011 at 2:40 pm

    A Le Creuset dutch oven, an espresso maker, a quality wooden cutting board, an ice cream maker, should I keep going?? :)


  17. charm on October 20, 2011 at 2:45 pm

    A new elliptical, to work off all those holiday calories I can already see barrelling straight to my hips and thighs. Given the way I cook, bake and EAT, it counts as a kitchen appliance!
    A genie/elf/gnome/fairy to clear up the clutter in my kitchen so I can enjoy cooking rather than having to move stuff from place to place every time I want to make something.

    Oh, and Paco, the Pool Boy. If it helps, tell Santa I’ve been especially naughty this year….


  18. Tara Pfeiffer on October 20, 2011 at 2:54 pm

    Ahhh! Where do I begin? I have had 3 kids in less than 4 years…so with all those size changes, I need new clothes. A large, heavy dutch oven. A vitamix. And a nice mandoline slicer. Cherry on top would be a handyman for a day to knock some things off of the to-do list!


  19. Kari on October 20, 2011 at 2:55 pm

    I would love new cookware. My pots and pans are all old, mix-and-match, hodgepodge pieces.


  20. Joan on October 20, 2011 at 2:59 pm

    I just splurged on a large Lodge cast iron pan and Lodge dutch oven. Now I am looking for a non stick mini loaf pan. I have spent way to much money on the disposable mini loaf pans over the years.

    Baking supplies…like good quality chocolates. Oh and I LOVE cupcake wrappers and sprinkles!!!!


  21. ashley on October 20, 2011 at 3:01 pm

    i would like the kitchen aid mixer attachement with the scraper attached :)


  22. Veronica Miller on October 20, 2011 at 3:39 pm

    I’m dying for a Kitchenaid stand mixer and I bet that would be the ultimate item on many wishlists, though it is so expensive that I can’t expect it could be on your giveaway. So on the smaller scale, I’d l ike a digital scale, the new Cook’s Illustrated cookbook, and random things like a nice whisk, cookie scoop, and a silpat mat.


  23. Veronica Miller on October 20, 2011 at 3:39 pm

    And a cast iron skillet! I think that tops my list, just under the kitchenaid stand mixer.


  24. Jess on October 20, 2011 at 3:48 pm

    I really really want an immersion blender. And a nice heavy Dutch oven. And a tart pan with removable bottom. And a set of ramekins. And a cast iron skillet. Oh, and a pizza stone since I managed to drop and shatter mine! Geez…greedy much??


  25. Rachel on October 20, 2011 at 4:39 pm

    A shiny new Kitchen Aid stand mixer. Any color!!


  26. Renee on October 20, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    A new Bosch mixer and a Wonder Mill wheat grinder………ok don’t laugh but a composting toilet. We are into survival / off grid gear.


  27. Jenette Marie on October 20, 2011 at 6:25 pm

    ♪♫ Santa baaaby slip a La Creuset round French Oven under the tree… for me! ♪♫


  28. Stefanie on October 20, 2011 at 6:33 pm

    A Kitchen Aid mixer would be great. And some gift cards so I can buy new clothes. A king-size bed, toys for my pups, an iPad. Gosh, there’s just so much stuff! And I love the movie Elf. Great watch for any time of year!


  29. Mandi on October 20, 2011 at 6:36 pm

    A kitchen aide mixer, and new cookware set!


  30. Ashley @ Wishes and Dishes on October 20, 2011 at 7:16 pm

    I think about Christmas all year long, as well!! My husband says I’m like a little kid :) Oh well, there are worse things in life to be called.


  31. Marcee .... ILLINOIS on October 20, 2011 at 7:33 pm

    Something cute, sweet AND forever ….. a new puppy!

    Actually, a pooch (any) to rescue from CCR. Older doggies are so great to adopt. They need second chances.

    There are so many pups that need (our) good care, healthy food, love and most definitely …. a forever home.

    Hey Santa …… ohhhh Santa ….. you listening?


  32. Jen @ Chocotuile on October 20, 2011 at 7:55 pm

    I have officially fallen in love with my mini food processor:

    But now she needs a big sister to go along with her! I’m crossing my fingers for a great Black Friday sale on the 12 or 14 cup Cuisinart food processor!

    And as always, dreaming of a sparkly pale pink KitchenAid!


  33. Brooke on October 20, 2011 at 7:57 pm

    I am expecting my first baby 5 days after christmas, so my wish list is just full of baby items :)


  34. Melissa on October 20, 2011 at 8:40 pm

    I too keep a running list of things I’d like to have but don’t want to buy for myself. Thus far, I’m hoping for a digital scale, immersion blender, ice cream maker, and several of the many cooking/baking books on my list.


  35. Lisa S on October 20, 2011 at 8:41 pm

    Do I have to pick one thing? SO difficult.
    I do want the touch Delta kitchen faucet. My brother has it and I am very jealous in a nice way.
    If it wasnt something to do with the kitchen I will be very superficial and say I want a new cozy pair of Uggs :)


  36. Jen M O on October 20, 2011 at 8:42 pm

    I think Santa should be able to provide time since it goes by so fast. If not, then sleep?


  37. Laura on October 20, 2011 at 8:48 pm

    Is a batch of your cookies and/or bars out of the question? = ) New cookware is always nice, but I know those are $$$. Good luck on your decision!


  38. Jamie on October 20, 2011 at 9:03 pm

    Kitchen Aid 600 professional series mixer
    Ice Cream Maker
    Spring Form pans for cheesecake
    Blow Torch for Creme Brule….

    Just have to win the lottery >.< hehe


  39. Ann on October 20, 2011 at 9:26 pm

    This is SO nice of you! I have to agree with the first comment! A good immersion blender and a kitchen scale are perfect!

    My wish list for hubby is a DSLR!


  40. Sierra on October 20, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    an ice cream attachment for my kitchenaid, lots and lots of GOOD baking cookbooks, and a transfer with my husbands job so we can have a better life together (though if i got that last one, i could afford the other things!) :)


  41. Jennifer on October 20, 2011 at 10:13 pm

    The poster calendar from Linnea. I had one this year and loved changing the posters out of the frame each month. I hung the frame in a prominent place over our kitchen/bar area.

    Here’s the link for this year’s calendar:



  42. Kelly on October 21, 2011 at 4:12 am

    I would LOVE a good camera so I can take great pictures for my foodblog (my current (old) camera is a big frustration). I would LOVELOVE a KitchenAid stand mixer: often I just skip recipes I would love to make because I don’t have a good mixer… big shame, isn’t it? More baking tools and equipment are always on my wish list!


  43. christyd on October 21, 2011 at 8:44 am

    William’s Sonoma 30 piece all-clad with copper pots/pan set!


  44. Kelly on October 21, 2011 at 9:02 am

    In my perfect world, Santa would leave a kitchenaid mixer, cuisinart food processor, le creuset dutch oven, all clad pots and pans, anthropologie apron, kindle (or kobo), ipad and many many books and clothes :)


  45. Nicola on October 21, 2011 at 12:07 pm

    For Christmas/Birthday present I would love boots, Le Creuset Dutch oven and a Romantic trip to somewhere tropical with my hubby!


  46. Anna on October 21, 2011 at 12:37 pm

    KitchenAid standing mixer is the no1 on my list. But anything for baking will be great! :)


  47. Barb on October 21, 2011 at 1:40 pm

    Counterspace! I need room in my tiny kitchen to work!


  48. Jamie on October 21, 2011 at 1:49 pm

    I am right with you. In fact I have already sent my Christmas wish list to my husband and made my kids write theirs. I would really like a doughnut pan, and I always love recieving cookbooks as well.


  49. Dana on October 21, 2011 at 2:12 pm

    Here is my list, Le Creuset Dutch oven, immersion blender, Kitchenaid attachment for the blending scrapping, various kitchenaid attachments (pasta, etc), various fun kitchen tools….can never have enough! William Sonoma gift certificates are always on the top of my list!


  50. Annie on October 21, 2011 at 9:13 pm

    I would really LOVE an iPad, an SLR camera, and a KopyKake. Not too much right? :-)
