B & C’s 2018 Holiday Wish List


Receiving gifts as an adult is an odd experience. If there is something either of us ever realllly wants…we will often save and buy the items for ourselves. But around this time of the year, we do always like to put our holiday wish list together!

Our moms, husbands, and other family members are always asking what we want for Christmas and instead of saying, “Oh, I don’t need anything” or “Whatever you think”, we try to make it a little easier on them and offer some specific gift ideas. It’s a win-win for everyone. They have an easier time shopping and we get items we actually want and need.

Our Holiday Wish List

So let’s dive into our holiday wish list for this year!
Our holiday wish lists for 2018

Bridget’s Holiday Wish ListBridget's holiday wish list for 2018

I realized after putting together my holiday wish list that I am SO lame! When did this happen?! Well, technically I knew this for a while now, but seeing this list made it more official. I think you’ll know what I’m talking about after you see my not-so-glamorous, yet very functional, Christmas list. But to be perfectly honest, there’s no shame in my lame game. A heated blanket, an organizer for my car, and even some new pots and pans that don’t chip all sound pretty fabulous to me. #adulting

Neutral Sneakers

Love these everyday sneakers, perfect to wear with jeans or athleisure pants!

Becoming Book

I don’t have much time to read these days, but when I do, I only read non-fiction books. This one is at the top of my list!

New Pots & Pans

Our pots and pans are all hand-me-downs and have seen better days by this point. Matt and I love this set, especially because of the “green” qualities. But we’re also open to other suggestions, anyone?

Casey’s Holiday Wish ListCasey's holiday wish list for 2018

Like Bridget, I too feel like my holiday wish list is pretty lame. But I guess that’s what happens when you hit your 30’s right? My most immediate needs include items for our upcoming trip to Quebec City (we leave the day after Christmas!), so I’m trying to stock up on all of the warm things! Other than that, these are some quality items that I’ve been coveting…





Mantra Cuff Bracelet

2018 has been the hardest year of my life. But I’ve also learned that I’m one strong woman. A small reminder to trust the process and keep on moving forward would be a nice piece to wear every day.
