Much in the same vein as my 2012 New Apartment Housewarming Gift Registry Extravaganza, I present to those of you who have not yet crossed my name off your list (I’m talkin’ to you Senor Kringle) my Christmas 2012 White Wonderland of a Wishlist—let everyone cheer!!!!!!!
Bespoke British Baggage: As BoingBoing put it, this “gloriously impractical” luggage from Williams British Handmade is sure to draw attention at the baggage claim turnstyle. (You know… because I’m sure people who can afford to even consider buying this stuff take care of their own bags.)
Doctor Who goodies from ThinkGeek: I mentioned last year how the nerd inside me looks forward to the annual Doctor Who Christmas special every year. Why not celebrate with a Tardis mug and Weeping Angels t-shirt!!
SodaStream Water Carbonation Machine: Ever since I was quite young I have always loved sparkling water. One of my favorite things about going to Europe is that, as opposed to in America, it’s quite ubiquitous over there. My host family in Minden even had one of these machines and I probably went through a whole CO2 cartridge just on myself.
Look, I Made a Hat: Stephen Sondheim’s follow-up to last year’s Finishing the Hat, the combination of the two offering his entire collection of lyrics as well as anecdotes for his entire body of work. Somebody puh-LEASE Sondheimize me this year!! (The video below explains it all if you aren’t familiar with Modern Family)
And FINALLY, for a bit of a laugh… if you think this list is a bit hodge-podge then check out the holiday shopping list these guys came up with (as seen on BoingBoing):
I’m pretty sure a gallery just down the street would probably sell an oil painting of circus clowns storming Normandy Beach.
Artist: Aretha Franklin / Album: This Christmas
