Inspiration, Personal

A Small Wishlist [6]

We popped up our Christmas tree this weekend, which can only mean it’s really almost Christmas! Every year I make myself a wishlist and this year is no different. Read on if you’re curious to find out what’s on my wishlist, and maybe you’ll find some inspiration for your own Christmas shopping.

I used to make wishlists quite often (just check the “wishlist” tag here on the blog). This year really was the first year I needed to think about this list. Since I started working I’ve bought a lot of the things that have been on my list for ages, so it felt a bit like starting fresh. As always there are lots of books on my list, but there’s other things too.

All things Harry Potter

After I saw the movie I immediately went and bought the hardcover version of the screenplay, so it shouldn’t surprise you there’s more Harry Potter (or rather Fantastic Beasts) to be found on my list. I loved the setting of the movie and I’m curious to find out more about this part of the Harry Potter universe.

Some of the things on my wishlist are books related to the Harry Potter universe. Pictured here are the covers of each of these books.

1. Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets: Illustrated Edition, 2. The Art of the Movie: Fantastic Beasts and where to find them, 3. The Case of Beasts, 4. Harry Potter: The Creature Vault

For the love of plants

Is it strange to put plants on a wishlist? I’m almost ashamed of buying more plants, so for the couple of lovely special ones that are on my wishlist it would be awesome to get them as a gift.

On my wishlist are three different plants, which are pictured here and two books about plants/natural history.

1. Fiddle Leaf Fig, 2. Medinilla Magnifica, 3. Wonders are Collectible, 4. Urban Jungle, 5. Calathea

Name something, it might be a hobby of mine

Sometimes I feel like I have too many hobby’s. Especially when I try to make a list of them. But I wouldn’t be able to cut some of them, in my mind they’re all part of “being creative” in whatever way I feel like. On the other hand, sometimes I feel like I’m really not creative at all. So I added some extra, creativity boosting, things on my wishlist.

The covers of "Your inner critic is a big jerk" and "1 page at a time", next to images of a GorillaPod camer stand, a light box for drawing and a lens hood

1. Your Inner Critic is a Big Jerk, 2. 1 Page at a Time,  3. Lens hood for Canon 50mm/18-55mm lenses, 4. GorillaPod for Smartphone/Compact Camera, 5. Huion Lightbox

Do you make a wishlist round Christmas time? Maybe you need to make one to share with present-hunting relatives? What’s the number one thing on your wishlist?

    Leuke wishlist! En euh, die planten, moest het voor ons niet heel onhandig zijn om die van België naar Zwitserland te transporteren, ik zou er waarschijnlijk ook op zetten hoor 🙂 Zo’n ficus zou ik bijvoorbeeld ook heel graag nog in huis halen! Dit jaar heeft vooral onze verhuis mij geïnspireerd, dus er staan verschillende decoratiespulletjes op mijn verlanglijstje (en boeken, boeken moeten altijd op zo’n lijstje…).

      Misschien kun je baby-plantjes vragen? :p En decoratiespullen zijn ook altijd leuk om te krijgen! 🙂
