Here is a list of things that I am a little more optimistic about receiving on Christmas morning. I’m not a materialistic person, there are just some things I would love to have.
iTunes Gift Card – $25
This is probably the most useful thing anyone could ever get me because I spend the most money on iTunes music, and iPhone apps. This is one thing that would absolutely, 100% go to use!
Lady Gaga Tickets – $59-$400
If you’ve taken a glimpse of my website in the last 6 months, it should be pretty clear that I have a new fascination, obsession, and muse. Her name is Stefani Germanotta and she’s a free bitch. Gaga is playing Radio City Music Hall in NYC on MY BIRTHDAY (January 24). I honestly can’t think of a better birthday situation. Gaga + NYC + My best friends + Radio City Music Hall + my birthday = perfect birthday soup. I woke up to make sure I could get tickets to the show and they sold out (as well as her 3 other dates in NYC) in less than a minute. I was very upset, but I am willing to drop a small fortune to be able to say I saw Gaga’s Monster Ball tour at Radio City Music Hall on my birthday. I’m hoping to get tickets for January 23rd so that I can see her, go have fun on that Saturday night, and then drive back home on Sunday, which is actually my birthday. My friend Danny who has a birthday on January 29th is going to go with me, so feel free to make his birthday amazing as well.
Nintendo Wii – $199
My roommate has a Nintendo Wii, and when I saw that Super Mario Bros. Wii came out, I actually bought the game just so I could play it on his Wii. Since this won’t make any sense once I move out, I am hoping that I get one this year. I hinted around to my Dad that I wanted one, but not sure if he figured it out. This is the Nintendo Wii’s second appearance on my Christmas list.
Parking Tickets – ~$80
In my opinion, one of the greates gifts you can give someone is freedom of stress. My life is ruined day in and day out by Morgantown parking tickets. What better way to pull an Oprah, than by paying off my parking tickets! I think I’ve got somewhere around $80 worth now.
Blu Ray Player – ~$130
Though Blu Ray will be extinct in a few years, in my and others’ opinions, I realized I am starting to get back in to movies again. I’m not sure why, but it’s exciting to have another thing to collect and be excited about. After watching a few movies in Blu Ray, I’ve realized that there is no other option for me. Blu-Ray players are very cheap this holiday season, so I am hoping I’ll be opening one on Christmas morning.
Replaced iPhone Screen – $200
I have dropped the couple of iPhones that I have owned in my lifetime HUNDREDS of times. The one time it falls gently to the ground it somehow manages to crack the screen, as you can see above. Luckily, the phone and all of its functions still work. I have AppleCare protection for it, but of course the plan covers everything EXCEPT cracked screens and water damage. What other damage can you have, really? Regardless of if I have AppleCare or not, the fee to replace the screen is $200, which is actually much cheaper than buying a brand new phone anyway.
These are some items that would be great to open on Christmas morning. However, I am a firm believer that it is the thought that counts. I love personalized anything. If you drew a pretty picture on a napkin one day at a late night diner, wrapped it up, and gave it to me, I promise I would cherish it forever. I love my friends and I love when my friends give me their works of art, or letters, or just general love.
Happy Holidays everyone!
