It's December which means the holiday season is upon us! Luckily the majority of my shopping is already done - from the seat of my chair, I might add. For a hater of shopping malls and such, online shopping is a GODSEND. While my shopping is mostly done, I know other (ahem, mom) are thinking about what they will get me, so I put together a little wishlist. I always feel like posting a wishlist makes me seem a little bit materialistic but I also know that my mom needs ideas. Plus, perhaps those of you are trying to come up with wishlists of your own will gain some inspiration from what made my list!
Here's is a selection of things I'd be happy to see under the tree this year.
Item #1 - Cast Iron Skillet - I often come across recipes that require an over-proof pans and I do not own one that I really like. I love my Lodge-brand dutch oven so imagine I'd love their cast iron skillet as well. I also like that they have that little rubber sleeve (which must be purchased separately) that you can fit on the handle! Sure a potholder would work, too, but it's nice that it stays put!
Item #2 - Polar Heart Rate Monitor - I have a Garmin that I always wear while running but I would love to have a heart rate monitor to wear when I am strength training or doing yoga as I'm curious about what my heart rate is doing and would love to see an estimation of calories burned.
Item #3 - Medal Rack - I have ran a lot of races over the years but all the medals I have accumulated reside in a bin under my bed. It would be nice to display them in my bedroom. Plus I love the quote on this particular medal rack.
Item #4 - Under Armour Running Tights - Colder weather is upon us which means it's running tights weather. I have one pair of running tights but could always use more as I can layer and also use them when cross country skiing. I asked Facebook friends for recommendations in November and many recommended Under Armour. I recently tried these on at REI and really liked how they fit!
Item #5 - Reflective Vest - This is the dorkiest thing on my wishlist but since it is dark at night when I am running and will be for quite some time, I should be wearing a reflective vest! I do use a headlamp which helps but a vest would make me even more noticeable to others.
Item #6 - A pretty scarf - I heart this scarf so much. I tend to be a pretty boring dresser when it comes to colors but this would provide a fun pop of color!
Item #7 - Some pretty bowls - So clearly I'm a little obsessed with mustard as I would also love a set of these bowls!
I am not at all surprised that 4 items are fitness-related! And of course while it would be nice to receive any of these things, I would still have a wonderful Christmas if no presents were received.
What is on your holiday wishlist this year?
