The Ultimate Blogger Holiday Wish List // 2nd Annual Edition

Bubby and Bean's Ultimate Blogger Holiday Wish List

Last year, I asked some blog pals and favorite bloggers to each share one item that they'd especially love to find under the tree.  I then compiled their picks into one big blogger holiday wish list that I shared here at Bubby & Bean.  It was a lot of fun to put together (and gave me some great gift ideas!), so I decided to do it again this year.  Some of these bloggers run lifestyle blogs, some fashion blogs, some design blogs.  Some I've had the pleasure of hanging out with in person this year, and some are internet friends.  But they've each got a fantastic sense of style, and the goodies they've chosen would all make amazing gifts for those of you who are holiday shopping (as well as excellent ideas for your own wish lists!).


Sincerely, Kinsey
"Here's my choice:  The Mila French Vintage Leather Satchel from bOmode!" 
Available at bOmode, $69
Sincerely, Kinsey


A Beautiful Mess
"We are both really into rugs right now (we are in house decorating mode).  So our item is the Snow Peak Rug."
Available at West Elm, $129-$849
A Beautiful Mess


Selective Potential
"I'm looking for anything cozy to keep me warm this winter in Michigan. This pair of mittens would be perfect for a day of ice-skating at Rosa Parks Circle!"
Available at ModCloth, $17.99
Selective Potential


Pugly Pixel
"Leif Shop's No. 102 Bracelet is on the top of my wish list.  I'm drawn to the combination of odd shapes and contrasting colors.  It's quite a beauty!" 
Available at Leif Shop, $28
Pugly Pixel


Delightfully Tacky
"We just moved into a new place, and it has a lot more wall space than our last place, so I've been compiling a wish list of art to put on the walls!  I absolutely love this pretty, simple print!  I imagine it going perfectly, framed along with the other prints I have." 
Available at Beauchamping, $42
Delightfully Tacky


The Curious Pug
"I wish Santa would bring me an Ardium Smartphone Wallet.  I don't even have a smartphone but I would totally buy one just for this adorable wallet!  I can't stop looking at it." 
Available at Mochithings, $37.95
The Curious Pug


Little Chief Honeybee
"I'm head over heels in love with pin-up style dresses and novelty print items. The two together?  Heaven!  I'd love to build a collection of these 50's era styles with the modern twists!  I've had my heart set on this dress (and so many others!)." 
Available at Unique Vintage, $136

Girl & Closet
"I'm currently in the process of re-styling our home.  And these round pin-tuck pillows from Urban Outfitters couldn't be more perfect.  I love their fun and retro vibe and they come in a ton of colors too!  They're definitely on my Christmas list!" 
Available at Urban Outfitters, $34
Girl & Closet


Little Tree Vintage
"I have been coveting this camera for as long as I can remember, and I keep dreaming about how beautiful the pictures would turn out. I love cameras, so I am pretty sure I need to switch it up every few years; this one is my ultimate Christmas present." 
Available at Amazon, $3,500
Little Tree Vintage


Susannah Bean
"The item at the top of my wishlist is a Keurig!  I love flavored coffee, but my boyfriend doesn't.  This way we could each have what we want!" 
Available at Target, $179.99
Susannah Bean


Orchid Grey
"I'm a sucker for a certain style of vintage handbag, but they're often too small to accommodate my camera. I love the classic styling and practicality of this camera bag from ONA.  The roomy size means I wouldn't have to carry a purse and an ugly grocery tote for my camera when I'm out and about!"
Available at ONA, $319
Orchid Grey


Our City Lights
"I've been a  Disneyland fan for years, and I appreciate all things retro Disney, so this phone case was something that would be perfect.  A pink vintage Disneyland ticket?  I never really thought phone cases represented a person, but if they did, this would be it!"
Available at Gold Printer, $14
Our City Lights


Tales of a Tumbleweed
Beca: "I love tote bags and this one is moody and dark, just like winter nights in Tennessee.  Perfect for a trip to the farmers market, or the coffee shop.  It's extra large too, and for me, the bigger the bag the better!"
Maggie: "I like suspended plants because they make you feel like your sitting under a canopy of trees, even though you're staying warm during cold winter days in your own house!" 
Available at Gift Shop Brooklyn, $32, and TW Pottery, $65

Tales of a Tumbleweed


Dot Girl Blog
"My husband and I took a trip to Turkey in September and came back with some amazing loose leaf teas and no way to prepare them.  For that reason I'd love to receive a Tea For One Brewing Set from Poketo, but times two (red for me and white for him)." 
Available at Poketo, $29
Dot Girl Blog


Bubby and Bean
It's been at least 15 years since I've owned a watch, and I'm thinking it's time (get it? get it?) that I put one back on my wrist.  This La Mer Triple Wrap Watch in black would be perfect - it's simple, looks like a bracelet, and for a watch, is quite affordable.
Available at Target, $39.99


I know I've said this before (several times), but over the past couple of years I've discovered that the blogging community can be a pretty awesome place.  I was never a blog reader before I started Bubby & Bean, so it's been a surprisingly wonderful experience to continuously come across rad new blogs and to get to connect with other bloggers.  If you're ever in need of inspiration and you're not already a reader of the blogs that participated in this wish list roundup, I highly recommend checking them out.  Each one has something terrific to offer, and they're all among my favorites on the web. 

What's the #1 item on your holiday wish list this year?

  1. This is a great idea, and there's so much good stuff here. Those modcloth mittens are adorable and I've also had that Canon on my wishlist forever! I also haven't worn a watch in several years, which is fine most of the time because I always have my phone. But when I don't, I drive my bf crazy asking what time it is every half hour, so maybe I should just get a watch too. :)
