Amy's Christmas Wish List 2010

(Johnathan's list can be found here.)

Once again, I’m not really in need of very much.  My list might well end up being shorter than you'd like, which may mean you consider me "difficult".  I'm not, I'm just not in need of a lot. :)


I've lost enough weight post-pregnancy that I don't fit into a lot of my old clothes.  This is usually a good thing, except that it means buying more clothing.  Mostly I need tops, L or XL (at Reitman's I'm into mostly L now).  I’m always happy to get gift cards to any CF mall, Gap, Banana Republic, or Reitman’s.  Also, black or mostly-black socks are always good too.

Things That Aren’t Needed But Might Be Nice


  • Books
    • I'm enjoying the Shopaholic series by Sophie Kinsella - I only have the first book, any of the other ones would be great (or any other Sophie Kinsella, I like her writing so far)
    • I didn't get much gardening done this year (read: none).  But, gardening books are useful for when I can get Lily to help me plant!  I'm thinking vegetable gardening, I'm also very interested in organic gardening in particular.  Here are some suggestions:
      • "Rodale's Illustrated Encyclopedia of Organic Gardening" by Pauline Pears (editor)
      • "Roses Love Garlic: Companion Planting and Other Secrets of Flowers" by Louise Riotte (I already have her "Carrots Love Tomatoes" book)
    • I'm also into fun homemaking books like:
      • "Forgotten Household Arts and Crafts" by John Seymour
    • I'm on a crafting binge lately, mostly sewing and crocheting.  Books on quick sewing/crocheting projects for kids (clothing, etc.) would be great! 
    • I don't have a lot of time to read right now, but I'm always up for interesting books.  I love history, biographies of historical figures, social sciencey stuff, and so on.
    • I'm doing more cooking nowadays, and I'm always looking for good ideas.  Here are some books I'm looking at:
      • "Double Delicious" by Jessica Seinfeld (I've got her "Deceptively Delicious" already)
      • We love Jamie Oliver in our house, so "Jamie's Food Revolution: Rediscover How to Cook Simple, Delicious, Affordable Meals" or "Jamie's America: Easy Twists On Great American Classics" would be lovely
    • In general, I've got a wish list on Amazon.ca, click here to see it 
  • Games
    • Wii Sports Resort
  • Non-Computer/Game System Games
    • Flux
    • Apples to Apples
  • Experiences are always great, whether it be something I can do on my own, with my darling husband, or with my family.
  • Magazine subscriptions - Martha Stewart Living, Craft Magazine, Canadian House and Home (I think that's the name) or Style at Home (also Canadian)
  • An iPod Touch arm band, so I can strap my iPod to my arm.  You'll probably have luck at The Source or Best Buy, that kind of place.
  • Canning supplies - you can find them at Canadian Tire.  They carry a Bernardin canning rack, and also a canning set.
  • A bannister for my basement stairs
  • A stainless steel rack for my small and large roasting pans (measurements: 13x9 oval, 15x10.5 oval, 16x12 rectangle).  If nothing else, you might have some luck at Golda's Kitchen in Mississauga (in fact, I found some on their website!), or Crate and Barrel (now at Square One!)


Things That I Definitely Don't Need

  • Winter coat, boots, hats, scarves, mittens, etc.
  • Jammie pants
  • Underwear
  • Bath stuff
