What a gifting Expert wants for Christmas

It’s better to give than to receive. Or so the saying goes. But I’ll admit, as a gifting expert, I spend a lot of time thinking about what to give others, and maybe not enough time thinking about the things I’d love to receive.


t So here’s a list of a few things I’m asking Santa for this Christmas (hint, hint).

1. New knives


t I love to cook. And after a recent trip to my parents’ house I realized how much of a difference good knives make for chopping, dicing and prepping.

2. New iPhone case


t My poor phone has been dropped, plunged and stepped on more times than I can even count. But somehow I’ve managed to evade the dreaded cracked screen. I’m chalking that up to always having a good case on it. I love this nautical-inspired one from Case Scenario.

3. Kitchen Aid stand mixer


t I live in New York City. I have two inches of counter space. But I don’t care anymore! I love to cook and I want a stand mixer. Even if I have to drag it out every time I need it or chop vegetables on my kitchen table, I still want it.

4. Homemade yogurt maker


t Since recently completing nutrition school, I’ve been even more focused on knowing what’s in my food and trying to make as much of it at home as possible. I read recently about the Dash (TM) homemade Greek Yogurt maker and how super easy it is to use. I’d love to be making my own and it’s a great way to save money, too!

5. Movies


t It’s cold in NYC! And that means my movie viewing increases exponentially. DVDs and iTunes gift cards would be a great way to ease my guilt about the amount I’m spending on downloads and rentals! Oh, and I’m not afraid to admit it, I love Frozen. I’ve seen it with my friends’ kids and secretly wouldn’t mind owning my own copy!

t What would you rather do? Give or receive? Share how you give back during the holidays with the hashtag #JustGotJingled!
