My Christmas Wishlist 2017

Gerelateerde afbeelding

Hi Munchworms!

As I said in my Waiting on Wednesday-post, I had the idea of creating my very own Christmas wish list. Why not share it with you guys?

Some of these I even sent to some friends and family because they didn’t know what to get me, haha.

Tip: If you still want to get surprised, just send them a list of stuff so they can still pick something themselves without you knowing already exactly what it is.

Baking and cooking

Munches, people, munches! I love baking, my boyfriend loves cooking and sometimes we discover that we are missing some things that would come in super-handy at times!

Patisse Cupcake bewaardoos I love baking cupcakes but it isn’t always fun to get my baking miracles to work. With a box like this, it would be a whole lot easier!
Not to mention safer, since I wouldn’t have to worry about messing them up while driving my car… It hurts every time I arrive at work, check my cupcakes and see the frosting completely ruined!

Oven Grid Extendable 39-60 cm

Another baking item is this oven grid. We have a small microwave / oven in one kind of thing, which doesn’t really allow me to put a lot of trays in at once. On the contrary. One tray of cupcakes: oven is full.

With this grid, I’d at least be able to double my baking speed, yay!

Ramekins! I’ve always wanted to eat some kind of meat pie really, but if we don’t have the right equipment to make those… Well, that’s not really going to happen, is it?!

I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I’m getting my hands on a couple of these, ha!

Pretty sure I could make some fun desserts with these as well…


I’ve only recently started to focus a bit more on my Instagram / Bookstagram. I always liked taking pictures but I simply didn’t have the stuff to do it.

Now I have! I’ve been trying out to find some things and create a theme – which is a huge first step for me. So, my new goal? Try and keep it up! Oh, and maybe find some things with which I can create my next theme…

Some backdrops like these, credit to minibackdrops, would definitely help in that regard!

I also really like Bookstagram-pictures that have flowers in them. Any kind really! Since I’m not really a flowery person – as in, I’d never buy myself flowers – I think I could use some fake flowers for that as well? Although I guess I’m pretty picky with those since I don’t want them to actually look fake, haha.
Other things that I’d also love to have to use in my pictures are crowns, tiaras, daggers and seasonal accessories like butterflies! There are so many gorgeous pictures out there with things like that and I honestly wouldn’t mind having some crowns and daggers to decorate my bookshelves with either…

Bullet journal droolings

Afbeeldingsresultaat voor bookish stickersI tried to start my own bullet journal around April 2017 but didn’t like what I was doing. Also, I just didn’t have any planning passion in me at that point.
By starting my blog in June, that has changed drastically! I can’t think of anything better than being able to plan everything perfectly. Having a bullet journal pretty much sounds like the best option at this point – not to mention that it’s something I can get creative with.

To make my bullet journal even more me, I would love some more things to use though. Bookish stickers, musical and foody sticky notes, for example! Or simply some perfect pens that are better to try out different writing styles. Not to mention all the washi tapes

There are so many washi tapes that I hardly know where to start!

Books, books and books!

I wouldn’t be allowed to have this blog – I think – if I didn’t at least mention.. like.. a hundred books on my wishlist? Okay, let’s not do a hundred but…

These are two boxed sets I’d still like to get!

Then I have some missing installments on my list as well..

Ink Exchange (Wicked Lovely, #2)Infinity (Chronicles of Nick, #1)
Captivate (Need, #2)Entice (Need, #3)Shadowhouse Fall (Shadowshaper, #2)
Goddess of the Rose (Goddess Summoning, #4)Goddess of Legend (Goddess Summoning, #7)

And that’s not even the new releases or other books I reallyreally want to have on my shelves… But let’s just not mention those or this post will be ridiculously long?

Oh, and for the sake of it…

Let’s just mention that book subscription boxes are always fun to get! I already have my monthly FairyLoot subscription and tried the November OwlCrate. Once money allows, I might get myself a fixed subscription for that as well but… who knows? Getting it as a gift would be pretty awesome though, haha.

What’s on your wishlist?

  1. I have a cupcake box sort of like that one. The bottom level is actually also a cupcake baking dish so I find it to be really convenient.

    This is a lovely and mostly practical Christmas wish list. I hope you get a bunch of your wished for items this holiday season.

    1. Ooh, that does sound really convenient! Although I do have three baking dishes already, haha.

      Thank you! Apparently my mother-in-law read this post and said she’s getting me the ramekins so that’s one ticked off! 😀

  2. I’ve been looking for butterflies too to add to my pictures but haven’t found any yet! I love the backgrounds as well! I usually just google and print one on A3 paper and put a book on it like that but this would be pretty cool too.. I didn’t even know this existed! Great ideas!

    1. I’m hoping there’ll be some in craft stores when Spring comes along but who knows..
      Now that’s an idea as well! Although I think I’d be afraid of messing those papers up and having to reprint them all the time, haha.

  3. Awesome list, Kathy! I sure hope you get as many items from it as possible 🙂
    That Grisha set is just to die for and I love that you love baking! I do, too, and it brings me so much joy to make any kind of sweet (but mostly eat it :P) I don’t care much for cooking, which is where my boyfriend comes in as well hahaha

    1. Thank youu!

      They are, aren’t they?! I’m purposely holding off on buying them because I sent a bunch of links to my brother to pick from for Christmas *genius* so now I have to wait and see what he’s getting me.. And then I can go ahead and buy the other things myself, haha!


  4. I think we’re twins, who knows? I want the same thing you mentioned, except for the cooking tools, because I can’t cook 😂

    1. Haha! Time to learn?!
      Baking: no problem
      Cooking: boyfriend’s job.

      I love making cake, cupcakes and stuff like that but the actual cooking is something I need recipes for. And even then it’s bound to fail one way or another. :’) *Although it is a fun way to get a take-out excuse*

  5. I love your wistlist! Ramekins is something I’d never think about for a wishlist, but it’s something I would actually put on mine, I think, haha! The box set of Shadow & Bone is also on my list, it’s so beautiful! (And I haven’t read any of Leigh Bardugo’s books… oops?! hehe!)

    1. Thank you!

      Haha, I didn’t want a whole wishlist filled with books so I had to think of some other things. *Bonus: mother-in-law reads my blog once in a while and already told me she’s getting me the ramekins, haha.*

      It is! I did read the Six of Crows-duology – I’m so genius for reading those first instead of the trilogy.. – and finished Wonder Woman: Warbringer this weekend! I do love her writing, ha. 😀
