I don't have any specific wants right now. I've got enough on my fragrance plate to occupy me for a long time. Maybe a gorgeous vintage parfum. Or a classic Hermes scent. Or a set of vintage "snips" of bygone fragrances. I've been reading about those lately. A bottle of Jean Nate concentrated cologne spray, which is impossible to find in the drugstore now (not the awful reformulated splash, the cologne spray). A vintage bottle of musk oil from the 70s. A Boadecea the Victorious fragrance (just for the beautiful bottle). Or even a box of dusting powder with the powder puff in a classic fragrance. Beautiful soaps. Umm...I can think of all kinds of things that would thrill me from low cost to pretty high (for me), but I don't need a thing....(Santa Baby, are you listening? Lol!!).
SouthernGardens, I'm so sorry about your partner being laid off. We have been through that, and so many others have and are going through it now. Things will get better, just hang in there. It sounds like a platitude, but you don't need a lot of spending money to have a beautiful Christmas as long as you've got each other. I heard a pop Christmas song on the radio yesterday while driving, and it really irked me, frankly. It was only Nov. 9th. I really dislike being manipulated, and so I refuse to be.
