Don’t know what to buy that person who has everything? Well, I’ve found about 50 items they don’t know they’re missing.

What is that tinkling music I hear in the wind? Ah yes, it’s the Chanukah joy approaching. The season of expressing appreciation will quickly be upon us, and it’s time to make note of all of our favorite people’s favorite things.

I have been asked for a peek at my own gifting wish list. Now, some may call me a “high maintenance lady” but I prefer to refer to myself as a lady with “distinguishing taste.”

As an Insta blogger, my photos are set up to portray especially enticing images. Of course it does help that I have a cultivated sense of fashion, flair, and beauty, which better enables me to present the best version of my skills to you, my darling public.

Special occasions are often marked by the giving of lavish gifts to loved ones far and near. As a lady of distinguished tastes myself, there is an ongoing mental list kept in my mind of things I’d like to have/need to have/absolutely dying to have. These gift ideas are helpful inspiration to my loved ones when it’s time for gift-giving.

I will share some of these ideas that are so close to my heart, to help you this Chanukah season, even if the only use you have for this list is your own window shopping enjoyment and the spur to create wish lists of your own.

Your loved ones will be over the moon with any of these great finds, however I can’t promise not to be stricken green with envy when you rip off the gift wrapping to reveal a gift that I myself would love to get my ringed little hands on. Therefore, I will say that I am completely open to being on the receiving end of your gifting love.
