21-Year-Old Gives Family Ridiculous Christmas Wish List
The holidays are upon us, and how appropriate that after yesterday’s discussion of ridiculous Black Friday sales this gem appears from the interwebs.
A 21-year-old woman sent her family a lengthy Christmas wish list with insanely specific details (and links) of the items she feels entitled to, unless of course they were already purchased for her birthday.
She so kindly separates the list into ‘stocking stuffers,’ ‘smaller grade items,’ and ‘larger more expensive items.’
Check it out, courtesy of Deadspin:
I kept it simple this year. I am asking for a few things (although some what expensive). Obviously I don’t expect all of these things.
-Taylor Swift CD (Red)
-Maroon 5 CD (overexposed)
-Godiva Chocolates/Ferror Roche Chocolates (biggest box you can find!)
-Fuzzy Socks/Wool Socks/Legwarmers (any color but off white)
-Fake Diamond Stud Earrings, Fake Pearl Stud earrings
If someone doesn’t know what to get me, and they can’t afford anything listed here I am also giving giftcard options!
Victoria’s secret Giftcard because I need bras
Mac Giftcard because I am trying to switch my makeup over to Mac, currently my make up has been making me breakout
Smaller Grade Items
I need the rest of the Hunger Games series because I have already read the first book. I also want to start reading the 50 shades of gray series. I also love anything by Hunter S Thompson or Mitch Albom but I will probably like anything off the New York Times Best Seller List as well.
2. A Straightener
Nothing expensive but a good brand that will last and works for thick hair. Not the kind that dries from wet to straight, and not the ones with shine control.
3. A Curling Iron
I want one of the thick ones so I can do big barrel curls. Again nothing expensive but a good brand that is going to last.

Larger More Expensive Items
1. Black purse.
Brand doesn’t particularly matter as long as it looks good. I like all of the ones I sent you pictures of, so any of those.
2. Brown Riding Boots.
Only if they weren’t purchased for my birthday. The Brown Guess ones from Macy’s. size 8 $80
I couldn’t find the boots I had previously sent you the link too, so I found another pair that I like also from Macy’s.
“cognac” in size 8
Obviouly Uggs have gone up in price, and the “tall” ones which I want, are expensive.
prefrably mushroom but any color but rum raisin and black. size 8
I did find fake uggs that I also really like which have rubber bottoms which is perfect. These are also available through Macy’s. size 8
[Link] in tan, size 8
or these [Link] in the tan size 8
4. Laptop Bag
I did send you the link to the Michael Kors tote bag which is the correct dimensions to fit my laptop. It is a little expensive. Its available in black chestnut and sand. I would like the black.
I looked online to Vera Bradley and they didn’t have 18″ laptop sleeves but [Redacted] got on from the actual store. As far as patterns go, nothing obnoxious and please no purple!
5. Michael Kors rainboots.
They’re available through Macy’s for $80 in black size 8 please
6. Rain jacket.
I looked at North Face first and they were too expensive. I looked at LL Bean because they have the lifetime garauntee with everything you buy from there, and I looked at Columbia because they also offer a lot of outerwear.
LL Bean $89 Black Small [Link]
Columbia $65 Black Small [Link]
7. Victorias Secret Sweatsuit
I look forward to this present the most!
I love this set through victorias secret pink [Link]
pants, small, no green, indigo, deep pink, or berry please
hoodie, small, and also none of those colors + heather silver.
I also love this set as well [Link]
pants, small, no deep sea blue or gray blue
hoodie, small also not these colors + medium blue
I LOVE BOTH OF THESE HOODIES SO MUCH! small in either kind
8. Claddaugh Ring
only if it wasn’t already bought for my birthday. Sterling silver and I think my ring size is close to a 4
9. Pandora Charm
Preferably anything related to christmas, or a murano glass charm to bring some color to my bracelet. Again no pink purple or orange please.
Now, I’ve made detailed Christmas wish lists before, but the thing is, the last time I did it, I was in elementary school.
It’s one thing if someone asks you for a few ideas on what you might like, but to make a full on list of demands seems beyond childish. This GROWN WOMAN comes off sounding like a spoiled brat.
My favorite part is her opening line, saying she ‘kept it simple this year.’
At 27 years old, I feel awkward exchanging Christmas presents with my family now. Don’t get me wrong — do I love receiving presents? Of course. Do I also feel guilty asking my parents to buy me pricey things? Absolutely.
Duzzy says his mom still lavishes him and his siblings with tons of gifts on Christmas. He agrees that it feels a little strange. (Glad it’s not just me.)
Christmas always seemed to be about kids, so now I’m more inclined to spoil my 4-year-old cousin than to ask for stuff for myself.
It makes me wonder if there’s an age when you should stop asking for gifts. A lot of people have said wish lists are helpful during the holidays…understandable, but this seems extreme.
