I thought it would be fun (and useful to my husband) if I put together a Christmas wish list. A few of these things I already have but I love them so I thought I would share those with you as well.

First up, the kitchen.
If you don’t have a Blendtec yet what are you waiting for? We’ve had ours for about a year and a half now and it is seriously my favorite thing in the kitchen. It makes the best smoothies. Plus it’s super easy to sneak veggies in so the kids don’t know. It also makes soups. Which are so simple to make. You just throw everything in and blend. It even heats them up! Right now they have a deal from Black Friday though Cyber Monday for $50 off a certified refurbished model plus free shipping. That is an amazing deal. You can get the Total Blender for $229 or the Designer Series for $329.
This egg poacher is awesome. My mom has one and it is super simple to use. You just add water to the big pan, crack eggs into the little non stick pans, put on the lid, and cook. Perfectly poached eggs every time.
I have been wanting one of these bad boys for quite some time. I have visions of making homemade fruit leather and trying Danielle Walker’s Paleo chocolate granola.
Speaking of Danielle Walker, have you checked out her cookbooks yet? She has two beautiful books out. They are full of gorgeous photos and delicious recipes. So if you were thinking that you could use a little more Paleo in your life definitely check them out. She has Against All Grain: Delectable Paleo Recipes to Eat Well And Feel Great and Meals Made Simple: Gluten-free, Dairy-free, and Paleo Recipes to Make Anytime. I own them both and I love them. Even if you aren’t eating a Paleo diet these still make a great change to the everyday routine.
I would love to be able to whip up some homemade donuts. But for that I would need a donut pan. Right? Right. I have seen some great recipes around the blogoshpere that I would love to try.
I think this pan looks super versatile. Of course I would use it to make treats, but who says whoopie pie pans are just for whoopie pies? I have some savory recipes in mind for it as well.
A little something for me.
Makeup Geek Eyeshadow
If you saw my post on Instagram, then you know that I am in desperate need of new eyeshadow. I have heard wonderful things about Makeup Geek. I have yet to take the plunge because, well, they are pricier than the makeup that I buy at Target. But I am hoping to add some to my makeup collection soon. The starter kit has been on my wish list for over a year now. And they recently released a Vegas Lights pallet that I love as well. Don’t forget I will also need a Z-pallete to store them in.
And something for fun.
The Silhouette is an awesome craft tool. There is so much that you can do with it. I use it to cut stencils for wood projects and shirts. I recently got the tattoo paper. I can’t wait to give that a try. Hurry and get in on the Black Friday deals.
