But really, who can't think of anything to put on a list? Ever since I got flashing reindeer antlers from Secret Santa one year, I have believed in the importance of asking for exactly what you want.
My list consisted of:
- Green and Blacks chocolate
- tea towels
Perhaps not the most exciting list ever*, but look at the beautiful possibilities there are in the tea towel world.
The tea towels below are by Pintuck, a lovely British label, and cost a reasonable £9.50, including postage. I think they are very relevant in today's miserable economic climate. They have aprons too, and shopping bags.
* I really believed I could not go too wrong with this list, especially as I worked in publishing, an industry where almost everyone has impeccable style taste. I did receive a tea towel, and it was pink - not my colour - but very pretty indeed, and very useful, so thank you Secret Santa.
