What’s On My Holiday Wish List?

act-woolen-mittensWhat do you dream of this holiday season? In The Sound of Music, Julie Andrews sings about a few of her favorite things: “raindrops on roses, whiskers on kittens,” “brown paper packages tied up with strings”, “bright copper kettles” and even “warm-woolen mittens.” You’ve probably already heard the song on your local holiday radio station this year: since the movie came out in 1965, “My Favorite Things” has become a classic holiday song, recorded by everyone from Andy Williams to The Carpenters.

While Andrews’ character, Maria, likes simple natural things, other famous Christmas wish lists are considerably more glamorous and luxurious. Think of Oprah’s “Favorite Things” lists or the gorgeous Neiman Marcus fantasy catalogs that are much-awaited parts of every holiday season at my house. I confess that my own holiday favorites are considerably less plain and nun-like than sweet Julie Andrews!

My holiday wish list sounds more like Eartha Kitt’s “Santa Baby.”   That’s why I look forward to the Oprah and Neiman Marcus holiday lists every year-it’s amazing to see all the interesting and creative gifts that it is possible to buy your loved ones and yourself.   From a souped up sleigh (a 2013 McLaren 12C Spider priced at $354,000) to a walk-on role in a Broadway muscial ($30,000) to his and her watches by Van Cleef & Arpels ($1,090,000–the hefty price tag includes a trip to Paris and Geneva, but still!) it’s fun to dream big.  My fantasy Christmas gift?  A set of heirloom family silver.

Meanwhile, if you’re looking to give fantastic gifts with more modest price tags  to your employees, volunteers, or clients,  A Creative Touch is here to help.  We’ll find quality, creative promotional products that are guaranteed to become some of their favorite things!
