Your Holiday Wish List: An iVillage.com Top 10

From the idealistic to the hilariously practical (a rototiller?), iVillagers have a lot on their holiday wish lists. Not sure what to ask for from your husband? Wondering what visions are dancing through other iVillagers' heads? (Hint: Definitely not sugarplums.) We asked women to share their holiday hoped-fors.


I'd like a weekend away with my friends. No husbands, no kids. I'd like my husband to surprise me with the plan, and have him take the whole weekend off to take care of the kids, so I don't have to do anything but pack and go. Of course, I'd also like peace on earth, and think I have a better chance of getting that.

My biggest wish for this holiday season is to not gain any weight and continue to lose throughout the season. I will have to be in control of my every move and emotion while all that yummy food is in my face.

Most of all, I just want my bills taken care of so I can focus on my family without that stress.

I'm wishing for a traffic-free drive to my mother-in-law's and my dad's, but if I can't get that, I'll settle for a day at the spa.

I just want world peace, an end to hunger and the love of my family... Oh, and maybe some Almond Roca (I love that stuff!).

The first two seasons of Grey's Anatomy, and money so I can buy myself what I want.

I just want my mom to get approved for the house she wants, for my daughter to enjoy all the gifts she gets, and heck, if the good Lord wills it, a good man for me. I don't need him wrapped up in the shiny paper — a bow will do me just fine.

 

The only thing I've been bugging my husband for is a rototiller.

I really want tree-stump removal for Christmas! I even asked for it for our five-year anniversary this year... I figured it counted as the traditional wood gift! I know, completely unromantic, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do, right?

I have a list posted on my fridge, it is very clear, so I don't get kitten slippers or cow pot holders ever again. It reads:
Manicure
Pedicure
1-hour massage
Diamonds
Gold
Cash

That about sums it up.
