As our grandmothers have told us repeatedly, Christmas isn’t a time to be greedy, and we couldn’t agree more. But Christmas is definitely a time for hope. Which is why, we think it’s absolutely legit to hope that you get nothing but fabulous presents from whoever chooses to hand them to you. Just in case our Secret Santas, parents, significant others are reading, here’s a list of five things we wouldn’t mind getting this Christmas…

5 goodies we want from our secret santa mini telescope 430x550

A mini telescope for all your travels
Wanderlust has been a constant in our life for as long as we can remember. And what better way to wear it on our sleeve, or our neck rather, than the sweetest mini telescope pendant in bronze, right?
Find this at Shop Lune on Etsy; price on request

5 gifts we want from our secret santa jumper 430x550

A jumper to add some colour to Christmas
There’s no better excuse than the current dip in temperatures to wrap ourselves up in our warmest best. Which is why, at a time when everyone is feeling the nip in the air, this super colourful, Manish Arora-esque jumper is our best bet when it comes to giving our winter closet a much needed makeover. In fact, we love it so much we see ourselves wearing it well into the summer with the teeniest shorts as well.
Find this at 8teenStyleBoulevard’s Online Shop on Facebook, priced at ₹1,760

5 gifts we want from our secret santa 430x550

The Wizard of Oz (Embroidered Cover Penguin Classics)
Dorothy and her ruby slippers never really left us after we first read about them when we were little, which basically means that gifting us any version (illustrated, abridged or even the movie) is more than welcome; especially when it comes with this beautiful embroidered cover and all the characters.
Find this at Ikka Dukka’s online store, priced at ₹699

5 gifts we want from our secret santa jacket 430x550

Masaba’s Cute-as-a-Button jacket
We’re big suckers for jackets, especially the ones with colour. So when we spotted this Masaba Lite jacket with the best retro cycle print, apty named, ‘Cute as a button,’ we reacted by sending out telepathic messages to our Secret Santa. Come to think of it… who wouldn’t?

5 goodies we want from our secret santa shoes 430x550

Beige studded heels from Forever 21
Everything that can be said about a girl and her shoes has been said already. So without taking objection to any of that, we’d be hoping to get these beige beauties in our list of presents this year… because we know all too well that a shoe in beige with perfect rivet work and gold metallic studs is a combination that isn’t easy to come by.
