Twice a year- just before my birthday and Christmas- my friend Amy tells me that I am impossible to buy gifts for. This statement never fails to make me laugh because I make a list of things I want and post it on the internet about once a week. I  posit that I am actually the easiest person in the world to shop for.

Nevertheless, Amy inspired me to make a PSYWL specifically for people who are (allegedly) difficult to shop for. Just in case you know anyone (allegedly) like that.



Frye Dorado Riding $457. True story: two years ago, I bought a pair of Frye boots. A way less expensive pair than these. I spent an entire weekend taking them out of the box, trying them on and admiring them. I loved those boots! But I couldn’t keep them because I am just not the kind of person who spends two hundred dollars on boots. But oh Lord how I wish I was!

It would be fun to collect trophies and loving cups, particularly ones like this one that were won for something totally obscure. $40.

How sweet is this dress? And the best part is that it’s made of wool. And awesome. Just like everything else Ibex makes.

I can’t decide if these Twitter journals are cool or narcissistic. Maybe both?

Truffle Pig Chocolates! $7.50. (via Lynnette C.)

I am in love with Wooly Bison’s bags, but this one is particularly wonderful. $185.

This preppy, 100% wool felt laptop case makes me want to go back to school. $100.

Charming notebook. $12.

Lovely beehive note cards. $3.

Young James Herriot $24. The good news is that this one DVD contains the whole series. The bad news is that that the BBC only made three episodes. Which stinks because I in love with Young James Herriot and I miss him already.

I really, really, really hope Santa brings me a Baking Steel because I have always wanted to make restaurant quality pizza at home. $72.

If money were no object, I would love the Logos Decagon infinitely extendable modular tent system. You can configure it in lots of different ways and it would be so great for having friends stay over during our twice-yearly shearing weekends. Approximately $3500 for this configuration. (via my friend Lyn C.)

Okay, your turn. What’s the one thing on your Christmas list that you’d never buy for yourself?
