If you are still looking for the perfect gift for your bestie, pregnant sister, any other basic female, or even yours truly 😉 …today’s post is for you!

I’m a fairly practical gift-wisher (I’m making that a thing). I don’t regularly buy myself a lot so I like to make it count and ask for practical and affordable things, even for Christmas – which I know is different from other people’s philosophy! Either way is great but basically what I’m trying to get at here is that basically everything here is less than $50, which makes anything here perfect for almost anyone on your list!! Happy shopping :)

christmas 2015 wishlist

1. J. Crew Moccasins | Because my free VS slippers from two years ago are looking rough! Only to be worn in the house husband, I promise.

2. J. Crew Pom Hat | Super, super obsessed with pom hats! Love this J. Crew one but any will do. Now, if it will only get cold in Southern Indiana.

3. Old Navy Maternity Workout Tee | This bump is growing and my workout clothes are not. Old t-shirts have been on a much heavier rotation than normal.

4. Old Navy Maternity Compression Pants | See above.

5. AEO Draped Sweater | I’ve been lusting over this sweater for a while! Perfect for my main wardrobe staple these days…my Blanqi leggings.

6. H&M MAMA Skinny Jeans | I’ve heard good things about these H&M maternity jeans! That’s rare so I’d like to give them a shot.

7. H&M MAMA Sweatshirt Dress | Because as long as this post is, I’m still pregnant.

8. 18′ Clear Barcelona Vase | I’ve been lusting over these for a while but haven’t pulled the trigger.

9. White Velvet Plum Blossoms | For my new vases, duh.

10. Halogen Olsen Flat | I have had serious FOMO since everyone else on earth purchased these flats during Nordstrom’s Friends and Family sale. I happen to know these are already under my grandparent’s tree waiting for me, hooray!

11. Gray Monroe Ryann Bootie | A great knockoff of these Sam Edelman ones I’m obsessed with for less than 1/4 of the price! Luckily, I know these are already under my own tree because Santa’s Grey Monroe package got delivered to my front door 😉

12. Anthropologie Monogram Pendant Necklace | Because you have to have a few things that are completely not practical, just fun!

13. 11×14 Hello Cocky! Print | Even though I mentioned it eons ago in this post, I’m still obsessed with it for my office and haven’t bought it yet.

14. Seriously Delish Cookbook | Jess of How Sweet Eats is my idol. I need her cookbook, like STAT.

Happy Shopping! Linking up with Katie and Kristen.

    Those World Market vases have been on my wish list forever, too! Love them paired with the plum blossoms. I just got that J Crew pompom hat a couple of weeks ago and it’s the best!! Hope Santa is good to you this year! 😉

    I like to be pretty practical with my gifts…but a lot of stuff I ask for is clothing which I don’t necessarily need, but will definitely wear! I ran out of stuff I want so I asked for grocery store/Amazon gift cards which would be put to practical use!!

    I am so a frivolous and decadent gift giver (over practicality)but I still love many pieces on your wish list. The J.Crew slippers look so cozy and make a great blend of luxurious and useful!
