Birthday present wish list for a 33 year old cosy-addict

It’s my birthday in just under a month and whilst I’m definitely past the age where that’s exciting in itself, I can’t deny that I enjoy unwrapping a present or three. Mr Mouse and Mother Mouse always complain that I give them any ideas for presents so in the spirit of helpfulness, here’s my wishlist for this year. Also, I do enjoy making a list…

  1. Pretty Iconic by the fabulous Sali Hughes isn’t actually out until after my birthday, but I’ll accept belated gifts..!
  2. I never got around to buying the Peony and Moss candle from Jo Malone but still lust after it. It’s sold out on their website but John Lewis still have them.
  3. I’ve wanted a dark red jumper for ages but never found one I loved; this Boden cashmere gem might be the one.
  4. My need for more eyeshadows: 1/10. My desire for this gorgeous Chantecaille Save the Lions palette: 9.999/10
  5. Diana Henry is my favourite food writer and any time she publishes a new book, I make space for it on my overflowing shelves. Simplecome take your place.
  6. I bloody love me some leopard print and I’ve been after slip-on shoes like this for an age. They’re also from Boden (who currently have 20% off everything…).
  7. If you loved the Mother sweatshirts sported by loads of people earlier in the year but felt they weren’t relevant, ta da! ‘Human’ works for almost everyone…
  8. These cashmere fingerless gloves from Turtledoves were a lifesaver for the last couple of winters – I wore them until they developed several holes. My next pair should be stripy, plsthankyou.
  9. Clouds have a bit of a personal meaning for me but they’re hard to find in jewellery form. The Clymer ring from Haykin is adorable – simple but pretty.
  10. Finally, we have new winter boots. This pair from H by Hudson are sturdy and practical, but the straps make them a bit more interesting.


There we have it. I feel I should point out that I’m in no way expecting to get all any of these things, but they’re all presents I wouldn’t throw out of bed. Oh, and I’m a size 39 or 40, and I’d like the jumper XL baggy, please…
