Getting what is on your Christmas list is not difficult. There are several ways that you can make sure that you get what you want this year. I believe, that unless you are asking for something outlandish that isn’t in the budget, that of course you should get what is on your Christmas list. A lot of people feel guilty for knowing what is at the top of their Christmas list and for having desires for things they want but there is no reason to.
I think it is a terrible shame to open a gift to find a gift that was so far off the radar of what was topping your Christmas list that it is unbelievable. If someone is going to purchase a gift for you then why shouldn’t it be what you want? Of course you don’t want to tell someone that is not close to you what is on the top of your Christmas list. But with someone that you are very close to such as your spouse or your parents, I see no problem with it.
If you are lucky, they will ask you what you would like and you can tell them what is on your Christmas list. If they don’t, there is nothing wrong with dropping a few subtle hints. If you think that they are not the type that will get your hints then it is okay to take a more direct approach. You don’t have to come right out and tell them what you want. However, it is fine to make a statement that you know exactly what is topping your Christmas list if they need some help coming up with ideas.
