Dear Santa, from Michelle

25 Nov

Santa, Christmas is one month away, as I’m sure you’re well aware. I’m also pretty certain I’ve landed a spot on your “Nice” list, because I have not been naughty this year. (Aside from that time in Rio de Janeiro, but I read your code of conduct, which states, “Naughtiness does not count if you’re on vacation in another continent. Especially if you’re single.”)

You’ve been very good to me in years past. For that, I send you much love. (Please pass that on to the Mrs. and the rest of the crew, as well.)

But, right now I’m also sending you something else: my 2010 Christmas wish list.

I won’t bother listing the regular items you so thoughtfully include every year, things like Toffifee candy and socks. No, this year I’m cutting right to the chase. Without further ado, here are the five things I’m dreaming of most: (Of course, these are aside from my standard dreams, which include a white Christmas, world peace and a date with Ryan Gosling.)

A KitchenAid stand mixer from the Custom Metallic Series. Should you deliver this to my Christmas tree, I promise to use the mixer next Christmas to whip up a batch of those milk chocolate chip cookies you adore.

This first-layer thermal underwear from Burton, called the Luxury Midweight Crew and Pant, will keep me warm when I’m downhill or cross-country skiing.

Long underwear seems like a practical request, doesn’t it, Santa? Good. Because next up on my ultimate wish list is something that falls more on the “want” than the “need” side of things. This David Yurman beauty, called the Moonlight Ice Ring with a prasiolite stone, blows my mind. If you shimmy down the chimney with this ring in your pocket, I promise to be a good girl for the rest of my life. Even when I’m single and visiting another continent.

I know you don’t like buying clothes for people, Santa. I get it — sizing is tricky. But I’m going to make this easy for you. Rich and Skinny Jeans, my favourite denim brand, has a cargo legging pant that I need, I can’t live without. So, here’s what you need to know about the pants: They’re called the Cargo Legging by Rich and Skinny. Holt Renfrew carries them. I like them in Dark Olive or Dark Moss. I’m size 26. And every time I wear them, I’ll think fondly of the Clauses.

Last but not least, I’m moving into a new apartment in December and could really use some help stocking my shelves with essentials. Like wine. If you were to wrap up a bottle or two — or *fingers crossed* a whole case — of my favourite white, Evolution, I’d be thrilled. And I’d certainly open a bottle up stat and make a toast in your honour.

That about covers my ultimate Christmas wish list, Santa, so thanks for your time and attention. I’m sure you’ll make some stellar choices this year.

But really, as long as I don’t wake up to this stocking on Christmas morning, I’ll be one happy girl:
