Wishlist Wednesday: Soakboxes

With the changing colors of forested hillsides, apple spice aromas filling coffee shops, and pumpkin patches in every corner, the Autumn season is in definite swing around my part of this world. That being noted, it overjoys me to think about the upcoming holiday season that soon follows. Being the obsessive gift giver, I find myself planning early each year. So I thought I'd share something from my wishlist that can be given as a gift. Soakboxes from Soak!

Each box set includes one of the following:

Small bottle of Soak wash
Small bottle of their Handmaid luxury hand cream
Essie nail polish
Skein of sport weight, hand-dyed Lorna's Laces yarn
Fiona Ellis finger-less glove pattern

Of course, not only in matching colors, but the wash and hand cream are of the same scent.

I've yet to get my hands on one of these sets, but I am loving the various hues available. These would make great holiday gifts for knitters. Don't know of a knitter? Well you're reading this aren't you? joking! But seriously, I might pick one of these up for a friend who has wanted to try knitting. She's a polish addict, so I figured this would be a perfect intro toward becoming a yarn addict too.

What's on your holiday gift and wish lists?

Wishlist Wednesday: Crafty Tents

Welcome to Wishlist Wednesday! (say that three times fast!)

This year for the holidays, Mr. mobilewill and I have decided to buildup our camping gear supply. Each year we'll typically do the bulk of our Christmas gift shopping on Black Friday. This also includes treating ourselves to some of the deals. Most of the items we covet are tech-y gadget toys, or household items like new bed sheets, etc. But this year we've decided to concentrate on camping goods.

First on our list, a tent. I came across this neat tent making company, FieldCandy, based out of England. They have some of the coolest designs for tents! I've fallen in love with a couple of their designs, especially ones with a crafty flair.

Sheep! How sweet is this?! I could totally see myself bringing along some projects to knit in this beauty.

This realistic quilted looking tent has got me feeling snug as a bug already! I love the colors and vintage feel of the design yields.

I'm not sure if we'll go this route for camping, but I do think one of these would make a lovely addition to have for guests or for any quick camping trips. 

I hope you enjoyed this Wishlist Wednesday! Looking for something tech on your wishlist? Check out mobilewill's site - I'm the latest blogger, featuring Wishlists each Thursday from now until January.
