What’s on Your Christmas Lemming List?

Published in: Just For Fun

Ho ho ho! Yea! The Great Christmas Lemming just teleported into town, plump with pagan magic and Christmas cheer (or is that a tapeworm?). Santa dispatched him to the blogosphere to find out what everyone wants for Christmas.


The first words out of his mouth were “Eek! Eek-ack! Ack!” which, loosely translated, mean “Tell me the top 5 things on your Christmas list, and I’ll take them back with me to the North Pole.” Please leave your list in the comments. 🙂

He says he’ll take all requests into consideration and encourages you to act now (because Christmas gifts are on a first come, first served basis this year).

My Christmas Lemming List

  1. MAC 228 Mini Shader Brush
  2. Kate Spade Pasadena Neda Wallet in Yellow
  3. Tiffany Notes Letter K Round Pendant
  4. Lululemon Althletica Course-ette Jacket
  5. Chanel Allure Eau de Parfum Spray

    I really don’t know what I want for Christmas actually. I asked my dad for MAC Vanilla Pigment and MAC pro lip erase but he said he’s just gonna give me money and I can buy whatever I want.

    I also asked for an Alexander McQueen gray skull scarf but it isn’t in stock yet and I doubt it’ll be available in time for Christmas. 🙁

    That Kate Spade wallet is HOT, yellow is my favorite color! Btw, I took pictures of my bag and what it can hold for you, they’re on my blog. 😀

    Hi Ellery,

    HA! Your dad sounds like mine. I can’t imagine my dad at the MAC counter… too funny!

    I was torn between the black and the yellow wallet. While the black is classic, you can’t help but feel cheerful when you see the yellow! 🙂 It looks like it holds a lot of stuff, too.

    I’m heading on over to see your bag… WHEEEEE!

  3. Katee says:

    My Christmas list is inappropriately expensive this year:
    Cartier Tank Watch
    Nikkon D40 Camera
    Van Cleef & Arpels Alahambra necklace
    Tom Ford Raquel Sunglasses

    All I can do is keep my fingers crossed!!

    Even though we are not Christian we used to celebrate Christmas when I was a kid, the gift part at least. The older I get though the less inclined I feel about asking for Christmas gifts. The stuff I do want I think I will just buy myself.

    1) Book of Shadows (Urban Decay)
    2) Sugar Plum Set (Korres)

    My parents are great though, so I could see them buying me a new winter coat or something during the post-Christmas sales. From my brother I will ask for him to install this crazy video game I used to play in the 1990’s onto my computer, it’ll be cheaper than buying me something and I don’t know how to set it up myself.

    Feels good to have a short list 🙂

  5. Laney says:

    I have a list a mile long, but most of it I’ll buy in the coming months… When I actually have some money to spend on myself! It’s been a year of paying bills for me!

    1) Harajuku Lover’s Solid Perfume
    2) Confessions of A Lipstick Queen by Poppy King
    3) An adorable pink pug tshirt from Fluff
    4) DDF’s Sulfur Mask
    5) Alice in Wonderland & Through the Looking Class recording

    Laney´s last blog post..Christmas with Smashbox!

  6. 1. Canon camera (ANY hella nice one will do!)
    2. Lightbox for indoor photos
    3. MAC gift certificate
    4. Sephora gift certificate
    5. “Grammar Police” t-shirt: http://www.onehorseshy.com/highbrow/grammar_police?p=onehorseshy.15109574

    Hi Shiny,

    What’s the name of your video game? I have only one installed on my computer, and I love it and hate it at the same time — Frozen Bubble.

  8. Karen says:

    Hi Laney,

    I love DDF masques. Have you ever tried their Multi-Vitamin masque? It’s good stuff!

  15. Elena says:

    Hey Karen,

    I’m sad to report that in my pre-coffee state, it took me literally minutes to realize that was an actual lemming wearing Santa’s hat in that photo. I love it, btw. 🙂

    My Christmas top five cosmetic gifts I’m lemming for are: gift cards/money for Sephora or Ulta; a Stila lip gloss set; Stila smudge pot set; a set of awesome, yet well-priced make-up brushes (hah); and a smokey eye shadow palette. Since I’m the only person in my close circle of family and friends that I trust with make-up, I just put “gift cards” on the actual list. 🙂

    Hope all is well with you today.

  24. Elle says:

    Mmmm…just one non-beauty-related thing. My own place!

    …I also wouldn’t mind another MAC 239. Those things are the best.

  25. Karen says:

    Hi Jaime,

    What a nice present! Soon you’ll have a really awesome kitchen to cook in! What colors are you going with?

    Funny you should mention etiquette books… I started to collect old etiquette books. My favorite is from the 1907, and it’s called Correct Social Usage Vol. 1 and 2 by The New York Society of Self Culture. 🙂

  26. Karen says:

    Hi Tali,

    Girl, I dream of a Tiffany ring, too! 🙂 Le sigh! I love going into the store just to drool over the jewelry.

  27. Karen says:

    Hi Cloudburst,

    Yay, the BB Metallic Lip & Eye Palette. 🙂

    I would be happy if Santa brought me a Tiffany padlock necklace, too.

  28. Karen says:

    Hi Elena,

    LOL! I am the same way for the first 30 minutes of the day. Then the coffee kicks in and the fog lifts!

    You can never go wrong with gift cards. I always put those on my list, too.

    Things are going great today. 🙂 I went for a run earlier so all the endorphins are surging. How’s your day going?

  29. Karen says:

    Hi Glosslizard,

    If you want a good all purpose camera may I suggest the Canon Elph? It’s handy and easy to use for a point and shoot.

  30. Karen says:

    Hi P. Potter,

    Nars Laguna = Love. Sadly, I can’t find mine (sigh).

    Hope you’re having a good day!

  31. Karen says:

    Hi Yadiq,

    Wow, that’s a nice gift! Hmm… I’d go for something I could use every day that would remind me of him, like a coat or a purse or maybe some cute jewelry?

  32. Karen says:

    Hi Devi Girsang,

    I know; they’re so much fun!

  33. Karen says:

    Hi Anna,

    LOL, thanks! If you want a Canon you should totally go for the Elph… it’s my fave!

  34. Karen says:

    Hi Shiny,

    I just googled it and it looks like fun! I love puzzle games. They’re so easy to get addicted to, though!

  35. Karen says:

    Hi Kerry,

    The MAC 187 is the *best* brush! Thanks for sharing your list. 🙂

  36. Karen says:

    Hi Stephie,

    Seriously, the T3 is the BEST dryer ever. I have very thick hair that’s a PIA to dry and the T3 has changed my life!

  37. Karen says:

    Hi Elle,

    Yeah, I hear ya…

    I need another 239! That’s going on the list, too!

  38. Elle says:

    Karen, I seriously need a 239 for every color family. 🙂 I will, however, settle for a nice apartment away from my overprotective and over-meddling family. 🙂 I’m sure 26 is a good age to move out of the house, eh?

  39. jojoba says:

    hi karen:

    i honestly have no lemming list!!! don’t know what i want as i think i have enough of everything. 🙂

    btw, is there a way to change the link of my post? it keeps showing the shu eye shadow reviews i did… 🙂 thanks

  40. Mel says:

    Hmmm what do I want for Christmas….
    I had to think about this for a while, no one ever asks the “grown ups” what they want 🙂 So thanks for asking! Here is what I came up with
    1. My guilty pleasure…Gackt’s new box set Nine*Nine. If you don’t know who he is, he is a BIG Jrock star, who at times wears more make-up than I do. He makes me go totally fan girl weak in the knees hehe…
    2. Sephora’s Ultimate Block Buster Collectors Edition
    3. MAC Mineralize Eye Shadow Trio Outspoken and Threesome from the “Red she Said” collection
    4. Any MAC eye brush 🙂

    not much right? HAHA…
    Merry Christmas all!

  41. Music_Is_Freedom says:

    O great and merciful Christmas Lemming, here is my list.
    Please see to it that any and all of the items are of little financial strain (what with the recession and all).

    1. Tickets to the Cirque du Soleil show premiering in 2009 (I’ve got no concrete info on its name or concept, but I really want to see it as originally conceived–before they start altering it on tour!)
    Or if that can’t be had, tickets for the arena tour of Alegría when it’s in town.

    2. Not for something new, but to find the pin I lost this summer. It was a favourite of mine.

    3. MAC makeup. Preferably LE items–a few from Hello Kitty perhaps?

    4. Some additional RAM for my computer.

    5. Health and happiness for my family.

  42. ines says:

    hi karen!
    exams and thoughts of arson (burn the psychology department at my university!!!) abound here!
    hope your week is going well.

    my christmas lemming list:
    1. clean shower fresh edp spray or prada prada edp spray
    2. nars multiples in orgasm and st. barts
    3. ugg adirondack tall boots (waterproof and fuzzy! – kind of ugg-ly but it is canada after all, cold and 6 feet of snow all around)
    4. cuisinart 4-in-1 grill (paninis AND grilled lamb chops, woohoo!)
    5. dance naturals art 509 professional ladies’ latin dance shoes, flesh silk satin and suede with 3″ flare heel (actually this would be my NUMERO UNO)

  43. Glosslizard says:

    Thanks for the recommendation, but Hubby has a bunch of Canon lenses (and a non-digital camera body)so I need the high-end digital beast that can take all his snazzy snap-ons! That’s why it’s so ‘spensive!

  44. Okami says:

    Right now, I’m hoping for a lot of patience and upper body strength – I have no mixer, and I need to make about 1000 cookies this month (no exaggeration – I’m baking Christmas goodies for over 120 people). I’m also hoping for good things for everyone, but I think the lemming was hoping for something more concrete. 🙂

    1) AT&T Fuze – it’s made by HTC, and I want one sooooo bad! I have an older PDA (so old I can’t even find a version of Acrobat Reader that works on it) and that and my cell together are taking up too much room in my purse. I want a Fuze!
    2) Benefit Powderflage. The darkness under my eyes waxes and wanes throughout the day, depending on how bad my allergies are and what my blood sugar is, but it’s always there, and Powderflage does a great job of brightening it up enough that I don’t look all zombie-like, without looking like I’m wearing makeup.
    3) Swarovski Flicker earrings. So cute!
    4) Fuzzy boucle sweaters from VS. Fuzzy sweaters are the awesome. 🙂
    5) Giant Microbes! The most adorable stuffed critters on the planet! I have a bunch, but I love them so much that I want to have them all! I am putting Brain Cell, Typhoid, Anthrax, Toxoplasmosis and Penicillin on my list for this year – just Brain Cell if I can only pick one. 🙂

  45. Archelle says:

    1. Make Up For Ever concealer palette
    2. NARS The Multiple duo in Copacabana/St. Barts
    3. A really pretty gold lipgloss
    4. My husband to read this, and buy me everything on my list!
    5. Some really good books

  46. Arianne says:

    – Bond no. 9 Mini bonbon box
    – A good powder foundation to control oil, and fairly good coverage (any recommendations?)
    – A gift card that I can use for a LOT of snowboarding this winter. 🙂
    – Boots!

  50. Marisol says:

    To be honest, there really isn’t anything that I really want. I had to submit a list to my mom and sister and it was pretty lame. I really couldn’t think of anything. I ended up sending them a link to my Amazon wish list which has the most random items in it but for some reason I want them.
