seasonal wishlist...  
Step One

- Make a post (public, friendslocked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.

- If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.

- Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, so that the holiday joy will spread.

Step Two

- Surf around your friendslist (or friendsfriends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their list. And now here's the important part:

- If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.

You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.

There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.

1 - thermal underwear. Seriously, UK womens size 16. (or 14/16 if that's how they're sold)

3 - The Avengers films on DVD

4 - Music recs

9 - all of you to have a wonderful holiday period.

1 - absolutely - so long's it's warm!!! Hee!

4 - I recognise the name, I will check him out!

6 - It would be the best present EVER!

7 - He's such a sweetheart, he does whatever everyone else wants to do... he's 'techy' though. He was showing his mum how to use the computer when he was 3 so...

How about an update?

1 - Is going in the mail as soon as I've finished packing the rest of my Christmas mail and leave to pick up my kid.

7 - Hm, so he sounds clever. Have you thought about a telescope? There are smaller ones for kids. Or we've bought some "experiments" for our son - like making your own rubber ball or a volcano and stuff like that. Ours are from age 8, but he sounds like he'd manage already. And it wasn't that difficult.

8 - I guess I'll come back to you around Christmas? I have an idea of what I want, but I don't really know...if that makes any sense.

When you say 'Avengers' films do you mean Phase one like Thor, Iron Man etc?

I have a copy of Thor (I upgraded to a BluRay with a spare DVD) I will post to you.

Welcome. It's very likely I'll upgrade Capt America and the Iron Man films in the new year so I may have those for you too.
