I've never been a jewelry, clothes, and make-up kind of girl. Power tools and technology gifts have always been my favorite. I would much rather have something for our house than new clothes. Now, that's not to say that I wouldn't appreciate a lovely pair of diamond earrings from my husband!
Since my birthday is rolling around next month (I totally thought I was going to be 32 again, and my "seester" had to remind me that, in fact, I was going to me 33. What a downer.) and Christmas is two months after that, I thought I would help my family out with a "wish list"! HeHeHe (Insert an eye roll from my mother)
The Shark Navigator Lift Away vacuum
I have a Bissell Healthy Home vacuum, and I HATE it! It's large, heavy and loud. I bump into everything when I use it.
Here's what the Shark website has to say: "The NEW Shark® Navigator™ Lift-Away® is the most versatile, portable, powerful and affordable upright you'll ever own. Clean faster, easier and better than ever before with Navigator™'s No Loss of Suction technology, Lightweight Detachable Canister, Swivel Steering, and Anti-Allergen Complete Seal Technology™ - all backed by a 10 year warranty!"
I have read many reviews on this vacuum, and all of them have said that this is the best vacuum ever! You can find it on Amazon for $179, but I plan on buying it at Bed, Bath, & Beyond and using a 20% off coupon (unless someone wants to buy it for me! :) )
A 12 inch Miter Saw with Laser
I'm not going to be "brand picky" on this one (though I do love the DeWalt yellow!). For my needs, a miter saw from Harbor Freight will do just fine. I asked some fellow bloggers what they would recommend, and they all said to go ahead and get a 12 inch and make sure it has a laser! I do have a miter box and have used it for projects, but my patience level and the miter box do not go together well!
Brad Nailer/Air Compressor Combo Kit
Doesn't this look like so much fun to use?! If I had the miter saw AND the brad nailer combo kit, I may never leave the garage!
Again, I'm not picky on the brand. Many DIY'ers say the cheaper models are the way to go since I'm not going to be building a house anytime soon. This would make projects with curvy cuts so much easier! Centsational Girl used her jig saw to make some fabulous cutting boards! I have plans to make a tufted headboard for our master bedroom very soon, and I would love for it to have some "curves"!
I don't think I'm asking too much, do you?! Don't answer that!
