Question for the personal finance blog community

What do you want for Christmas? Usually I want things that I wouldn't normally buy for myself such as car parts to pimp my VW GTI. If you could get one thing for Christmas this year what would it be and why?


  1. Since we can afford to buy what we want when we want most of the time, what I would really appreciate would be for someone to contribute money to my future child's education fund every year for Christmas until they were 18. There is $1000 in it right now, and lets say I had a kid in the next 2 years...and every year $200 was put into his account...he would have an additional $9750 in 20 years at 5%. Now, its not a lot, but by then maybe we can buy a book or two!

  2. I pretty much do it along the same lines you do. Ask for things like clothing or money.

  3. Insulation

    because I need it and I don't have the money to buy it.

    the same goes for shoes.

    I don't really want much in general. Honestly, I'd love it if my parents, who are not so great with money would take what they would usually spend on me (too much) and pay down their debt.
