As we are just over 2 weeks out I thought it would be fun to see what everyone wants for Xmas? A new piece of technology? Computer, Tablet, Gaming console? Maybe a new piece of clothing or.....?

Maybe its not an item, just happiness for yourself and the others around?

I enjoy getting gifts but I much prefer giving them, especially to children. Makes them very happy and makes you feel good :)

Well I have small kids, and they are always bringing home some bug or another so most of this year I have spent reaching for tissues. I'd like a month illness free, and I'd love some Beyerdynamic T1's :)

You got it. I work in a sales call centre for both Aus and NZ. Who knew people wanted to buy a steam mop on Christmas Day?
