What's on YOUR Christmas List?

So the holidays are upon us once again! :D I love jumping into the holiday spirit as early as I can and am curious to hear what is on your Christmas/Hanukkah/etc lists this year, whether they be physical or other wishes.

I want a Batman hoodie. I'm obsessed.
And an iPod touch 16 gb, although I might buy this one used at my university.
I also want to spend time with my extended family in CA that I don't get to see very often. That would be lovely.

It's the most wonderful time of the year! So please, feel free to share. :P

    Our lists might be a lot more boring than yours. :) I am thinking...

    - New slippers
    - A non-stick rack for my roasting pan
    - Nate Silver's new book

    Just want to see my sons.

    Living overseas while they are in college is harder than I imagined.
    Can't wait to meet up with them in Spain/Portugal for Xmas and NY.

    Hey-say hi to my alma mater for me! My family does pretty well with gifts, but I hope my kids do a stocking for me again. My mom used to find all sorts of little personal things for each of us-well after we were grown and even married. I've continued that tradition with my kids, but my stocking is usually empty. A couple of years ago my kids went out and found all sorts of great things so I'm hoping they'll do it again. It was so much fun unwrapping each thing.

    I want an iPhone5 in a bad way.

    I also covet these Cole Haan loafers. Since they are now half price I may have treated myself. I hope they fit, I bought them a 1/2 size big but every other Cole Haan shoes I tried on I needed the bigger size. Here's crossing my fingers. :)

    I want tires and grad school app fees paid. Yay -.-

    ETA: Spending Christmas with my family. This will be my first Christmas in three years where I'm actually not working on Christmas and get to spend the whole day with my family. The last two years, it's been Christmas Eve only. I am so incredibly excited.
