Your Christmas wishlist
Time Out readers tell us what they want for Christmas this year
Peace and harmony around the world
A lie in and a cup of tea in bed please!
For the children of Syria to have an extra blanket on their bed this Christmas and that they find sanctuary.
Just one full day where my two year old doesn’t throw himself on the floor in a tantrum!
To be honest... more time with my kids.
The kids’ school fees paid!
To experience the Christmas I had as a child. Full of excitement, anticipation and the thrill of wondering if the man in red would arrive or not...
For my friend to get pregnant.
Good health for myself and everyone I know.

I wish for a little piece of back home this Christmas. I miss late night shopping, wrapping up cosy, hot chocolate with marshmallows and cream and mince pies!
Louise Alexander Shaw-Jones
To see my girls happy and smiling on Christmas Day!
An actual whole night’s sleep.
All I want for Christmas is for my five-year-old daughter’s legs to get stronger so she can start walking.
I want a spa day and my daughter wants to see her grandparents.
Lara May Owgan
On a serious note, a cure for cancer and fewer shootings in the USA. On a fun note, more rainy days and a Prada handbag!
To enjoy my soon-to-be two-year-old’s last Christmas as an only child and not have it gate-crashed by the early arrival of baby girl #2 (which if she arrives three weeks early like her big brother did, could very well happen!
For my husband to do the night feeds for a week!
To be with my grandparents, enjoying a traditional Christmas dinner and rubbish karaoke for afters like I did when I was little.
To enjoy my Christmas dinner rather than have to give birth as per my really inconvenient due date!
Someone else to wash up after Christmas dinner.
A proper traditional Christmas with family all around my toddler...and my great uncle in his chair falling asleep... priceless things that money cannot buy.
All I want for Christmas is for my mum to be around for the next Christmas.
To be able to bring my son’s grandparents over to celebrate. He misses them so much.
To be able to sleep past 6am on weekends without the kids waking me up for breakfast!
An Yves Saint Laurent handbag.
A new job!
12 hours of uninterrupted sleep!
A long lie-in, breakfast in bed and possibly a massage, then an adventure to a waterpark with my family. My little boy (three) wants a dinosaur and a crocodile.
What the kids are wishing for this Christmas
By Time Out Kids staff
‘I really want a new Elsa dress as mine is too small now. And a pink yo-yo. And a puzzle that is not too hard with princesses on it.’
‘I want a really soft Minnie Mouse that I can have in my bed. And a pet hamster like my big cousin has.’
‘I want Father Christmas to bring me a magic wand that does real magic with real fairy dust in it. And a pair of clippy-cloppy shoes like mummy has.’
