Get Gifted: Maddie's Wish List
For my holiday wish list this year, the things I chose are all over the place, which is how my brain feels most of the time. Everything I chose would be excellent for multiple people, like the creative person in your life, someone who enjoys bright colors, record albums, or having a great winter complexion. See, I told you my choices were all over the place! —Maddie
1. Vampire Weekend Modern Vampires of the City
Frankly, it took me about six months to fully appreciate this record for what it's worth. Vampire Weekend's third LP is a total masterpiece, and a little bit different from their earlier material, but just as catchy. I want to pop this into my record player and pretend I'm sitting in the sun on Cape Cod with Ezra Koenig.
2. UO Sticker Collage iPhone 5/5s Case
I always tend to put stickers on the back of whatever boring iPhone case I have at the moment, so I love this case because it does all the work for me. It includes unicorns, stars, kittens, ice cream... basically everything cute, ever.
3. 1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die by Robert Dimery
I'll admit it, I'm not the world's biggest reader, but if it's music related, I'll probably pick it up. Anyone who is into that stuff should check this book out. Definitely a great way to continue to build that vinyl collection, right?
4. Andrea Garland Rose & Hazelnut Daily Moisturizer
It's wintertime, which means we all need a good moisturizer. This one by Andrea Garland sounds lovely and can be applied daily. Smelling like roses and hazelnuts is an added bonus.
5. Magical Thinking Enamel Confetti Box
I have so many random little things in my room, especially various pins that say silly phrases or have band's logos on them. This adorable and sparkly box will be great to hold all of the things I never know what to do with.
6. Fujifilm INSTAX Mini Rainbow Film
I love taking my INSTAX camera with me as many places as possible during winter break, because there's always so many fun things to take a snap of. (And by snap, I do not mean Snapchat.) This rainbow film will nicely spruce up the photographs I take this holiday season.
7. Vans Sk8-Hi Leather Women's High-Top Sneaker
I don't think any girl can deny that shoes are the way to her heart, so for the holidays, I would very much like this pair of leather sneakers by Vans. They're an updated version of the classic Sk8-Hi, made of slick leather. A little boyish and way classy at the same time.
