It is alright to not give someone something. People have different circumstances - you may not have to money, you may not have the time, or you may not have a particularly close relationship with someone. It's fine! Don't feel bad. It's not necessary.
And now, a few guidelines:
→ I'm not really going to limit myself, as this really will be a compilation of all of the thing I want. There will undoubtedly be items on here that seem a bit ridiculous to include - overpriced or large in size - but these are the items that I just would like to keep track of. Don't mind my outrageous taste. Also, some of them may be material, others creative, perhaps one or two ethereal.
→ I'll update my list from time to time, removing the things that I have acquired, that I no longer want, that I have received, or that have been set aside.
→ I do not expect a thing. This list is just here as an opportunity for someone who may be interested in granting wishes... I'll be looking to grant other's wishes. If that doesn't interest you, it's totally cool. There's no obligation. This isn't a popularity contest. I'd just like to grant some wishes as finances, creativity, and time allow. That's all this is.
→ This is entirely geared toward good feelings and gratitude. I'll be thanking those who grant wishes, maybe even if it's not necessarily one of mine.
→ I'll be compiling a list of other people's lists. If you notice someone else's list, or you have one of your own, please share it with me.

CLOTHING. [SIZING INFO: SIZE M/L SHIRTS, SIZE US 10 PANTS, SIZE US 10.5/11 SHOES | YOU CAN MESSAGE ME FOR MY ADDRESS] Priorities at the moment include: boots, a black cropped leather jacket, pullover sweaters, thick socks and tights, a warm pajama set. I prefer clothing in subdued colors [black, navy, gray], in orange [think the burnt orange of autumn], or in jewel-toned red or green. I would love gift cards for Zara, Asos, and Etsy.
ACCESSORIES. Earrings [pierced, but not too dangly, preferably in silver], scarves, long [24" ] necklaces, beanies, nail polish, lip balm, and lipstick. I love MAC Cosmetics.
HOME. Cool photos in a decent resolution that I can print as a 4x6 or 8x10 to hang about my room. Loose tea [I prefer fruity ones].
READING MATERIAL. I love young adult literature , but I'm not averse to to much, perhaps with the exception of horror and extreme science fiction. Mostly, I'm looking for poetry collection that I haven't read. I've read quite a bit of Sylvia Plath and Richard Siken, and I like what I've read of AE Housman. Also, I would love fashion magazines, whether they're old or new - I love looking at the editorials, and occasionally, I tear through the pages for inspiration. Also, I'd love to read anything, personal or theoretic, about feminist topics.
MUSIC. Share songs, albums, and artists that you like with me. I like to think that I have diverse taste. I like One Direction,Taylor Swift, Passion Pit, The Airborne Toxic Event, Andrew Belle, Ellie Goulding, Florence the Machine, Hoodie Allen, Macklemore, Of Monsters and Men, The XX, and You Me At Six.
FANDOM. Mixes, fics, and fic recs. I love a lot of fandoms, but Elementary, Cover Affairs, and Suits are my most sought out ones, as it seems I have to scavenge, whereas fandoms like Doctor Who are more readily available.
OTHER. I'd love to get snail mail - and even send some. I think care packages would be an awesome surprsie...
SHARE. Share inspirational stories, pretty things, things you stumble upon, recent additions to your wishlist - anything! I want to get to know more people, and I like hearing about just about everything. Talk to me. Also, share your wishlist with me, and maybe grant someone else's wish? Also, give me the opportunity to give you something! If it's getting close to your birthday, let me know. If it's getting close to your birthday and you love elephants, tell me that, too! If you're eager to read a particular book, ask if I can lend it to you or send you an ebook or a link to where you can get it. Please don't hesitate to ask me for help - I might not be able to help you out, but I would like the opportunity to!
I realize this is a bit ridiculous, but I'm perfectly okay with that.
