➜ Make a post (public, friends-locked, filtered...whatever you're comfortable with) to your LJ. The post should contain your list of 10 holiday wishes. The wishes can be anything at all, from simple and fandom-related ("I'd love a Snape/Hermione icon that's just for me") to medium ("I wish for _____ on DVD") to really big ("All I want for Christmas is a new car/computer/house/TV.") The important thing is, make sure these wishes are things you really, truly want.
➜ If you wish for real life things (not fics or icons), make sure you include some sort of contact info in your post, whether it's your address or just your email address where Santa (or one of his elves) could get in touch with you.
➜ Also, make sure you post some version of these guidelines in your LJ, or link to this post (it'll be public) so that the holiday joy will spread.
➜ Surf around your friends-list (or friends' friends, or just random journals) to see who has posted their lists. And now here's the important part:
➜ If you see a wish you can grant, and it's in your heart to do so, make someone's wish come true. Sometimes someone's trash is another's treasure, and if you have a leather jacket you don't want or a gift certificate you won't use--or even know where you could get someone's dream purebred Basset Hound for free--do it.
You needn't spend money on these wishes unless you want to. The point isn't to put people out, it's to provide everyone a chance to be someone else's holiday elf--to spread the joy. Gifts can be made anonymously or not--it's your call.
There are no rules with this project, no guarantees, and no strings attached. Just...wish, and it might come true. Give, and you might receive. And you'll have the joy of knowing you made someone's holiday special.
★ - Kpop merch - Mostly INFINITE, oops. It goes from
★ - Candles - I absolutely adore candles, especially from Yankee Candle! I like votives as they’re cheap, still burn a decent time and allow me to test lots of scents (+ they look pretty on my headboard ;;;;). Sweet Strawberry (!!), Red Raspberry, Cherry Lemonade, Juicy Watermelon, or Sun&Sand are scents I would like to try but feel free to have fun and pick scents you think would match me <3 Candles from other places are always welcome, of course! (such as IKEA’s vanilla candle which is cheap and smells pretty good for its price!)
★ - Fics - I’ve never had a fic written for me outside of exchanges and well, it would please me a lot, especially if it’s a fic not prompted by me but just something that you think I would enjoy reading :) If you need prompts, I will happily submit a list.
★ - Lipsticks and tints (various price range o/) - Laneige Two Tone Lipbar Lipstick (in shades 02, 01, 09, 04, 08), Peri’s Ink (shades #1, #3, #5) The Faceshop Ink Lipquids (shades Shah Pink, Pink Hommage, Apple Red, Coral Chu), Tony Moly Delight Liptint (shade #2 - Red), Water Sliding Tint (in shades #1 - Pink Prism, #3 - Sweet Heart, #7 - Crazy Ruby, #12 - Fruit Punch, #14 - Carribean Red, #15 - Cherry Coke)

I strongly encourage you to do it, too! Even if you don’t have a LJ account! Tumblr, Twitter, a gdoc, everywhere works as long as there’s a link to share! :)
Also, if you’re planning on getting me something, just say so in comments? You don’t have to say what it is, but just that you are so people can contact you and maybe avoid picking and sending the same thing :’) (which would end up being quite awkward... )
If you need my address, just PM me or holla’ at me at @gyupcake *w*
