COTE DE TEXAS: YEAH!!! The 2021 Bestie Christmas List!!!!

YEAH!!! The 2021 Bestie Christmas List!!!!

And, finally, here it is!  

Cue the bugles!!!

The long awaited Cote de Texas’ Bestie Christmas List is finally finished.  This tradition started a few years ago after I published my first Christmas List and my Bestie told me she had her own list of  favorite gifts, an even better list!!!   And so, it became a sort of tongue-in-cheek contest – whose list was better?  We’ve never really gotten an answer from anyone and it always ends up with us deciding ourselves whose list was more appealing. Although this year, we swore to take the competition out of it and just enjoy the spirit of the season!

Honestly…I feel that way, drained from the news and the world.  No competition.   I just want us all to get along again without political firestorms and arguments over vaccines and masks.  And can we finally, once and for all,  just get rid of that damned Covid this year? 

I’m hoping that 2022 will bring safety back to our streets and homes and online shopping won’t be just an outlet to avoid scary malls. 

And on a lighter note, maybe even the British Royals will forgive and forget and reconcile this year???  No?  That’s asking too much?

Finally, from us both, we wish you all – everyone – a healthy and very happy and peaceful Christmas and New Years and 2022!!!

And now, the Bestie’s Christmas List for 2021 – enjoy!

Here’s to a wonderful 2022!!

  1. Bubuza didn't do a dang thing for me, so I bought an Aspinal from Harrods and I feel like a new person! I really look forward to these lists each year - such great ideas! Thanks for sharing them with us.

  2. You had to put something political in at the very end, even when you're trying to sell stuff, with that stupid Farkle woman, didn't you? You just CANNOT help yourself. Why not just shoot yourself in the foot. So lame.
