    Christmas wish list.....aruba style

    If someone were to Christmas shop in Aruba for you, what would be on your list?

    I'd have a few items to wish for:

    my unrealistic list:

    Lizzardo's house @ Catalina Cove
    and
    200,000,000 SWA rapid reward miles


    my realistic list:

    Aruba's Hands by Gaby glass jewelry
    Aruba Aloe products
    A few pieces of some Aruba pottery

    reality: a Christmas ornament, magnet, picture frame or drink ware. Those are our go-to gifts to ourselves.

    fantasy: a 2 bedroom Playa Linda timeshare so I don't have to figure out what we are going every year and we have an extra room to invite guests.
    Always planning our next trip

    My reality gift : a book with stories and pictures of all our memories so when I get older I can look back.
    Fantasy: to be a citizen of Aruba (so I can stay there forever and ever) and own a penthouse with at least 3/4 bedrooms with bathroom suites in each one for guest.... of course I will need a person or two to clean and tend to my needs.
