How To Subtly Drop Hints For Your Christmas Wishlist Without Being Too Obvious

1. Talk About Your Hobbies. Loudly.
You know when someone says “I love cooking, but I just don’t have the tools,” and then you do a sneaky side-eye and think “Oh, I’ll get you those tools.”

How relieved are you when they drop a nugget of a hint like that? Spread that same love and work your hobbies into conversation - and underline how you wish you had more things to make them more permanent.

Stress how you’d run more if only you had cute workout clothes to motivate you, mention how you'd probably read more if you had a cozy blanket, or how you’d actually tackle those Pinterest recipes if only you had fancy icing tools. It won’t sound like a hint - but your listener is going to hear you loud and clear.
