Christmastime is here! Isn't that wonderful?! Well, for kids it most certainly is. They get to wear their favorite pajamas, go to sleep, and wake up to a magical winter wonderland, a tree surrounded by presents, and decorations and lights all over the whole house.
For parents and adults without kids, though, Christmas is a different story. If you are a parent, Christmas means fighting with people in the Target parking lot, racing to get the last Lego set or box of string lights, waiting in huge lines, lugging a dying tree into your house, cleaning and cooking and wrapping and exhausting yourself.
If you are an adult without kids, it is on you to make Christmas what you want it to be. That can be great, but it can also be lonely, and not as full of cheer as you want it to be. Regardless of their situation, adults deserve Christmas gifts just as much as kids do. What they wished for might be a little different.
Whether you're a parent, a sad adult, or a mall Santa (the only three kinds of adults there are), you might be feeling a bit stressed out this Christmas.We understand. You deserve a gift! But adults don't want toys as kids do. What do adults want for Christmas? Well, they're about to tell you.
Pots and pansHeck yes! I don't know what it is, but after two months of using brand new pots and pans, they look like I've had them for centuries. Maybe I'm buying the cheap stuff.

One bill paymentGrown-ups just want money. We want to be able to pay our bills and then maybe go out to eat once in a while. Just give us money.
Peace and quietHonestly, amen. Adults get very little of this during this time of year, especially if they're parents.
Low gas pricesTo see gas prices like these would be a Christmas miracle. I want to live in a world where it doesn't cost $50 every time I fill up my car.
HousekeeperOh my goodness, someone else to clean your house?! Yes, please. Especially if he has a butt like Mr. Clean's.
