➜ 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.

☆ A mixtape. You can put it on 8tracks or however you'd like it ;; I really like music. Here are some songs I've liked recently!
☆ Holiday greetings (video or audio)? :D Or if you're shy a handwritten message would be nice too ♡
☆ Nice messages (snaps cup style?) for me to read when I'm sad. Or just things to put in my happy box. (Inspiring quotes, pretty pictures, general pick-me-ups and encouragement...)
☆ A Love Equation dress...? (Now I can't decide if I want the hoodie or the dress more ;;)
☆ A new LJ layout...? I like clean layouts with a lot of space but I've had this one for years now.
☆ Things I can put on my wall :) Right now just my Utopia poster is there. Pictures, postcards, anything!
☆ Notepads or notebooks made out of recycled paper (I've never moved on from the stationery a friend gave me from this place.)
☆ Good friends to go through 2016 with ♡ #peptalkclub
