“A getaway to Europe is always something I dream about...and the time I can actually do it.” —Claudia Barretto

“Other than a good night’s sleep or a vacation, I think I would be happy with a complete set of the Anastasia Brow Wiz and Dipbrow Pomade for a whole year.” — Chesca Kramer, actress
“ A GoPro to record adventures next year!” —Chelsea Robato, model and blogger
“I'd like an all-expense-paid trip to a country I haven't visited like Croatia or Turkey please because traveling to a new destination is one of he best experiences one can ever have.” —Camille Co, blogger
“Round trip tickets to bring my family to Paris because I was there this year with my brother and one of my dad's dreams is to have a family photo taken under Eiffel Tower. And for John [James Uy] to give me a ring and propose!” —Jessica Yang, model

“A nice designer dress, like from Balmain.” —Julia Barretto
“Justice for all victims of rape in the Philippines and amended processes void of corruption for court proceedings to ensure more efficient justice. Presidential candidates who have the well-being of their people in mind instead of themselves and how they benefit from having power. Education for the public so that they can liberate themselves from forced ignorance from a government that benefits from them being kept in the dark. If that's too serious though, I would also love a Canon D-SLR and unity amongst Filipinos towards a positive future.” —Kat Alano, actress and activist
“World peace! Haha! Kidding aside, I don't have anything specific in mind. I'm not picky when it comes to receiving presents. The gift itself, especially if it's something that I really like, is just an added bonus. At the end of the day, it's really the thought that counts.” —Kathryn Bernardo, actress
“For Christmas, I want the Glossier Phase 1 Set by Glossier.” —Kimi Juan, photographer

“A #powercouple boyfriend for world domination!” —Mich Dulce, designer (In photo: Antoine Arnault, CEO of Berluti, chairman of Loro Piana, and son of Bernard Arnault, CEO of LVMH.) (He is currently married to model Natalia Vodianova.)
“I would love speakers I could take to the beach with me. Preferably waterproof.” —Nicole Andersson, blogger (In photo: Braven Balance Speaker)
“I always love receiving presents that I really need and use. I normally ask for specific items like white cotton handkerchiefs or colored socks. I also appreciate baby cologne like Nenuco or Denenes. However, truth be told, I appreciate a warm greeting card just as much, especially if it's handwritten and filled with warm affection.” —Rajo Laurel, designer (In photo: Denenes Colonia and Nenuco Agua de Colonia)
“Last year, my husband gave me a watch because he observed that I needed it but I never thought of getting one for myself. I hope to receive something similar that’s practical and sweet. I also want a house.” —Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio, host
“I want a Corgi!” —Saab Magalona-Bacarro, actress and blogger
“A set of three fish eye mirrors from KISH to fill our apartments empty walls or maybe a beautiful piece of artwork from a young local artist. I've never purchased art because it honestly intimidates me. But if I do purchase my first piece, it would be contemporary and from someone young as well.” —Vania Romoff, designer (In photo: KISH Fish Eye Mirror)
“Nothing can be as heavenly as to be blessed with [a] baby. I am extremely joyful to be pregnant this year, and my husband and I wish for our baby's safe delivery this January 2016.” —Isabel Roces, model and newspaper columnist
“As an avid collector, I've managed to downsize my rather big collection by selling and giving away the scents I don't use. But, I want to upgrade my fragrance choices, as well!

"A Pottery Barn nursery! Since we're almost done with [constructing it,] it will be nice to start furnishing it." —Mikaela Lagdameo-Martinez, model
Celebrities, for all the fame and money, just want the same things that we ordinary folk do when the holidays roll around. Designer swag, vacations to far-flung destinations (well, to Europe, mostly), maybe even for the boyfriend to step it up to the next level—these are all par for the course.
Others want things that aren’t quite tangible: world peace, justice, and a decent presidential candidate (because Lord knows we’re in dire need of one!).
Whether it’s something money can’t buy or not, a person’s Christmas wish list is telling of their current state of mind—or imagination. Either way, they’re giving some really good ideas for what to ask Santa for this year!
