Dear Amazon Santa...

Somehow, Amazon Prime Day wasn't really on my radar until last year when everyone started talking about the great deal they got on their Instant Pot, but for the last 364 days, I've definitely been thinking about my Amazon Wish List in a different way.

Here are a few things that are already on sale or I've heard may be during the 36 hours of Prime Day.

Wireless Headphones

 These Jabra Elite wireless  Bluetooth headphones  are normally about $100 but will be on sale for $70 throughout Prime Day. For some, the appeal is probably that they're Alexa-enabled,but for me, it's more about the fact that I'm constantly yanking my earbuds out of my phone during my morning run and these would make that problem go away.

Sous Vide Cooker

 I don't know the details yet, but I've seen some early intel that there will be deals to be had on  sous vide cookers , which makes a lot of sense considering Prime Day is such a gadgety holiday. I haven't ever cooked sous vide, but if I were going to buy a machine, this is the day I would do it.

Audible Subscription

 I've wanted to try Audible for ages, and  Prime Day subscriptions  are available right now for only $4.95/month for the first three months ($14.95/month after that). This couldn't be better timing for me because I have a road trip coming up and books tend to help me stay a little more alert whilst driving than music does.

The Mom Saves Money Series

Omaha-based blogger Nicole McDonald of MomSavesMoney.net is a smart cookie when it comes to all things home economics, and a friend. Now through Tuesday, she's offering free Kindle downloads of her three books, The Extraordinary Art of Meal Planning, The Extraordinary Art of Budgeting and The Extraordinary Art of Couponing. I've had the meal planning book for a while now -- it's given me tons of inspiration for weeknight dinners -- and I downloaded the budgeting book today.

The below are items that I'm not sure will be included in the Prime Day pricing, but I've had my eye on them forever so keeping everything crossed.

Instax Mini Camera and Film

 I know my girls would absolutely love a  FujiFilm Instax Mini 9 Instant Camera , but I've never been able to justify buying one because I also know they'd eat through the film on the first day and who can afford to replace it? A nice Amazon Prime discount could go a long way toward easing my mind.

Red Clogs

 Sandgrens are handmade Swedish clogs that are about half the price of Hasbeens, but just as well-made and cute. I love the diagonal straps on  this pair  because they're elongating and I think they look a little more elegant than straight horizontal straps. Also, I love that they're in red -- now the angels will want to wear them!

K Beauty Anti-Aging Cream

 I've heard raves about  Saranghae Firm & Lift Cellular Regeneration Cream  and the name alone sounds like everything I've ever wanted. But it's a little above my (sober) impulse online purchase threshold, so  mon visage  and I would love it if Prime Day knocked a few dollars off, please and thanks.

Starter Knives

 The girls are really getting into cooking, which is great, but I keep my knives sharp, sharp, sharp and I'm a little afraid someone's going to lose a digit. I love these beautiful  Opinel knives  for children -- complete with a finger guard and recommended for chefs age 7-12.

Bluetooth Speaker for Outdoors

 We adore our Sonos for inside, but there are plenty of times when we're out and about and we need some music. Voilà, the  Harmon/Kardon Mini Portable Wireless Speaker.  So chic, such crisp sound and under $100 every day of the week.

Aerobic Step

 I'll confess I haven't done step aerobics since college, but I recently came across  this article  in Shape and it made me want to try  a step  for body sculpting.

Junior Ray-Bans

 Did I secretly want to be a French New Wave film director or Left Bank philosopher when I was a 'tween? Maybe. Am I going to try to project that fantasy onto my own children with these  Ray-Ban Junior sunglasses ? Absolument!

Solar Lanterns

 These  handmade solar lanterns  are so beautiful and durable. I long to populate my whole garden with them.

Must-have down jacket

 Much as I hate to think about winter in July, this  Orolay down jacket  has been on my mind since I first saw it  last spring . Everyone says it's super-warm, totally evokes Balenciaga and clocks in at under $100.

Last, but not least, the A1 item on my wish list isn't very glamorous but I've wanted one ever since we moved from New York, and I finally got Brian on board with buying it (after I asked him to build one for me). It is.... a compost tumbler! We've actually done quite a bit of comparison shopping and this model seems to be the best for our needs (durable, user-friendly, hopefully aroma-free). Here's hoping it will cancel out some of the carbon footprint from all of that two-day Prime shipping.
