Emma Aiston's inspired Christmas wishlist!

We're wrapping up our 2011 Christmas wishlist series today with a little double feature! Adelaide design duo Emma Aiston and Daniel To have each contributed their top 5 most coveted items this festival season.  Not surprisingly for these extremely cool cats, each list is so succinct and brilliantly edited - presenting the perfect balance of cool / quirky and slightly silly.  Cool and quirky is, after all, their speciality. ;)

We've loved the incredible variety of wishlists this year and so I'd love to say a big thanks to all who have contributed!  From Kirra Jamison's epic round-up to Brendan McKnight's 'not-particularly-blokey' shortlist, and Megan Morton's inspired eccentricities yesterday - I think we've covered all bases!

Massive thanks to Daniel and Emma for sharing these inspired finds with us!  AND psssst. Daniel, I really hope you got Emma those shoes....!
