What will Santa bring me?

ALL she wants for Christmas is a Nintendo Wii.

With only 18 sleeps until the big day, Rockhampton news presenter Lisa Benoit has her fingers crossed her Christmas wish will come true.

After Hollywood celebrity’s revealed their Christmas wish lists, The Morning Bulletin recently caught up with Lisa as she was doing her Christmas shopping.

While the 22-year-old usually gets a mixed bag of smaller presents, this year she is opting for the popular Nintendo Wii.

“I’ve asked my close family too all put in for one big present this year,” Lisa said.

Ninemsn recently reported what some of our big celebs are asking for.

While singing sensation Rihanna asked for “some great food”, Twilight stunner Robert Pattinson has the entire Criterion DVD collection on the top of his wish list.

Meanwhile, yummy daddy Brad Pitt said they kept spending to a minimum and the rule was everyone shared in the spirit of Christmas by making special something for someone else.

Teen sensation Miley Cyrus got an early Christmas present from her mum.

She has been given her mum’s old car, a Porsche.

Lisa, who is a journalist and news presenter for Sea and Hot FM, said besides a Wii, other gifts to top her list were a pair of gold diamond earrings, some new Disney movies to add to her collection and a cocktail set.

“I hope I get a Wii, my old Nintendo needs an upgrade,” Lisa said.

Harvey Norman franchisee Gus Romero said they were selling the Wii for $347. It came with the new Wii Mario Brothers, Wii Sports and Sonic games.

Last year he said they were such a hit, they sold out four days before Christmas and this year they were already selling fast.

“I don’t encourage shoppers to leave it until the last minute,” Mr Romero said.
