When it comes time to make our wish list every year, we all tend to edit ourselves a bit. We're not monsters, so we take into account the fact that our loved ones aren't billionaires. Mom and Dad just can't afford you buy you that $1,700 espresso maker that would make your life infinitely better, so instead you ask for a $50 coffee maker and drink your sad, lesser coffee every day for the rest of your compromise-filled life.

But imagine a world in which you could ask for WHATEVER YOU WANT. We asked our readers to do just that, and they shared their ultimate hope-and-dream-filled wish lists with us. Below, you'll find the most popular of their answers, ranging from a $200 pasta-making attachment to a $6,000 kitchen appliance. Follow along as we dream all the wish list dreams.

(All prices listed are the retail value.)
