Best done through a simple will--get a local attorney to help you, it shouldn't cost too much and you'd be assured it was done correctly.
When I write a Will, I include the following language: I may prepare a written statement or list (a writing separate from this Will) in order to dispose of certain items of tangible personal property. If I prepare a list, I will sign and date it and it will describe each item so it may be clearly identified and it will also identify the person to receive each item. If no list is found and made known to my personal representative within thirty days after Letters of Administration are issued, it shall be conclusively presumed that no list exists. The list shall take precedence over any contrary disposition of the same item in this Will. I intend that each devise I make in this list shall be considered as a devise under this Will and that the rules of construction applicable to Will devises shall apply to devises in this list.
This is called incorporating by reference language NOT in the will that you request your Executor to follow. It allows you to make changes on your own without the assistance of an attorney, witnesses or a notary. It also allows you to re-write the list as often as you wish without the need to change your Will.
