Christmas Presents

what i got for christmas, christmas presents

This is my last Christmas blog post until next year and to round it up, I wanted to show you some of the presents I got this year. This isn't everything I got this year, I just wanted to share with you a few bits that I received. I hear that some people dislike these sort of posts but I personally love to see what other people have received for Christmas or Birthdays, especially if they're cute products! I'm also not good with gift buying and it sometimes gives me ideas...mainly on what to buy for myself next time I go shopping!

I don't make a wish list and I didn't ask for anything in particular this year - I usually get money instead of presents. My parents made us a wish list this year which consisted of fluffy slippers, thermal socks and a compilation CD and it made it a lot easier to buy presents they would actually use!

The only thing I did ask for was Cheryl's book and my little sis bought it for me(Yay!). I've been reading it and I love it! All the gifts I got was fun and very "me". It's not pictured above but I also got an inflatable bath pillow from Body Shop which is amazing!

My granny bought me and my sisters some Christmas socks which was the sweetest thing and I am most excited about the Nando's chip sprinkle which came in a set that my sister bought me! I bought most of my gifts from dotcomgiftshop (they're having a winter sale at the moment!) and Debenhams this year. This wasn't before I whizzed around buying things for myself which were meant to be for other people. Panic struck a few days before last post and I did most of my Christmas shopping online.

I have thoroughly enjoyed reading what you all got up to during the Christmas break, in particular Rose (from the blog, The Londoner) and Winnie from Diamond Canopy blog. Kristabel's festive post was awesome too. I've also been reading a lot of blog posts on what you have received in your Christmas stockings too, and it looks like Santa has been good to you too!

    My family doesn't celebrate Xmas and there's not much Xmas cheer here in general. I do miss the UK.
    Have a lovely NYE!
