A Few Gifts I Got For Christmas.

The lovely gifts I received for Christmas…

Christmas isn’t about the gifts, it’s about family and spending quality time with the ones you love. However, I do absolutely love giving gifts. I love receiving them too, am I allowed to say that?! I don’t think there’s anyone who doesn’t! There’s something exciting about unwrapping gifts and also seeing the excitement on other people’s faces when opening their’s. I just love it.

Let’s be honest, we all love having a little nosey at what other people kindly received for Christmas too. So let’s see what I got…

Starting off with foodie bits, one of my main gifts was the Hotel Chocolat Velvetiser in Copper. I love this! At this point, 99% of me is hot chocolate! I’d love to purchase some of the Hotel Chocolat hot chocolates too. You can also grate pure chocolate into this for a super indulgent hot chocolate. I also received the Whittard’s Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate and a few chocolate goodies. Is it even Christmas without getting chocolate?!

A few of the home/lifestyle bits I got include the Neal’s Yard Liv USB Aroma Diffuser with the Peppermint Essential Oil and the De-Stress Aromatherapy Blend. I really want to start creating a calm and relaxing bedtime atmosphere. I’m not a morning person, as you know from my Lumie light post and I’m hoping the peppermint oil can help with this. My lovely Nannie made us a little hamper filled with goodies, including a few kitchen utensils that we needed! Then I was adamant that I wanted to fill our games cupboard, so we got a couple puzzles (including a New York Times Square one!), the 221b Baker Street board game and the Catchphrase board game.

I also got lots of books! ‘The Magpie Society’ by Zoe Sugg and Amy McCulloch, ‘Good Vibes, Good Life’ by Vex King, ‘The Insecure Girl’s Handbook’* {aff link} by Olivia Purvis and ‘Hinch Yourself Happy’ by Mrs Hinch, along with her lists book so I can really get on top of things. I’m keen to start becoming a more motivated and positive person. Which is why I put a few ‘self help’ style books on my wishlist.

Then I had a few clothing bits on my list and one of my main gifts was these gorgeous Nike Air Force 1 Sage Trainers in Pink* {aff link}. I’ve also been after a teddy style coat for a while and I managed to find a shorter style one from ASOS, the Pimkie Teddy Jacket in Ecru* {aff link}. I would like a longer one too, but they all drown me so the search continues! Kieran also got me a pair of the ASOS DESIGN Oversized Joggers* {aff link}. I have been living in these recently, they’re super comfortable.
