*I’m not trying to brag. I genuinely like reading/watching these kinds of posts/videos, so I thought I would do my own!
Maybe I’m late to the game. Most of the youtubers I watch and blogs I read have done their “What I Got For Christmas” posts already. But better late than never! Right?!?!
My family spoiled me this year. These are some of the things I got from my parents, brother and sister-in-law, and husband.
If you didn’t know, I’m a writer. Aside from this blog, I write children’s fiction and short stories. So you better believe my annual Christmas lists includes books! I’ve already read the middle book (very Edgar Allen Poe inspired), and can’t wait to read the other two! A family saga about witches and a mysterious middle grade fiction; right up my alley!
Fact: I’m part ten-year-old boy at heart and always will be! So Legos. Specifically, Harry Potter Legos. When I saw that they were releasing new Harry Potter Legos (probably because of the Fantastic Beasts franchise), I put these at the top of my list. I mean, look at it, ain’t she a beaut? Going to have so much fun putting this together!
Question: Is it really even Christmas without new pajamas? Growing up, my brother and I received new pajamas each Christmas. This year, I got two new pairs from Soma in their Cooler Night range. Check out the snow globe print on those bottoms, so magical! I’ve worn these already and they’re so comfortable.
My family knows I’m a bit of a beauty product junkie. And they indulge me! The MOA bath potion and the Nuxe lip balm are restocks for me, and I’m so glad I got them! Both are great products. I’m also excited to try the skincare and haircare products.
I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again. I love a good bath. These bath oils from Kneipp are good baths in a bottle. I’ve tried the Valerian and Hops one before and it is the most relaxing bath. The consistency of these oils are less oily and slight more watery, which is nice if you don’t like your skin to feel oily. The scents are calming and therapeutic.
Let’s just say my husband outdid himself this year. I’d been wanting a ring to wear on my pinky for a while. I knew I wanted a darker stone and a solitaire style. Imagine my surprise when I found this amethyst ring in my stocking! Its so beautiful and the amethyst is very high quality. I’ve been wearing it ever since!
How are about you? What did you get for Christmas? Any wonderful surprises? Useful gifts? Ones that made you cringe?
