I can’t believe we’re already halfway through January, time is just flying! Christmas already feels like it was quite some time ago, but I thought I’d still share with you what presents I got.
Money from my Mum, Dad and Grandad
I was given money from my parents and my grandad, which I’ve yet to spend. I’m saving it to buy some new clothes.
Also from my Mum
Hot Chocolate Stirring Spoon
Winter Whimsy Hot Chocolate Mixes
Milk Chocolate Pebbles The Penguin
Essence The Gel Nail Polish in So Blue, So True
Five Pack of Socks
Beauty and the Beast Makeup Bag
From my Brother Tigger Pyjama Set
I love receiving new pyjamas, so every year for my birthday and Christmas, my little brother chooses me a new set.
From my Cousin
Freixenet Cordon Rosado Wine
Clinique Pep-ify Me Set
My cousin got me a mini bottle of wine and a Clinique set with some interesting products I’ve never tried before.
From my Aunt
My aunt got me an Impulse body spray set, which came inside a glitter ball!
From my Partner
A Box of Lush Goodies
As I’m a huge Lush fan, my partner got me the following:
Lush Snow Fairy Jelly Bomb, Luxury Lush Pud Bath Bomb, Sherbet Dip Bath Bomb, Shoot For The Stars Bath Bomb, The Comforter Bubble Bar, The Snowman Bubble Bar, Star Light Star Bright Bath Melt
Lush Santa Baby and Sugar Plum Fairy Lip Scrubs
Lush Santa’s Belly Shower Jelly
Lush Snow Fairy Shower Gel
And some Zoella bits:
Zoella I’m Dreaming Of A Bath Filled With Bubbles!
Zoella Treasure Me Gift Set
Zoella Brew Me a Bath Set
I’ve always enjoyed Zoella’s ranges that she’s launched, so I was excited to get some of her Christmas collection.
Philosophy Cinnamon Buns and Christmas Cookie Shower Gels
You don’t see Philosophy’s shower gels sold in UK stores much anymore, so I was delighted to see Macy’s in New York had a big section. Both of these smell good enough to eat.
Konjac Mini Facial Sponge and Pore Refiner
I’ve seen Konjac Sponges mentioned a lot and now I finally have my own, which came in the cutest packaging! It helps to exfoliate and cleanse skin.
Silke London Hair Wrap
As my hair’s got longer, it’s become more knotty and I get more fly-aways. This hair wrap promises smoother, shiny, frizz-free hair. It also claims to reduce split ends and extend wash time.
Stila Magnificent Metals Glitter & Glow Eyeshadows in Diamond Dust, Gold Goddess and Sea Siren
Stila’s Magnificent Metals are one of my absolute favourite makeup products. Diamond Dust is a replacement as I finished my first tube a while back and the other two shades are ones that I’ve never tried before.
Violett Voss Glitter in Venus
I love loose eye glitters, so my partner got me this gorgeous holographic one from Violett Voss.
Sephora Favourites Lash Stash
My partner picked this up for me whilst we was in New York and it looks like such an amazing set. It features a tonne of mascaras that I can’t wait to try and a set of false lashes.
Tarte Tartelette Flirt Palette
Tarte Lights, Camera, Lashes Mascara
All of the Tarte products that I’ve tried so far I’ve really loved, so I’m excited to try these out.
Dolce & Gabbana The One Rollerball Perfume
Another gift purchased in New York. This is one of my favourite perfumes and as it’s in rollerball form, it’s great for taking away with me or popping in my bag.
Asda ‘Boy’ Pyjamas
A year or so ago, I bought my partner a set of pyjamas similar to these ones and I always steal them to wear. So he finally got me my own fleecy set of mens pyjamas.
River Island Coat
This coat is different to my usual style, but I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it! It’s a gorgeous colour and so cute and cosy.
Debenhams Milk Chocolate & Toffee Popcorn Jar
My partner’s bought me a jar of this popcorn each Christmas for the last three or four years as I always go on about it. It tastes so good that it never lasts until January!
Cadbury Chocolate Slab
Whenever we visit Birmingham, we always make sure to visit Cadbury World and it’s amazing shop. The chocolate tastes extra creamy and fresh and you can see slabs like this being decorated on-site.
Whimsical Cake Company Santa’s Milk and Cookies
The Whimsical Cake Company always do the cutest biscuits. These looked and tasted amazing.
From my Partner’s Parents
Lush Gift Voucher
Kexin Candle Art
My partner’s parents kindly got me a Lush voucher, as they know it’s one of my favourite shops, as well as new slipper boots and a cute candle holder.
From my Partner’s Brother and His Wife
Next Gift Voucher
Soap & Glory Full Sparks Set
French Connection Luxurious Skin Set
My partner’s brother and his wife got me some lovely gifts. I’ve never tried any French Connection products before so I’m looking forward to trying them out.
I love Soap & Glory and I’m saving the Next voucher to put towards a new makeup brush or two, as Next’s ones are good quality.
Let me know what your favourite gifts are.
