What I Got For Christmas 2017

I hope you all had an amazing Christmas, I can't believe it's all over! I'm feeling really refreshed after taking a break and spending time with family! I personally love reading 'What I Got For Christmas' blog posts, so I thought I'd show you what I got. Of course, this post comes with the usual disclaimer, I am extremely grateful for all the thoughtful presents I received and this post is not intended to be braggy!


My main gift from my Mum and Dad was some money and some Euros. As I'm off to Disneyland Paris in March so the Euros will be really helpful! I spent a little bit of the money I received from my parents and family members in the Boxing Day sales. I stocked up on perfume sets so I have enough to last me through the year.

They also got gifted me a Chloe perfume set, as they know this is my signature scent. I've lost count how many bottles I've been through! My sister gave me the new Sam Smith album and a lovely Zodiac mug from Marks and Spencers which has the most stunning gold detailing on it.

My boyfriend likes to think of his own presents for me instead of asking for hints, which is lovely! I'm always excited to see what he has thought of! This year he bought me a Pandora bracelet and two charms to put on it. The first charm was a dainty Eiffel Tower to mark our first trip away together to Paris last January. The second was a snowflake to represent where we are heading next, Iceland! This was such a thoughtful gift and every time I wear it, it makes me smile.

He also bought me some cute extras like sloth pyjamas and a sloth mug, as I'm obsessed with sloths! For last year's Christmas present he adopted a sloth for me at Chester Zoo which was amazing. He also gifted me a Blogger Journal from Paperchase, which I've already started to put to good use.


My wonderful friends bought me lots of cute gifts that I love! My best friend Alex got me the Aldi Jo Malone candle dupes, which came in a set of 3 containing Lime, Basil and Mandarin, Pomegranate and Blackberry and Bay. I'd also mentioned that I loved the Gingerbread Hot Chocolate in Cafe Nero so she picked me up a mini Monin Gingerbread Syrup so I can make them at home. She also popped a few Yankee candle minis and the most adorable cat mug in the gift bag. Lastly, she bought me the L'Occitane Almond Shower Gel, which is very luxurious!

One of my close friends, Ami bought me the Sleek Makeup Sleek Surprises Smoke and Mirrors gift set, which contains an eyeshadow palette, mascara and two eyeliners. There was also some bath time treats in the form of a glittery diamond shaped bath bomb and a Body Shop Shea Butter Soap.

My friend Sue bought me some a My Fragrance My Way mini perfume set. It has fragrance combinations to try on the back of the packaging which I thought was a lovely way to customise your scent. I also received a bottle of Chambord which will come in handy for New Year's eve as I love to mix it into champagne or prosecco.

I am extremely grateful for all the presents I received, I'm overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness! What was your favourite gift you received or gifted to someone this year?
