Hello everyone! How are you all doing? I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas. I had an amazing day with my family and I am so grateful for all the lovely presents I received. I also wanted to say and massive thank you to you all for coming back to my blog every single day to read my blogmas posts. I hope you all enjoyed it. I’m definitely wanting to do it again next year as I had so much fun writing my posts every day for you. For today’s post, I wanted to show you all what I had for Christmas this year. I hope you all enjoy!
This year my Mum wrapped all of my presents in this gorgeous pink paper. They looked so stunning that I didn’t want to unwrap them! It is so me and I loved it so much. My Mum always makes Christmas special for us which I am so grateful for. She is the best!
For my first present, we’ll start with my big main present that I got this year. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing when I opened it. This year, my Mum bought me a 32 inch smart TV for my bedroom. I’d been saving up the money to buy myself one but she had been secretly planning on getting it me for Christmas. I’m incredible grateful for this present and I have been constantly thanking my Mum for it ever since. I actually opened it last with it being the biggest one but I had no idea what could be inside. I couldn’t stop smiling when I opened it. I’m still in disbelief that it’s sat in my bedroom! Mum, again thank you so so much for this present! I love it so much!
Next, I had another charm from Pandora to add to my charm bracelet. I had been asking for the Ariel shell charm for a while now but it is quite an expensive one. So opening it up on Christmas Day to find it was a very big surprise. I put it straight on my bracelet and it goes so well with all my other charms. I love how pretty it is!
Every Christmas, I ask for some sort of fragrance sets. I love getting body mists for Christmas. I had asked for one of the Victoria Secret body mists this year as they smell beautiful. My Mum search everywhere for some kind of gift set but couldn’t find one so she made her own and I love it. She picked out some of my favourite scents. I got the Victoria Secret body mists in the scent Coconut Passion and Love Spell. But what I didn’t know was that she had also bought my favourite Ariana Grande perfume in a body mist too. Now that was a complete surprise and I was thrilled with it. I decided that with it being Christmas, I would try the coconut body mist first. And it smelt gorgeous so I am very happy with these!
In with my Mum’s presents, we had my present from my little brother Oscar. Oscar knows pretty much everything I like and to be fair, he likes the same things as me (probably more for the fact that he’s with me all the time and can’t get away from it. Oops!) But he knows my favourite band is The Vamps and he has come to two of their concerts with me and likes them too. So this year, he got me The Vamps’ 2021 calendar. I was not expecting it even though for the past two years I have had their calendar! I can’t wait to put it up in my room. Thank you for my present Ozzy! 😊
Going back to the presents from my Mum now, she got me a gorgeous fluffy pink rug for my bedroom. I’d been asking for a fluffy rug for my bedroom pretty much since we moved in February. It goes perfectly with my rose gold and white bedroom and I just love it. you have never felt something so fluffy! It is gorgeous!
Another bedroom decor present my Mum got me for Christmas is an S light. It is so pretty, I love it. It is so cute and goes so well with my bedroom. I currently have it on my window sill and I have it on every single night. It brings lovely little cosy vibes to my bedroom. I love the S is silver with fairy lights wrapped all the way around it. It is so beautiful.
Every year my Mum gets me a board game for Christmas which we then play after we’ve had our Christmas dinner. We are obsessed with BBC’s The Wall and we watch it all the time. So this year, my Mum got me The Wall board game. We played it on Christmas Day and it was AMAZING! It works just like the TV show and it is so much fun. You drop the balls down the wall and you have your own contracts. Honestly, if you haven’t watched this game show before, I am telling you now you need to watch it. It is great!
I had told my Mum that I needed to get a new toiletry bag so this year she treated me to one. I saw this Disney Mickey and Minnie Mouse toiletry bag in Primark a while ago and had previously mentioned it to her how I was thinking of getting it. But she ended up surprising me with it as a present. I love it. It comes with two bags which is great and there is so much space for all of my things.
The final present from my Mum this year was a shared present between Oscar and I. Now, last year we were incredibly lucky to have got a Nintendo Switch between us so this year we had a game between us. It is the brand new Super Mario game called Mario 3D All Stars. It comes with three of its old games: Super Mario 64, Mario Sunshine and Mario Galaxy. Growing up I had a Nintendo Wii and then had the Wii U when it came out. My two favourite games were Mario Kart (which still is by far my favourite game ever) and Mario Galaxy. I’m so excited that I can now play it on the switch! I can’t wait to play on it!
Moving onto my Grandma and Grandad now. These presents were a complete shock to me and at one point I had to stop myself from crying my eyes out! So we’ll start with a present which I was so excited for and had been planning on getting myself really soon. It was actually included in my Christmas Wish list post and that is the River Island handbag. It is even better than I can remember it. It has so much space inside it. It actually has two compartments with two separate zips which is so nice. And the grey of it is just so stunning. I can’t wait to use it.
Now for the big thing. I kid you not when I say I nearly cried. My Grandma and Grandad gave me £100 for driving lessons. I turned 17 in September which meant I can obviously start learning to drive. But being so busy this term with college and with driving lessons not being on, I haven’t got round to actually booking them in. So as a starting point, my Grandma and Grandad gave me £100 to book in so many lessons. I am incredibly grateful for this. They are so amazing and I am still so surprised that they gave me this! Thank you so so much!
My other Nana and Grandad got me some chocolate this year and also gave me some money for me to treat myself to something I like. I was so thankful for this and know I will be saving this money for something really nice.
My Auntie Lucy and Uncle Johnathan got me so many nice things this year. I couldn’t believe they got me The Vamps’ latest CD Cherry Blossom. I have had it on repeat since and just love it. They know how I am a massive fan so treated me to it. I love this present.
I also got a set of bath bombs from them too. They smell so nice and I can’t wait to use them. The second I took the wrapping paper off, this gorgeous smell filled the living room.
They also got me some makeup which is such a lovely present too. I’ve added them to the rest of my makeup collection.
And finally, from the rest of my family, I was lucky enough to get some money this Christmas. I will be saving this now to treat myself to something soon. I am so grateful to have been given some money to treat myself to something nice.
I hope you all enjoyed reading today’s post. What was your favourite present you got for Christmas this year? In no way did I want to brag about the things I got this year.
