Favourite Christmas Gifts

Hi All

I was truly spoilt at took the hubby and I ages to open everything and we were thankful for everything that we were bought. Even baby has got a few pressies here for them when they make an appearance! I know that the purpose and meaning of Christmas is not the materialistic element but I thought I'd share some of my favourite gifts. I hope you don't mind, I enjoy looking at what other people received so thought I'd share something of a similar nature!

One of my more technological pressies was a fab camcorder from my hubby. With baby coming along, I really wanted to be able to record just simple videos of them as a child. I have never owned one before so he assures me it is a simple one! I may also have a go at filming and posting some videos on the internet...I hate the sound of my own voice though so they may just be ones with music and least to start with anyway! Here is the camcorder I have been bought, it is super light which is great and I will keep you up to date with how easy it is to use:

Another one of my hobbies is collecting Charlie teddy bears. They are super cute and my Mum bought me a new one for Christmas. He is such a lovely old fashioned style of bear....super cute! My collection is currently sitting on the top of our sofabed in the nursery....I may need to find another storage place! This is the beautiful bear that I received:
Another lovely gift that I received was a stunning five year Jane Austen journal that my mother-in-law bought for me. It has a different quotation from Austen or one of her books on each day and has a small space to write just a small note about the day. I have decided that I am going to turn it into my Gratitude journal, where I write down one thing each day that I am thankful of or that had happened that day which was positive. I have seen lots of people having a go at this and I thought I'd like to try as it is really easy to get bogged down with the negative things on a regular basis! Here it to find a nice pen to go with it....shouldn't be a problem with my obsession with stationery:

I turned 30 this year and so had a 30 before 30 list....some of which were completed! Others I am going to continue to work on during my 30th year! One of them was to purchase a 'designer item.' I had saved quite a bit of money to buy a bag or purse but then baby came along so the money had to be used elsewhere (of course this was a much greater gift than a designer something) but my sister knew that I would still like something designer. So, she surprised me at Christmas with a beautiful Dior Nail Varnish set in such stunning colours. Very excited about using this:

I received some wonderful gifts and there are far too many to give them all justice here but the one that made me cry (yes I'm a hormonal mess lol!) was a gift from my Mum which was a frame with our scan pictures in and the design matches our nursery theme. I will take a piccie at some point as I'd like to do a tour of the nursery for you so will make sure I show you this then!

Those are my top picks. I'm sure that at various times of the year I will end up showing you various of other items that I received! I would love to see and hear about some of your favourite gifts. Leave me a comment and link below if you'd like to share!

Thanks for looking.
