What I Got For Christmas

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

Chocolate Coins

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

Slipper Boots

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.

  1. Such great presents! I love how everyone got you presents that are “Danni.” 🙂 They have such great gifts! And I laughed when I read that your partner got you PJ’s of your own, so you would stop stealing his. To funny.
    Also that coat is divine and I find it funny that they don’t sell Philosophy as much in the UK anymore. I LOVE Philosophy. And Christmas Cookie is one of my favorite scents! I am glad you had such a great holiday beauty! ❤

      1. I’ve been only having chocolate once or twice a week in small portions, so I’ve nearly eaten one foodie gift😂 It is a great set. So many good brands😊 xx


    1. 😂 very well stocked. For Valentine’s Day I told my partner to get me only 2 or 3 gifts, some gym bits etc as I have a huge stock of beauty stuff! I haven’t tried it yet! I didn’t open anything as I wanted to get photos first. Aaw thank you. They are super cute x


  3. How does the hot chocolate stirring spoon work? The 5pk of socks and the Disney makeup bag are so girly and cute! Impulse Tease smells so good btw 😊 The Philosophy shower gels sounds divine. The mascara set looks awesome.as does the Tarte palette xx

    1. You warm up milk (soya milk for me) and then stir the chocolate spoon into the milk. It melts and makes hot chocolate☺ My mum got me some really cute and girly bits. I love Impulse and now I don’t need to buy any for a long time😊 The shower gels smell so good💕 The mascara set and Tarte palette look great, so I can’t wait to start using stuff. Xx

  4. It really does feel like Christmas was months ago! It’s only been over 3 weeks… 😮

    The Tigger Pyjamas set is adorable! Did you give your brother some guidance?

    Wow look at all the LUSH products lined up like that! I bet it smells amazing in that area. 😆 I keep mine in my clothing drawers so they make my clothes smell nice!

    I was tempted to buy one of the Philosophy shower gel after Christmas as they were discounted – but the bottles were all sealed and I couldn’t smell what scent they were.

    Ooh the Tartelette Flirt palette is the one I don’t have – I might pick it up eventually. Such good quality and so compact for travelling!

    Enjoy all your goodies! 😀

    1. I know it feels a lot longer ago! It is really sweet😊 I don’t. My mum takes him out and he chooses himself. He told her once no you can’t get those pyjamas as she has similar! He’s funny😊 Haha I laid them out for photos, but they’re in a bag in my room so it smells great! 😂 that’s a great idea! Oh no. I have tried a few of the shower gels in the past so I kind of knew what I liked, but Macy’s had testers. It does look like a pretty palette and great for travel. I’ve started trying more Tarte products lately and I’ve liked them all☺ Thank you😊 x
