What I Received for Christmas 2018

I’m really excited to share with you today, what I received for Christmas, now I don’t want this to be a ‘show off’ post. I want it to be a reflection of my Christmas and thankful for what I received. I hope you all had a lovely Christmas! Mine was lovely, spending it with Yasmine’s family in Plymouth.

There was a good mixture of receiving money and gifts, I swear as you get older it’s harder for gifts. I really struggled last year, when I was creating my lists I wanted to include items that I needed rather than wanting just for the hell of it. With that in mind, I think this list is a good reflection of that.

Enough chit-chat, let’s get started:

Dot Creates ‘I can do this’ Planner | For the past two years, I have used the Dot Creates ‘I can do this’ Planner to help me stay organised with my blog. This planner has been a lifesaver! For 2019, I needed a new one, I’m soo thankful to Yasmine listening and buying this. Now I can get organised for 2019 to be stronger than 2018.

DC Comics Wall Calendar 2019 | I still love having a Wall Calendar! I know our phones have a calendar but sometimes it’s good to have a calendar right in front of you to quickly understand dates. This year I’ve gone for a DC Comics calendar, there are so many different calendars, normally takes me forever to choose.

Zoella Lifestyle A Year to Cheer Desk Calendar | Having a Desk Calendar is perfect at work! I love having it there on my desk so I can easily see it when planning future meetings and just working days out. Also, it brightens up my desk, especially a colourful one like this one.

The Unknown Kimi Raikkonen | I’m sure you know how much I adore Formula 1, I also adore reading biographies. I was soo pleased when Kimi Raikkonen released The Unknown, this just had to go onto my Christmas wishlist! Once I started reading, I couldn’t stop, I fell in love with this book, so much that it featured on my December Favourites.

Assassin’s Creed Odyssey | Finally! I have got my hands on Assassin’s Creed Odyssey! I am so happy and I cannot wait to start playing, also the statue is amazing. It’s soo beautiful and it’s the best statue I have currently on my shelf. Each time an Assassin’s Creed has come out, I have purchased it with the game. I’ve heard amazing things about this one, especially since it’s set in Greece.

Ant-Man 2pk DVD | Just like DC Comics I adore Marvel Comics, this year’s DVD choice was Ant-Man but the two pack to feature Ant-Man and the Wasp. I fell in love with both of these movies! A very different character from other Marvel characters but I adore this movie, especially Paul Rudd he is great as Scott Lang. Now I can binge watch both movies!

Lilo & Stitch ‘Catch the Wave’ | I love Lilo & Stitch, primarily Stitch, he’s adorable and I’ve loved him since I watched the first movie. I was amazed when I opened this ‘Catch the WaveDisney Traditions! It’s amazing and soo big, it looks amazing on my shelf and it’s the first of many I’ll be getting, especially of Stitch.

Starbucks Gift Pack | I adore Starbucks, since moving to Aylesbury I have really missed Starbucks as the closest is about 30 minutes away! I always try to go into one if I pass it while travelling, recently I saw this gorgeous Gift Pack which you can customise yourself. Inside the mine, I have a cute Snowman Mug, Peppermint Candy Cane Chocolate Bar, Christmas Blend and Toffeenut Flavour Syrup.

Chocolate | It wouldn’t be Christmas without chocolate! I received just a small amount of chocolate, everyone knows how much I adore this so there’s no surprise that I received some. I received some good old-fashioned classics such as a Reindeer, Sprouts and Coins. Just over two weeks since Christmas and I’ve still got at least half left!

Thank-you for reading! What’s one thing you loved receiving this Christmas?
