Christmas Gift Ideas | #GeorgeSecretSanta

"Bleedin heck, is it time to buy Christmas presents again already?!"

You can often hear me exclaiming something of that ilk when this time of year rolls around, seriously I'm usually rubbish at remembering to buy presents for my nearest and dearest any earlier than about a week before the big day.  Terrible, I know!

Anyway this year I feel a little bit more prepared for the festive season thanks to my involvement in a special blogger Secret Santa from George.  The premise was like any other Secret Santa; I'd choose some pressies for a fellow blogger who wouldn't know my identity and another blogger would reciprocate.  With the awesome gift finder from George it was easy as pie finding suitable gifts for the blogger I was assigned and I got some amazingly thoughtful presents in return.  Obviously the advice from the Christmas Elves at Talented Talkers to stalk Instagram, Twitter and blog posts for gift inspiration worked well!  Keep on a-reading to see what I got...

The first item to tumble out of my parcel when it arrived was this fabulously fluffy bathrobe.  Oh how I love a good bathrobe; in the winter I often get home from work, feed both the humans and the felines in the house then get straight into my robe... so comfy and cosy!

Next up I couldn't help but reach for this great little Red Siren gift set from Maybelline.  It contains the Colossal Go Extreme Mascara, Superstay 24 hour Lip in Red Alert and the Superstay Nail Varnish in Deep Red.  I haven't tried any of these products but I'm excited to give them a go for a Christmas party in the near future.

Wrapped up in a parcel, and tied with festive string, were these stylise espresso cups.  My husband Gaz was particularly happy to see these, he's a big fan of a strong coffee on a morning.

The penultimate gifts!  A pair of gloves and a woolly beret to keep me warm over the winter.  Did I mention I hate being cold?  You can see these will come in handy then, and being black and grey, they'll go with everything in my wardrobe too!

If my squeal of delight is anything to go by, I think it's safe to say that the last gift in my parcel was my favourite.  My obsession with Funko Pop! Vinyl Figures is relatively new but well documented on my blog and all over my social media.  I've always felt there was a big Iron Man shaped hole in my collection, so I'm glad to have this little guy take the spot.

So I think you can agree that the gifts I received were pretty perfect for me, and I genuinely hope the person I was assigned has enjoyed their pressies too.

I was pleasantly surprised by the range of gifts on offer with the gift finder from George too, I can definitely see myself taking advantage of this to find presents for my own family.


Look out for more Christmas content coming from me in the next week or so, with perhaps even a few gifts for the men included.  Until next time...
