Blogmas Day Nine: Friendsmas

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day Nine! I can’t believe there’s only three days left of Blogmas, it’s just flown by. Today I’m going to be talking about Friendsmas. I exchanged gifts with one of my longtime friends recently, like we’ve been doing for years and it was great. I think we both nailed it this year.

So, starting off with what I got her, I went for a theme this year, and if you read my present wrapping post, then you saw me talking about some of these presents and my thought behind how I wrapped them and if you haven’t read that post I’ll link it below. Like I said, I went with a theme, it was cozy, and I think everything went together nicely.

For the stocking it took me forever to find one that I liked, but I ended up picking this one and I think it’s perfect. The material is kind of shiny, it has the fur on the top and it says It’s The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year. And I filled it with five beauty bits. When it came to the stocking I didn’t want to do candy and I didn’t know how candy would ship, so I went with beauty products because when I’m having a cozy night in I like to pamper myself. So there’s a nail polish, face mask, pore strips and a couple of hair treatments.

For the main presents, the big package is a super soft blanket, the red box is a box of tea that she likes and the long blue package is a bookmark. I found this amazing shop on Etsy that makes bookmarks and they are incredible. It’s called The Burlap Butterfly and there are bookmarks for so many different fandoms, they’re so well done and I highly recommend them. I posted a picture of a Harry Potter bookmark I bought myself on my Instagram, if you want to see what they look like.

For the gifts she bought me, I gave her some ideas of things that I wanted but I didn’t know what to expect. We definitely don’t tell each other what we’ve bought in the run up to the opening of the gifts. But she did very well. And it’s not pictured here, but there was a little note in the box as well.

I’ve mentioned before that I really like adult coloring books, I’m a pretty creative person so I enjoy that aspect of it and I also find it to be relaxing. And this one is great because giraffes are my favorite animal.

The other thing she got me was a set of stemless wine glasses. But these aren’t normal wine glasses, they have a Harry Potter theme. The first one says Accio Wine! And the other says I Solemnly Swear That I Am Up To No Good.

That about wraps it up for this post, if you guys hosted or attended any Friendsmas parties I hope you had a great time.

Blogmas Day 21: Friendsmas

Hi everyone,

Welcome to Blogmas Day 21! Earlier today I hosted Friendsmas with a good friend of mine. She and I have been friends for almost a decade and always have a fun time exchanging gifts. This year we must have had a similar thought process, because we ended up getting each other similar gifts.

Starting with her stocking, I put in a mix of chocolate and fruity candies. There was mini Kit Kats, little cookies and cream candies, white chocolate Twix and Mamba fruit chews. I also put in a hair mask and a face mask.

Gift wise, only one of her gifts came in time, the other is supposed to be here right after Christmas. But that can happen when you have something custom made. I had both custom made, by different companies, and I ordered them at way different times. But the one I gave her today is a quote that we both love and I framed it. I don’t have a picture, but if you guys read my Present Wrapping post, then you saw me wrap it. And of course I topped it all off with a Christmas card.

Moving on to what she got me, starting with the stocking, I tend to go for fruity candy more than chocolate so she put in Skittles and Starburst, which are two of my favorites.

Gift wise, she was rather creative. She had asked me for quotes or phrases that I thought represented our friendship, I thought of four or five and sent them off and she chose four or five of her own and she turned it into a collage. I think it was a great idea and I love the quotes and phrases she chose. There’s Golden Girls, Friends and Dan and Phil.

That about wraps it up for this post, if any of you guys hosted or attended Friendsmas I hope you had a great time and a lot of laughs.

Until next time, I hope you guys are enjoying Blogmas and I can’t believe there’s only four days until Christmas :).
