We did home made cute gingerbread cookie bears to our relatives. We packed them with some chocolate candies in a tin cans and gave them with crafted cards.
With my bf we did a deal that we won’t buy anything to each other. Instead we decided that we will travel or do something fun together. We haven’t yet decided what it will be but something nice though. 🙂
Do you guys know what happens when you do such a deal? You will still buy something or you feel bad. Two days before Eve I tried to make sure he haven’t bought anything. Well, I figured out that he had still bought me a present… Golf bag with all clubs:
… So I went panic shopping after working 11 hours during 23rd of December. I didn’t want to buy anything expensive because we had made the deal of not buying anything. However I thought it would be rude not to buy a anything. These are what I ended up:
Hilfiger tie, selfie stick, lip balm and two bags of chips (I asked what to buy and he answered a bag of chips haha). 🙂
I bought some hair stuff for myself – new regular and silver shampoos, a dry shampoo spray and some platinum toned color masks.
My employer company gave all the employees little gift’s too. 🙂 This year it was Bluetooth speaker from Sandstrom and candies and some Christmas cookies at work.
Our landlord also remembered us with a bottle of wine. 🙂
One of my bf’s brothers E with his girlfriend gave us home made Christmas basket including sweets, homemade ice cream and a wedding magazine (haha, that’s maybe a bit early!)
During the Christmas Eve I also got all these from my bf’s family and relatives:
– A gift card to Haikko
– body shop set
– key chain rose
– Marimekko by Ratia towel
– Oral B toothbrush
– A bottle of Cecilia Beretta -wine
In addition my bf’s parents had bought us theater tickets so we will all go together to a theater in a week. 🙂
Do you do or buy gifts? Did you get something special this year?
