Blogmas 2018 Day 7: The Bloggers Secret Santa Experience

by - 23 December

For day 7 of Blogmas, I'm going to be showing you what I received from the Bloggers Secret Santa I was a part of this year. Before I start I just want to thank Casey from casestreetx for planning it and organising it all. You should definitely go check her blog out and give her some love. I've loved being a part of it and I am definitely going to be participating if she does it again next year. 
 Above you can see the items I received. I got a super cute unicorn hot water bottle, a Yankee Candle in Strawberry Buttercream and a book called 642 Tiny Things To Write About.

We used a website called Elfster which is where we were matched together and on Elfster there was a section to add items to your 'wishlist' so that the Blogger you were paired with could see what sort of items you were interested in and vice versa. The candle I received was one I added to my wishlist and I must have added a bunch of unicorn items because a couple of people in the group chat mentioned that I must be obsessed with unicorns, which is clearly true and did make me laugh quite a bit.
   I'm super happy with the candle I received as it is one of my favourite Yankee Candle scents. It smells absolutely gorgeous. It smells a little like vanilla which is also one of my favourite scents in general and my parents thought so too as I gave them a blind smell test of it.
The book was a lovely choice and I can't wait to start using it! Like the title implies it has 642 tiny things to write about such as 'Think of your worst rejection. Write a thank-you note to the person who rejected you' and 'You made the first machine that turns water in gold. You've got one minute to pitch investors on what your machine is. Go.' The very first one in the book is 'Write yesterday's fortune cookie. It got everything wrong'. It will definitely help spur my creativity when I need some inspiration and was definitely a great choice for a gift.
    The unicorn hot water bottle is so so cute. I'd been wanting another hot water bottle for a while now and this one is literally me in a nutshell. It's a unicorn for starters and secondly, it's in pastel rainbow colours which are my fave and the type of thing I'm drawn to the most. It's very soft and cosy and I am very excited to use it on cold nights.

Overall I think my Secret Santa did a great job and clearly knows me well from what I posted on my wishlist and what I generally post online. I'm very happy with everything and I want to say thank you to her, so thank you Secret Santa if you are reading this!

If you want to potentially take part in next years Secret Santa then you should definitely follow Casey on Twitter and let her know. You can also read her Secret Santa blog post HERE.

Let me know in the comments below the best and worst gift you have ever received from a Secret Santa or if you have never done one then any gift in general.
