Hey guys, hope you are having a wonderful summer! I love these sort of posts, I mean we all love to be a little nosey right? Here’s what I received for my 20th this year (as always, I have no intention of bragging or boasting, I just want to write posts that you enjoy reading).
From my Parents:
Although not a regular gift to receive from anyone on your birthday, my parents made me a hamper full of cleaning products – filled with Zoflora, Mr Sheen, a broom and the handy Shake n Vac. As I said, odd for some, but for me, incredibly thoughtful.
- Apple Pie Macaroons
- Cookies and Cream Wafers
- 0 Calorie Vanilla Syrup as a sugar substitute (I am pre-diabetic so thoughtful nonetheless)
I love GANT as a brand, and already have 2 sweatshirts which I adore. So when I received this t-shirt I was so happy that my parents had remembered.
Revlon Quick Dry Hairdryer
This is more of a joke because my Mum and Boyfriend absolutely hate using my hairdryer (I have had it since I was 5), since it overheats and has this horrible burning smell. It was something I never got around to replacing, especially as I never used it (for obvious reasons) and that it still worked. But maybe receiving this was a sign that it needed replacing.
Guess Solar Watch
This was my main present, although my parents always insisted on getting me a watch for my 21st, we are going on holiday next year, so the watch got pushed forward a year. After weeks of looking, I finally found the watch I wanted, and my Dad surprised me with it a week before my birthday.
On my birthday, we all went for a fancy dinner – definitely unexpected but the food was so good ahhh.
From my Boyfriend:
I am pretty sure Lewis was counting down the days to my birthday purely because he didn’t want to keep it a secret any longer, and I am so glad. To be honest, I was just happy with the card, it was perfectly thoughtful. The first present I opened was a photo frame with 3 photos of me and my parents and one of me and the other half. What was so sweet was the present idea came about when months and months ago I made a throw away comment about not having any personal items in my room – and there you have it. Lewis also got in touch with my Dad to get access to the photos, which was so so sweet. I also got gig tickets to one of my favourite bands, Mallory Knox in Leicester which I was completely about – I thought he completely ignored me when I mentioned it months ago.
Lewis and my Dad also treated me and my Mum to lunch at Heavenly Desserts – which was really needed on the hot day it was.
From my Flatmate Katie I received a pamper pack with face masks, pore strips, and reed diffusers (Strawberry and Red Fruits / Fresh Cotton and Lily) – absolutely perfect for the stresses of third year!
I was lucky enough to receive quite a bit of money from my loved ones, which I am incredibly grateful for. Here’s how I spent some of the money.
From the money I received from my Boyfriends Family I got a purse that matched my watch – unintentional of course. It just felt right to update it after having a Primark purse for 7 years!
Nothing like an impulse buy! The material just felt so good, perfect for lounging around!
Calvin… need I say more?
I am more than grateful for everything I received this year, it was all just so unexpected, but the thoughtfulness of every gift really made it special!
