What Gifts Did I Get For Christmas?: Christmas 2020 in Lockdown

January 2, 2021

Hey guys! I hope you all have had the most lovely Christmas and new year! 2020 has been an odd year, mostly full of tough times, but hey, we got through it. How did you find Christmas 2020 in Lockdown? Anyway, like I do every year (check out What Gifts I Got For Christmas 2019 here), here are the presents I received this Christmas! You never know, this could help for next years Christmas gift ideas! Disclaimer, as usual, I am not bragging – I know times are difficult, especially right now, I just love these posts that’s all. So here we have it!

Considering this year as well, I am not going to disclose who gave what – mainly because gift giving and circumstances this year have been different, in addition to the fact that I have not received all my presents yet.

Yankee Candle in Soft Cotton – The most dependable scent I have ever tried

winter drinks christmas gifts

home and interior christmas gifts

Mrs Hinch Memoir – Yes I am a fangirl, and yes I am going to pretend I am not. For anyone who doesn’t know who she is, she is a influencer who posts all things home and cleaning

Batman Print – This was such a thoughtful gift, and one that will definitely find a permanent in my Dad’s office, what a great twist on a traditional family picture!

Initial Necklace – My last one has began to rust, so I had actually asked for this. It is the perfect length and I am so happy!

jewellery christmas gifts


neck massager christmas gifts

Neck and Shoulder Massager – This is one of those presents that you will never buy for yourself, but you become glad it has arrived. I am currently working a labour-intensive job while I wait for Covid to clear up and I can get a graduate scheme. I must had been mentioning my shoulder pain too much because I got this. The perfect massager – it causes pain before it gets better but you really do feel the benefits. Oh and it can heat up! The ideal gift. Check out the Naipo Shoulder Massager here.

Surprise Item – Shark Hoover

shark hoover christmas gifts

Now this I did not expect. I received this present after all the others, as it was left in the car. Before this, I currently had 4, yes 4, hoovers, all for different things. Now I can say I have one half the weight and working better than all my others combined. A surprise that most definitely paid off – what is life without a Shark hoover eh?

How was Christmas 2020 in Lockdown for you? What was the best thing you received?

    It looks like you did quite well in the present department this year! My partner and I decided to forego our usual gift giving this year since between the two of us we lost 20 months of work out of the 24 due to the pandemic. Instead we decided just to get ourselves some things we really needed around the house like new pans. All in all it was a pretty good Christmas considering!

      I think that was a brilliant idea! This year has definitely been tough – my Mum and Dad both got financially cut off so we have decided to postpone Christmas until we are in a better position. Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts and reading!

    Looks like you got some great gifts! We have a Shark vacuum, an older model than the one you received, and LOVE it! We’ve had it for 4 years now and it’s held it’s own against our pack (2 dogs and 2 cats) which says a lot! lol
