Christmas Blogger Gift Swap

I got very excited this week when a parcel arrived with 3 wrapped presents inside. Why? Because I knew they were off Sarah from A Shimmer of Sparkle, who was my partner in the Blogger Gift Swap I took part in. You can see what the gift swap is all about in my previous post here.

Sarah and I spoke about setting a budget, or even a theme between us and set a simple budget of £5. So heres what I got: 

How cute is this wrapping paper?! 

First of all, Dairy Milk Buttons, if you've somehow gone through life without having these chocolate buttons you are missing out, big time!
Next up is a small ball, inside is White Lily & Sweet Rose scented Bath Caviar and Pearls. I haven't gotten round to using them yet but my gosh they smell incredible so I can't wait to have a hot bubble bath with them. 
Finally, is my little red spotted tin, inside the tin is a candle. I'm not so sure on the exact scent of the candle but it smells fantastically festive, perhaps a bit of spiced apple and cinnamon! This one has been lit already along side all the candles in my room. 

This has been such a wonderful thing to take part in, just a little bit different and also a great way to find new blogs. Look out on twitter for the tag #apovgiftswap to see what everyone got.

Merry Christmas everyone!


  1. Lovely gifts, I took part in the gift swap also. It was really fun and I loved the gifts I got. You are right, you certainly can't go wrong with Cadbury Buttons, delicious.

  2. It was so much fun to do, was lovely doing something a little different around christmas time.
