I wrote quite a heavy post yesterday. I seem to have a habit of doing that sometimes. So I thought I would write something lighter today. Just because Christmas really. And I like window shopping online in my lunch breaks anyway.
I actually know, for the most part, what I’m getting for Christmas this year. And it’s pretty much IKEA vouchers, which is absolutely fine by me as we’re trying our best to save pennies and be resourceful! We have a nursery to kit out, as well as Bill’s bedroom, and some extra things for the kitchen, like some shelves and a sofa (if we can afford one!).
I think it’s brilliant that we have family who want to help us to get those things and are happy to give Mark and I vouchers, instead of personal gifts. At the age I’m at now, while opening presents is lovely, I get to watch Bill open his gifts before he goes to his dad’s. And I get to see Mark’s reaction to his presents, as well as my family too. And that’s really my most favourite part.
That’s not to say I don’t like treats too. My birthday is exactly a month after Christmas, so I guess I could treat this as a joint list! Or a list that I would buy myself, should I have the money.
It mainly consists of pamper products – Lush owns Christmas in my opinion and I’d be happy to have anything from there, but these are a few random picks. GinZing is my favourite moisturiser – I’d buy it for the orange grove scent alone! The Clarins oil is meant to be brilliant for the belly, so I’d love to try that too. The Uggs I’ve mentioned before – I don’t know why they are so appealing to me when I’m pregnant but they look like heaven! The books make me so happy. I love reading and rarely get to do it anymore. I feel like social media has ruined it for me. And life is too busy to sink into a good book (with a box of Celebrations, Quality Street, or Roses please – I forgot to add those to my list!). And the Prosecco Gummies are a necessity really. If I can’t drink the fizzy stuff, I can at least eat sweets that taste like it!
