A very exciting post today, as it's my Birthday haul! This year was my 16th Birthday, and unfortunately I wasn't contacted by MTV, to star in their Super Sweet Sixteenth TV series. Before we get started I just wanted to make a little disclaimer; I haven't included all the presents that I received as I wanted this post to also be, a form of a Christmas gift guide, therefore I couldn't figure out ways to fit everything in. So if you're reading this and wondering where the present you gave me is, it's most definitely being put to use!
This year my main present was clearly my iPhone 6. Previously, I have owned the iPhone 4, and 5, so I am not a newbie to iPhones. When I was given my iPhone, I gave my old one to my mother. And it made me realise what great gifts, apple products make to loved ones. Christmas, is also the perfect time to give the gift of warmth, in the form of a coat, or a jacket. I was very chuffed when I opened my Borg lined jacket, as it's not only a lovely gift to receive, but it's also extremely practical. If you want to find out more, check back this Sunday for a more detailed post on this jacket!
Honestly one of my favourite gifts that I have received is the Modern Family box set. I haven't left the house since. Box sets are brilliant gifts, but a bit of advice; if the person you are considering buying for, has already watched the entire show, then I wouldn't recommend buying the box set for them. As TV shows are different to films, and are much harder to rewatch. I would recommend buying them a box set of a TV show that they haven't watched yet!The gift of music. Arguably the best. I always listen to music through Spotify, although whenever I'm in the car, where possibly I try to avoid KISS, or the dreaded Jack FM. And CDs are definitely the best way to do so. Alt-j, and BANKS, are two of my favourite artists, so when I got these, I was over the moon!One of the most versatile and genius present ideas. The humble mug. Everyone needs them, and I think a lot of people love them. This mug is from Anthropologie, and only cost £6! I really love this mug, it's so simple. I have definitely purchased a few for some of my friends, as it's just such an easy gift. This mug may be the answer to; 'What do I get the person who has everything?'.Another great present is a book. Calling Men In This Town, a book to read, may be stretching the imagination a bit too far, however a book like this is a great way to kick start someone’s love for books in general. If you feel you are lacking inspiration, these types of books are brilliant ways to get some. It's such an easy way to look for something new to buy!
I hope you guys have successfully managed to get some appropriate gifts this year, and haven't (like me) left Christmas shopping to Christmas Eve! Thanks for reading,
