I got a voucher for afternoon tea (yum), a glass ball for photography and a lovely necklace. Very spoiled.

The most gorgeous fluffy dressing gown! . My ten year tatty one is being donated to our ddogs!
And the best gift was a stress free top day!

Oh yes, I got a 90 minute dog walk in dry weather too, and a bath, so that was lovely too.

Some lovely pjs and a dressing gown, just to my taste! Really love them

My DM has surpassed herself, we always get some money but this year she has doubled it and added some so we can go to Paris in February for 4 nights not three and without putting too much in card, DH has cancer so it's, and I know that MN hates this, making memories for children and to do that without stress is fantastic, happy Christmas everyone

I got a Fitbit Versa from DM which was a lovely surprise as I'd actually really been wanting one, though I don't think it's something I'd mentioned to her smile

Fluffy slipper boots and the Harry Potter lego castle. Thrilled 😁

New fluffy loungey socks. I love putting them on once I'm "in" for the day.

A kindle paperwhite.

A personalised pen and a Tree of life necklace from a workmate - my eyes leaked when I opened it.

A really beautiful pair of gloves with quirky buttons on them.

Tigger03 Tue 25-Dec-18 21:09:53

I got a chillys water bottle which I’ve wanted for ages, beautiful pjs from Victoria’s Secret and a great gin selection 😊

A light box of the London Underground sign. It's a bit niche and I'm thrilled DH bought it as it falls firmly and squarely onto his tacky list grin

mimibunz Tue 25-Dec-18 21:13:00

A book that I didn’t ask for but my DH knew I would love.

MamaBearThius Tue 25-Dec-18 21:14:44

My 2 year old DD took Daddy to Primark and chose me an outfit by herself. A gorgeous orange jumper (my favourite colour) and black high waisted skinny jeans. My girl has got such good taste grin

Livingthedream12345 Tue 25-Dec-18 21:23:16

I got a wonder woman apron from my great friend.
Girl Power!

Bookbinding kit to make my own notebooks.
A tote bag with my favourite animal on that matches something I'd asked for as it was a complete surprise.
Books chosen by DP and DD, again complete surprise as DP had already got my presents and he is usually useless at knowing what I like but he did good this time.

An internet radio, I love it. I had no idea there were so many radio stations!

Zoflorabore Tue 25-Dec-18 21:42:50

An engagement ring smile

Also 2 box sets of Alien perfume ( my fave ) and the Alien candle plus my auntie got me YSL mascara which was a lovely surprise.

I'm sick so not had the Christmas I planned ( no dinner or anything ) but the people who matter are inside these 4 walls.

Happy Christmas everyone.

HelloCanYouHearMe Tue 25-Dec-18 21:44:34

This year, I hadnt asked for anything and certainly didnt expect anything... I was handed a box by DM, with a tag on it saying it was from DS(3) - in it was a bottle of my favourite perfume

MrsDeanWinchester75 Tue 25-Dec-18 21:47:57

First year ever I've had nothing off dh but asked for nothing, I've lost 3 stone and have 1.5 to go so he's taking me shopping for a whole new wardrobe on 16th February when I'll be a target and I'm so excited!

FiveGoMadInDorset Tue 25-Dec-18 21:48:34

@dragonfly7 I like the idea of a bookbinding kit, will drop very heavy hints to DH for my birthday

Notveryadventurousname Tue 25-Dec-18 21:50:46

I'm intrigued, what is a glass ball for photography?!!?

Nacreous Tue 25-Dec-18 21:56:45

We had a total bumper bonanza Christmas here; the whole family got lots of things they loved. I got loads of twiddly bits for sewing, which is really exciting, and some nice bits for the house as well!

Nacreous Tue 25-Dec-18 21:57:22

Also the crystal balls for photography look super cool! Are they really hard to use?

dragonfly7 Tue 25-Dec-18 22:14:49

@FiveGoMadInDorset it's fab, it comes with all the tools and materials needed to make two notebooks. It's a company called learnbookbinding, such an unusual gift.
