My sheepskin slippers from Aldi.
Just like uggs but wear £15! My mum got them for me and I've not had them off my feet.

I got a soda stream. I love it so much I may have gone a bit overboard with how much fizzy pop I've made in 2 days. I've made and drunk 6 litres as I needed to try all of the flavours DM and dd1 bought for me. They're all good, and they're all sugar free

Soppily, a massive outstretched arms greeting from my dad as I got off the train after several hours of travel. He never hugs people or shows emotion. Appar ntly he and dm were ecstatic to see me, so the hassle of organizing cover for the horse and traveling for hours was worth it.

Cherry red platform jadon DM boots. A kindle (which I never thought I’d want but am actually loving it), a 70s wicker peacock chair from my mum (I chose that!)

I was hoping for some more perfume as mine has almost run out , and a pottery course at my local college but maybe I’ll jjst get that myself.
Ds1 (20) bought me a rad book on feminism, a tiger pen pot and a vintage kitsch cat money box.

I got this, it is SO beautiful, an amazing surprise from DH!

PepsiLola Wed 26-Dec-18 20:27:48

My DH bought me a art print that made me so happy. It wasn't even significantly expensive, but it meant a lot to me.

He also got me a voucher for Ikea to go buy a frame for it (and I'm a weirdo who loves Ikea)

Chrome burgundy DM boots :D

Lovely thread.

I loved jewellery from bil & books from dh.

Might jump on the lexon bandwagon. Have a great audio pro something for kitchen but need a cheaper one for playroom so this sounds good!

Where did the David Bowie Dec come from? Need one for bil birthday in a weeks time!

Thanks heron

I'm 22, recently got a mortgage and moved out.
My fav this year was a copper colander and copper baking racks for my kitchen!

HaudYerWheeshtYaWeeBellend Wed 26-Dec-18 16:50:18

Oh and a little card of my children to say they promise they won't fight for 24 hours... it lasted 3 hours, but the thought counted grinhmm

HaudYerWheeshtYaWeeBellend Wed 26-Dec-18 16:49:17

New kitchen, and a trip to Paris

Magmatic80 Wed 26-Dec-18 16:48:29

Take That tour tickets from DP. I was totally surprised and may have welled up a bit. He mentioned the tour a few months ago but I dismissed the idea as too expensive and never thought about it since. He also bought me new album so he can learn the words before June fgrin

Lisbon, those Le Creuset mugs sound gorgeous!

lotusbell Wed 26-Dec-18 16:41:20

I got a Neom 3 wick, too. The green one - Perfect Moment I think

blueangel1 Wed 26-Dec-18 16:32:00

@zoflorabore congratulations to you too! Yes, I know what you mean, it feels very weird at the moment.

Newyearwhoohoo Wed 26-Dec-18 16:17:03

A very special tin of Quality Street from DH. They are all Green Triangles. You choose your own and the tin is filled for you in store. I was delighted.
Friends think I'm mad and should have picked the Big Purple One should I?.

Zoflorabore Wed 26-Dec-18 15:35:47



It feels weird doesn't it? I keep looking st my hand grin

blueangel1 Wed 26-Dec-18 14:56:04

@zoflorabore I got an engagement ring too. Totally gobsmacked.

HeronLanyon Wed 26-Dec-18 14:20:18

Re the speaker it is a thing of beauty. And has surprising power and lovely balanced tone. Used it two rooms away from phone but think that’s about limit if range. Honest have no links to it it’s just a lovely little thing.

Millie2013 Wed 26-Dec-18 14:18:44

OH bought me some lovely cath kidsten PJs, a joules top and scarf and my fave hotel chocolat
Mum has given me some money (“to buy some new clothes” (because I’m a scruffy mare grin)) and lovely bits including neal’s yard bubble bath
We both had some € from MIL, to spend at DLP next year
