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

@PomBearWithoutHerOFRS... lovely. Can i risk sounding soppy too by saying my best present was watching Chitty Chitty Bang Bang last night with DH & DS (5) all the way they and not one interruption! DS was mesmerized. Bear in mind the film is over 50 years old and he said he LOVED it! He held my model Chitty Bang Bang car the whole time. That was my best present anyway.
Happy Christmas all

A set of interchangeable knitting needles and one of those proper cat candles in grey, so it looks a bit like my cat from my 19 year old son and a huge gift bag full of about 15 pairs of lovely fluffy chenille socks (I have cold feet all the time), some lovely stuff from body shop and my favourite chocolates from my 18 year old daughter, plus lots of other little things. All wonderful thoughtful things, they did very well!

Pyropet candle, not proper!

@notveryadventurousname it is a glass sphere to shoot through and it gives some cool effects.
These are my first efforts

I had actually bought myself a couple of things for DH to give me, thinking he wouldnt know what to get ...
However... he got me a handbag which I wasn't expecting but had been looking online for. In the gift bag with it was a massive gift set of No.7 products which I love. Some of them I already use but others will be nice to try. It was really thoughtful and unexpected and shows he listens to me blathering on about things throughout the year

Boden slippers and some fab new MAC makeup brushes from OH ( both hinted at by me for poss gifts!)
And a voucher for a treatment/massage at a lovely spa place near us.

I loved all my presents. I got a fabulous Barbour coat, skincare from Glamglow and The Ordinary, copious amounts of tortoiseshell resin earrings (bit obsessed at the moment) and this pair of boots is currently winging their way to me for tomorrow.
Still got presents to have at my dsis, but imagine these will be small token things as they'll mainly buy for the kids.

A knitted David Bowie.
cheesenpickles · 26/12/2018 09:38
@HRTpatch OMG! That would make my Xmas!

My favourite perfume that I couldn't justify buying in a million years as it is so expensive from DD1.
Mind you she did say she nearly passed out when she heard the price of it as she was buying it.
DavetheCat2001 · 26/12/2018 10:24
I have DB on the Xmas tree 👌
BooseysMom · 26/12/2018 10:31
DavetheCat2001... omg DH would love this. I have to say that's the 1st & only DB tree dec I have seen... beyond cool
beanaseireann · 26/12/2018 11:03
Sorry to burst your bubbles DavetheCat and BooseysMom but it doesn't really look like David Bowie.
DavetheCat2001 · 26/12/2018 12:12
Apology accepted @beanaseireann
BooseysMom · 26/12/2018 12:20
Just asked DH who it is and he said Bowie straight away. Ok it's not the spitting image he said but a good liking
DavetheCat2001 · 26/12/2018 12:26
I think the ziggy stripe gives it away!
beanaseireann · 26/12/2018 12:29
The Ziggy stripe is perfect but the face is not a good likeness.

A really beautiful very small Bluetooth speaker ‘lexon’ Danish design. Slightly obsessed with it. Streaming music and oodcasts through it. Unbelievable sound. Range of colours. Though it might have been really expensive. All that was divulged was it was under £50. One of the most beautiful little things I’ve ever seen !
ikltownofboothlehem · 26/12/2018 12:36
DH made me an 'anti-stress box' with my chocolates, wine, candle, puzzle book, Jack Daniels and a voucher for a deluxe facial and massage.
DS got me a great mug and beautiful necklace.
Witchend · 26/12/2018 12:38
I have wanted one for years. I am smug and very happy and currently surrounded by heaps of fabric all edged beautifully.
DwangelaForever · 26/12/2018 12:42
My hubby is taking me for a day spa and lunch at our fave spa hotel in 2 weeks time 😍 we would love to stay over but hard to get babysitters for a 2 year old and a new born haha

My grandma who is 94 and in a home asked my Dad to buy me some perfume from her. I love it. Dad also bought me some new crochet hooks, yarn and patterns. DH bought me a Grasmere gingerbread hamper and 7yo DS and 11yo DD bought me the most lovely toadstool necklace with DD's own money in July. I had no idea (nor did DH). She's fab and it's beautiful.
Happy happy happy.

Wildflower seeds and a book about planting to attract bees.
And a lovely bead bracelet - my son bought it from his earnings from his first job ( paper round)
