    I know what in advance what I'm getting every year as Mr glitzgirl asks for a list of things I'd like and he chose from that. He claims it's because he doesn't do girly shopping lol :)

    Here everyone gets a small stocking with sweets and of course a bottle of coke or mineral. Mine had my usual favourites a galaxy selection box, a dairy milk santa , after 8s, forrero Roche, and jelly tots :D

    The kids get a santa sack with their stocking fillers from santa but Mr glitz and I don't do this with each other as our gifts are a little bit more costly so they just go under the tree.

    From Mr glitz I got;
    A michael kors watch
    Pair of uggs
    A make up master lesson class voucher
    Voucher for hairdressers
    Pennys voucher
    Voucher for make up
    Perfume

    From kids I got ;
    some dvds I had wanted and my eldest picked me up a my little pony toy "because it was pink and a pony and a girls toy " and daddy wouldnt let him get a real pony ! bless him ha :D

    From Mother In Law she got me a shawl ( the woman hates me :mad: ) and it wasnt even pink :( !

    From sister ;
    Funny cup and wine glass set which i loved. Can't post details due to inappropriateness lol

    From my mam I got ;
    A new phone cover
    An at home pampering /facial set
    One for all voucher and
    A guess bag
    And most importantly my christmas pjs and slipper socks.

    Sounds like a lot but myself and mr glitz don't get each other anything through the year and wouldn't buy anything if it meant putting us under financial pressure. We shop through the year so it does build up a lot :)

    Hi gidget did you enjoy the colouring book ? They sound amazing. I'm thinking of asking Mr glitz for my birthday (he doesn't do subtle hints ) id say you'd get hours of fun with it ! :)

    I got lots of bits and bobs like nail polishes and make-up and books.

    My main present was a new GHD and I also got a voucher for the hairdressers I go to. Hair related presents are the best! :)

    Yes very much so, as a matter of fact my mam has started to hijack one of them as she started to get addicted to it too.


  • Registered Users Posts: 4,918 ✭✭✭ Sunny Dayz


    Himself got me a gorgeous necklace. We said we wouldn't get each other gifts this time as we didn't need anything but it's so pretty!
    Little Sunny Dayz got me a pair of fluffy pj's with penguins on them, so comfy and so me!
    My parents got us a big lantern thing with a candle in it, absolutely love it!
    His parents got us a newbridge decoration for the tree and a fancy candle, we have a few newbridge decorations now so are starting to build up a little collection so very much appreciated!
    Bro got me a next voucher, will be treating myself.
    Sis got me benefit and lush gift sets, deadly cos you can't get stuff like that around here!
    Granny got me Ferrero rocher sweets, which are super yummy!
    The boss (or rather his wife) got me a set of mugs and a chocolate biscuit cake pudding! Yum!
    One of my friends gave me a lovely tea light holder, I was surprised cos I got her nothing and my friends we normally don't get each other presents but then she pointed out I got her a Christmas gift last year for her new house and she never got us anything for when we bought ours the year before that so now apparently we are all even now!!
    We don't really do gifts with anyone else. My husband's got a large family so each just buys for their godchild.

    I got lots of lovely things- but tbh my favourite was getting to host my family for a dinner in my newly renovated house just after Christmas. :D

    However, to be purely materialistic, my GF got me a bottle of Tom Ford Grey Vetiver perfume (I now smell amazing, FYI) and the mint green vinyl version of my favourite album, Pale Green Ghosts by John Grant, even though she can't stand his music. :)
