What I Got for Christmas (2016)


Yes, I am jumping on the band wagon and will be doing a post like this as well! As the usual disclaimer goes, I am not trying to brag about these Christmas presents but I love reading posts like this so I wanted to do my own one. Also, my parents are divorced so I get Christmas presents from both my mum and my dad separately. I have separated my gifts into categories rather than who gave them to me as I feel it will be so much easier! Also, I give my parents Christmas lists so most of these Christmas presents are things that I wanted.


I have been wanting this since it came out and I finally received it! For those of you who do not know I love sport; and AB de Villiers is my favourite cricketer!


The Fantastic Beasts colouring book is something that is very exciting for me! I cannot wait to just grab my crayons and spend some time relaxing with it! I also received the screenplay for Christmas but as I received it early did not photograph it with my other gifts!


These are three CDs that I have been wanting for a while and I am so excited that I can finally listen to them instead of just listening to the songs over and over on YouTube.


Beauty bits are always appreciated! I really needed a new nail file and I love the ones with all of the different options. Loofahs are always needed, as are hand cleanser and hand lotion. The scent of these is amazing and they will have a special place in my handbag!



This eyeshadow palette is absolutely gorgeous and I cannot wait to use it! The nail polish and lip gloss are such stunning colours and I really needed the express dry drops for my nail polish!


And with new makeup I needed new storage. These are already full and I need to get some more of them! Thanks to my Christmas makeup and Essence Advent Calendar I got a bucket load of makeup this month!


I have The Godfather Pt. 2 but have been needing Pt. 1 which I received! Also, The Best of Me is based on a Nicholas Sparks novel so naturally I needed it.


I wear socks almost every day and sleep in them almost every night so this is something that I ask for a lot! And these ones are really cute!


I hate shaving so this razor is a very welcome addition to my life! Also, how cute is this glasses case?! My sister actually realised that it is the right size for lip gloss so I might even use it for that!


I am a baker so if you buy baking things for me it is always a safe bet. I also believe that you can never have too many baking things. These measuring cups that look like Russian dolls are amazing!



I received this lovely shirt and these beautiful necklaces from my sisters! I cannot wait to wear it to work…actually, I cannot wait to wear all of these things!

So there are all of my Christmas presents. I know that a lot of people are not a fan of these posts and that is okay. Have you done a post like this? Let me know in the comments below!

    I’m with you – I like posts like this. It’s neat to see what other people asked for and how they feel about the gifts they got. Glad you had a great holiday!
