Christmas Blog Swap 2015

This year I decided to join in on a fun little Christmas Blog Swap hosted by Leigh and Lindsey! I generally don’t do swaps because I think I’m a lame gift giver most of the time, but this year I thought I’d give it a go. Plus, I love sending (and receiving) mail that’s fun and not bills.

I was partnered up with Jen from Pretty Little Grub. We exchanged a couple of emails back and forth to get an idea of what our personal tastes were and went from there! I had fun shopping around for the perfect ornament to give to her, as well as a couple other little things, but you’ll have to hop over to her blog to see what I came up with ;)

Anyway, it was an exciting mail day when I received my package in the mail! (Fun fact: My MIL works at Canada Post sorting parcels and knows when I’m getting a package before I do. No fair!) It made me happier that the package fit in my mail slot and I didn’t have to make a trek down to the post office outlet to pick it up ;)

How cute is the little gift box? I’m pretty sure I mailed ours away in a toddler-sized shoe box . Anyway, after (gently) shaking the package, I was curious to see what was inside!

Jen picked out the prettiest little mitten ornament for our Christmas tree, and included a yummy Eos lip balm, a cute, festive wine bottle stopper, and chocolate – ALL the chocolate! I may or may not have devoured it all already … you know, to hide it from Isla …

The mitten is the perfect addiction to my eclectic mix of tree ornaments! Our Christmas tree has no theme, per say, and it looks perfect hanging in the branches!

So, thank you, Jen for the lovely ornament!

What’s your favourite Christmas ornament that you have?
