What I Got For Christmas 2014

Happy Friday everyone! TGIF and also the first Friday of the 2015, so make it count! I thought it would be neat to share some items that I got for Christmas. I figured that if there is a strong interest in some items, I would be more than happy to do a review and let you know about my thoughts on that item.

I'm at an age now where I don't receive nearly as many gifts as I did growing up. And this is fine! I would prefer it this way, as Christmas is not all about the gifts. It's about the time spent with family and friends. My husband and I still buy gifts for each other. Usually we make a list on each other's phone of things we want. From there we will get each other the things off of our lists and a few fun things for our stockings (We are kids at heart!).

This is what my husband surprised me with in my stocking! I felt like a kid again on Christmas morning! P.S. he also added some things that weren't on my list (Bonus points!).

I got a mini pack of Starbuck's Christmas Blend coffee (I love me my morning coffee :), Starbucks gift card, Lush bath bomb, Lush massage bar in Percup, Hershey Kisses and Reese's Mini Peanut Butter Cups!

Aside from my stocking he got me this awesome hat and scarf, which I really wanted as I didn't have one. He got the hat from Old Navy and the scarf from H&M.

Every year, we have a tradition where we make sure to buy each other a Page-A-Day calendar for our desks at work. Something fun and cool to enjoy at the office! This year he got me this Inspire based calendar which I can't wait to use when I get back to work on Monday.

This one I have to say I'm most excited about! It's a 4-in-1 camera for my Samsung S5! The Samsung S5 takes amazing pictures for a cell phone, but I really want to try and increase the quality of my pictures on the blog for 2015. At this moment, this is the most economical way to do so. I am looking into getting a professional camera later on, but this will do for now. I haven't really used any of the lens or equipment as of yet. If anyone wants me to do a review on this, let me know and I can definitely share my thoughts.

I got this beautiful candle holder from my cousins! Not sure where I will put this yet...

I got these wine glasses from my in-laws which I was very much in need for! I love when gifts are useful and practical!

They also got us this really cute ornament for the Christmas tree! What I really love about this ornament is that it says 2014 on it, so we can always look back and remember when we got the ornament and the memories attached to the year 2014.

I got this box of chocolate from my friend at work, who knows that I LOVE Turtles chocolate!

I LOVE this shirt! I got it from my parents and sisters! It's from Express and funny enough, I've been spying on this shirt all year! They made a good choice!

Before Christmas, all of the cousins organized a Secret Santa and I got this necklace from my Secret Santa. Totally my style and I can't wait to add this to my outfit!

I love all of my gifts and will definitely be enjoying them as we start the new year!

Did you get something off of your wish list for the holidays?
