Christmas is past but that doesn’t mean that the fun is over. Seeing gifts given to me by friends and family bring such joy to my life. I didn’t receive a lot of gifts this year due to finances but I did get a few and I wanted to talk about my favorites.
My favorite gift this year is one that I wear often. It is a gold necklace that I bought myself. Yes, I bought it myself. Sometimes you just have to take care of your own gifts. I have always wanted a white gold necklace with a cross charm and I finally got one. It means a lot to me and I wear it with pride every day. There is nothing better than a good quality piece of jewelry that you can wear without worry of it turning your skin colors or tarnishing!
My mom bought me some cute Ugg slippers for Christmas. I love them. They are so comfortable and I wear them every evening after I get home from work. I never knew shoes could be so comfortable. It was a surprise gift as I wasn’t expecting anything from her at all this year and she gave both me and my sister a pair of shoes.
My kids gave me the normal school-made gifts which I always love. I got an ornament from Joley and Jemma. They will both go on our tree for many years to come. I love to go to my mom’s house and see ornaments that I made when I was my kids’ age. So, I will have their ornaments on our tree for them to see as they grow up.
I received a few gifts from the kids at school. My favorite was chocolate covered almonds. They were delicious and I enjoyed eating them over Christmas break. I got a very cute jacket from the Parent’s Association. I bought myself a hoodie with my school’s emblem on the front that I can wear to work with my scrubs. I am all set with gear for school now.
What did you get for Christmas? What is your favorite gift?
