Hellllllo readers and welcome to a slightly Christmassy post. I know Christmas was a little while ago now but I just haven’t had time to blog about all the wonderful bits I got for Christmas this year. I’ve never written one of these types of post before, because I thought it was a little bit too much like bragging but so many of the presents I was bought this year are so, so thoughtful I just couldn’t help myself.
I did think about adding links to where you can get all of these bits and bobs but I didn’t feel like going through and seeing where it all came from/cost etc so you’ll have to do a mini Google to find all these perfect gifts.
THE Personal LiBRARY Kit
This was actually one of the only things on my Christmas list to Santa and it did make it into my stocking which I did actually squeal at. As a young child (or not so young) I always made my little sister Char play libraries with me.
Now I can stamp my books out to friends and write when they were borrowed and when they are due back in again. It’s a lovely little present and just makes my little bookish heart sing.
Harry Potter Time Turner Necklace
Such a perfect present for a Potter Head. My utterly wonderful and lovely friend Dani bought this for me and it was such a lovely surprise. It’s just such a thoughtful and special present for someone who’s love of reading grew through the brilliance of HP. Perfect present for little bookish me.
Pug Mug, Pug Tea Infuser and Peppermint Tea
These presents came from three different people and do note I know those are tea bags but I had already cracked open my leaf tea so I used these Tea Pig ones for an image substitute. If you know me away from my blog you will know my overwhelming love of pugs and to get the mug covered in pugs and the tea infuser of a pug it is just perfect for drinking tea whilst I read along with my current book. So thoughtful and just so me.
Blah, Blah, Blah Notebooks
Gah these notebooks – how great are they! You might have read last year that I had a little bit of writers block – not on the reviews but on my Friday bookish blog posts. It doesn’t mean I don’t have any ideas necessarily but I tend to forget them because I don’t write them down which is super silly. Now I can write them in my brilliant blah blah blah books that perfectly show off my chatty personality.
Hotel Chocolate Mini Slabs and Dorian Gray
OMGGGGG – look how stunning is this copy of Dorian Gray is – I mean could it be anymore stunning? This book was also on my Christmas list because 1) Still need to read the book *slaps wrists* and 2) this edition is perfection!
I also got a Rocky Road mini slab from Hotel Chocolate that looks delicious and I accidentally took my sister’s caramel slab back too (oops) so I might give that back – *might.*
Little book of Happiness & Little Book of Mindfulness
These two lovely little book were given to me by Mumma B and they are just perfection. I’ve been working on finding inner happiness and becoming more mindful of the way I’m feeling etc. These books have been thumbed through so far but I will definitely be making use of them throughout 2K16.
There we go then, six wonderful and thoughtful presents from a bunch of beautiful people. What did you receive for Christmas? Anything bookish – comment below or as always tweet me @littlebookblog1.

Love the idea of a library kit and the HP time turner necklace is really fun.
I definitely need a library kit! And I’m drooling over the Dorian Grey edition. I was given ‘Texts from Jane Eyre’ – a fun book that reduces great works of literature to texts. Also, Chris Hadfield’s ‘An astronauts guide to life on earth’, which I’d so recommend. Sometimes the best way to refill the creative well is to read a biography of a life that’s hard to imagine.
Amazing! Lovely post 🙂
Glad you enjoyed! 😀
The library kit is so cool. I let people borrow my books all the time and it’d be a nice way to remember who I gave them too
Your family and friends have wonderful taste! I love how all of the gifts look semi-similar in style.. which must mean they know you well! I love meaningful things like that.
I know!! I am so so so lucky this year to receive such brilliant bits. My room is really like whimsical girly – so lots of cream and paisley and everything just looks gorgeous in it so I am a very very happy lady 😀
