Everybody loves gifts! I promised to share what I bought this year and honestly, it's been a long time since I had a tree filled with Christmas presents at home. This year was special to me because not only is it hard to find time to meet everybody I want to see..it was almost impossible to gather people because everyone is elsewhere somewhere.
This Christmas was one rare occasion when I could spend time with my dearest ones and close friends.
Christmas tree at home. Before that..
We started off with a potluck over at Tim's and had our regular "secret santa" amongst our office colleagues. I was really glad when I picked my santee's name.
1) I've known him for years 2) He's like my little brother that I want to protect and care for
I thought it would be easy shopping for a gift but it wasn't at all. He's a passionate person who is also very talented. So I got him these:
Cassie and I also made some truffles for potluck. It was half day in our office so we headed home and started making and "baking".
My secret Santa was Nick Tee, and he got me a lovely make-up set from Sephora hee =D
3) Christmas party at home
I spent a bomb shopping for gifts this month. But all was worth it, I was excited looking forward to catching up with all my high school, college, and childhood friends.
And little Phoebe too.
Look what we got John for this Christmas:
Hot and cold massager cum monkey :D perfect gift that he'd love
You guessed right, I got this Esprit sling bag for Shaz think it's perfect for work and play :)
Bought Charmaine a Sephora lipgloss (couldn't resist the packaging) and a Primark wallet
Also bought a lot of random gifts consisting of items like pingpong bat, shoe rack, etc. for guests that night plus we also had a mini gift exchange

What a good way to end the year. 2011 has been a great year for me, though a couple of hiccups, ups and downs, I carry with me the faith and that everything will fall into place again. I hope you guys had a wonderful year and Christmas.
Cheers to an even better year, 2012, please be good to me :D
Happy New Year guys and to my readers, thank you for reading.
