Easter Gift Swap

When Belle du Brighton announced her Easter Gift Swap, I was all in. Give presents, get presents and good old fashioned snail mail - what's not to love?

I was to send to Lucinda from Teacher to Mummy. She said she loved Cath Kidston so off I trotted to my nearest store and got a notebook and some beauty bits. I unfortunately didn't take any photos as I was in such a rush to package it all before heading off on holiday. Hope you liked them Lucinda!

My package from Sophie in the Sticks arrived last week and I was so excited. 

Clockwise from left: Nail art sets, purse, notebooks, assortment of flavoured tea, notecards & a lovely card.

Well picked Sophie. I love stationary - I can never have enough notebooks. And these teas look so interesting - I'm particularly looking forward to trying the Chocolate Super Berry Burst! Plus I'm looking forward to making an inevitable mess with these caviar nail art sets. The purse is so pretty. Will be setting this aside for when my current one wears out. Logical :)

This was all nicely packaged in silver paper. I'd say quite well packaged, Sophie - you did a good job. Though I'm used to my boyfriend's wrapping where he's famous for stapling things...

Thanks again Lauren from Belle du Brighton & Sophie from Sophie in the Sticks. I would definitely participate in something like this again.

How was your Easter?


  1. I'm so glad that you liked it, I always get the fear that I'll misjudge my partner's tastes x

    1. You did an excellent job. Thanks so much! :) x

  2. Oooh good parcel! That tea does sound pretty tasty, and I love the purse! Sophie gives good gifts!
    Thank you so much for taking part! :)
