What I Got for Christmas

I always get a pretty good mix of practical and fun gifts for Christmas. I am the type of person that typically doesn't hate any gifts people buy for me. I had some "oh, I've always wanted one of these" moments, and that is usually the reaction gift givers are looking for.

First up, practical gifts! The first practical gift I received was a 2 quart crock pot. I have a gigantic 7 quart one, but most recipes call for a smaller size. I was able to use this already for New Year's to keep rice warm, and it worked perfectly! Next up was a Snackeez. Listen, I know that I am 28 years old. I have an obsession with travel mugs. I am telling you, this thing is genius. I can put a drink and a snack in one package. I've already tested this, and I love it! Trust me, if you don't have one, you are going to want one.

Next, big gifts! I got a few bigger gifts this year. From my parent's I got an iHome. My old alarm clock worked well, but with this one I can charge my phone and wake up to the music I have on there as well. I love that I don't have to keep turning my alarm off and on throughout the week. I just press the power button and it resets for the next day! The big gift I got from my aunt and uncle was an Isaac Mizrahi ceramic watch. It is a light pink, and neutral enough that I can wear it with almost anything.

Sentimental gifts are next, and are ones I expected to get. Every year, my Bubba gets me a nutcracker. This year she got me two mini nutcrackers from Jim Shore. My aunt always gets me a Snowbabies figurine, and I loved the one she got me this year! She got me one with Rudolph and Clarice. So cute!

I received other items too, but these were some of the big ones! What did you get for Christmas? I'd love to read about it! Leave me a comment and let me know!
