Thank you not-so Secret Santa

A little while ago I posted that I was taking part in a Secret Santa run by Money Supermarket.

It’s been a couple of weeks and I’ve not only purchased and sent my present, but received mine from my Secret Santa.

Firstly, I need to have a grump. It wouldn’t be a post from me without a bit of a groan. So here goes. Dear Money Supermarket, I think you need to be taught what a Secret Santa is. See, I found out who my Secret Santa was. Turns out, it’s the blogger (Dragons and Fairy Dust) who I was buying for! Turns out all they have done is pair up bloggers rather than doing a true Secret Santa. Should have just been called a bloggers present exchange!

Okay, gripe over. Onto the exciting stuff!

The other week I received a couple of interesting looking parcels. Cracked into them and this is what I found:

A personalised diary and an awesome lens cup! I’ll be completely honest, I was a whole lot more excited about the lens cup than the diary. It’s a lovely touch that the diary is personalised, but as you know, Google owns my life. So, my diary is totally online in my Google Calendar. I haven’t used a physical diary in years! Slave to the digital era.

But the lens cup is brilliant. The lens hood doubles as a lid and a little biscuit/mince-pie plate. An excellent present for someone who’s a fan of photography.

I hope my gift receiver likes her gift. I was aiming to get her something that has a bit of my influence in terms of my interest, but something that she could use with what she loves too. Fingers crossed!
