MERRY CHRISTMAS!! I hope you’re having an amazing day full of family, friends, and amazing food! In case you didn’t know, Cathleen from Classy Cathleen and I put together a Blogger Secret Santa this year, and I’m proud to say that we had over 25 people participate. It was such a success and I’m so excited to reveal to you who my Secret Santa was and see everyone else’s Secret Santa reveals!
This year’s Blogger Secret Santa came about because I begged Cathleen to host another one after I had so much fun participating in last year’s. She graciously allowed me to help her host the 2016 edition of the Blogger Secret Santa, and I can honestly say that I had a blast organizing all of it. After about a week of working on countless Google Docs and Google Sheets, we finally launched, and I was so excited to see so many amazing bloggers wanting to participate. Just like last year, all of the participants reveal their Secret Santa on Christmas Day (aka today) at 10 AM EST. I’m going to try my best to include links to everyone’s Secret Santa reveal posts at the end of this post, so definitely make sure you check out their reveals! KEEP READING “And My Secret Santa Is…”
This year I participated in a Blogger Secret Santa! This was the first annual Secret Santa hosted by Oliva from NC Prepsters and Cathleen from Classy Cathleen. We used this website called Sneaky Santa to automatically select Secret Santas. Once we found out who we were shopping for, we had until the 15th of December to send out our packages! Mine arrived last Friday and this is what my Secret Santa got me!
She included all of the gifts in this adorable felt Santa bag! This was such a cute idea. I wish I had thought of that!
It seems that every year, Secret Santa becomes more and more popular. And to be honest, I love it! This year I am taking part in a blogger Secret Santa, and these are some of the items I got for mine! I’m actually really excited with how it all turned out. These ideas are in no way just for bloggers, in fact, they will work for just about anyone! (Also, as I was editing these pictures, some of them are out of focus and I have no idea why. Technology, again, just didn’t want to cooperate.)
Stationery. This is a no-brainer for bloggers. We love cute stationery to take pictures of and just have around. Tuesday Morning has a wonderful selection of tumblr-worthy stationery, and they’re really affordable! That’s a plus, especially for a college student. KEEP READING “Secret Santa Gift Ideas”
