I was ever so pleased to have pulled out a good friend at work for Secret Santa. She is into Matryoshka dolls also known as Russian Nesting Dolls. I found these festive themed Russian dolls a few months back, so it was quite timely and fitting that I pulled her name out of the jug,(don't worry I also bought her another gift).
I was given a beautiful Fair Trade hand crafted silk scarf by my Secret Santa - its just my colours. I also received this Cinnamon & Orange Soap and Grapefruit Aloe Shampoo as a Thank you from Amy. The shampoo has twigged D's interest. I said he likes citrus things.
Now onto things under our Christmas tree. One of the gift bags comes from a friend at work (the very same one I had for Secret Santa) and the other gift bag was collaborate effort of a young nephew and nieces. Everything else was mostly from my husband or from me to him. My husband thinks I am hard to buy for, I don't think I am. Of course like most people I would love a bigger house with a bigger kitchen, a real log fire, a dog ...but the truth is I am content with what I already have in my life, everything else is a bonus!
So what did I get? An electric tooth brush and here are some cookbooks; a Owl shaped cookie cutter to go with my cookie cutter collection.Another vegan cookbook, even though I am not vegan - but hey everyone can eat vegan.
This one is not a vegetarian cookbook, but I am a fan of Kelis and had her cookbook My Life on A Plate on my wish list. She has an entire album dedicated to Food, here is a link to one called Breakfast. There are plenty of recipes that can be adapted and some of course are already naturally vegetarian.
