Congrats Wishing!!!

The best gift I'm giving is to my brother and his girlfriend, their getting a beach set with sarong, towels, floppy straw hats, a beach ball, a glow in the dark beach ball and a bucket and spade set. My brother especially will love it even though he's mid twenties lol his bday gift is pretty good too. He's getting a bottle of vodka but the bottle is a skull and a t-shirt that says shhhh this is my hangover t-shirt.

My dad and step-mum got me a new bedside table which Ive been wanting for ages. Tried to buy it a few months ago and they sold out pretty much while I was in store. I'm getting money for an iPad mini too, so its a pretty good Christmas this year.

Awww congrats! That was me last Christmas and I have a gorgeous 4 month old now.

DH bought us a joint present which is a tablet. Pretty cool and means I can finally get rid of my ancient PC.

DH got me a stunning Michael Kors watch after I showed him a photo of one I liked months ago, I can't wait to open it. It would have been a fantastic surprise, but he sent it to our friends in Texas to then forward on to us and I accidentally saw the FB messages they sent each other. Still awesome, though!

My BFF and her partner sent me baby cheeses via express post (from Darwin to Regional NSW)... she said it was for the religious aspect.

I cracked up laughing when I opened it and I am wishing I had some toothpicks on hand!

(Kath and Kim fans will understand this!).
