Secret Santa Swap

So sorry I am getting this post up late.  It's been crazy at work.

So, I don't know who my Secret Santa is, but they sent the most fun box!  There was a little bit of everything in that box of joy.  Plus, lots of the items were wrapped making the anticipation wonderful. Without further adieu, here's what I received:

Sorry about the bad cell phone pics.

A gorgeous hand-made bag.  I love everything in the box, but this is my favorite item.  

Sorry, upside down picture.  I did a little happy dance over the lip balm.  An it's praline brownie and vanilla flavors.  The praline seriously smells so good it makes me want to bake.  The hand cream is peppermint scented and went into my purse immediately.  I love, love the gray nail polish.

For my sweet tooth, I got Andes mints, Swiss Miss hot cocoa, a nifty little lolipop doo-dad that you put inn hot milk or coffee and it is chocolate mint, and gum.  I don't know why I never buy Andes mints because I really like them.  I can't wait to put the chocolate pop in my coffee tomorrow morning.  What a clever idea.  You can never have too much gum.

A Christmas candle, hand-made tree and lovely note cards.  The candle is going to the office with me and do you see how the cards match the bag?  Perfect.  The tree is amazing.  I love it and my 4 year old son immediately put it with our Christmas village.

Sorry about the sideways picture.  Baking items.  These will be perfect to use this weekend and next week as I finish making candies and cookies as gifts for all my neighbors and co-workers.  And check out the sprinkles:

Little candy canes!!

A sweet card.

And last, but not least, a Christmas printable in a frame.  Ok, seriously, this is such a great idea.  Why didn't I think of this for my box.  I adore printables and my Secret Santa sent me one already framed.

I have to let my Secret Santa know that I had SO much fun opening the box and discovering each treasure.  My sister was here when I opened it and was as excited as I was.

Thank you Secret Santa and Merry Christmas!

Thanks for stopping by,


P.S.  I was Secret Santa to Stephanie Cox at Wife Mommy Me.
