Lady Writes Secret Santa which was an idea I had to bring bloggers of all varieties together. The idea was that the Secret Santa was open to everyone, whether you were a lifestyle, parent, beauty, fashion or cooking blogger - or any other sort of blogger! Each person who joined in agreed to a £20 maximum spend (excluding postage) and the final date for postage was last week..
So it's been the most amazing feeling as people's gifts have started arriving and hearing how much people have loved being part of #ladywritessecretsanta - it required more admin work than I expected but that's because I wanted it to run perfectly smoothly - yes, I'm OCD! But now the gifts are arriving, now I've heard how much people have enjoyed it and it's all going to plan, now i can say it's been absolutely worth it and roll on next year when it's going to be bigger and better!
Firstly, receiving this made me cry. It was the most thoughtful gift I've EVER received. I can't believe the thought and effort that went into putting together this amazing box of treats just for me. Whoever my Secret Santa was, clearly put a lot of time into reading my tweets and blog posts to learn about me because she sent me all of my favourite things - it's like she'd known me all my life. And that's what lots of other bloggers are saying to - it's been such a touching thing to be part of.
I can't wait to see more of the posts from those who joined in, and just use the hashtag above to see what's going on with Lady Writes Secret Santa!
