The first of the gifts I received this year was gifted a couple weeks early.
The rest were received on a snowy Christmas morning, including: a Knit Picks interchangeable circular needle set, sweets, my new favorite toothpaste (which will be much needed when considering all the former), money, and a Lifefactory waterbottle.
Every year I seem to get less and less which makes what I do receive mean even more and more. I’m so happy that my family has broke away from mindless spending and over-gifting on the holidays. We get each other the things we need, or, more often: we treat each other to things we normally wouldn’t buy for ourselves. Like the Knit Picks set. I can’t afford to buy the whole set in one go so I bought one pair in the beginning of December and planned on buying the rest individually over time. It was frustrating to realize that doing so (with shipping figured in) would cost a pretty penny more, so I was very excited to unwrap the whole set Christmas morning. I feel more ready for all kinds of exciting projects. (PS: They are very nice needles! Thanks to Allison for originally suggesting them way back when.)
Overall, I felt very spoiled this year.
I’ll be back tomorrow with the gifts I gave/made.
In the meantime, what did YOU get this year?
