When I was a kid, my mother used to keep all of her birthday and Christmas gifts in their packaging, and display them for a up to a week after the event. She could always show anyone who visited her gifts and they always looked so pretty all lined up. Unfortunately, due to my desire for instant gratification, I am unable to do this but now that I have Instagram, I can display my gifts prettily here. As soon as they were photographed they were opened and I’ve begun to enjoy them.
A gorgeous photo album, Thorntons chocolates (the best chocolates in my opinion) and drawer soaps to make your smalls smell sweet. Gifts from my darling daughters.
A terracotta pot full of lovely succulents. A gift from a friend who knows I want to fill my garden with cuttings from friends.
This little beauty opens up to reveal an actual cupcake inside. Yum.
Now I just need for the weather to cool down to proper Autumn temperatures so I can start wearing these lovelies.
Oh, how I enjoy a gift card!
A cute surprise from my little girl.
Beautiful flowers make every birthday complete.
I feel incredibly blessed by all the love and gorgeous gifts I received for my birthday. Thanks to all xxx
