Half Way Through Advent...

I didn't think going about posting what I open from my advent calendar every day was a great plan, that's too much effort and not enough stuff for a single post, so I'm posting my advent calendar in two parts!

Since we're half way through, now is a good time to post the first 12 doors...

My mum puts this all together herself every year and they're not all amazingly awesome things but what makes it special is that she's gone through the effort to make it for me. She does one for my brother too and I just think things like this are such a nice family tradition at Christmas.

Mum tries to spend a little amount on each, but still make them relatable to me...

1. Face Mask | 2. Cocktail Chocolates | 3. Santa Head Lipbalm | 4. Christmas Pudding Pants 
5. Cat Watch | 6. Softly Tissue Pack | 7. Camera Necklace | 8. Cat Cookie Cutter
9. Snowman Bath Bomb | 10. Snowman Chocolates | 11. Cat in a Box | 12. Glitter Nail Varnish

They're proper granny pannies but they're christmassy and awesome any way; my mum's obviously 'Crazy for Christmas Puds' too! Can't wait for the face mask and bath bomb...

These are my favourite 5 from the first 12 days.
Can't wait to be making cat cookies soon, may even make a christmas cat cookie somehow!
and the santa lip gloss is the funniest but greatest thing I've ever seen!

So what do you think of my advent?
Anyone else have one that they make themselves like this!?
Might not be as fancy as the rest of yours but I love it :)

  1. Such an adorable idea that it's filled with little gifts, really looking forward to see what else you get :) x

  2. My grandma used to do that for my brother and I when we were younger. She had to stop doing it for the past few years, but it's definitely something I'd like to do for my own children one day! I absolutely love those pants haha, they're great!
