Rachel’s presents

Wow okay sorry this is late! As you may have noticed, I kind of stopped blogging last Friday after my birthday before trying again on Thursday. Unfortunately I’m just in a slump where even though I know what I want to write, I just can’t make myself sit down and write it. Sunday (yesterday) was my sister’s 18th birthday and so I went all out. Check out the planning post here!

As my friends have learnt, I love putting thought and effort into birthday presents and so I started with the intention of buying her 18 presents that would all be given to over the course of the day. Unfortunately this would include starting super early so instead I decided to give them all to her in one go.

In the end, I managed to buy all 18 presents and numbered them for giving them to her! So here they all are, listed and shown below. Technically it’s 19 presents but shhh…. These aren’t in the order she opened them in by the way, I forgot to make a note of what was what.

a travel toothbrush
A travel washbag and miniature bottles
A book on how to adult
A CD containing the top songs the year she was born
Travel adaptors – now she can stop stealing mine!
A passport wallet for her travels
A travel wallet for her boarding passes
Her favourite chocolates
Soap and Glory Birthday Set – her favourite stuff
An 18th birthday survival kit
The makeup brushes she’s had her eye on for months – Real Techniques
A shopper so she always has a bag handy
A small set of eyeshadows – she asked for eyeshadow but I don’t think these are what she wanted
A Smuggle your booze umbrella hipflask – perfect for that night out!
A percy pig cup with straw – she loves Percy Pig, and has recently become obsessed with only drinking through a straw
A Swarovski crystal statue of Tinkerbell – After Dumbo, Tink is Rachel’s favourite
A scrapbook for her to keep the cards and photos from her birthday weekend
A real leather hand luggage case – not what she asked for but I’d bought it before she specified what she would like…  Whoops!

The final present was that I am taking her away on a mini break to Lanzarote in March, just the two of us, to an all inclusive adults only hotel. I’m actually so excited to get away – here’s the hotel we’re going to!

 

What do you think?

  1. This is sooo cute! The amount of thought that has gone into each present is clear, I abs love the Adulting book, such a cute present! Also, the 1998 presents are so thoughtful, too, I hope she had a great birthday and I bet she loved her presents! Enjoy Lanzarote, you’re such a cool big sister lol! xxx
