So, I wanted to do a quick, haul-style post today with a roundup of what lovely gifts I received for my 25th birthday. I’m a very lucky girl! I’m not posting these to show off; more to remind myself in the future of what I got as I can never seem to recall!

Phillips Wireless Headphones

Pink Nike gym gloves & USA hair ties 

Paul’s main gift to me was an amazing day out in London full of treats, which I will write up in a separate post, but he also got me a pair of Bluetooth headphones for the gym. I’ve been after some for ages so I was so pleased with this gift! Also fitness related I got some lightweight Nike gym gloves which are pink (I like to keep it girly even when I’m working out!) and some workout hair ties.

Rose Gold Pandora Bracelet with pink glass charm.

Something I’ve admired from afar for a long time is the pandora bracelets. I just think they are so classy and stunning, especially the rose gold one! I’ve only got one charm so far, but even the bracelet on its own is beautiful.

Osprey travel day pack

For our adventure honeymoon!

Personalised teachers diary

Such a cute idea – it’s got lesson planning space for each day and a message on the back from Paul.

Body Shop Seaweed products and body brush

Liz Earle hot cloth cleanser & exfoliator

Molton Brown mini shower gel set

Disney DVDs Up & The Hunchback or Notre Dame

2 more to add to my expanding collection! You can see what else I’ve got here.

My favourite sweets – what can I say!

I’m so grateful for every gift I received and am so lucky to have family and a husband who know me so well! Thank you everybody.


A fantastic week in sunny London which started with a Bank Holiday (always a winner) and ended with a lovely family birthday celebration.
