The fabulous Jennifer St George, an extremely lovely, charming and gorgeous lady stopped by to talk Christmas presents with me. Welcome Jen!
Ahhhh – it’s December. Where did the year go? I can’t believe it’s nearly Christmas. But, I do enjoy the festive buzz. I love buying Christmas presents. Being a control freak, I’m really organised and have the present buying in hand.
My other half, on the other hand, leaves it to the last minute. He suffers in the Xmas Eve shopping madness almost every year. So, I always have to have a list of simple things he can buy me. (Rach: My hubby asks me to do this too as he reckons he’s HOPELESS at present buying) This year my list includes:
Beautiful notebooks. I have so many but I just love them. I love some of them so much I can’t bring myself to write in some of them. Sad but true! (I’m EXACTLY the same!)
Lingerie. Hey, I’m a romance writer. I don’t think you can ever have too many pretty under garments!!
Exercise gear. With all the sitting down I do for writing, I try really hard to balance this out with lots of exercise. This year I started running again after a twenty year hiatus. It’s been really hard, but now I run between five and seven kilometers three times a week. As I’m rubbish at keeping up with the washing, I like to have lots of lycra lying around.
Books. Even though my TBR pile will probably keep me going for the rest of my life, I do love new books, especially writing craft books. (Funny thing all writers seem to have in common – absolutely ridiculous TBR piles. I estimate mine will see me until about 2027).
Perfume. I’m a sucker for sweet smells.
Clothes. I’m lucky that my husband has great taste and buys me the most fabulous outfits. But, as he is often rushed, this is usually a birthday option.
So, are you an organised Xmas shopper or do you suffer the madding crowds at the last minute. Leave a comment to go in the draw to win a copy of my latest release, Sweet Seduction.
Ooh a fab prize. Thanks so much Jen. This would be a gorgeous gift to self 🙂
