Secret Santa

I signed up for 2 Secret Santas this holiday season - one with my friend Niki & one through a favourite blog, Lillyella. My first gift box arrived this week - I'm pretty sure this is from the exchange organized by Lillyella since I don't recognize the name. Want to open it with me?

When I first received the call that UPS was downstairs with a package for me, I was confused. I wasn't expecting anything... oh riiiiiiight! My Secret Santa gift is here!
Let's start with the pretty card (filled with flattering compliments - thank you Alyssa!):
And underneath:
I had a mug of the mint hot chocolate Friday morning - it was delicious! (All those candy canes are gone too...)
Next, I eagerly pulled out these gorgeous face clothes:
I love the colours & especially the texture! They are so well made!

I remembered about taking pictures before I pulled out the next part:
Delicious smelling soap! I could smell these the whole time I was handling my package, trying to place a very familiar scent. I didn't figure it out until I saw the amaretto cookie - yes! Amaretto! Yum!
I think the peppermint is my favourite, but the amaretto cookie is intoxicating too! I can't wait to use them.

The soaps are from Rose's Eclectic Garden. The clothes weren't labeled, but after a little Etsy snooping, I'm pretty sure they're from CocoaBeans (a lovely shop I would highly recommend browsing through).

My gift was carefully put together by Alyssa Mae - thank you so much! This was a perfect present - full of fun, useful & delicious things! I love it & look to my next Secret Santa with anticipation!
