I’m grateful for such great presents from everyone that took the time to get me something and those who thought of me during this holiday season!
Each year, my siblings and I have our secret siblings gift exchange. This year my brother Matty got me for Christmas for the first time and this punny guy done spoiled me! We have a set of clues that we create to either correlate with the final gift, your secret sibling or the gifts for the said clues. My brother decided to create puns out of the clues for me to guess what they were, and not only that but the first letter of each clue were planned in a way to spell his nickname.
Here are the clues laid out in order:
🎁CLUE #1: May I just say that having you as my secret person is lit?
He got me a Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamp! I have been wanting one for a while, as it’s supposed to help in a therapeutic way. It acts like a purifier as a block of salt is attractive to water vapour which means it cleanses the room from dust, pollen, smoke particles, and bacteria.
It’s known to help reduce the risks of catching a cold or flu, increases one’s calmness as it helps reduces stress, helps one concentrate, lessens headaches and migraines, it’s supposed to help you sleep at night (and we all know I need this) the pink colour is known to help soothe one to sleep. It also eases one with asthma or allergies and helps improve one’s mood. I don’t really believe this works for all the things listed above, but I have a couple of friends who use them and have admitted these things to be true. You just have to make sure you purchase a real Himalayan made salt lamp, otherwise it will only work as a regular lamp without the benefits. I mostly needed it as part of my trial and error run on helping me sleep and to help with my stress. Here’s hoping it’ll help do the trick!🤞
🎁CLUE #2: And downwrite awesome because I already know you so well?
A Calligraphy set! This is also one of the things I have been wanting for a long time. I love typography and I plan to design more typefaces/fonts. I enjoy using a calligraphy pen, I have quite a few nibs on me and 2 or 3 coloured ink. I am excited to give this a try.
This set came with a bottle of black ink, a wooden pen with a steel pointed nib, an instructional booklet, A-Z exemplar, decorative labels, vellum sheets 😍 and a lined guide sheet. It’s so neatly packaged, well presented and nicely designed. I started crying at this point 😭. It’s so beautiful!
🎁CLUE #3: Though, a lot of the stuff you bring up are hard to find, I somehow managed.
He got me Alex and Ani’s Harry Potter Collection; The Boy Who Lived ring!💍⚡️ I recently found out about this brand through a coworker of mine and was told by one of them that they had added a Harry Potter collection. I wanted this ring, because I not only love rings but I wanted to purchase this style through Etsy a few years back. I could never choose which looked good, I didn’t want one that would tarnish and this came along. It’s so cute and pretty. This ring is a 14k gold plated and yes I was crying when I opened this up 😂😭.
It’s so precious! Look at the cute packaging with the quote.
🎁CLUE #4: Then again, you’ve asked for Stranger Things before.
This right here had me laughing. Not only was this gift perfect, but it sums up my relationship with my brother. We love to sing, make puns and this song has been stuck in our heads since we finished binge watching the series. I thought this was such a cute gift!
And that’s unwrapped!
Here’s a photo of both me and my little brother after the exchange:
