My Secret Santa Goodies!

Broke & Bookish Secret Santa
So excited to receive my Secret Santa goodies from the Broke & Bookish swap! I wasn't expecting to get anything so soon and, to tell the truth, I haven't even mailed mine out yet (in my defense, I'm still waiting for an online order to arrive). So what a great surprise!

My Secret Santa was Tanya from Ramblings of a Reading Addict and boy did she do a fantastic job! Look at what she packed my gifts in - book boxes! Is that awesome or what? Love it!

The smaller box held a treasure trove of goodies! Twizzlers, chocolate Santas, Milky Way minis, a chocolate Kiss, and a bag of coal. But it's okay, because the coal was made of chocolate! I'm seriously in love with this girl, as she sent me so many of my favorites!

The bigger box held even more goodies, including bookmarks and Ghiradelli peppermint bark! I collect bookmarks, and some of them were even signed! Tanya really hit it out of the ballpark with her selections. Wonder if I can hire her to be my personal shopper? *L*

She also included some silly socks, which I love. Another home run!

And now for the major goodies in the box- books! While I had included my wishlist when I joined the swap, I also said I'd love to discover some of my Santa's favorite titles. While the Rowland book was on my list, the other two are new to me and I can't wait to read them!

I simply cannot get over how wonderful this gift is! So many of my favorite items, and some new books to read! There's not a single thing in this box that I don't absolutely love! If my Secret Santa enjoys my gift half as much as I'm enjoying Tanya's, then I'll consider it a win. 

Thank you so much Tanya! You rock!
