secret santa with george

all items ℅ george/santa

everybody loves secret santa, don’t they? buying a little gift for a group of friends or colleagues, waiting with anticipation to see if they like their surprise? well, it totally works the same online, except there’s a lot of checking out your recipients blog and social media.

along with a group of bloggers, and with thanks to the kind and hard working elves at talented talkers, we got to experience the joy of choosing and receiving some wonderful early-christmas treats! we were each told who our secret santa giftee would be, then slyly stalked each others social media to find the perfect gifts for each other.

as you well know, i love the charity shops here, as well as roath park, the museum, chapter arts and many other places, but i thought it would be nice to do something together and treat my boyfriend to a nice meal. we’ve been to the cosy club before, and have loved the decor and food so this was the perfect opportunity to go again.
