What I Got for Christmas 2021

Hello, hello!

I’m back from my extended Christmas break! I want to start by saying I’m sorry for just now posting since Christmas day. In my last post, I said I’d return with this post on January 4th. I meant to, but I wasn’t able to write the post, so I mean to extend my break for one week, and then post. Well, that week turned into over a month.

A few weeks ago, I asked on my Instagram story if you all would still be interested in reading the posts I had planned such as “what I got for Christmas” and “2022 goals”, even if they were one month late. To my surprise, 100% of you said that you’d still be interested in reading them! So, here we are!

I never intended to take this long of a break, but I had to set priorities and I was insanely busy. I’m SO EXCITED to come back and start posting more regularly! I miss blogging so much!

Before I get into this post, I want to mention that although getting gifts is so fun, it’s NOT the reason for Christmas. Jesus is! It’s so easy for us all to get caught up in the physical gifts that come with Christmas, and we forget Jesus, the greatest gift. I’m also in no way bragging about what I got! I’m incredibly thankful to everyone in my life who gave me a gift or texted me with a “Merry Christmas!” on Christmas day. I simply enjoy reading these posts and love writing my own. All gifts from my parents, unless noted otherwise.

Now that we’re through the long intro, let’s get into the gifts!

AirPods by Apple

I was SO HAPPY when I got these! I’ve wanted these for so long and I’m obsessed! These are the 2nd Generation of Airpods.

The Makeup Set by Glossier

Oh my gosh, this is one of my favorite gifts! I’ve been wanting some Glossier makeup for a while, and am so thankful I got some! I love every product and use each one in my daily makeup routine! In the set, I got the Lash Slick (mascara), Cloud Paint in storm (liquid blush), and the Boy Brow in clear (eyebrow gel).

Electric Toothbrush by Philips Sonicare

This is such a practical gift! I use it twice a day (obviously) and honestly feel like my teeth are cleaner and more white! I love this toothbrush because not only does it make brushing my teeth more effective, it has a two-minute timer for brushing too!

Milk Frother by Zulay’s Kitchen

This is amazing! I’ve loved making frothed milk for coffee, hot chocolate, and more! I like to call myself an “at home barista” and this is just perfect! It frothers any drink SO FAST and makes it so smooth and creamy! I’ve had this on my wishlist since my aunt got one for Christmas last year, and am so happy I got it. I may include some recipes I like to use with this frother in the future. This one is in black.

Bennie by Carhartt

This is SO cute! I absolutely love this beanie! I put one on my wishlist because they seemed like such a cute, functional beanie, and I’m delighted I got it! I love styling outfits with it. This is my favorite beanie I own by far! I got the color Carhartt Brown.

Lounge Hoodie Dress

This is so comfy! It’s a lunge dress/hoodie and it’s so soft! I love hanging around in it. It feels like I’m wearing a blanket! I love the pocket. The color is dark green/turquoise, but the picture I took doesn’t depict the color well.

Holiday Blend K-Cups by Starbucks

Yum, yum, yum! If you know me, you know I love coffee. These are the limited edition Holiday Blend K-Cups from Starbucks for my Keurig! I love drinking these and they’re so delicious. For those who don’t know, the Holiday Blend is a 100% Arabica medium roast with herbal and sweet maple notes.

Bluetooth Speaker

One of my younger brothers gave me this! It’s a water-proof Bluetooth speaker! I love this so much to play my music in my room! It’s very nice and I’m so thankful I got one because I’ve wanted one for so long!

Mini Waffle Maker by Dash

My sister gave me this! It’s the mini waffle maker that literally everyone seemed to get for Christmas, haha! I use this all the time and it’s amazing! I’m obsessed with the mini waffles it makes! They’re the perfect size for sandwiches too, so I can make breakfast sandwiches too. I got this in the color red!

I also got a variety of socks and bras that I’ve been loving! But, I won’t be including pictures of those.

Oculus Quest 2 by Meta

My other younger brother bought my family an Oculus Quest 2 for Christmas! This was a very generous gift! My family and I have had so much fun playing on this! My favorite games to play is Gorilla Tag and Beat Saber.

75 inch TV

My family got a new TV! It’s playing college basketball, of course. The quality is stunning and I love watching all my favorite movies, TV shows, and games on it!

Money, Gift Cards, Candy, etc.

I got this all from extended family, my job, and some kids I coach!

I’m so incredibly blessed for everything I was given for Christmas this year! I truly love all of it.

I’ll say it again, but these earthly gifts are not the reason for Christmas! Jesus is!

I’ll be updating my blog design, posting schedule, and more very soon! I’m seriously so excited to get back to blogging! I have so many fun post plans and the new theme will be beautiful!

Thank you so much for reading! Sorry, this post is so late but better late than never!

With love,

Miriam
