You’ve heard me say it before, but my favorite thing about blogging is the community! I’ve made so many friends through my blog and have gotten to do a lot of fun collaborations. This holiday season I signed up to do a gift swap with a group of bloggers.
When I first signed up for the Merry & Bright Gift Swap, I was hoping I would get paired with a blogger I “knew.” I was so excited when I found out that my gift swap partner was Lauren of Sunshine & Sweet Tea.
I’ve been following Lauren’s blog almost as long as I’ve been blogging. We have gotten to know each other a little bit through leaving comments on each other’s blogs and following each other on social media.
I had so much fun shopping for Lauren’s present, and after I sent it I started looking forward to receiving my present from her. We have a lot in common, so I knew she would pick out some really great things!
It’s amazing how well Lauren knew me, even though we haven’t met in person. She put together a fun package of goodies that any foodie would love to receive!
I love using my Keurig to fuel my caffeine addiction. I also LOVE chocolate, so this Brooklyn Chocolate Flavored Coffee is perfect!
My room smells amazing thanks to the Cupcake Frosting reed diffuser Lauren sent me. It could get dangerous, though, because I wake up wanting dessert!
I love baking holiday treats to give to friends and family, so the baking gift tags are right up my alley! Aren’t they adorable?
Peppermint is one of my favorite holiday flavors, so I am excited to enjoy this Peppermint Bark. It sounds so good!
Lauren also sent me some cute baking tools like a whisk, spatula, cookie cutter and cookie stamp. I can’t wait to use them to bake some holiday treats!
Are you curious to see what I got for Lauren? You can check out her post here!
Be sure to head over to Sunshine & Sweet Tea and say “hi” to Lauren! She blogs about life as a southern girl. I love her recipes and all of her other posts, too. You will love following her blog!
