I hope everyone had a great Christmas - I thought I’d start a topic to see if anyone got anything really unexpected and surprising for Christmas.
I got the usual socks and pants, a new board game and an awesome book about fungi! However my best present so far was from my in-laws (although they’d probably be disgusted as I’ve been using it in a creative way! ) They got me a super bright head torch. My OH hates the cold, so often I have to practice my favourite sexual practice (oral on my wife) in the dark, under the duvet……however now I get to enjoy the experience in glorious Technicolor! Happy days. All I need now is a small, under duvet air conditioner to keep me cool!
Did anyone else get anything unexpectedly cool?
I got two bottles of Lynx Africa instead of the usual one.
I’m classing that as an unexpected bonus!!
Mine was a 4 pack of Lincoln biscuits if you know you know
The reaction to a homemade gift i created, i know the person i gave it to appreciated it, and that was reward enough for me.
I got a sarcasm ball (like an 8 ball), I got some hair brushes, some makeup, some earbuds, some alcohol.
My favourite thing though was this recipe journal thing I can write recipes into and it’s like a folder type thing. I love cooking and baking so this is perfect for me
@Rob36 lynx africa is my favourite lynx to smell on a man. The person made a good choice
I now feel I need a sarcasm ball in my life. So me
Do they still make those? I love, love, love them! In my teens I used to microwave a milky coffee and dunk half a bag for breakfast every Sunday
They do but they are really hard to get hold of and not cheap by the time you factor in delivery lol but I have such fond memories of them from my nan’s biscuit tin when I was a kid. I’ve mentioned them so much and was beyond chuffed to unwrap 4 packs Christmas Day from Mrs H . I do love a biscuit
They are definitely one of my top 5 - although I only ever had them as part of a variety pack. Wierdly pink wafers are my favourite biscuit (if you can call them such) - although anything shortbread-like (like Lincoln’s) will be smashed into my mouth!
I wish I could skip to the corner shop for a packet again. Sadly, Fox’s Moos just don’t hit the spot like Lincolns did
Enjoy your nostalgic feast!

A Tiffany necklace from the OH was totally unexpected and very appreciated! I showed him how much later that evening!!!
Reminds me of my ex boyfriend circa 1995
Mr John actually needed socks this year.
He wasn’t disappointed
I had to reread this 3 times before I remembered that torch is just a flashlight across the pond.
Everything! The past couple weeks have been full of good memories.
I actually have a signed print of Leonidas from Frank Miller’s 300!
Obviously got the obligatory boxers and socks, which are always good to replace the worn out ones.
The best unexpected present was a beard beauty kit; beard shampoo, conditioner and oil. Now I’m giving my OH a run for the most number of bottles in the bathroom and showing my age
