On the 10th Day of a Tiffany Blue Christmas…

tumblr_majy4yprY11r2uon8o1_500On the 10th Day of a Tiffany Blue Christmas, we’re talking the gift you’re most thankful for that you’ve received on a Christmas past.

Everyone has that gift. The family heirloom. The heartfelt homemade gift that left you in tears.

Every year, there is always a gift or two that leaves me speechless – last year, it was my gorgeous, monogrammed Tiffany & Co. bookmark from my mother, who sneakishly told me not to expect anything from Tiffany & Co. Needless to say, it was the most incredible surprise.

Then of course, there was my amazing hand-painted Bella ornament (as shown here) and my German Pyramid (a la Griswolds) from Dad that was a total surprise.

The year my mom kidnapped me and took me to the SPCA to pick out a new friend – my cat Bella. It was a Christmas gift that has brought more joy and love into my life than I could have ever imagined.

Now that I’ve officially gotten all misty-eyed looking at pics of baby Bella – I’m looking at all of you!

  1. my sweetie is a terrible gift -giver…at least, he seems that way and then he explains them to you. Our first Christmas together he handed me an envelope. Excitedly, I opened and found…a credit card. “Um, thanks?” I said, but inside I was screaming at such a terrible gift, I mean, who would actually use someone else’s credit card? Yep, I’m a capricorn. Then he took my hand and said.,something like “I know you’re in university and you have a pretty tight budget. I hate that I live two provinces away and can’t take you out when you really need it. But this way, when you really need a break or just a treat, I least I can still take you out.” Which was so sweet and thoughtful of him it ended up being the best present whenever I look back now (even if my capricorn-ness never let me use it more than once or twice).
