The Christmas Tag!

Wednesday, 6 November 2013

Hi Ladies! I know it's only just November, but now that fireworks and halloween are out of the way, the next thing to look forward to is Christmas! I really wanted to start my own tag but seeing as everyone has already beaten me to Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, etc I thought I would get in there early and start this years Christmas tag! I tag all of you to do this tag and feel free to use the image! Also, tweet me or let me know in the comments if you have done this tag and I'll check them all out :)

1. What is your favourite Christmas drink?

I know the typical answer here would be any of the special Starbucks red cups but seeing as their Christmas menu is mainly targeted at coffee drinkers, I don't really enjoy it. My favourite Christmas drink has got to be a nice warm hot chocolate with lots of cream and marshmallows, it's the perfect way to warm up and get cosy before bed. 

2. What is your favourite Christmas smell?

I'm not really a fan of Christmas scented candles because I hate cinnamon and spice smells and it seems like most Christmas candles contain these smells. At the moment I really like 'Snowfall' by Lily Flame. The candle is so pretty with little blue and white chunks and it smells nice and fresh, like the first snow of winter. 

3. Do you have any Christmas traditions?

When I was little we would always go to the garden centre and pick out one tree decoration, we still have all of them and I still know exactly which ones I picked out, mainly because mine are all covered in glitter or pink!

4. What's the one thing you really want to get from Santa this Christmas?

If I could choose one thing it would be a Canon 600D camera, they take much better photos and I really like the effects you can get, but they are quite expensive so I doubt I will get one!

5. Have you ever built a gingerbread house?

When I came home from my first year at Uni for Christmas I attempted to build one but it is definitely harder than it looked - ours looked like it had been hit by a hurricane. Also, I don't actually like gingerbread, so I just picked the jelly tots off it and left it in the end!

6. Who is your favourite person to buy presents for?

Probably my Mum, there's a couple of brands I know she likes so I always buy her things from these, I won't say what they are though because it's her Birthday on Friday and I don't want to spoil her birthday surprise as she will probably read this! 

7. What is your favourite Christmas song?

All I Want For Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey, I love this song so much that I pretty much play it on repeat. Last year my housemates confiscated my speakers because they were sick of hearing it on repeat for a month! 

9. What is the weirdest gift you have ever received?

Something to sharpen knives from Travis (my cat), obviously Travis didn't pick this out, it was my Dad's idea of a joke - my cat really doesn't like me so it was meant as something for him to sharpen his claws. My Dad actually wanted one for the kitchen knives so I never actually got to keep my present in the end!

10. Do you like to dress up for Christmas or stay in your PJ's?

I always get moaned at if I wear my pj's all day at home but I think Christmas is good enough to get dressed for haha! Most years someone buys me something new to wear so I usually wear that or one of my favourite tops and jeans. 

I hope you enjoyed this tag and don't forget to share it on your blog, I'd love to know your answers! 


  1. ohhh totally gonna do this tag! Christmas is my favourite time of the year!

  2. I don't celebrate Christmas but this is a very cute tag! Gingerbread Houses always look so easy to build when you see people making them on TV, but sit down to do it and it's like ... COOPERATE MR. GINGERBREAD! Haha, and the icing dries way too fast! :)
