12 Days of Christmas Swap: Days 2 through 4
It’s been a little busy so can’t blog everyday about the presents I’ve opened from April but I’m glad to say: so far so good!
On Day 1, I received a christmassy snowglobe. On Day 2 I opened a present that I touched and rattled and couldn’t figure out what the hell it was!
Turns out April gathered a special kit of what I assume is her favorite restaurant, a Chinese place. The kit included a menu, chopsticks, sauces, a bunch of fortune cookies and a pen! The cookies are, of course, gone by now, but I’ll think of April whenever I write with that pen.
Day 3 brought a Christmas-themed box of Life Savers gummies, which was awesome since gummies are my favorite candy! They were delicious!
Day 4 was wrapped in the shape of candy, so I just knew something great was inside and yes, I found a white mug, personalized with my name, the drawing of a Christmas tree and some good wishes from April!
This is my favorite gift so far and I love how a relatively simple white mug can become something much more important with a little creativity.

Yup, I’ve been a loyal patron of the restaurant since I moved back here in 2000–and I bring one of their pens to use at work every night. 🙂
Lifesavers are a Christmas tradition in my husband’s family. His grandmother gives a box to each of her grand and great grandchildren every year.
And so happy you like the mug!
I thought so. Well, I love Chinese food and everything on the menu seems delicious!
Oh, that is a great tradition! I wouldn’t mind getting gummies every Christmas! haha
And yes, I loved it and have already used it 🙂

I love how April used the Christmas-themed Superman wrapping paper 😀
Chinese restaurant fortune cookies ALWAYS crack me up!!! Did you have fun reading the “fortunes”?
THAT MUG IS SO SPECIAL…… You are going to remember this swap for a long, long time, I bet.
Looks pretty neat, huh?
Yes, of course. That’s even better than the delicious cookie 😉
And I definitely will!
