Happy holidays friends. It’s pretty amazing how quickly this December has been going by but I guess that’s every holiday season.
This year I had the pleasure of celebrating in an extra special way with a group of pretty amazing ladies. While it would have been amazing to have an actual holiday party, the next best thing was to host a Secret Santa through #BGBCommunity.
If you’re slightly confused, totally ok. Allow me to explain. #BGBCommunity stands for Bloggers Gonna Blog. It started as a small Facebook group last April with a couple bloggers I wanted to keep in touch with regularly. We share blogging advice, ask questions and generally support each other through the highs and lows of blogging (because trust me you need someone to celebrate with you when a post goes viral and someone to cry with you when your site has technical issues, scary stuff people.) As the group grew, we began doing Foodie Swaps, which was essentially a food-filled care package to another member of the group.
For the holiday season, we wanted to (ginger)spice things up and do a secret santa. Each blogger who wanted to participate, sent a special gift to another blogger and received a gift from a different blogger. Not only is it fun to give and get gifts from a fellow blogger, but it’s been a great way to get to know some rad ladies whose blogs you know and love.
What I Got from my Secret Santa
Today I’m sharing what the lovely Erin from the Almond Eater got me! Side note: Erin seriously rocks. Her photos are incredible and her posts always crack me up. I’ve had the biggest blog crush on her for over a year, it’s been so fun getting to know her and so many amazing ladies this year through BGB.
How adorable is this squirrel?! Also, I cracked up when I pulled a fuzzy “G” out of the box. This bad boy is getting hung up all year.
Not sure if Erin read my post about my favorite food props but I wrote about different cloth napkins twice sooo she totally gets it.
Small white bowl
As a food blogger you can literally never have too many bowls. Also, white makes everything look good. I can already see a bounty of granola spilling out of this bad boy.
Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter
Sooo I literally just wrote a post about how Justin’s Vanilla Almond Butter is on my coveted top 4 Almond Butters. Yeah, did I already mention how Erin just gets it?
Thank you so much Erin, you totally nailed it.
If you’re curious to see what I sent I had Kellen from acupofkellen.com & Emily from myhealthyishlife.com. To see more fantastic gift reveals, what bloggers give to bloggers, check out all the links below!
