I arrived home from work after a particularly tiring day with a university essay to be completed looming that night. It was an absolute joy to find my curiosity box waiting for me.
It was beautifully wrapped and was a welcome early Christmas present. Each present was intricately wrapped, all co-ordinated and made me feel like a child on Christmas morning.
The first present I opened, I have actually been talking about for ages, dropping hints and hoping I might well receive some at Christmas, so it was a delight to get some Crabtree and Evelyn hand cream.
It is funny how someone you have never met, can pick gifts that meet your interests and likes so well.
I got an assortment of other gifts including a lovely necklace pendant, crayons, postcards, magnet and notebook. I loved the little macaroon book, they are the one sweet that I love to see in patisseries and cafes and reminds me of trips to Paris. Finally I received some bulbs, such a great idea and a real reminder of my curiosity box friend. I have been trying to sort out my garden and get it ready for spring, so I am looking forward to putting the bulbs in just after Christmas and hopefully watching them grow.
Thank you so much for such lovely gifts and for making Christmas come early."
