Broke and Bookish Secret Santa 2016

I have never had so much fun with a Secret Santa swap as I have with The Broke and the Bookish blog's gift exchange. This was my second year participating and once again I had a fantastic time! I enjoyed shopping for my recipient and I got a wonderful box of goodies from my Secret Santa. It's so nice to give and receive stuff when you have a shared love of books!


My Secret Santa was Carrie, @onebookishmom, and I was absolutely thrilled with all the goodies she included for me -- two historical fiction novels I've been meaning to read for ages, a skein of my favorite yarn in my favorite color plus a reusable bag from a local knitting shop, a Jon Snow Funko Pop (only my second Funko!) and some delicious mint chocolates. It's like she knows me so well even though we've never met! Also, we clearly share a love of owls -- look at that adorable wrapping paper!


My recipient this year was Amy from Bookzilla, and I had such fun putting together her package! Of course I included some Hawaii goodies (a few more than the picture shows), and since she's a Jane Austen fan I thought these socks, which say "I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading," would be right up her alley! I got the bookmarks from the Etsy shop Juniper and Ivy -- and I confess that I also ordered a "For Fox Sake" one for myself. ;)

 I'm already looking forward to next year's bookish Secret Santa -- and if you haven't joined in yet, you should most definitely keep it in mind next November when sign-ups roll around! Merry Christmas, fellow bookworms!


  1. I love the TBTB Secret Santa too!! You look like you got some great things from your SS and picked out awesome things for your person. I am excited for next year already too!

  2. I need to get in on this secret Santa next year, you got some really cool stuff and my family just rolls their eyes at me for wanting bookish things so I never get them. :( Secret Santa with bookish people are the only way I get cool :)

  3. This looks like such fun. Maybe next year!

  4. The package you sent looked brilliant, as did the one you received. I had so much fun with TBTB Secret Santa - I'll definitely be doing it again next year!


Thanks for stopping by! Comments make my day, and I read and appreciate every single one!
