    Mum straightening up and smiling when she saw her great grandson, followed by calendar with pictures of gransdon in each month and a plaque with a hand print and foot print of grandson.

    Me too me too me too!!!! Isn't it a beautifully produced book with its blue cloth cover and marker ribbon. sat up in bed reading it last night. I always love the presents from son2.

    I'm also very pleased with my Robert Welch cutlery. i chose the Arden range and will build up a collection but had enough to use for lunch

    Ooh that's exciting @lindenlea I didn't know there were Kitchen Diaries 2 and 3 - someone gave me the first one a few years ago and I love just touching it, never mind actually reading it! *Makes mental note to google the other two after lunch...

    Valentina by Valentino is a lovely perfume too @ValentinoRosssi.

    Happy Christmas @katycustard - it's been ages!

    I always feel blessed at Christmas as I can never think of anything I desperately want or need so I love all the thoughtful little gifts my children and friends come up with! The set of miniature Yankee candles is sweet and I really like 'proper' coffee, so the Whittard Coffees of the World Collection will keep me going for a while - but best of all was having three of my four children home and seeing them happy.

    Love the look of that cutlery lindenlea. It looks elegant but 'heavy' enough to last (I hate that cutlery which with the slightest hard pressure makes it bend;))

    Horror make-up from my child. Before Christmas, I'd told her the sob-story of how I'd asked Santa for it three years in a row but my mum said it was a waste of money. I thought it was a very thoughtful gift idea from a six year old.

    Did you use it yesterday? I'm imagining a zombie Christmas dinner in the Coffeekid household!

    Younger girl has bought me beautiful Baltic amber earrings and pendant.... it has all the shares of amber... butterscotch (which I lobe) green, and the usual 2 shades of brown :) There was also a silk scarf from travels toThailand, a bottle of Chateauneuf du Pape, and Jo Malone range of 5 perfumes :) Oh and £70+ of speciality cheeses!

    I got a Japanese cooking knife in damask steel from eldest son, though a better present was having him back from Japan for Christmas, he wasn't here last year.

    Another good/awful/weird present from him was a whole bright red candied squid on a stick, about 6" long that is eaten as a sweet, it's still in its packet.
