Lifecruiser Christmas gift wrapped as a Diary Dagbok

I hope Christmas has been filled with joy and laughter for all of you my dear cruisers :lol:

Curious of what a Swede does buy as Christmas gifts? Well, you might not call me and Mr Lifecruiser ordinary Swedes, since we’re a bit crazy, but some hints this might give you. *giggles*

The most joyful with Christmas gifts for me is not only to give them, but also the wrapping of them! I just love to create the best possible wrappings! For me it’s my kind of art.

So the Christmas gifts in the post below this one wasn’t for myself. It was the gifts that I wrapped for Mr Lifecruiser daughter Jane. I had a bit x-tra fun with them this year…

The Christmas gift in the top photo of this post is my own favorite, wrapped looking like a Diary (Dagbok in Swedish) and I couldn’t resist to put the word Dagbok there too, just to mislead her what’s in there. No, it was not a Diary, but she did get one – in another gift!

In this one it was a very glamorous glitter eyeliner and eyeshadow, very useful at the New Year Eve wouldn’t you say? She also did get a Mascara from Kanebo called 38 degrees, which means that you can only clean it off in 38 degrees of hot water, nothing else will do, so you’re safe from the rain – or tears…

She also did get a bigger gift – look at the silvery box in the photo – very elegant isn’t it? Well, haven’t your mother told you that the appearances are deceptive? *giggles*

Inside there was a shoebox, but no shoes in the box, just a little sack tied up with a silver string and inside that little sack were a little deck of cards with old moviestars, very retro! *giggles*

There were also Christmas tree ornaments golden hearts which belongs to a Christmas Collection from Steninge Slott (Castle).

So what’s missing more then? Silver glittered candles with matching plates to put them on, to light up the winter darkness and have a cozy moment.

Oh, and what about the little red heart box? In there were other hearts in shape of a mobile jewelery. Youngsters dearest thing is the mobile phone nowadays, right?

What else do you buy to a young woman? Well, you can guess the content in the big red upright one? No? Champagne of course! Though not Dom Perignon, it was the second best: Moet Chandon.

…and what are you going to drink from? Orlando Hoetzel Champagne glasses from Ritzenhoff Collection of course. They were in the two red ones with the white fluffy feathers on.

I just love – no adore – all their Champagne glasses! They all show such wonderful creativity! Just have a look at all their other stuff too – AWESOME!

I can’t believe I’ve missed them before. Darn! Though I haven’t seen them here in Sweden before, just some of the Champagne glasses. I do hope that the rest of the collection shows up in our stores!

We did scare her a bit too. First inside the Christmas card, when she opened it a paper butterfly flew up from it making her almost shit in her pants (lol) and then a little joke box with balls jumping up from it when she opened it!

We must have some fun and laughter, right? *giggles*

Next post will tell you more about our Christmas so stay tuned…

    You’ve wrapped this story in very well in your way of telling it Capt’n. The anticipation, the preparation – half the fun it is to plan for the surprise and to make it more than just another gift. Its the thought that counts and of course a good champagne does not harm either :smile:

    Love your fun al laughter and looking forward to your next Xmas story!

    I love the Dagbook! I used to have a much smaller box like that for business cards … and lost it years ago while moving. It just looks so classy.
