As per usual, i will love whatever my SS chooses for me.  Having a gift i have no idea about is fantastic.

But,

- I am a bit of a geek.  I like Pokemon, Harry Potter, Dr Who, Star Trek, and dragons!
- I drink tea (all types), coffee, and i've learnt the importance of alcohol the last few months.
- I have recently been promoted (office manager!!), and now have my own desk that i'm still trying to make my own.

I think that's about it!

Thanks SS

I love anything to do with snowflakes as I associate them with my son.

I love coffee and have a machine which grinds coffee fresh.
I love pokemon go. I reckon I would just love an iTunes or Google play voucher to blow on that! (I have two phones and two accounts.)
I love all the Starbucks Christmas coffee mugs! I honestly can't choose just one.

I hope that's enough ideas to go on.

Dislike
Potions and lotions. I get enough of them from other at Christmas
I'm not an accessories. Dont really wear jewellery.
Knicknaks as such I don't have the space to display them.

Edited to add dislikes

Likes and ‘about me’

Books and reading
stationary
fave colour is orange
coffee
we go camping every so often
Ecofriendly (not mugs, have too many now)
Christmas decorations and things
Colourful jewelry (esp. earrings)  
Love cheese and chutneys and olives and pate and all delish things you’d find with these on a tasting plate




Dislikes

Soaps, body products- as I have quite specific tastes
Knick knacks and decorative things (except for Xmas things)
Overly ‘girly’ stuff, sparkly and such
Chocolate (ok don’t dislike it entirely but it’s wasted on me as a present, barely eat it)

Thanks Secret Santa! It’s one of my fave things each year to unwrap my EB present. Love this community
