Yesterday was my 19th birthday and I was lucky enough to receive gifts from some close friends and family members. I love reading blog posts about what people receive for their birthdays, so I thought I would share my gifts too.
Of course, I am not trying to brag in any way, the purpose of this blog post is simply to entertain my readers 🙂
For my birthday, my parents kindly offered to pay half the cost of a DSLR camera as my present. This was very exciting for me as I am now able to take better quality photos for Chloe Plus Coffee!
The camera I chose was the Canon EOS Rebel T5i*, as Best Buy had a nice package deal for this camera.
The Canon Rebel T5i comes with an 18-55mm lens, but the Best Buy deal also included a 75-300mm lens*, as well as a Platinum Multi-Coated UV Filter.
I also purchased a Canon camera bag to hold the camera and its accessories. I splurged a bit on this one, but it was fairly bigger than the other bags and also came with an extra camera battery.
The bag has removable velcro dividers, to help organize storage of the camera, lenses, extra batteries and other accessories. There are also smaller pockets inside to hold memory cards.
I am very grateful to my parents for helping me purchase this incredible camera, I know I will put it to good use. It will definitely come in handy on our upcoming family road trip.
One of my family friends sent me this beautiful makeup bag set* from Zoella Beauty. I have watched Zoella on YouTube for years, so I’m excited to own a product from her beauty line.
The set includes three bags in various sizes. All three bags are zippered, and the largest one is completely transparent.
Lastly, my wonderful boyfriend bought me this gorgeous Kate Spade agenda*. He said he remembered me pointing it out on a trip to Chapters, which I thought was really sweet 🙂
I love using an agenda during the school year to keep my assignments and activities organized.
I am very lucky to have received these gifts from my family and friends, but more importantly, I am lucky to have these loving and caring people in my life each and every day.
You can’t see them well in this picture, but my parents also bought me large number balloons so that I could take pictures with my friends 😀
What month is your birthday? I’d love to hear what gifts you received for your most recent birthday! Let me know in the comments 🙂
