By Rhian Cahill

Yep, it’s that time of year again and if you’re like me you’re wondering where the hell the last year went. I swear it was just yesterday I was worrying about what to buy people for  Christmas. Each year it gets harder and harder to think of things to get those I love and to be honest, I’d quite happily just hand out gift cards but Mr.C is one of those people who don’t like that AT ALL! So we trudge around the shops, racking our brains and rummaging through store after store looking for the perfect gifts. *sigh*

Anyway, this got me thinking about presents. Ones I’ve given, ones I’ve received and ones I’ve wished for so today I’m going to do Top Five Gifts lists. Of course it all ties in with my Christmas novellas, Secret Santa and Christmas Wishes.

Top Five Gifts Received –
1. Books!
2. Seasons 1 to 6 of Bones
3. Everything my kids have ever given me. 🙂
4. Marvin the Martian USB
5. Books! 🙂

Top Five Gifts Given –
1. The belief in Santa to our kids
2. Huge over-flowing Santa sacks to the kids each year
3. The trip to Disneyland we took the kids on
4. A picture of our kids with Santa every year since the first was born
5. All the ‘Santa’ gifts to our kids over the years

Top Five Gifts Wished For –
1. A new laptop
2. A new kitchen
3. Holiday in Hawaii
4. A white Christmas (December is summer down under)
5. Many more Christmas days with my kids

Rhian Cahill is the alter ego of a stay-at-home mother of four. With motherly duties rapidly dwindling Rhian is able to make use of the fertile imagination she used to keep herself sane for all those years of slavery. Having spent some years living overseas and visiting tropical climates has helped inspire some steamy stories. Multi-published in erotic romance and contemporary romance, Rhian, with the help of Mr. Muse, spends her days and nights writing.

When not glued to the keyboard you’ll find her book in hand avoiding any and all housework. For more on Rhian visit her website or you can contact her at or connect on Twitter – or Facebook – or you can download Rhian’s free app from the iTunes or Google Play stores.

    I love a combination of one from Top 5 Gifts Received (BOOKS!) and four from Top Five Gifts Wished For (A Lap Top so I don’t have to wrangle my husband’s out of his hands), Many More Christmas Days with my “kids” (my sons and their families and spending the most time with my precious grandchildren), a new kitchen (preferable in a state that didn’t have snow), which leaves me also having on the list finally being able to move to a state that doesn’t GET SNOW!

    • Where we live it doesn’t snow but I’ve always wanted to experience a white Christmas. We’re usually in swimmers jumping in the pool in an attempt to cool down. lol
