I don’t know about you guys, but I truly do NOT splurge on myself all that often. Yes, I have a few high end beauty products that I love to buy quarterly, and yes, I keep my hair colored regularly. But I don’t get manicures, I hardly get pedicures. I don’t get massages. I don’t go to the chiropractor. I don’t have a gym membership. I have no name brand purses. Heck, I still have a hard time paying full price for an item for myself, even one I love. And the 3 times I had Botox, it was for my birthday present. So, needless to say, I really appreciate when people purchase gifts for me. This is just one of the many reasons I love Christmas.

I, of course, also love giving Christmas presents, but receiving them is huge part of the fun! My birthday is in November, and Christmas falls just a month later, so that means, I have to put out all my gift wishes out into the Universe in these two months, and hope that maybe “Santa” brings me an overpriced pair of jeans or boots, that I’ve been hoping for all year. 😆

Maybe you or your spouse splurge on yourself all the time, and you are solely focused on giving at Christmas time, OR maybe your story is like mine and you love that you can finally get a few nice things at Christmas. IF your story is like mine, the first gift guide I made is really perfect for you. I rounded up, my most favorite items that I actually own and use all the time, that I’d buy again in a hot minute, and give tacit endorsements too. That way if you can only pick a few things, you know these ones have two thumbs up from me!!
