Re: LAST GIFT YOU BOUGHT YOURSELF?

My birthday is Christmas Eve and I used to do that most years.  But still have not bought anything for my 50th and I will be 55 this year.  I shopped around for some black diamonds but just did not ever find any that I really liked.  Then I decided I did not have to buy right at the birthday time but could take my time.   By now time is up.

When I turned 49 was my last gift for Birthday/Christmas and it was a Brahmin handbag.   I just do not feel the need anymore like I did when I was younger.

Re: LAST GIFT YOU BOUGHT YOURSELF?

Gee wiz, that's a tough question for me.  When I think of a "gift" for myself, its usually something of wishful thinking that because of expense I normally would not consider purchasing.  

 

I think the last thing was a MacBook Pro.  I already have one, but it was starting to have issues.   I have plenty of things on my wishlist but DH has been hinting he would like a new SUV.

Re: LAST GIFT YOU BOUGHT YOURSELF?

Yes I do for my birthday and sometimes Christmas. From time to time I will treat myself.

 

It was just our anniversary and I found 2 beautiful lamps for our den and I purchased them...especially because the manufacturer has gone out of business and I will not have another opportunity to buy them.

Re: LAST GIFT YOU BOUGHT YOURSELF?

I have for years bought myself special things I wanted for my b/d and Xmas, for the simple reason that many years I would have otherwise received nothing. This last b/d I bought myself a Coach leather bag on a whim. Never spent that much on a handbag before. Glad I did.

 

My next "present to me" is going to be very late Xmas and very early b/d, as I'll go for a new iPad in Spring.

@JustJazzmom- thanks for posting about the Urban Decay 20% off. I just went on and ordered a Christmas gift. Another one done!


Why is it, when I have a 50/50 guess at something, I'm always 100% wrong?
