I recently saw Jody’s post regarding buying an expensive brand of luggage (a Louis Vuitton ) for herself this Christmas, and I can’t help but agree with her that it is indeed a very damn nice Christmas gift for one’s self.
Actually, I’ve been doing this kind of gift-giving for myself… or probably others will call it self-reward wherein I buy an item that I’ve been eyeing (read: craving ) for the longest time. Something illogical, expensive lavish treat or something you think as a reward-satisfying item that you’ve earned and saved up for some time. And, what would be the perfect timing to get this? Christmas time!
My take on this, I don’t see any harm on rewarding thyself. And in fact, I do encourage people to get something really special and reward-satisfying gift for themselves during Christmas. It’s like a year-end bonus, Santa’s Christmas gift or a grand prize rolled into one for working real hard for the year. It’s more of saying thank you to one’s self for being strong, healthy and simply being happy. A personal gift for being a loving wife, good mother, caring daughter, kind sister and a friend to others.
Well, enough of my justifications, lol.
So, what do I plan to get myself for this Christmas? I want to reward myself with ONE of the lavish treat candies below: ( I am realistic, I can afford to get one item only!)
1. Philip Stein Teslar watch
I am a sucker for watches! Can't stop buying them... I love this watch because of its cool shape on my wrist! :) and for health reasons na din :)
2. A very nice LV bag
I go for the traditional bucket-style. I love shoulder-type bags. Stylish and convenient since I am always on the go :) It looks good on jeans also, my usual get up!
I've wanted to get this bag for I think more than 2 years now. But, with the house construction and other unnecessary expenses, I've diverted my plan to other essential must-buys! Hopefully, this year... pwede na! :)
3. Yellow gold charm bracelets
I love jewelry! I love bracelet with lucky charms or dangles. I’ve outgrown my love for white gold. Yellow gold bracelets will be quite nice addition to my collection.
Probably like these items below...but yellow gold.
Hmmm... choices, choices, choices. Need to make-up my mind soon. Hehehe! For the meantime, dagdag ipon ulit to buy my reward! :)
Oh by the way, Jody was right…. These are all investments, darling! :)
