I haven't had a Christmas present in years. Even when ex was here he never bothered so this year I will be purchasing the new Bill Brysonbook and a perfume of my choice, probably this one.

Anyone else? smile

I will be buying myself two bedside units. I'm trying to make my bedroom beautiful. On a tight budget. grin
So they may be second hand that I will paint.. Or possibly Ikea. That's what I want though smile

I might buy myself a ring as I feel naked without one lol! And all of my rings were bought by exh so don't want to wear them.

Or I might just put some money into my boob job fund ;)

Getting my hair coloured professionally instead of doing it myself.

an expensive handbag - since my ex walked out, I buy one on my birthday and one at Xmas. I have a nice little selection now (before I only bought the cheapest one possible and used it till it had a hole in it) and it's something just for me. I always set a budget according to how things are, but it's always a handbag even if I have to get one with a red label reduction at TK Maxx!

What a nice idea grin

a collection of handbags sounds a lovely idea!

i think i might also look for a ring. i have an idea of one i want - silver and blue topaz, and have seen some lovely ones online. i want one for my ring finger on my right hand.

I think I will buy myself a nice chunky silver ring.

Yes, a scent of my choice in a stocking, hung up beside the children's.

I think it's easy to just not bother when you've no one to do it for you but why should we not have something nice even if its from ourselves smile?

Zoe6789 Sat 28-Sep-13 08:26:32

I agree, it took me years to see that. When I was Christmas shopping I'd see things I'd like and if I bought them I'd feel guilty. If that happens this year I will wrap them up! 'From the Universe to Me'

I wish I could 'like' comments on here smile

We all deserve presents at Christmas, and maybe a little wine ;)

Like the handbag idea smile or perhaps some jewellery to my taste that I will wear smile

After smear tests I reward myself with a handbag. That is my tradition. It gets me through it. It forces me to book one. I only go about once every three and a half years. The last time I'd left it about five, and I'd become a little phobic about it. So I told myself after I'd been I would get a leather fossil handbag. I was true to my word.

Zoe6789 Sat 28-Sep-13 15:43:13

ps, that is nothing to do with being single of course! and when I say tradition, I mean I've done it once and I plan to do it again.

HowardTJMoon Sat 28-Sep-13 15:48:58

I always do this. I think this year Santa will be bringing me a new electric screwdriver. And maybe aDVD.

DumDum32 Sat 28-Sep-13 15:56:29

I'm due an upgrade on my phone next month but will be holding out for xmas deals. will be treating myself to the new iphone (currently have the samsung S3) smile plus a new handbag & lots of make up. not that I go out a lot but when I do I like to make a little bit of effort. although nothing looks good on my fat body anymore sad

A board game.

Maybe a dvd.

Definitely some chocolate.

farrowandbawl Sat 28-Sep-13 17:36:22

I'm going to buy myself a ring (if I have the money).

A really nice one, one that I like.

mammadiggingdeep Sat 28-Sep-13 19:17:57

Great idea!!! smile xx

mammadiggingdeep Sat 28-Sep-13 19:18:41

Some new ugg boots I think smile

KatyPutTheCuttleOn Sat 28-Sep-13 19:20:54

The new Bill Bryson book will be what I buy as well.

shellbot Sat 28-Sep-13 19:36:18

I'm fancy buying a necklace that I can have engraved with my two son's names. Something like this:

or

I haven't decided exactly which one yet.

I got myself a chemical face peel-best £60 I've spent in ages, my skin feels amazing
