I've bought myself a nice cashmere cardigan and also have my eye on the jigsaw wrap one- will see if they reduce it before Christmas
Am also looking at treating myself to the Liberty Beauty advent calendar

Oohh, sorry
I misunderstood
These are Christmas presents I buy for myself from me
I always buy myself something I really want

I have no list for pressies from others
Always ask for surprises

That sounds lovely Nana! I like to buy my presents as not much chance of a surprise around here!

Any ideas? Particularly for mid range bath products.

Bodum coffee cup - keeps warm for ages

Chocolate - hotel chocolat is good value for quality, widely available.

Bath products - what sort of stuff? Budget?

I do this too as a single parent we Elf on the Shelf and DD thinks the Elf delivers my presents lol.

Some new books I've been after, nice box of chocolate, I want some new boots this year so perhaps them. Generally things I actually want/need but wouldn't get round to buying myself.

Thank you! I will have a look at the coffee cup now.

Not a huge fan of bath bombs so bubble or oil for the bath. Under £20

That's really cute that the Elf delivers your presents smile

Crabtree and Evelyn are good quality and lovely smells in relation to price (particularly if you catch their frequent sales - one's on now).

Korres is also nice.

For splashing out, Ortigia is beautifully displayed and not ridiculously priced. Above the £20 limit though.

Another vote for bodum and if you are a coffee fan then do a cafetière lid too!!

I've asked for some Korean face masks, a comfy pair of slippers, a meal planner and nice pen.

Easily pleased me grin

I got a contigo flask last Christmas and I love it.
I really like that champneys range from Boots

NotAMammy Sat 01-Oct-16 15:03:13

Oh any recommendations on where to get the Korean facemasks?

I love lush bubble bars, but I have to buy lush stuff weeks in advance of actual Christmas cause the shop gets far too busy.
Molton Brown stuff is gorgeous too, although worth checking if you have an outlet near you as they are quite pricey.

I've seen another presents for me thread on the Christmas board a while back, might be worth having a look. I add things to an amazon wish list during the year and send it to hubby when it comes close to Christmas or my birthday. It has everything from coats to a clarisonic to a candle and a lot of book options. I can also buy from it if I have money to treat myself.

I'd also like some nice prints for my office at work. Maybe some luxe loungewear so I could feel a bit more Olivia Pope in the evenings.

I've asked for a hobby light because my corner is quite dark for sewing and I think this is a bit niche but I'd also like some competition Kettlebells.

Bought some amazing bath salts in tk maxx recently called ina they are lush.

Freco010 Sun 02-Oct-16 07:15:33

I would love to know where the Korean face masks are from too!

Freco010 Sun 02-Oct-16 07:17:31

The bubble bars look great, does anyone know if they leave a residue in the bath afterwards like bath bombs?

For bath products- keep an eye out for the Star buy in Boots. They are fantastic. Every year I treat myself to the Soap and Glory star buy-over £70 of products for £35. I've seen them to Ted Baker (more make up than bath bits), Champney etc. There's a new star buy every week

Another vote for the Contigo flask. They keep hot for hours! I make my coffee at 730 am and it is still hot at 12!
