What did you sneakily buy for yourself?

We exchange gifts as normal, but I think most people in the middle of the Christmas shopping end up taking advantage of a deal or popping in something as part of a 3 for 2. You may not be wrapping it up, but it's your gift all the same.

I got:

- Pyjama bottoms from New Look
- A Clinique skincare trio set
- A La Roche Posay toner, to make up the order to get free delivery
- Good quality boot socks
- Peasant blouse in Hollister sale
- Will probably get a diary and calendar in the new year sales.

How about you?

i have overlooked myself for the past 5 and a half years when DS was born and tend to buy for everyone but me. So nothing is the answer, I really need to sort myself out. When i do this is the golden question, OH works every wkd. There's always next year she says.

Enjoy your gifts !

Loads blush, I don't shop often and so when I went Christmas shopping I saw lots of things I liked for myself. A handmade necklace, three sweaters, a couple of ceramic things for the house (I went to an artisan fair type thing). I am sure there is more - good job I don't have a shopping habit tbh.

DS has promised me a present fgrin , I know he won't physically go out and buy it for me, so I'll need to look out for something...

I finished Christmas shopping a few weeks ago so this week I treated myself to the soap and glory case and also a full spectrum night vision go pro for ghost investigations (my hobby)

A friend was selling a brand new and sealed kindle in box as she's a bit skint. Dd has mine, I haven't seen it for weeks and pribably won't for a while. So it made sense to buy it! Had a little money left over and I rarely get anything for myself these days. It arrived yesterday so naturally I ordered some kindle books to read.... Spectacles by Sue Perkins and Inferno by Dan Brown so far! Been curled up in bed for the last 2 hours...bliss...

I nearly (sooo nearly) bought a velvet scarf from H&M , but it looked a bit like a curtain tie-back...... well on anyone else, it'd be a lovely velvet dandy accessory. On me, soft furnishing fblush

Sonic Screwdriver (in silver, on a long chain).

A little leather across the body bag from a Christmas market.
A lovely soft grey jumper from Asda

Actually haven't been too bad this year! There's still time though.

Humm, very indulgently bought myself a handbag as I was told that DP wouldn't be getting me a present for Christmas Day itself. I have been lusting after said bag for ages, so decided just to buy it for myself. Trouble is, it's due to be delivered on Tuesday and I will have to not open it and save the packaging to wait until Christmas Day (& then explain to the rest of my family that no, I actually bought it for myself)

MarsBarsAreShrinking Sun 18-Dec-16 23:15:29

Nothing yet but I am planning on buying myself a rather expensive bag when the Boxing Day sale starts online fgrin

SpornStar Sun 18-Dec-16 23:22:55

An Apple Watch and 3 framed prints.

SpornStar Sun 18-Dec-16 23:24:16

Oops, posted too soon.

I never really get presents as apparently I'm hard to buy for hmm so I buy what I want myself.

Bubbinsmakesthree Sun 18-Dec-16 23:27:45

A Christmas jumper and a bottle of Nuxe Oil.
