We had a self gifting thread last year, so I thought it would be nice to have one this year too.

I am definitely getting myself a chocolate orange. Had a voucher from John Lewis and bought some tea towels and bottle opener wine

I unexpectedly got £100 of vouchers today so a lovely windfall! Not sire what to get myself yet.

forgot to add. Dd is 6 and I doubt her dad will take her to get me anything, might get her to choose me a new lipstick from her! or maybe can get me the chocolate orange!

I crochet so I am treating myself to a yarn club every month through next year surprise yarn will turn up with a pattern which will by the end of the year make a lovely merino blanket. I know each month with be four shades of he same colour and the overall effect will be rainbow.

I bought myself a set of spanners at aldi a bit ago that is to be my christmas present. I may buy a black and decker workmate. I will also probably need a new tool box. fblush ex has one half full tool box.. I may have ermm 5 of various sizes and for different things. (painting, carpentry tools, knee pads from when I insulated the loft, )

I'm going to buy some Pip Studio crockery. Inspired by the collection thread, I've decided I'm going to spend some money each month on something just t make me smile

I normally get myself a chocolate orange but that's delivered by Rudolph on the 24th when the children are in the bath and then we have a snuggle up on the sofa and eat it before bed.

I don't normally get myself anything but ordered a chromecast cast from amazon yesterday as it was almost half price and I tend to watch things online these days.

Yes, a chocolate orange sounds good.

And a turkey. Just for me. My kids hate it but I love it.

New running shoes ready or my new year's resolution!

A miniature single malt and a small box of marrons glace. Bliss... (just need the peace and quiet to enjoy them!) smile

Oh I love Pip Studio bippity - I have two of their bedding sets, one as my present last Xmas and the other for my birthday this year!

I am thinking handbags for Xmas! Probably Radley sale...or if I can find something nice in TK Maxx, that will also do....would love an Orla Kiely if I can find one at a half decent price (unlikely...I keep looking!)

mrsallergy Chromecast is amazing I love mine!

Today I bought myself a blazer and a dress from jaeger outlet so that's me done now. Totally overspent...ooops. Never mind, haven't had anything for ages

I'm toying with buying a proper coffee machine. My caffetier just isn't cutting it anymore & I want nice coffee in the morning without the hanging about waiting for the right time to pour. Seen one for £40 in tesco. If I get some vouchers for xmas I might go a bit higher & splash out on a really fancy one smile

I'm treating myself and my son to a holiday in spring.

mrsallergy Sat 29-Nov-14 18:13:06

As of today I've added a bar of toblerone to my chocolate orange and chromecast smile

mrsallergy Sat 29-Nov-14 18:14:25
