Just because it is the season of giving doesn’t mean you can’t give to yourself! Sure, you may be spending a good chunk of change on gifts for your loved ones this season, but this is exactly why it doesn’t hurt to treat yourself to a few items that you just have to have. For some inspiration, here’s a gift guide on some things to gift yourself this year.
Now that we’re all home more, we have more time to get creative in the kitchen. So why not give yourself some fun cooking supplies that will inspire you to get creative? This could be anything from oven mitts and adorable aprons to Kevlar pots and pans, cute silicone pot holders and unique cookbooks. Silicone oven mitts are more durable than traditional oven mitts, so if you’re trying to perfect that sourdough, this might be the way to go. Or, you can go the full monty and replace all of your utensils with brand new kitchenware to make your kitchen feel more streamlined and organized. Plus, even when you’re not using them, you’ll still have some adorable kitchen accessories to look at.
You never need an excuse to buy lingerie, but why not take advantage of the end of the year promotions and clearance sales that are going on right now? With the lower prices giving you an excuse to buy, you can use this time to your advantage by purchasing underwire bras and panties that you wouldn’t normally try out. Items like demi bras, balconette bras, racerback sports bras, or underwire bras with plunging necklines that make amazing cleavage are all fun to try. With these new accessories, your self-confidence will soar.
There’s a lot of good that comes with having a decanter. Not only does it look pretty on the shelf, but a decanter also adds oxygen to the drink which enhances its taste. Alcohol decanters make pretty centerpieces, and they’re not too expensive so you can still splurge on your favorite bottle of whiskey, bourbon, or wine of your choice.
Is there someone special in your life that you would like to take everywhere with you? If so, consider getting a bracelet made from their handwriting! There are plenty of small businesses that can take a sentimental message from a card or a note and make it into gorgeous jewelry. This is an even better idea if you have suffered a loss this past year, so you will have a piece of your loved one with you at all times. Better yet, get a matching pair with your mom, sister, or best friend.
Have you adopted a furry friend and you have no idea what breed they are? Thanks to science, you can now tell the heritage of your pup via a dog DNA test! All these tests require is a quick cheek swab, and within a few weeks, you’ll get results back on what breed(s) are in their genetic markup. So basically, this is a gift for both you and them!
This is the gift that keeps on giving if you are a bookworm. We all have more time than ever to sit down and cozy up with a good book, so why not get a brand new book delivered to your door every month? It’ll give you something to look forward to, and you never know, you may discover some brand new authors and genres you never knew about before.
There are so many different types of coffee makers to choose from, so why not branch out and get a unique one for yourself? You can choose from a cold brew maker, a pour-over, and an Aeropress as just a few examples. No matter what you choose, you’ll have a great brew to look forward to.
