You probably have a list of 10+ people to buy for this holiday season, but you can’t forget about the most important person: you! Yes, it’s important to make sure the people you care for most feel extra loved and special around the holidays, but leaving yourself out of the picture is like forgetting a present for your best friend. If you’re anything like me, you’re quick to stock up on presents for your parents, your siblings, your partner, your best friends, maybe even your coworkers. But you rarely put in the effort to buy yourself something you truly desire.
Think about it: when was the last time you treated yourself to a gift around the holidays? Reward yourself for all the hard work you accomplished throughout the year. Whether it’s a much-needed self-care trip to the spa, a new pair of headphones you’ve had in your cart for a year, or a shopping spree all to yourself, gifting yourself this Christmas can come in the form of whatever makes you happy and joyful this time of year: experiences, gifts, vacation plans, nights out on the town. Seriously anything to take a load off around the busy holiday season. However, if you’re looking to give yourself something physical, I’ve got you. Gifts for yourself are just as important as gifts for your loved ones. Read on for the best gifts for yourself this holiday season, because your name should always be on your shopping list.
