I like to buy a little gift for myself. Usually a book. Do other mums buy little gifts for themselves?

  • I have started doing this in the last 5 years, not sure how it started but after surviving another year of kids, dramas at whatever else life throws my way I feel I deserve a little treat. It might be a book, or a nice bottle of wine or Bailey’s. Once I purchased a skincare pack online from Empassion Natural and it was lovely.

  • No I have never thought to do this but it sounds lovely thanks for this

  • yes I always buy something for myself – my kids usually buy me something small but I make sure I buy myself something as well as I generally don’t spend money on me during the year

  • YEP! Since I’m the one that buys everyone’s presents I figure I deserve one too!

  • I always buy gifts before Xmas for everyone else then I go for the NY sales for myself afterwards. That is more practical and budget friendly .

  • Not exactly, but I usually wind up earmarking something to pick up in the sales…

  • It’s always nice to spoil yourself, so if you have some spare cash then why not!

  • I usually end up buying my own gifts so in a way yes!

  • of course! we all deserve a little something for ourselves

  • So glad you are treating yourself becstalou. Books expand horizons – so a wonderful Christmas treat! :)

  • I don’t usually but I love the idea off to buy myself a book now.

  • Thanks for the answers mums! So glad that other mums indulge in buying presents for themselves too! Time to add to my collection of books!

  • Absolutely!perfect reason to buy yourself something expensive but l also buy gifts for myself any time of the year

  • I always buy a little gift for myself not just at Christmas time and if it’s an item
    On clearance like a dress,a watch makeup or fragrance it would be a bonus

  • No l don’t but maybe a new outfit to wear on the day!
