Are there things you like to have/use but you just won't buy for yourself?

I really enjoy GOOD body washes, like Oil of Olay and Dove. These body washes really are moisturizing for my skin but if I run out of the bottles I have, I just can't get myself to spend the extra money to buy a replacement. It's not like these are outrageously expensive, and I use a pouf with them, so a bottle lasts me a good 3 months. Instead, I go to the dollar store and buy a $1 bottle of something else that I enjoy the smell of, but I don't get as much moisturizing. However, if my husband decides he wants to buy me these body washes for my birthday or Christmas, I love it! I'm not sure why I do this, especially when I am so apt to spend money on other items. What items will you not buy for yourself?

If you want a good body wash, you might want to do what I do and buy Rainbath from Neutrogena in bulk (I get large bottles of it at Costco). I know that wasn't really your question though. I realized that mostly I do buy things I want for myself; the only exception might be body splashes, because I don't really need those, but I will use them if people buy them for me. I used to buy body washes from Bath and Body Works, but those were rather expensive and so I switched to the Rainbath. I still body butter from them though even though it's expensive because there is no better moisturizing lotion, as far as I am concerned, and the scents are really nice. But since I have veered off topic quite a bit, I guess I will conclude by saying I guess some things just seem like luxury items, even though they aren't all that expensive. Or maybe some things seem like gifts rather than things you buy for yourself.
