Upon checking the discussions here in mylot. I often encounter the questions on what are the things we are going to give our love ones and the people around us. I just thought that, don't you think it is also the best time that we give something special to ourselves? We have work hard for our money and I think it is just right that we give ourselves a gift this season. So, have you thought about this? Please share what you plan to buy for yourself this Christmas.

Hi Larish :) Thank you for bringing this subject up! never thought of getting myself a gift actually. Like what the others have said, we always put others before us.... hmm... i suppose the gift i wan to get for myself for christmas would be a romantic holiday for my husband and myself. Have not done that in ages! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!

That is a very unselfish love that you have. Your gift to yourself still includes your husband. I agree with you, a holiday with your husband will be a great give, not only to yourself but to your husband as well.

If I had enough money, I would buy myself some nice clothes. I need some nice interview, special occasion clothes, seeing as I've lost a little weight and many of my old good clothes are sagging on my body now. Sadly I don't have enough money to do that, at least not know. Hopefully soon I will.

Haven't given a thought about Christmas because I buy myself gifts anytime, no need to wait for a special occasion. for example, last week, I bought myself 7 pieces of clothes though I don't need them at all. Shopping is a terrific reward for girls.

Ahhh yessss - you're right. I haven't even thought about that. I've been thinking about everyone else though and how to maximize my money and pinch that penny. I don't wanna go broke this Christmas - but I still wanna give gifts to people. So no, I haven't thought about what I should give to myself. Maybe I'll think about it later - when I figure that I have enough money.

You are so right. I am also at the moment where I have to budget my money for all the gifts that I have to buy. This is the reason why I just wanted a new wallet this Christmas. I just want to have a share on my budget and a new wallet won't hurt that much on the budget for the gifts. Thank you for sharing your thoughts on this.

I think I need to buy my self a new brand car. I always have this old box type car that almost keep on having problems. It is almost taking most of my time trying to repair it. So I guess, having a brand new car would be the perfect gift to give for myself.

I am going to give myself some new clothes. I went and put alot of clothes on layaway for my husband and kids. I also put some clothes for myself in there. I have not bought clothing for myself in awhile. I deserve it and its the best way to do it...layaway.

You are right, you definitely deserve new clothes. Come to think of it, I haven't also bought a new clothes these past two years. But I really want to buy myself a new wallet this season. Maybe new clothes will just be part of my wish list for now. lol.

Hi larish: I love to share some gifts with my lovely family but i love myself too. Lol. XD. So i'll never forget to give myself a gift these days. This year i'll buy The Singles Collection Deluxe edition by Britney Spears and I'll else give myself her For The Record DVD. Even if i know what are my "gifts about" i'll love when i buy then on amazon and when they arrive home. Sounds like a funny question but that's what i do and seems that you do it too. So, what will you give yourself this christmas larish? Have a nice day.

My gift to myself isn't exactly a Christmas present, but an after Christmas present. A large group of friends are planning a trip to Las Vegas in February. I took a long time to actually commit to going because money has been so tight. But, I am fortunate to have a stable job, and I have been working alot of extra hours, so I decided that by the time that trip rolls around, I'm going to need to get away for a few days, just to re-energize. Then it will be back to working as much as possible.

I dn't have much money this Christmas so I'm not gonna buy anything expensive this time. But I still want to be good to myself. I will cook myself a big meal using my family's money. LOL!!! We always prepare a big meal on Christmas Eve.

I will probably buy myself a new DVD and I think that it would more then likely be the latest Adam Sandler on, Funny People. Although I could probably find about another 20 to buy as I love watching films so buy my favourite ones to watch other and other again. Other then that I have got my eye on the new Marc Jacobs perfume, Lola, but I just cannot afford it right now. So I got to either get saving or hope that someone buys it for me.

For Christmas, I will buy myself some new clothes and a pair of shoes for office and for casual use. Other than that, I will save my extra money for investments.
