Christmas Present for Yourself

Ask a Question

Apart from practical things, donating to charity and treating the family etc, if someone gave you £500 to fritter away as you wanted, on yourself, what would you buy? Shoes, make up, technology?

Buying for myself, hm, I don't really do that except for food, snacks and a few old PC games I played as a child.

However, I have been buying stuff to resell, thing is, 2020 hasn't been a good year so I'll just have to delay it.

Not a good time for small business owners or mid, they tell you to close and you must obey.

PhilipMarc Yes, but there is a reason behind it.

My wife has a small business and the 2nd lockdown in Wales has absolutely killed it. And as it hasn't been running for over a year, we don't get any help from the government.

We're right in the poo at the moment, but if it stops people from dying from Covid-19, we don't feel so bad.

TheChimp this is so sad for you... and you still think of others... bless you, not many lovely people these days, it’s weird that the very first lockdown, everyone LOVED and HELPED each other..... and now it looks like people are arguing, fighting, hating each other now.... didn’t last long did it! ***

It’s been a terrible year .... I hope your business picks up. Xxxxxx

"the very first lockdown, everyone LOVED"

That's a bit like Stockholm Syndrome. For people who're always at home didn't feel any different, but for others it was house arrest. MandeeMayson

TheChimp It's a shame her business has suffered when you both put a lot of thought and effort into it. Chin up and smile, you have each other 🙂

TheChimp oh dear that’s awful. My daughter is in the same situation, not a shop but a business dealing with China. We’re just keeping our fingers crossed that it doesn’t go under but it’s heading that way.

I would put it away to hopefully put towards an holiday in 2021 or something fun like theatre, concert tickets when we are allowed to live our lives again 🙂

I think I would splash out on having my hair straightened (yuko) as it costs about £250+.

I would spend the rest on a new outfit.

I would get a new pair of winter boots, some new jeggings and some cozy pjs. I don't need anything else. I never buy things for myself. I would put the rest towards our savings for moving house.

The Dyson airwrap set. I really want it but so far have not been able to bring myself to spend so much on a hair set.

I would have to resist spending it on my 2 grandkids tbh.... but purely to spend on myself.... it would buy me a full set of Holbeinn Pencil Crayons and a set of FC Polychrome Pencil Crayons.... I spend a lot if time doing adult colouring.... I started it to help me relax and to be less stressed and it absolutely works.... Now it is also my hobby and those 2 sets are the creame de la creame of Pencil Crayons... xx
