Gift Ideas to Buy for Yourself This Holiday

victorias secret holiday

Traditionally, the holiday season focuses a lot on shopping for other people. You research, budget, and try to figure out exactly what will delight someone else when they get through ripping off your aesthetically pleasing wrapping paper. But, ask yourself: Why aren’t you on your own list?

If the purpose of a holiday gift is to show appreciation and love, then there’s a good argument to be made that you should be number one. You’ve worked hard, put in the hours, and kept the ship right side up. All of that devotion and focus deserves celebrating, ideally with something you’ll love wearing, using, or otherwise enjoying.

To help you focus on finding the perfect gift for the person you know better than anyone (yourself!), we pulled together some universal crowd-pleasers that you’ll use all the time.
