I’ve just ordered an water jet interdental cleaner! I’m so excited as I didn’t get one for Christmas. What’s the gift you would buy yourself? (Beside sentimental family time stuff)

I bought myself a very expensive pillow!

I bought myself a new iPad 😊. I couldn’t ask anyone to get me something so expensive as we only do token gifts so I thought I’d treat myself.

I got a nice dress in the sale, 11 quid, I prefer things that are a fiver though.

As no one gave it to me despite (too subtle) hints I'm going to buy myself Bill Bryden's new book on the Body.

I bought myself a present and it arrived this morning. An exercise bike from argos. I am very pleased with it and assembled it in about half an hour, nice to use while watching tv.

Mine is due on Sunday and I’m getting excited!!! It’s like Christmas again!

If I could afford it, I'd pay someone to paint all the rooms in the house.

I’m off out this morning and hope to save £120 by buying a Rohan jacket in the sale 😂

Well I have bought one or two things in the online sales. Best presents are the ones that you get for yourself. Imho

Books, books, books

I haven’t treated myself to a gift ( too taken up with other things) but having an Amazon wish list and getting Christmas presents from it (from my family )is more or less the same thing....means you get exactly what you want.
Books, perfume, fancy writing paper and cds.😃

I've bought myself a kit to crochet a lovely colourful blanket . That will keep me busy for a while! smile

A perfume that I actually like!

Hello Lexigran, your crochet kit sounds interesting, can you tell me more about it, i.e. Novice friendly, etc
Thank you!

Contemplating a trip to Black Sheep Wool (brilliant yarn/stitchy shop)this morning, to buy something I don't need but just fancy.grin

Despite hints, I’ve bought myself the DVD of Sanditon.

aggie Sat 28-Dec-19 10:06:52

Lexigran I did the same even though I have one started and 2 in the queue! And have a painfull wrist so it will be a while till I start ( might have to jump the queue! )

Some matching red underwear in the sale! I've always wanted red underwear but always stick to 'practical'. Saw it and thought sod it smile

I’ve bought myself a new Kipling suitcase in the sale😁

Thinking of buying a cordless vacuum cleaner as I have unused vouchers to spend.

I bought myself a small box of Cadbury's Roses, I still like bog standard, non 70% cocoa solids chocolate, although since Kraft has got their hands on the brand, it's not what it was sadWe finished them off last night whilst watching Gavin and Stacey on Iplayer, I kindly gave my husband the fudgey rubbish ones smile

I've bought myself a personalised, quality leather spectacles case, from a company in Geneva. It's lovely and will last many years.

A boxed set of 4 lovely nostalgic family xmas scenes jigsaw puzzles. Haven't done jigsaws for years and fell in love with the pictures these are made up from. Also a board/fold up puzzle thingy to house them while working on them. Will probably take me til next xmas to finish them.
