It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, and that can only mean one thing. The mad dash to the shops for gifts, the calendar filling up with social events, and you feel more pressured than relaxed. While you are busy thinking of everyone else this year, take some time out to give yourself a gift. We don’t often treat ourselves, especially during the festive season, so why not start now? Whether you change habits or do something drastic, these are some of the gifts you can give yourself, and they keep on giving. Intrigued? Read on to find out more.
Get a piercing
It may sound a strange one, but many people love getting piercings, be it their ears, nose, belly button or other areas of their bodies. If this is something you like to do, then why not treat yourself at this time of year? You can look at online ear piercings guides to help you decide on the right sort to go for, and the reason it keeps on giving is that you feel fabulous and that you have something you or other people can buy you in the future.
A subscription service
Whether you like to read magazines, enjoy box sets and films on TV or love to try new products, there is bound to be a subscription service that works for you. It is the ideal treat as each month you pay; you get access to some fantastic things. A Tv subscription service will see you gain access to new releases. A magazine service will have you being delivered the latest issues, and something like a beauty subscription will enable you to receive a box of goodies in the post each month. There is something for everyone.
A virtual assistant
Is your idea of the perfect gift more hours in the day? Then maybe it is time for a virtual assistant. This could be the best gift you give yourself as a VA could take away some of the admin that takes up a lot of your time. Whether it is answering emails, handling social media or generally being around to help you manage your business endeavors, this could be the gift that keeps on giving.
Change your hairstyle
Maybe you like the idea of a change in your look, and a dramatic change of hairstyle could do that for you. You may have long hair and decide to chop it all off. You might have short hair and choose to invest in extensions. Or it could be a change of colour. Whatever it is, it could give you the confidence boost you need and could certainly be a great gift to yourself.
Switch up your routine
Finally, maybe you need to switch up your routine. It could be simple things like trying to give yourself more sleep at night or enabling you to work smarter not harder. It could be a fantastic gift to yourself as it could be just what you need to feel better and be more productive moving forward.
Sometimes you need a little inspiration and a nudge to think of yourself for a change.
I like the ideas, but… it’s BEGINNING to look like Christmas? 😀 Christmas season, for me, has begun about a month ago. I made a brave resolution to complete the majority of my Christmas gift shopping by the end of November – call it a little gift for myself, if you will, to lift some of that December pressure off my future self and allow myself much calmer, stress-free holiday season. And I managed to stick to my word, I pretty much finished all of this year’s gift shopping yesterday. I would 100% recommend that sort of gift to yourself to anyone. 🙂
