chit chat: christmas gifts
So I'm curious... Do you buy yourself a Christmas gift?
I do. I really cannot remember when this little yearly ritual started for me, but I am pretty certain that it was at some point while I was in college. I always buy clothes and shoes when I need them (okay also sometimes when I want them) but otherwise I do not make a lot of purchases. However, every year at Christmas time I treat myself to one or two items that I want not need. It is never anything extravagant but I pick out something pretty and fun that I would not typically otherwise purchase. Sometimes it is something that I have wanted for a long time.
For years my coworkers have teased me about my tradition but the other day I heard that 67% of people purchase themselves at least one gift during the holiday season. It seems I fall in the majority and now I am beginning to wonder if a few of my coworkers are just unwilling to admit they get themselves a gift at Christmas.
If you are planning on getting yourself a little something for the holidays but haven't done so yet make sure to check out our gift guides.
