Must-Have Gifts For Yourself
The holidays are here, and it’s time to start thinking through your Christmas wish list. We know, we know, holidays are about giving to those in need, but consider this: your family and friends may be planning to get you a gift. Do you want it to be something you’ll actually use? Or do you want something them to waste their money on another pair of socks or strange wall décor that you’ll never use?
Here are some of the must-have items that you’ll definitely want to ask loved ones to put under the tree for you. Let’s get started!
Some Christmas Apparel
We always deck the halls for Christmas – why not deck yourself? No, I don’t mean start wrapping yourself in tinsel. I’m talking Christmas clothing and accessories. Whether you ask for funny Christmas dresses from Tipsy Elves emblazoned with cats wearing Santa hats or you pick a dress that turns you into a walking, talking gingerbread woman, this is one hilarious gift guaranteed to make a splash at any holiday shindig.
Ask your family to give you the gift of healthy bowel movements. Sure, a Squatty Potty isn’t the most glamorous of gift ideas, but it sure is useful. This toilet-shaped stool (forgive the pun), is an ergonomic footrest designed to put your body in the perfect position for an easy, productive poop.
Need to get in touch with your inner being? Meditation is purported to provide a variety of benefits, ranging from stress relief to enhanced productivity at work. Whether you’re looking for help with anxiety management or want to improve focus in your daily life, taking meditation courses could be good for the body, mind, and soul.
Want to make memories you’ll never forget? Make sure to put an experience gift on your Christmas wish list this year. Sites like FunSherpa.com curate a variety of adventures in your local area; whether you want to ride horses on the beach, head there for fun.
Ask For Donations to Your Favorite Charity
Looking to receive presents that make a difference in the world around you? Instead of asking for something material, ask family and friends to make a donation in your name to the charity of your choosing. Not sure where you’d like your Christmas donation to go? Check out CharityNavigator.org, which lists out numerous charities founded to help with an array of causes. Whether you want to help children receive an education, find shelter for animals, or help out with homeless veterans in your area, you can find a beautiful organization dedicated to finding a solution. Better yet, you’ll know you can trust these organizations to do what they say with your monetary contribution, as they’re rated objectively based on other users’ experiences.
A Clothing Subscription
Whether you’re a natural-born fashionista or you like getting a little bit of help in the fashion department, a clothing box subscription is sure to fit the bill. Companies like StitchFix curate fashion boxes each month according to your style wants; they’ll send you garments in your sizes and accessories to complement your new clothes. Purchase what you like from the box, and send the rest back. No need to head to overcrowded malls, and stinkin’ cute clothes sent to your house every month – could it be any easier?
And there you have it, your Christmas wish list should be a lot longer with these gift ideas in mind! Whether you’re interested in new clothes, money donations made in your name, meditation courses, or Christmas goodies, these are gifts you’ll surely be delighted to open come Christmas morning.
