7 Fantastic Gifts to Give Yourself on Any Occasion



Finding gifts for loved ones can be both challenging and fun. Depending on the person, that is. Whether it’s a birthday, Christmas or anniversary, it’s great to see a look of delight on someone’s face when you give them a well-thought-out gift.

Gifts can come in many forms. It can be something tangible such as a bouquet of fresh flowers or one of the dermal fillers Perth beauticians are offering. Giving your loved ones a gift is one thing, but the question must be asked. How often do you spoil yourself?

Self-Gifting—Still Very Relevant

The self-gifting game can be tricky. On the one end of the spectrum, you have people who routinely spoil themselves. And then you have people who never buy, do or make anything for themselves. This is usually because they think self-gifting is selfish.

Which group do you fall under? Good for you if you’re recognising that you are also worthy of the occasional gift. If not, this article is for you.

Let’s be honest. Everyone deserves the occasional gift. Whether it’s for your birthday or just because you hit a new milestone in your life, you deserve something to celebrate ‘you’. Otherwise you may start feeling life is all about ‘doing’ and ‘giving’, without any rewards coming your way.

Gift buying for yourself can be seen as a form of self-care!

Now, not sure what to get yourself? Well, we’ve got some ideas.

1.     Beauty Treatments

Just as everyone deserves the occasional gift to unwrap, so too should they have a frequent pampering session. Few things can be as relaxing as sitting back and having someone give you a pedicure, manicure or even a much-needed PDO thread lift to rejuvenate your skin. Have a look at your local beautician or skin clinic website for a list of treatments to spoil yourself with. There are always special offers to keep it within budget.

2.     A Barista-Grade Espresso Machine

Do you get up every morning and rush to the local coffee shop for your morning fix? It might be time to gift yourself with a barista-grade coffee maker. Opt for a machine that can make all your favourite coffee drinks as the smartest investment for your kitchen.

Not only will you have access to your favourite cappuccino drink any time of the day, but you’ll save money on not buying coffee takeaways anymore! You can turn your next beauty treatment into a whole spa day.

3.     Premium Cocktail Machine

If you’re more of a Cosmopolitan or Margarita-after-work kind of person, then switch the espresso maker for a cocktail machine. You’ll be able to enjoy a whole host of different cocktails and at the same time, add a touch of professionalism to your next cocktail party!

4.     Luxury Bathtub Caddy Tray

If you’re a gift giver, you’ve undoubtedly bought a nifty bath caddy for someone else already. Well, yes, time to gift yourself one.

Depending on the style you choose, you can have a snack, glass of wine and everything else you need right at your fingertips while relaxing in the water. No more trying to balance your glass of wine on the edge of the bath!

5.     Embroidered Silk Pillowcases

If sleeping on your usual cotton pillowcases leaves your hair in a mess, spoil yourself with a few silk options. There’s a reason many people regard silk pillowcases as being one of life’s true luxuries. Here’s how you’ll benefit from switching to silk:

  • Pillows stay cool all night – great for those sizzling summer nights
  • Available in an enormous variety of colours to suit any preference
  • The best part of all is that they keep your hair from frizzing

Why not opt for a new set or even silk sheets while you’re at it?

6.     Neck and Back Massager

No matter what age you are, we’re all prone to back or neck aches at some point. It can be from sleeping in an awkward position or being hunched over your laptop all day. One of the easiest ways to provide your back and neck with some much-needed relief is to invest in an electric massager.

Some models sport adjustable speeds or even provide heat for maximum comfort. It’s a fantastic way to deal with the stress of a busy day while you’re sipping on a Latte that you made with your new espresso maker.

7.     Cooking or Baking Lessons

Everyone needs a hobby. And if spending time in the kitchen is yours, you might have been thinking of learning new techniques. Well, there’s no time like the present. So, register for some cooking lessons. Not only will you improve your existing skills, but you’ll get a few cooking ideas for your next family get-together.

Final Thought

If your daily routine involves more doing for others than yourself, it may be time to adjust the scales. Self-gifting is an excellent way to reward yourself for all the wonderful things you do.

So, next time you buy a gift for someone, add a little something in the basket for yourself. You’re worth it.
