Treat Yourself

The Best After-Christmas Gifts to get for YOURSELF

Ahhhh, the holidaze. You’ve decorated, baked, cleaned, shopped, attended parties, and given of yourself tirelessly. Your loved one’s Christmas gifts have all been lovingly selected, wrapped and distributed by you, and opened by them, and that is such a relief, isn’t it? But now it’s time to treat YOURSELF in order to rejuvenate after the holiday hubbub. Rewarding yourself isn’t selfish, it’s crucial to your well-being. Buying a few little luxuries of your own will not only boost your mood, and provide motivation in the coming months but it will also give you more fuel to provide for the others in your life as we head into 2018. Don’t worry, you don’t need to search these items out, either, because we’ve compiled a few of our favorite after-Christmas gifts you can give yourself.

First up, you’ll be needing the perfect NYE dress! Our pick? This strappy, sequined slip dress from Target. Available for less than $25, this sparkly dress will solve that age-old question of “what am I gonna wear?” with ease!!! Universally flattering, this stunner can be worn with bare legs and arms for all out glam, or you could layer it over black tights and add a fuzzy cardi for a more covered up but still fancy version.

Complete your New Year’s Eve look with a modern “wow” statement in the form of these sapphire blue crushed velvet booties! These bold heels will work with dresses or pants (even jeans) for so many fun looks. You will get so much wear out of these guys. AND, you deserve them!!!

And, add some rose gold dangle earrings for less than $10, for added sparkle and pizzazz. We love the vintage vibe of these ornate cutout danglers! They’ll be wearable long past your NYE celebrations!

A new year is beginning, and you’ll be needing a fresh purse that you can throw on for all your countless errands and appointments. We think you should look stylish and also be very, very comfortable with a smaller, crossbody option. Our pick is this easy to wear Kate Spade New York Mulberry Street Pyper Pebbled Leather Crossbody Ocean Ice Blue:

And, of course, you’ll be needing a few indulgent baths with candles to get you through the winter. (Most women list a candlelit bubble bath as the most relaxing treat of all.) We got you!

We think this set of twelve bath bombs from Amazon by LifeAround2Angels will be super moisturizing and therapeutic. Handmade with all natural ingredients like Shea & Coco Butter, these soothing bombs will provide hours of relaxation time. And fun, ‘cuz they fizz like crazy and turn the water joyful colors (but don’t worry, they don’t stain the tub!)

For your candle, we suggest an absolute extravagance. Diptyque’s Baies Candle, a sumptuous scent composed of blackcurrant leaves and roses, comes in a gorgeous glass container. Heck we even love the box. This is a Parisian luxury candle that you will savor every time you light it.

Go ahead and spoil yourself! You matter! You deserve it!  You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection!
