What Do You Buy Yourself for Christmas?

Do you buy yourself a Christmas present as you are out and about buying for others? There have been years I don’t, but for the most part I treat myself to a little something. This year I am choosing a gift for myself that will double as what my daughter will give me. She is only four and cannot give a gift on her own and since her dad is not around anymore to help her do it, I will help her buy my gift. I am looking at mp3 players online today, because I am probably the last person in the US to still not own one. Somehow, that one fab has just slipped by without me.

Last year I bought some perfume I had been wanting and let Gigi pay at the register with my credit card. Then, I let her wrap the gift on her own. It was a nice experience for both of us. I don’t think Christmas is all about the gifts. In fact, I don’t even think gifts are even in my top 10 reasons for Christmas, but I enjoy them nonetheless. As you get older, you find fewer occasions come around that warrant you receiving a gift. So, you take it when you can get it.

It crossed my mind that it would be great to just have Gigi draw me a picture of make my present with her clay and craft things, but I wanted the mp3 player anyway, so this works out just fine.
