Christmas is like marmite, you either love it or hate it. But me, obviously wanting to be a bit different, it’s a mixture of both. I love the fact that I can choose presents for my family and friends that they are going to love, but don’t you always find there is one person who is really difficult to buy for?
That Person is Me
We all have that one friend or family member who is just so fussy, has everything already or is just so different to you that you spend months trawling the internet to find something just right. A lot of the time, in desperation on the 23rd of December, you end up putting some money in a card. Let them decide, at least that way it would be a gift they truly want or need. I hate doing this but desperate times call for desperate measures. For me this person is my sister, but for my family and friends, that person is me!
I don’t like to be that person but it is just the way it is. With a decent wage and no kids, I have the money to buy what I want during the year. A wardrobe full of the latest fashion is the norm in my house, but fashion comes at a price. I don’t expect people to buy me expensive gifts at Christmas but they all know I just don’t like the cheaper stuff.
And the Gift Answer is…Money
In the pre-Christmas chaos I tend to avoid the shops as much as I can. Shopping online is easier, more convenient and stress free, the only problem is that I get distracted with things I want for myself. I have started to make a note of the different things I come across because I know I am going to get money for Christmas. Yes, I am that bad people have simply given up trying to buy me presents! Most people don’t even give me cash anymore, they simply transfer money to my bank or PayPal account so I can spend it straight away, and I waste no time at all. Up early Boxing Day morning hunting for a new outfit for New Year!
My Amazing New Boots!
I feel this is an excellent place to share with the world (well, my readers, anyway!) my favourite shoe website. I stumbled on Scorpio Shoes a couple of weeks again, driven by my need of a fab, versatile pair of boots to complete my new sales-bought outfits. I love the site, which is a problem in itself; it takes too long to bloody choose a pair because there are too many shoes I love on the site! I found the Rocket Dog boots within half an hour, instantly adding them to my shortlist. Trendy, practical and really, really comfortable, they go with loads of my outfits, both old and new, and are the perfect fashion item to splurge some of my Christmas money on!
Even better, the sale price pf the boots meant I could also slash out on some new jewellery AND have money left over! Another excuse for a further shopping expedition…
