What gift would yiu buy yoursef?

My 50th birthday is this month. I reminded my children about it, so they would not forget. It is now less then a week away, and nothing from either child about their plans for that weekend.

I have resigned myself to buying my own gift, as I do every year. What would you buy for yourself if you had to buy your own birthday gift? I just go new living room furniture last week, got a great buy on a bed in a bag set which included the window drapes, too. I have plenty of knick knacks, perfume, makeup and clothing. I want a fun gift, something not an every day gift. I was thinking of having a few older jewelry pieces made into one very nice ring and pendant.


So, what would you buy yourself a gift, nothing practical but a fun and not an every day thing I buy.

  • First, happy birthday!
    How about concert tickets for you and someone else? That's what I'd get if I could. Or a fun class. My MIL took cake decorating classes at Hobby Lobby and loved it. :-)
    Or a shopping overnight trip somewhere fun.

  • I think maybe a little mini-vacation with some of your best gal pals would be a great gift! Maybe Vegas?

  • I would probably buy something gadgety like a new iPod Touch (to replace mine that was thrown away). I do love jewelry though. I might get a nice vintage ring or necklace or look around online until I found something I like. I know I am still looking for a nice antique typewriter that still works and an Edison phonograph.

    Hope you have a wonderful birthday!

  • Do something fun, maybe throw your own birthday party at a restaurant with your friends. Buy an e-book reader if you like to read. Go some place you have been wanting to go. Get a massage or a makeover.
