Does anyone else find themselves buying presents for themselves at Christmas?

I don't usually buy much for myself during the year because A.) I'm not a big shopper and B.) most of my time is spent buying for the house or the kids. However, during the holidays, when I'm online shopping or in the stores I tend to see things that I would really like and since I know that no one is going to buy it for me I buy it for myself. The only one who buys gifts for me anymore is my hubby and he typically won't buy clothes or shoes for me. I have my own income so money isn't the problem but I still feel weird about it.

  • Usually no.

    However, there's a couple of things I *really REALLY want this year, and I'm debating whether I can justify the expense if I say they're Christmas presents from the kids to me, etc.

  • I usually just buy stuff for everyone else, but if money were not an issue I don't guess it's a bad thing.

  • Yes, I do buy things for myself since I just buy nothing ever for myself. I have no income and he watchs the money but christmas shopping I can tell him it was on sale. But mainly I buy more candy or holiday cookies instead of clothes or anything else. I might even pick up the holiday books since love to read and only out once a year. I say no problem that you buy for yourself cause you deserve things for yourself as well as everyone else.
