Forget writing a Christmas list! More of us are now ensuring we get the perfect gift this Christmas by buying it for ourselves. Almost half (43 percent) of people surveyed admitted to buying a present for themselves on at least one birthday or Christmas while one in ten said it’s something they always do.

While I am not usually a ‘self-gifter,‘ I will admit that I have put a store ad on the kitchen table and strongly suggested that I would be ‘so happy’ if someone buys me this for Christmas! I have also emailed online shopping website links to my husband, in not so subtle hints as to what I would like for him to get me!

For those who do ‘self-gift’ during the holidays, the ‘top four’ gifts to self include:

-Clothing and footwear

-TVs and Music equipment

-Recreation and culture

-Restaurants and hotels

Do you buy your own Christmas or birthday gifts to insure you get what you REALLY want?
