    Ok, I normally give myself presents twice a year (trying to cut down on all the many other occassions, mother´s day, father´s day...and I don´t even have kids). So now I was just putting things on my Amazon shopping cart for my christmas presetns to myself (not ging to press the send button yet till the season kicks in). I just checked the total and its in the lowly Price of 250 something pounds. It´s still in the shopping basket....part of me is saying "remove ítems" another is saying "it´s a long way till next August....

    I don't buy myself presents but me and Kevin usually budget around £100 on each other although he usually ends up spending a little more on me.
    Years ago I used to buy myself something each month and wrap it up for Christmas, I would always forget what I had bought and have a lovely surprise when Christmas came.:)

    I have never heard of someone buying themselves presents before?

    I would just class that as internet shopping, the norm or a treat!

    I also do not have kids, so I buy myself STUFF all year round. :eek: I do like to have a good wardrobe and nice home. Girly, girly me....

    So, PUSH THE BUTTON!!! :eek:

    Lol, I consider them christmas presents because I wrap them and put them under the tree:D I do love getting myself gifts (who knows my taste better tan me:D)
    Once I bought myself a hot comb (near valentine´s ) and the sales girl asked if she should wrap it and my friend quickly said "yes".

    Place the order, if you wait a few months the items may be out of stock or worse discontinued.

    I have never wrapped presents up for myself.... :lol:

    Once I purchase something, I can't wait to use it! :thumbup:

    I never give myself presents. I just buy what I want when I can afford it.
    Why not? Don`t really understand why it has to be a gift. :confused: If you want it and you have the cash, buy it.

    I do have things I buy for myself normally, that I need but things I don´t need and like I consider gifts, to myself but gifts. I´m a L'Oreal woman I´m worth it". :D. Plus really being one of these people who really enjoy Christmas in every posible way, it is logical (to me) to have my gifts wrapped near my shoes:D

    Mine (hopefully) will be a belated Chrimbo pressie to myself and is £400 but will so be worth it and will be priceless so to speak and besides I am worth it! Lol...:D

    You are looking at this from the wrong view point - the question should be how much is too little to spend on yourself :thumbup:

    I don't like me so I never buy me a christmas present.

    I don't send myself a christmas card either.

    In fact I dislike me so much I'm waiting for the day I die.

    Only then will I celebrate the ocassion! :wink:
