    Default Gift for myself, no idea! Suggestions please!

    What would you get for a gift for yourself, not for the kids or house? I had a massage last week, that's my usual suggestion when I am asked. DH got a generous Christmas bonus and wants me to nominate something for myself (up to $300). He is already getting himself something. Any suggestions? I am really not into clothes/handbags/makeup.

    Lucky you!
    I'd buy a nice reading chair or outdoor chair for relaxing in.
    Otherwise an extravagant lunch or dinner at a fancy restaurant you wouldn't normally go to.

    Mystery flight.

    Not sure if you can still get them or not but $100 would get you a return flight to an unknown destination and just do whatever when you get there.

    I would ask for new sunglasses and some workout clothes because that's what I need but sounds like you are not into those sorts of gifts .

    What are your hobbies and interests, what do you like to do for fun?

    If it were me, i would use the money to load up my e-reader with a book series I have wanted for awhile. Some of the books range from $20-$40 so i could get a few to keep me entertained!

    I'd send hubby and baby out for the day, get a cleaner in to do all of those annoying jobs like cleaning the oven and scrubbing window tracks, then get a mobile massage therapist over to give me the works!

    I really need clothes since having bub and losing all the baby weight I have nothing but oversized clothes so i asked for clothes. Obviously DH cant buy them so i "Think" hr is getting me a Westfield voucher so i can go shopping !
    Other ideas are skincare, makeup, hair straightener or hair dryer. They are all things iv asked for that are specifically for me! rather than for the house or for other things

    Ereader! Totally what I will ask for. Thankyou everyone. One of those things I periodically say I would love but then kids and household stuff keeps getting in the way. Mmmmm books! Nom nom nom.
