Holiday Gift Guide for Treatin' Yo'self

This post may contain affiliate links. Affiliate revenue helps me keep ExtraExtravagant running. Thank you for your support!

I'm one of those people who stress about getting the perfect gift for family and friends, not just for the holidays but also for occasions like birthdays and parents' days. I know that you can show appreciation in other, non-material ways, but I've always used gifts as like a grand gesture to supplement the little things.

One person I always miss out on, though, is myself. I can't even think of the last time I bought something nice for myself. I'm a major Scrooge McScroogeface when it comes to spending money on myself because I get hella anxious about buying things I don't absolutely need, mostly because I worry about things like, "What if I need this money for something lifesaving in like three days from now?"

This year, because I have that sweet, sweet raise from switching jobs, I've decided I'm gonna treat myself with something nice, so I compiled this list, mostly for myself but also for you as a reminder that every now and then, you should pat yourself on the back. Note, though, that when I say "gifts to treat yo'self," I don't just mean throw ten grand down and take yourself on a trip to Europe. Sure, that's one way to do it, but this list is more so treatin' yo'self in the sense of managing your wellness.

College

Last week, I found some posts for those of you in college riding out the rest of the Spring semester. I found a post about the dos and don'ts for the night before an exam. I also found a post for how you can make the most out of your Winter Break once you get through those exams. Then, for those of you graduating this semester, I also found a post about what to expect in terms of your post-college expenses.


Lifestyle

Speaking of post-college expenses, here's a post about money principles to keep in mind. Then, for those of you moving to a new city, here are a couple of posts about what to do.

Blogging

With Winter Break coming up, you might be considering using the time to start a YouTube channel. Here's a post about questions to ask yourself before making the plunge. Along the same line, just because you have more free time, it doesn't mean you should take up every opportunity that comes your way. Here's a post about when to say no to blog opportunities and a post with scripts for saying no.
