10 Pretty gifts to give to yourself today
1- Although it seems we can keep all notes, contacts, information we need in our devices these days, having a pretty stationary or agenda is priceless. No matter where you will keep it, a cute cover will always be an inspiration to write down your goals, journals and lists and open the door for your creativity.
2- Need reading glasses? How many times you reach for them every day? Wouldn’t be amazing to find a well styled pair instead? If it is really, really cute, it might even put a smile in your face every time you need the annoying thing. Stop wearing the dollar store ones, you’re doing for yourself, as a treat. Check out this pretty pair from Kate Spade. I bet you will toss the cheap ones in the garbage!
3- Your water bottle! The one you carry everywhere. Are you still using the one you got on a Boxing Day sale two years ago? It is big and the lid closes well but is clunky and black? What about changing it for an attractive one that also will keep your liquids insulated? This is the one and only of the pretty gifts you can give yourself!
4- What about indulging in a lush bath with salts and special bath soaps? I find that if you take the time to prepare your own bath, light some candles, dim the lights and throw your salt bath bombs in the water, you already start to whine down, watching them dissolving, waves of color and smell all over the bathroom! You will feel like you’re having a real glam moment!
5- Going up one notch on this beautiful bath you’re offering to yourself, add a pretty bath tub tray for your book and glass of wine. Close your eyes and picture yourself in this scene!
6- Ah, talking about wine… You need a nice glass to go with the bath, your glass. A crystal one, sparkling in the middle of the bath bubbles. I am not a serious wine drinker, I don’t drink actually hardly anything. However I can’t resist a wine that is poured in a beautiful crystal wine glass . Or champagne for that matter!
7- Now you’re craving some sweet… It is easy to go to your pantry and grab a chocolate bar or some Oreo cookies. But then you can also spoil yourself with some pretty and yummy macaroons all packed up in a gorgeous box to remind you that you deserve it!
8- Don’t forget about upgrading something about that according to some studies, we reach for around 2000 time a day!!!! Your cell phone! Get a new case strong enough to survive the endless handling. For this reason also it has to be nice to the eyes. There is an interesting article here about how we probably use our smart phones more than what we realize. But, in the mean time, for the pretty case, my suggestion is this adorable one.
9- Your lunch box. The one thing you use every day. Why not have a practical and pretty one? I just fell in love with this one.
10- My last suggestion is about food. The one kitchen appliance I got that gives me best of healthy and tasty: this air fryer. Not even this is a super pretty one but it has been adding so much flavour to our every day dinners! I tried making chicken strips, crispy roasted caulk flower, French fries but our ultimate favourite was this version of a deep fried chicken wings, from the famous chef Emeril. Just use the same recipe following the Air Fryer settings for chicken wings and you will be amazed with the crispy and crunchy wings.
What a pleasure to bring any to the above items home! Unpack it, place where it belongs and enjoy the simple pleasure of giving yourself something pretty! You deserve it!
