Holiday Gifts You Buy Yourself

Holiday Gifts you buy yourself

 Well my dears the holiday season is here and like me I’m sure you’re busy. What with making holiday travel arrangements, buying gifts, work and social events there is hardly enough time! Certain things that you can delegate and you do and other’s you must do yourself. I learned a long time ago that if you want something done right, or at least to your standards you do it yourself.

 This applies to holiday gifts as well. Enough dropping hints and making suggestions take matters into your own hands. Who knows better what you want than you.(the only one my be me).Your loved one’s will be happy to know you have your gifts under control.So when your parents, significant other or family ask what do you want, you can tell them, order it and secure delivery. They’ll all be happy that you spared them the time. Therefore, ensuring you get what you want, killing two turtle doves with one stone. So pour yourself a nice glass of whatever you fancy and curl up with your laptop and let me guide you on a shopping tour of  Holiday Gifts you buy Yourself.

Christmas Cocktail

So keeping the spirit of the Holidays alive get online and look after those gifts you would like to give yourself and those that your loved ones will be more than happy to give you. Often over the years my parents would gift me money for the holidays , it’s much more special to take that money and buy yourself something lasting that you’ll have to remember holidays past. Shopping for the holidays doesn’t mean that you have to leave the comfort of your own home anymore and the experience can be much more rewarding.
To encourage that spirit of shopping at home here’s the recipe for my favorite Christmas cocktail .



    • 1 bunch fresh mint, trimmed (about 1 cup)
    • 1/2 cup sugar
    • 1 3/4 cups light rum
    • 1 1/4 cups fresh lime juice
    • 3/4 cup frozen cranberry juice cocktail concentrate, thawed
    • 2 10-ounce bottles sparkling water, chilled


  1. Using a wooden spoon, mash mint with sugar in bottom of large pitcher. Add rum and lime juice; stir to dissolve sugar.
  2. Mix in thawed cranberry juice concentrate and water. Mix in 6 cups ice.

Well my dears enjoy your holiday season and shop wisely. I always give you classic choices and hope that you all find something that you can use. My recipe for the Christmas Cocktail is yummy , perfect for easy entertaining or just for a quiet drink . Will post again soon

Ciao for now Jandrew
