    21 Little Things To Get Yourself Before You Start Buying Gifts For Everyone Else

    Small things to get *yourself* before the holiday chaos commences.

    1. A Golden Girls mug so everyone knows what to expect from you — and I can't exactly tell you why you need it, I just know you do.

    2. A pretty rose quartz roller and gua sha set so you can skip the expensive spa trip and give yourself the ultimate facial at home.

    3. Legendary Ladies — an empowering book filled with GORGEOUS illustrations of 50 legendary goddesses and a brief description of why they are so extraordinary.

    4. A set of silky-soft satin pillowcases designed to help keep your hair from frizzing, your skin from breaking out, and your dreams sweet.

    5. Crew-style knit socks that'll make you want to IMMEDIATELY curl up with a cup of cocoa and a good book.

    6. A tin of festive tea, because you're all about cinnamon and spice and everything nice.

    7. An undated planner that'll let you write down important reminders as you go, so if you end up forgetting you have a planner for months on end (guilty as charged), there's no wasted pages.

    8. A skeleton ice cube mold tray to celebrate being juuuuust a little bit (okay, a lot) dead on the inside.

    9. A cushy bath pillow that'll make your baths even *more* relaxing, and you DESERVE that! 👏

    10. A hand lettering 101 book featuring detailed instructions for nine lettering styles that'll teach you all the basics you need for some flawless penmanship. *Slowly chants*, bring back snail mail.

    11. Rainbow stainless steel straws — they're not only environmentally-friendly, but simply darling. What more could you want in a $13 product?!?

    12. A pack of crisscross headbands for the days when you just don't feel like washing your hair (me on most days, TBH).

    13. A Luke's Diner shirt you must wear every time you feel like you need coffee in an IV — it's the law.

    14. A fuzzy fleece jacket that'll upgrade the leggings you've been wearing to your most successful OOTD post yet.

    15. A dough press for making delicious dumplings, ravioli, empanadas, and pierogis allllll in the comfort of your kitchen so you never have a reason to leave. You're welcome.

    16. A pair of chic, delicate earrings you 100% need if you're one to never take your earrings off (me) but still want to look polished and on-trend every day.

    17. A neck pillow in the shape of a FREAKIN' SHRIMP. Why use a plain neck pillow when you could be sleeping on a shrimp one?!? This isn't up for debate, this pillow rocks.

    18. A cute letter board to leave yourself funny messages, welcome your guests, or (if you're a responsible adult) remind yourself of important dates.

    19. A deep conditioning mask that'll revive dry hair with its Argan oil, collagen, B vitamin, and rosehip oil formula. It's like a hydrating drink of water but for your head. *Ahhh.*

    20. An oversized, 25-ounce prosecco glass because bath rule number one is: BYOB (bring your own bubbles).

    21. Speaking of baths, a hypoallergenic bubble bath made with calming lavender and naturally-derived botanicals to comfortably soak in all while knowing you're not marinating in a tub of chemicals.
