Christmas, a self gifting guide


If you weren’t aware. Christmas is upon us. That time of fractious families, awful work parties and Elton for John Lewis. 

Christmas of course is a time for giving. Giving of your time, your love and your friendship. 

This is wonderful. But…

In readiness for this, you’ll need some pepping up. A few sharpeners to get you in the mood.

Therefore, I propose a different gift list, one that puts the self first, because let’s face it, if you don’t take care of yourself, then 20 jugs of buck’s fizz later, you may start spilling some home truths.

So I’ve put together a selection of 12 items, which meet our Purposeful Activity ‘can personally vouch for’ criteria and will all, help get you into the ‘Crimbo’ mood.

As a side note and jokes aside, this can be a stressful time of year, often driven by too much consumption. If you are struggling, it’s good to talk. Both ‘CALM’ & ‘The Samaritans’ have people on hand to listen without prejudice.

We start with a jar (or two) of personalised Marmite, with a different morsel of self gifting every other day until the 23rd.
