It's that time of year again when families and friends celebrate the winter solstice by maxing out their credit cards in an effort to purchase continued affections of those they hold dear. But Private Island, an online party store, is reminding shoppers that in the midst of all the holiday shopping to not forget about the most important and deserving person of all: oneself!
According to the National Retail Federation, 6 out of every 10 shoppers plan to spend an average of $139.92 on 'self-gifting' this holiday season.
The following are Private Island's fun tips for all self-gifters:
1. Know the crowd. Some people may find the act of self-gifting to be a greedy and foolhardy endeavor. Jealous haters is all they are. So, in this society filled with judgmental naysayers, one must abide by a certain code of discretion when practicing the art of self-gifting.
2. Self-gifting can be approached one of two ways.
3. The first option is to buy yourself some gifts and not tell anyone about it. While this is the simpler of the solutions, it is nowhere near as theatrical as the second option.
4. The second option: concoct a fictitious secret admirer! This would involve leaving and/or mailing self-gifted packages for yourself at the home or place of employment. Put on some John Lennon sunglasses, wait until others are around and make a big show of opening these gifts! Don't forget to attach cards that read “From Your Secret Admirer” to really sell the whole thing. If possible, make a point to shove any gifts from actual friends out of the way and loudly exclaim how good it feels that at least one person out there really knows you well.
5. Enjoy! Your self-gifts are well-deserved.
Private Island Party offers a wide selection of holiday theme party items and holiday costumes to personalize seasonal festivities. Shoppers can also currently take advantage of special holiday discounts on last-minute gifts and stocking stuffers.
