It’s customary in many parts of the world to gift someone something, after they’ve achieved a goal. Be it education related, career related, or even something bigger like kicking off a bad habit, this “pat in the head” through a gift only makes people want to work harder and do better. And in the case of a personal victory or achievement, we are firm believers that you should buy yourself a congratulatory gift to celebrate it. Not only will it be a reward for all the hardship you faced to achieve your goal; it’ll also be a tangible token of this moment. Here are a few options to consider.
A holiday away from all of it
If you’ve been working hard, physically or mentally, then no doubt you have been putting away holidays and hardly taken a moment for yourself. Proper sleep too gets ignored and considered unimportant in moments like this. As you’re finally done with all the chaos, gift yourself with a holiday. Get back to the family, and reconnect with them. Drag out your bicycle in Singapore, go on a picnic. If you can manage it, give yourself a luxurious getaway holiday. It doesn’t matter if you can take only a weekend off for this, or if you’ll have to travel by yourself; the important thing is relaxing.
Update yourself and your surrounding
It’s surprising how things can outdate around you while you’re busy otherwise. As this is a treat for yourself, updating yourself and your surrounding can be a great way to celebrate. Your laptop, your entertainment units, your broadband connection, even your exercise gear and home office’s interior are all worthy updates to make. If you’re a cycling enthusiast, and there’s a bicycle sale in your locality, then go for it! In the same way, if you like to read, and haven’t had a chance to lose yourself in a book for a while now, then head over to the nearest bookstore and splurge a little!
Tangible gift or no?
Jewelry bought on special occasions can be a lovely gift for yourself. This is an indulgence not a lot of people go for, especially when it comes to jewelry made of precious metals and stones. Some people even draw strength from token as such in future moments of difficulties. But not every gift has to be the tangible sort. It’s perfectly alright if you want to go for a gift that only you’ll know about. For example, have you always wanted to eat at a famous luxury hotel in your locality; but avoided it because it was an overindulgence? Then an occasion like this is reason enough to celebrate in style there. Even if it means eating all by yourself…!
