Below, a list of all the very best gifts for myself that I plan to (or have already) purchased, because after a certain age, writing a wish list can start to feel, well, silly. That’s not to say I don’t see the value in it, but as a (mostly) financially solvent adult human, the exercise of sending my loved ones a curated list of items that I want, but have tacitly agreed not to order for myself, has become decidedly overindulgent.
The Signature Scent
Scented candlesmake a great gift—or do they? More than once, I’ve given a friend what I considered a deliciously scented candle, only to notice it sitting unburnt on their bookshelf months later. Scents are subjective, and as such, it makes sense to snag a candle whenever you find one you really love.
