Do you give yourself gifts during the holidays? I kind of accidentally started this for myself as a young woman one year when I bought myself a black cashmere sweater while I was shopping for my other gifts for others. I also heard something once that stated, "Give yourself a gift every day," and it's a philosophy I like.

This year, my list is pretty much kitchen, because after living here for a year and a half, I've decided that though I can create some pretty good things with my barebones set-up, I want to expand my repertoire a bit.

Deep fryer (yes frying is okay, I searched the blog)
Good knives (and sharpener)
Cast iron pan
Immersion blender
Pressure cooker (because I have the patience of a gnat and want to start getting serious about bone broths).

So, any other self-Santas out there?
