As we become adults, there are fewer special occasions for us to look forward to. We get holidays and we get birthdays, but for most of us, graduations and weddings and the big celebratory milestones are grow fewer and farther between.Instead of thinking of this as a depressing situation, let’s look at the glass half full. Even if you have no actual excuse to celebrate, we have a few reasons for you to whip out the bubbly, pile on the baubles and buy a gift for you…something that sparkles.
If you’re celebrating…a promotion!
Buy yourself…a Monbento Square Lunch Box.
So you busted your butt for the past year and a half and you’re being rewarded with a slightly-larger cubicle and a 2.5% raise. That’s nothing to sneeze at, considering that finding any job at all is no easy feat these days. Rather than blowing your pay increase on lunches at the trendiest new salad shop, BYO lunch from home. Take your leftover lemon and garlic grilled chicken and a side of pesto barley edamame salad or pack up some creamy, crunchy chicken salad with whole wheat crackers and fresh fruit. You’ll save money….and everyone will envy your lunchbox. Really.
If you’re celebrating…finally dumping your loser boyfriend.
Buy yourself an….elegant Shane Co. statement necklace.
Seriously ladies, you don’t need a man to buy you jewelry. If you want proof, ask my mom, who received the same silver necklace from my dad two birthdays in a row. Plus five points for recognizing her style, but minus five points for memory.
There are many things that we can count on our significant others for, but let’s make jewelry a personal choice. Shane Co. offers everything from pearls to pendants that are accessible for anyone, regardless of your style preference.
If you’re celebrating…Christmas in July. Because, why not?
Buy yourself a…classic tote that you’ll use forever.
The best gifts are ones you wouldn’t get for yourself. Unless, you’re getting a gift for yourself. Stash all of your workday or weekend essentials in a classic, leather Kate Spade that your might very well have for the rest of time. Don’t look at the price tag and don’t justify it in your head. It’s the holidays, after all, right?
If you’re celebrating…your new apartment.
Buy yourself a…solid set of coffee mugs.
If you’re like me and you can break glass or ceramics by just looking at it, then you need strong vessels for your morning caffeine. It’s also hard to argue that coffee is always a good idea.
If you’re celebrating…not one sinngle thing.
Buy yourself a…Shane Co. fashion ring.
Everyone needs a little bling from time to time. Treat yourself to a pretty piece of jewelry, even if you don’t think you need one. Fashion rings are a fun way to accessorize without overwhelming your outfit.
