Indulgent, Excellent Self-Gifts That Help You Feel Like “The Boss”

Many of us have known what it’s like to work from home over the last two years, but even if we haven’t had experience in that particular field, like never before we’ve been thrust into the management of our own affairs and the development of our own responsibility.

No matter if the difficulty of this time has helped you flourish in your job, or helped you realize that actually, the career path you’re on is not necessarily suited for you, many of us have looked at life anew and tried to refocus on our goals. But when we take that kind of authoritative decision to move forward in a direction that might be treading new ground, it’s easy to feel a little nervous or even anxious.

Investing in ourselves, then, to showcase who we are and why we should appreciate and treat ourselves is key. This way, a few indulgent gifts to ourselves can mark the changing point where we begin to focus on our own needs and to move into new waters with care. With that in mind, let’s consider a few goods that help us think in those terms:

Cigars & Fragrances

There’s nothing like kicking back with a beautiful amount of incense in a study room, enjoying a beautiful product from Cigars international, or indulging in a fragrance that truly helps you express yourself when attending a formal or professional event. Scents, fragrances, and accessories like this can help you feel ‘in the mood’ for maturity, professionalism, capability, and investing in yourself. That kind of approach will help us retain our most confident self, and inspire us to look past our comfort zone.

Professional Wear

There’s nothing quite like feeling confident in your dress and wishing to go outside and achieve based on it. No matter if you’re dressing for the job you want, or if you’re about to undergo quite an important job interview, having formal dress fitted and appropriate accessories, like cufflinks, measured can do a world of good for your confidence. Knowing you have one suit or overcoat you can look to with pride gives you that sense of ambition you may not have had otherwise, as well as an image to make good on.

High-Quality Stationery

Everyone deserves a small space in their home where they can manage their affairs and finances, organize their day, and determine what is most important in life. High-quality stationery can make a major difference here, particularly if it’s well taken care of and speaks to focus and high-quality craft. A beautiful fountain pen can make a tremendous difference, as can a false leather-bound notebook, journal, and diary used to add a little visceral reality compared to the constant digital tools we use to manage our day. The heaviness of the paper, the importance of indenting it with ink, all of this can seem so much more measured and cared for when we take such a process seriously.

With this advice, we believe you’ll enjoy a few indulgent self-gits that help you feel like a boss. There’s nothing at all wrong with that.
