Have you ever successfully given someone a present of jewelry or clothing that you continue to feel good about?


I saw this Sandro dream splatter print shirt in the store of this wild multi-colour print in cartoon splotch dots, and I KNEW my mother would love it, with her artsy nature, peeking out of her sweaters and just making her cushily enveloped in a splatter of bright, happy, rainbow colours:


I gave it to her and she loved it, but wanted to know what it cost to make sure it wasn’t too much.

I refused to tell her but I’ll tell you — it was $250 before taxes.

To this day, it makes me happy knowing she loved it. I just hope she proudly wears it a lot, and doesn’t think about the price!

Sherry of Save. Spend. Splurge.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    Alas no, I suck at gifting clothes or jewelry. I am way better at the practical life gift. PiC, however, has successfully picked out quite a few winners for me 😀

      I love it when people get stuff that is a major win 🙂 I am great at gifting things but prefer useful items if possible
