Tis the season to spoil yourself – that’s what they say, right? We hear in Opsh HQ are all big believers in self-gifting, particularly during the most wonderful time of the year.

Of course nothing quite beats that feeling of spending hours picking out the perfect present for someone, meticulously wrapping it in beautiful paper and excitedly handing it over to them on Christmas day – blah, blah, blah.

But you know what? 2016 has been a tough year, to say the least so it’s important to treat yourself to make up for it. Although we could make a list of 1,246,902 things we want this Christmas, we’ve narrowed it down to a simple and *gorgeous* 10.

G’wan – treat yourself!

Ronda, Crystal Drop Earrings, €42, Ted Baker


We are totally obsessed with these amazing earrings from Ted Baker. Guaranteed to make any outfit look instantly more expensive (without the hefty price-tag)! We won’t be taking these off once during silly season. Check out the full list of stockists right here and their Facebook page here


Eloise Black Aviator Jacket, €84, PrettyLittleThing


Yes, it may be getting a bit late to get yourself a winter coat but let’s be frank – it’s going to be freezing in Ireland until at least March. We’re all about those Aviator vibes this season and this PLT one is at the top of our treat’yo’self list.

Bucket Bag, €24.99, Parfois


Bellami Luxury Hair Extensions


All we want for Christmas is… hair like Kylie’s. That’s not too much to ask for, is it? Bellami clip-in hair extensions have recently launched in salons across Ireland and is the perfect gift for yourself this season – think of all those Christmas nights out! Prices range depending on colour, length etc but start from €200. Worth. Every. Penney.

Release your inner MUA with the Naked 3 palette. It’s perfect for any make-up aficionado – as well as all the make-up newbies around us. The colours range from super smooth mattes to sparkling shimmers – and everything in between. Obsessed.

King Cavalier Dog Cushion/Pug Cushion, €38, April and the Bear


We love supporting Irish – and we also love supporting pugs so these cushions are right up our street. If you’re in the midst of decorating your home, you best not leave out (wo)man’s best friend. The perfect present from-me-to-me. Diviiiine.

Is this bag real life? With futuristic tones mixed with mermaid vibes, it’s the perfect bag to inject some style into any outfit. We want.

Semi Permanent Lashes, €100, Blink and Winkgiphy

If there’s anything that can make us feel like a million bucks (even on those woeful winter mornings), it’s new lashes and one of our favourite salons, Blink and Wink do some of the best semi-permanent lashes around. They also have some pretty amazing Christmas packages – but get in there quick because appointments are booking up quickly.

Whisper It Initial Ring, €89, Chupi


You know what? Why do we have to wait for a man to put a ring on our finger? This Christmas, take control and nab yourself one of these amazing initial rings from Irish designer, Chupi Sweetman. We are *dead* over all her amazing creations but we think these rings are pretty special.
