Spend It: What To Do With Your Holiday Money

The stockings are empty, wrapping paper crumpled everywhere, relatives gone (hurray?), and those sugar cookies, well, they've somehow "vanished." That can only mean one thing: Christmas, Hanukkah, and the holidays, in general, are done. So, how did you do? Get a sparkly bauble from your S.O.? How about a new tablet from your parents? Well, among the presents under the tree, let us guess: There were also a few dollar bills creeping to the front of the present pile (maybe that $10 bill Grandma always gives you, no matter your age).
Now what? Well, since our favorite pastime is spending other people’s money — and helping you find those special gems you'll cherish forever, of course — we tracked down the nifty self-gifties you'll love. So, whether you received $10, $20, $50, $100, or $500 (lucky you!), drop that dough on the glam bags, winter-vacay-ready espadrilles, and super-sleek decor picks ahead. Trust us, those givers will be very proud of how you spent those bucks.
