Holiday (Personal) Shopping

Why is it that we spend more time buying stuff for ourselves during the holidays than we do our friends and family?

Of course I revel in finding that perfect gift for Mom, or Best Friend, or Boyfriend, but I'm only slightly shamed to admit that not a shopping trip goes by where I don't sneak in a sparkly blouse here or a pair of lace-up oxfords there.

For instance, these Eames coasters -- picked out by Grace at DesignSponge -- work well in my boyfriend's thoroughly modern apartment, but I can't help envisioning them in my psuedo-Parisian boudior that subtly hints of the mid-century. Maybe a "his and hers" moment is in order.
