The holidays are a time of giving, yet no holiday exists to celebrate the person who matters most: you. That’s why Groupon is proclaiming December 11th as Self-Gifting Day, a 24 hour-period for shoppers to buy something for themselves.
Since the concept of self-gifting may be foreign to some, we put together this user-friendly practice page so anyone can hone their self-gifting skills, risk-free.
How it Works
- Click the “Buy” button
- There’s a chance* a free mystery gift will appear
- Print out your mystery gift and fly free—free from the bounds of only buying gifts for other people.
- Optional: throw mystery gift into nearest bonfire
* 100% chance that the free mystery gift is a printable paper airplane template
Following these steps will allow you to experience the sweet, sweet joy of self-gifting while training your finger to overcome its fear of buying gifts for you. As an added bonus, the free mystery gift will definitely rekindle your dormant passion for paper airplanes.
