pockster :  I’ll second jewelry, possibly something that is suitable for everyday wear, or a new desk/home office, if you are now working from home. Also, please don’t feel guilty about spending: your work sounds critical to combatting the current pandemic. Plus, if people who can afford to spend also slow their spending, this will prolong the economic recession and hinder the recovery.

pockster :  I like the jewelry idea. It will always be a reminder of how much hard work you’re doing and how the nature of your job is to help fight the corona virus during this time. You deserve it and thanks for doing what you do!

bear123 :  hmmm I disagree about this being tone deaf. Sounds like OP is working hard for the cause and it’s great that someone keeps their job! 

Some ideas: a new couch or relaxing arm chair, a fire pit for the backyard, a new ring, home organization furniture for a more relaxing space, a portion donated to a charity your passionate about. Save it for a few months and get a membership at a cool gym.

I’m all for a fun distraction right now. Is there any clothing or household item you would love to upgrade? Some ideas: fancy espresso maker, silk pajamas, expensive lounge-wear, expensive bras/underwear, new bedding (especially super comfy good quality sheets!), expensive jacket, shoes, new piece of jewelry, new house decor/furniture.

That’s basically my own current wishlist. lol

If I had the space for it, I’d get one of those fancy massage chairs

Since you’re a skincare person I’d get all the stuff for an at home facial. Deep peel pads, Vitamin C serum, mask. I am all about brightening and smoothing out fine lines. I’ve always wanted to get one of those blackhead vacuums, also.

i was gonna suggest putting it towards a Chanel bag, but then I read that you are already putting your larger bonus towards that. Which bag are you aiming for?

I personally would use that $750 towards a pair of designer shoes. You’ve been working so hard and you deserve to treat yo’self!!

Use it towards a wallet or an accessory to go with your future bag?

pockster :  thank you for all the behind the scenes work!!!

Im thinking……. maybe something soothing? Im thinking mattress (i know, i may be boring but i wonder if you need something soothing….. i dream of plush pillows and mattresses). Or some fanciness; pay and match a Louis Vuitton item? (another dream of mine). A fancy watch?

bear123 :  oh dear. In a world a uncertain as it is right now,  you can’t even see that someone who has worked hard could wish to rightfully reward themselves? I’m glad not everyone is on a big downer …

OP, I’d be on the gucci online store ready to click “add to cart”. 😎

An olivia von halle silk pajama set and the remaining money would go towards lush bath products. Hopefully you can get a couple of hours for yourself to relax and enjoy those purchases.

I vote a new wedding band or some cool right hand jewelry to wear for special occasions. 🙂

pockster :  Bee, the world right now is a very dreary and scary place. You’re doing your best to make it less so for the benefit of many. So I say…
