Spring is almost here, which means that it is time to start making plans for that big tax return you are expecting. Wondering how best to spend it? We have a few great ideas. Read below to find out some cool purchases that you can make with your tax return, from hair extensions and spa days to travel and gifts.

Travel Someplace Warm

Are you feeling the winter blues? After a long winter, it is easy to get “cabin fever.” Of course, the best cure for cabin fever is to take a trip—to someplace warm, of course. Luckily, most Americans get their tax returns in the spring—the perfect time to plan a trip (even the act of planning the trip will help you feel warmer already). For some serious fun in the sun, we recommend renting a beach house, or going on a tropical cruise.

Buy Some Hair Extensions

In fact, we highly recommend using your tax return to buy some human hair extensions. Seriously, you will come to see this purchase as a lifesaver. How are hair extensions so amazing? Let us count the ways:
  1. You can clip them into your hair in a matter of seconds, giving you style on the go.
  2. They are fully customizable when it comes to style, cut, and color.
  3. They add length and body to your hair.
  4. They can cover up thinning hair/hair loss, as well as unwanted greys.
We have all spent our tax refunds on purchases that we end up regretting. This purchase will not be one of them.

Update Your Wardrobe

Speaking of style, a tax refund is the perfect excuse to update your wardrobe. With the arrival of spring, it is time to start thinking about spring outfits. Use that extra money to buy some breezy seasonal outfits that will be sure to make heads turn. New accessories – such as jewelry and handbags – make great purchases as well.

Have A Spa Day

Perhaps, when you get your tax return back, all you really feel like doing is pampering yourself. That is perfectly fine! If you are looking to totally spoil yourself with the money, why not treat yourself to a spa day? We’re talking massages, facials, body wraps, mani/pedis—the whole nine yards! You will feel so much better afterwards, and to us that feeling means money well spent.

Gift It

Do you know of anyone who has a birthday, or other special occasion, coming up? Tax return time is the perfect time to shop for them. If you are feeling really ambitious, you could even get a (huge) head start on your Christmas shopping. If you ask us, it is never too early to start thinking about Christmas shopping. Who knows, it might even get you in the Christmas spirit on one of those hot, sticky summer days!
