"she bought it for herself"?

Hola Emanuel

That sentence could actually mean both:

"Laura se lo compró" (Laura bought it for herself) [comprarse algo = to buy something for oneself]

or 

"Laura se lo compró (Laura bought it for her/him/them) [comprar algo a alguien = to buy something for someone]

Saludos
