Single Single – The Little Grey Girl


... not sorry & shopping

Anyone else seem to be overwhelmed by the red hearts that are everywhere? Card shops, the supermarket, shops generally... I forgot that from early February, everything must be red, shiny and heart-shaped. 

If you are single, the run-up to Valentine's Day is never that great. As a very, very single girl, I've decided this year that, instead of moping that I don't have a valentine to give me (overpriced) flowers (that will die very soon after 14 February anyway) or a gift that I really didn't want, I'm going to buy myself something I really, really want and celebrate just being me and single. So I thought I'd share some ideas for brilliant presents we single ones can buy for ourselves or use as helpful, (maybe not so subtle) hints for a loved one to buy for us - and not just for Valentine's Day either! Because we're worth it all year round, right? Right!

No matter what your budget or marital status, I hope this list gives you something to treat yourself or to drop that subtle hint to the special person in your life. 

Happy Valentines!
