You might be tempted to gift your single girlfriends with a subscription to Match.com, a case of wine or something having to do with cats, but we’d implore of you to do none of the above (Fine. Wine is okay, but only if bought in bulk.) Instead of giving her something which calls out her relationship status in a potentially negative way, opt for presents which celebrate all of the amazing things about life uncoupled. Here, our 7 favorite gifts for this freewheeling gal.
7 Gifts For Single Girls
Quarterlane Book Box
One of the greatest things about being single is all of the time you get to spend at your discretion, doing whatever it is you like best. Reading is generally among those activities that single people get to do more often than their coupled counterparts (should they so choose), so we love the idea of giving them a box of books they can bury themselves into for the holidays. Quarterlane curates quarterly book boxes based on themes like Wellness and Design and includes coffee table books, cookbooks and more.
Quarterlane Book Box, $105-$185
Know Yourself Prompt Cards
One of the other great things about being single is that you get to spend time working on you instead of working on your relationship. Aid your single besties in this endeavor by gifting them with these thought-provoking cards "designed to assist in a journey of self-knowledge."
Slip Silk Sleep Mask
Yet another benefit of single life is being able to sleep as late as you want to on the weekends, without interruption by bored boyfriends or screaming babies. Celebrate this enviable aspect of her life with the 100% silk sleep mask from cult (and Jen Atkin)-favorite Silk.
Slip Silk Sleep Mask, $45
Lush Bath Set
One of the things this writer loves most about being sans significant other is being free to luxuriate in her bathtub for an often embarrassing amount of time. This bath product gift set from Lush—featuring the brand's obsession-worthy bath bombs, bubble bars and luxe bath oils—is a dream for those who are likewise addicted to indulgent nightly soaks.
A Seamless Gift Card
Nobody doesn't want this gift. Trust us.
Seamless Gift Card, starts at $25
A Joy Of Dreams Notebook
The lives of single gals make for bestsellers—think Eat Pray Love, Are You There, Vodka? It's Me Chelsea, What I Was Doing While You Were Breeding and The Girl With The Lower Back Tattoo, to name a few. Make sure she's recording her adventures and misadventures somewhere by gifting her with one of these fun and flirty notebooks.
A Diamond Ring
We've never understood why coupled gals get the monopoly on diamonds, nor do we subscribe to the thinking that gem-encrusted rings are reserved for those newly betrothed. If you're looking to spoil the single girl in your life, a little non-relationship-status-dependent bling will do so quite nicely.
