Ladies, although it seems as if the holidays is the time in which it would be perfect to be in that perfect relationship with that perfect someone let me tell you something….you can have a perfect and delicious holiday all on your own! For all those who fear facing Christmas solo, here are 7 things you can do during the holidays which will possibly make you even a little grateful that you are attached to anyone.

1. Invite all your girlfriends over to bake cookies and watch The Holiday

Get a slumber party of your best girlfriends to come over to watch holiday movies. Although it may depress you and make you a tad bitter that Jude Law isn’t drunkingly showing up at your doorstep, it will remind you to hold out for a hot British guy and not run back to that emotionally unavailable idiot who cheated on you.

2. Purchase a gift for yourself.

Why should you have to spend all that money on others? Time to be a little selfish and purchase something for yourself. It’s your Christmas too after all!

3. Holiday Party

Have a holiday party at your house and be shameless- invite everyone on your Facebook friends list. Don’t be afraid of people reading into it for after all, it’s the holidays, you are supposed to be warm and inviting. Be sure to also have Christmas inspired drinks such as Cookie Cocktails, or taking shots in candy cane shot glasses.

4. Go Caroling and Terrorize Your Neighborhood!

Time to get back at that neighbor with the loud dog! Get a bunch of friends together, make some hot coco, and go out and sing some of your favorite Christmas carols.

5. Feed the Homeless

You think being single is a big problem? Help out people who don’t know where their next meal is going to come from. It will not only be comforting to know how good you have it, but give you a new perspective on what is important.

6. Go On An Adventure

Get out of town and go on a crazy adventure! Log on to a travel site and if you are on a budget, book the cheapest flight you see to a random destination. You never know who you are going to meet!

7. Make A Vision Board

Get a bunch of old magazines and a bulletin board and decide all the things you want in the new year. By setting goals and making a plan, you will feel like you have something to look forward to.
