Single's Day: Give Yourself Self Love This Christmas

In celebration of this year’s Single’s Day we’re turning off Hinge and looking after the most important relationship we’ll ever have, the one with yours truly.

While Christmas may be a time to spread good tidings to everyone we know, it’s also the perfect time to spread our legs and get to really know ourselves (inside and out).

From new toys to precious time alone, in this blog we give you a few ways to truly care for yourself this Christmas.

Seduce Yourself

Just because you’re single doesn’t mean you have to miss out on a little festive romance. While many of us may knock one out in front of a Married at First Sight marathon, for a really brilliant solo session it pays to set the mood.

While we don’t exactly mean you should surprise yourself in lingerie with a bucket of chocolate covered strawberries (although that does sound fabulous). Taking the time to relax, unplug and arouse yourself can result in some incredible self love.

Simply lighting some scented candles (to engage all of your senses), putting the lights down low and turning on a film you know gets your engine running is a great way to add a little sensuality to your night in.

Treat Yourself

Christmas is the time for giving and who better to give to than yourself? While we may find it easy to splurge on the people we love, sometimes we forget to look after ourselves.

Whether you’ve never owned a sex toy, or have an old faithful that’s been hanging on for years, it may be time to splurge. Self pleasure products, such as vibrators and prostate massagers are continuing to get more and more advanced, meaning your battered old bullet vibrator may be seriously out of date.

Just because you don’t have a partner right now doesn’t mean you don’t deserve the best sexual pleasure. With incredible offerings, such as Fleshlight, The Greedy Girl and The Womanizer on the market there's no reason to not be having incredible orgasms regularly.

Love Yourself

We get it, sometimes in this cold hard world loving yourself is a full time job. But damn it is work worth doing. Why? Because (and say it with us) if you can’t love yourself, how the hell are you going to love anybody else?

Self love comes from accepting your body and mind faults and all, it means promising to care for yourself unconditionally, there are no lotions or potions that can do that, it comes from within. However, taking the time to indulge your body, your skin and your senses is a good place to start on the road to self love.

Simply scheduling a long soak in the bath rather than a rushed shower is an act of self love. Filling your home with aromas that make you feel calm and luxurious is an act of self love. And having a good old session exploring all the settings on your vibrator is (low and behold) an act of self love.

Time Alone is a Gift

Christmas can be chaotic. Whether you’re travelling to see family or trying to juggle countless holiday parties, by the end of December we can all feel a bit burnt out - that’s why time alone really is a gift.

Whatever self love looks like to you, be it an all night menage a moi, or simply a little private treat under the tree make sure you’re prioritising your sexual happiness this festive season.

Treat yourself this Christmas
