Whether you are single or just fucking hate Valentine’s Day, this Anti-Valentine’s Day gift guide is for you. It’s not really about gifts and more about self indulgence and copious amounts of “me time”.
Ben & Jerry’s
Not for wallowing but because it’s tasty. Who needs Valentine’s Day when Ice cream is better than sex anyway, am I right? I’m right aren’t I. Ben & Jerry’s have recently brought out a new selection of vegan ice creams and they are amazing! I’ve tried the Alpro ice creams and wasn’t a fan but Ben & Jerry’s know their shit and the Chunky Monkey one is amazing! It’s banana flavour with chocolate chunks and walnuts. They also have a vegan Chocolate Fudge Brownie and Peanut Butter & Cookie flavour which I am yet to try but let’s face it, they’re going to be amazing.
Need I say more? My personal faves are Monty Bojangles Truffles and Guylian Chocolate Seashells. You can’t go wrong with seashells.
Netflix and chill…
Talking about ice cream, there is nothing like a pint of Ben and Jerry’s whilst curled up on the sofa whilst binge watching various shows on Netflix. Fuck Valentine’s Day, I do this daily. Let’s face it, that what we would rather be doing than getting dressed up to the nines and doing the cum run slightly drunk on romance (and wine).
Shows that are quite frankly epic and definitely binge worthy that I whole heartedly recommend are:
Jane The Virgin – Rom-com come drama, telenovela following Jane, a devout Catholic who ends up being artificially inseminated. This one is full of surprises and has a tonne of episodes so great for a long term binge.
Stranger Things – After her son goes missing, a Mother has to fight terrifying forces from the even more terrifying “Upside-down” to save him. If you haven’t at least started watching this, where have you been? Also, Millie Bobbie Brown as Eleven is fantastic.
The End Of The Fucking World – A road trip with James, who is sure he is a psychopath and Allysa who is a moody 17 year old in a bid to find her real father.
Dexter – A blood splatter analyst for the Miami PD come serial killer. I binge watched all 96 episodes in like 2 weeks and don’t regret it.
How to Get Away with Murder – I binge watched all 3 seasons in 6 days. It’s about a bunch of law students who get wrapped up in a murder with their criminal defence professor.
Games, games and more games…
There is nothing like sitting down and playing a fucking good game and getting lost in another world. Or shooting the shit out of stuff, you know, whatever floats your boat.
A bit of pampering…
There is nothing like a good face mask, unless you’re me who went to get one out of my basket earlier and the entire fucking shelf fell down. All I wanted to do was have a bit of pampering but the world had other ideas. Anyway, providing your walls aren’t as shit as mine, a good face mask does the wonders.
Mask of Magnamity from Lush is a good shout, it’s refreshing, clarifying, exfoliating, all the ing’s you could ever want in a face mask.
And last but not least, the So Divine Ooh La La Flower Vibrator*; who needs a dick when you have a flower?
