8 ways to treat yourself on Singles Awareness Day

Do your Gin

1. Make yourself a homemade cocktail.

Try your hand at mixology and say a big cheers to your independence. This gin-making kit is a bestseller on Etsy and features botanical blends like licorice root, lavender flowers and juniper berries. The package comes with twelve glass cylinders, two sleek glass bottles and recipes for concocting the perfect winter drink.

2. Give your body some much-needed TLC.

2020 was a long year — so gifting yourself with head-to-toe indulgence is fully justified. Skincare brand favorite Dr. Jart+ released a kit designed especially for sensitive skin, featuring a calming mist, serum and color-correcting treatment. (Say goodbye to all that pesky redness!) Added bonus points? This package has nearly 27,000 loves on Sephora.

3. Light a candle and take a long bath.

Nothing says self-care more than soaking in some luxurious bath time. Make the experience all the more calming when you light the celebrity-favorite candle Diptyque (Meghan Markle, Kate Hudson, Kerry Washington and Beyoncé are all fans). There are a ton of yummy options to choose from, but we love the Figuier/Fig Tree Candle, which smells like warm bark.
