Spend quality time bonding with family members
While you might not be dating someone special, there are other people in your life who will appreciate spending time with you.
Make time for your friends and family at this time of year, and spend the money you have saved by not having to buy a huge 'I love you' gift for a boyfriend, on special nights out with your best mates or something nice for your family.
Why not spend some time baking festive treats for your loved ones or enjoying wintery walks and talks, followed by a steaming mug of hot chocolate or a large glass of mulled wine!
Younger family members will be thrilled to see more of their cool aunt, big sister or cousin! And friends with young families will really appreciate you making time for them even if they are a bit jealous of your fabulous single life.
