Valentine's Day gifts for single women
Feast: Lobster Gram
Bing Shopping | Lobster Gram
Since we're all about the unabashed pampering here, let's skip the appetizers and get right to some fabulous feasting. Lobster Gram delivers decadence, including whole lobsters, tails, lobster cakes and hearty chowder. (Maryland-style crab cakes and jumbo prawns are also on offer if you’re craving a different crustacean.)
Feast: Cake pops
Bing Shopping | Cake pops
No joyfully indulgent meal is complete without dessert. One word: cake. Two : cake pops. There’s no better way to improve on the perfection of cake then by enrobing rounds of it in chocolate, sprinkling it with extra dustings of sugar and popping the bite-sized baby on a stick.
Feast: Cocktail party gift baskets
Bing Shopping | Cocktail party gift baskets
Kick off your alternative Valentine’s Day celebration with baskets overflowing with saucy party spirit. These collections are packed with snacks, nibbles and noshes, and, of course, they include delicious mixers for martinis, mojitos, margaritas and more. (Some of these bountiful baskets provide the booze, too.)
Feast: Liqueur-filled chocolates
Bing Shopping | Liqueur-filled chocolates
Want to give a single gal pal a treat for Valentine’s Day but don’t know if she’d prefer a bottle of wine or a box of chocolates? Double her fun with the rush of liqueur-filled gourmet chocolates. Collections of these colorfully wrapped treats are a relatively inexpensive and are very grown-up way to indulge.
Feast: Mini cupcake maker
Bing Shopping | Mini cupcake maker
Give a woman a cupcake and you’ll treat her for a day, give her a cupcake maker and you’ll treat her for … OK, maybe not a lifetime, but she’ll remember your kindness every time she bakes up a warm and delicious batch of cupcake goodness.
Fun: The Ex knife set
Bing Shopping | The Ex knife set
A solo Valentine's Day can be mildly annoying, quite melancholy or, depending on the circumstances and amount of syrupy-sweet advertising one is exposed to, utterly atrocious. Thank goodness humans come equipped with a sense of humor. Throw a little of the dark variety her way with The Ex knife holder.
Fun: Zazzle and Café Press
Sometimes only a dose of sarcasm will do. Find a myriad of anti-Valentine's Day gift ideas at Zazzle and Café Press, two purveyors of sassy snark that’s plastered on T-shirts, coffee mugs, buttons and even fussy fridge magnets (and aprons!) for the cynic at heart.
Fun: Ed Hardy ‘Love Kills Slowly’
Bing Shopping | Ed Hardy ‘Love Kills Slowly’
Share it while you wear it with Ed Hardy's famous "love kills slowly" tattoo-inspired line of edgy and colorful tees, sweatshirts, hoodies, backpacks and footwear. Even the line of sexy underwear has this endlessly popular motto emblazoned on it, meaning you can look cute and make an important philosophical point at the same time.
Fun: Film Festival in a Box
Bing Shopping | Film Festival in a Box
Do you have a bunch of single friends who are looking for something better to do on Valentine’s Day than simply trying to ignore it? Invite them over for a bit of cinema-inspired fun that has zero to do with romance (unless, of course, you choose the “Love” collection. We’d suggest “Powered by Girls” and “Dark Comedies.”)
Fun: The frog prince
Bing Shopping | The frog prince
As the saying goes, ya gotta kiss a lot of ’em. If she’s a hopeful romantic, remind her that it takes a leap (sorry) of faith to get back into the dating game and find her prince. Cute crowned frogs are offered as figurines, plushes, pins, paperweights and even -- very practical -- stress squeeze toys.
