And yes, before you say anything, still single and quite happy. My current plans are to stay home, watch Ireland play France in the second weekend of the Rugby Six Nations, and maybe have a relaxing bath before bed. However many of you will be scouring the internet over the next week or so trying to find a different Valentine’s Day gift for your significant other.
If you, like me, are alone on Valentine’s Day, read my post on how to show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day!
The email marketing has already started, as have the ones for “Galentine’s Day”, and to be honest, they’re quite heteronormative and cisnormative… As I said before, everything is either for him or for her. But what about the man in your life who would love a set of nail clippers and a nail file or buffer? Or the woman desperate for her very own tool box that is not pink?
Fear not! There will be no sign of Pinterest-style jars of notes, or crafts that are going to take you a lifetime to make, in this gender neutral gift guide. Also, please note. If your plan is to gift yourself to your partner? Maybe not the most original of ideas.
