Singles Day — the Chinese shopping day that’s left Black Friday far behind in second place for sales revenue — has arrived. And while crazy deals in Asia abound and Western markets get more and more involved in the annual festivities, let’s not forget who this holiday is all about — you.
Given its name to celebrate singledom in all its glory (chosen to take place today, 11/11, because the number “1” resembles an alone individual), today is the ultimate day for “treat yo’ self” style spends. So, in honor of priority number one, we’ve rounded up the very best things to splash out on in order to best nurture your single lifestyle.
From luxury loungewear to make those solo winter nights cozier, to vitamin supplements that’ll counteract those medical studies condemning single people to shorter lifespans, below we’ve done away with token deals to embrace singledom in all its glory.
Scroll on and click through for a gift from you, to you.
An Uber-Cozy Sweater
If ever girl-/boyfriend material were actually going to manifest in fashion, it’s surely sherpa. Known otherwise as “faux shearling” this fluffy Napa by Martin Rose T-Emin jacket is like wearing a hug.
Some Luxury Loungewear
Channel your inner-ASAP Rocky at home in Gucci’s shimmering Jacquard gown, which formed part of the rapper’s statement LACMA gala look last week. Alternatively, go all-out comfort with a full night set from Soho Home — the interiors offshoot of exclusive members’ club Soho House — which comes complete with mugs, hot water bottle, and coffee table book.
A Comprehensive Grooming Regime
With no-one around to call you out on tired-looking skin and a midnight shadow that’s grown far beyond sexy, MR PORTER’s restorative grooming kit has all bases covered.
Some Games Consoles
Embrace your love for gaming today and dedicate some time to the latest multiplayer platforms on a brand new PS4, or go retro and live vicariously through Ash and Pikachu on the Game Boy Color of your childhood… Simpler times.
Good Self-Help Books
Leave it to Monocle to step-up your eligible bachelor game with its “Guide to Better Living”, a beautiful coffee table book that’ll guide you through living your best single life. And because no-one’s going to do it for you, Action Bronson’s “F*CK THAT’S DELICIOUS” will upgrade those meals for one.
There’s no dressing this one up — swapping out a better half for a tub of pills is a hard sell. But with no-one keeping tabs on your health, some extra Vitamin D and Omega-3 can do no harm.
