20 Things To Do When You’re Single For The Holidays

Best Of SSM / Single Mommy Stuff / Slider / Slides / December 20, 2016

The holidays can sometimes be a difficult time for single people. All of your friends and family are doing couple and family activities and when you are single, you can sometimes feel like the third wheel when invited to those functions. Just because you don’t have a boo this Christmas, doesn’t mean that you have to sit around the house moping and watching ‘Insecure’ over and over again (although it is a good show), you can still enjoy the holidays with these 20 things to do when you are single for the holidays.

  1. Get a tree (fake or real) and decorate your home for the holidays.
  2. Turn the Christmas music on and do some baking for your friends and family.
  3. Find an Angel Tree and donate gifts for less fortunate children in your area.
  4. Grab a friend and go to a swanky hotel and take super cute Christmas pictures.
  5. It’s too late for Christmas cards but you can send out a New Years Card using the FreePrints app and uploading those cute pics you just took at the hotel.
  6.  Start a gratitude journal.
  7. Do a Vision Board for the new year.
  8. Invite your nieces and nephews over to make a gingerbread house together.
  9. Go see Christmas lights.
  10. Invite your friends and family over for brunch.
  11. Get a new hairdo to start the new year with a fresh new look.
  12. Have a spa day solo or with your bestie.
  13. Go visit a senior citizens home.  There are many seniors who don’t have family who come to visit them.  They will appreciate it.
  14. Make some hot coco and your favorite dessert and binge watch your favorite Christmas movies.
  15. Use Pinterest as inspiration and make a few Christmas DIY projects.
  16. Call your friends that you haven’t talked to in awhile.
  17. Volunteer at a shelter.
  18. Donate clothes that have not seen the light of day in the past year.
  19. Attend a couple of Christmas parties. You never know who you might meet.
  20. Don’t call your ex

Great tips to live by. These are also great for dealing with depression around the holidays, thank you for sharing!

I love the fact that you included interacting with other children like nieces or nephews during singlehood. Those types of memories are really a blessing to the children and I know my daughter loves it when she can spend time with her aunties and godmothers.

    Yes, it’s always fun to see Christmas through the eyes of children.

These are sll great ideas. But don’t worry, I was always the single sister in my 20s as my sisters alway’s had a boo. I waited for the right one and have been married now for 13 years. One sister never .artless and the other stayed married for 6 months. Be smart about it. Merry Christmas!

The only person that can truly bring you happiness is yourself so kudos to you for encouraging women to find their happiness without a man. While companionship is nice it’s not the end all to be all.

These are great tips. I’ve done some of these including decorating my tree for my nephew’s first Christmas and having a spa day while on vacation. It’s so easy to get depressed during this time of year. It’s important to look beyond it though.

    Yes, depression is so prominent this time if year. Hopefully, these tips will keep people’s minds off of being alone.
