One of the best things about Christmas is that you can expect some thoughtful gifts from your friends and family – and perhaps an extra special gift from your partner. If you’re on your own this year, fear not: we may be locked at home due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but our credit cards still work! We’ve rounded up a few must-haves for 2020 that you should buy…
Taylor Swift made the Cardigan a thing when she released her surprise album Folklore earlier in the year, and now it seems like crochet is back on the menu. It might be a skill that’s hundreds of years old, but crochet cardigans and dresses are cool and sustainable. Whether you buy a cardigan from an independent designer on Etsy or you get the wool and make your own cardigan from scratch, this is the season to embrace woolen clothing.
A handmade ring
Ideally, it’d be your boyfriend or girlfriend buying you a ring for Christmas, but if you’re looking for new jewelry and don’t want to break the bank, then treat yourself to a one-of-a-kind piece from the internet. After all, most of the shops are shut! Whether you opt for a ring that has your name engraved on it, or a stunning Claddagh ring with Irish tradition, there are virtually endless options available. Add a new ring or two to your 2021 collection.
For years, we’ve been asking Alexa and Google to turn on the heating and play our favorite music, but the truth is that we’re iPhone gals at heart. We’re really looking forward to getting our hands on Apple’s new $99 HomePod mini when it launches this month, as it comes with Siri and integrates with all of your Apple devices. The best part is that you can use it as an intercom system to send messages to your family downstairs – “hey mom, I want a Pepsi!”
If you’re tired of being single, now could be the ideal time to sign up to Tinder Premium and see who’s out there. The truth is that it’s probably a bit late now to find Mr. Right in time for the big day, but you can put the feelers out and see if you can find a new partner for the 2021 celebrations. If you need inspiration, watch Netflix’s Holidate – it’s the ideal chick flick and might give you some food for thought. Who needs a partner when you’ve got candy?!
Depending on where in the world you are, the chances are that your gyms have been closed for at least part of the year. The pandemic shows no signs of slowing down, and if you’re sick of working out in the local park, why not cancel your gym membership and buy some quality equipment so you can work out from your garage or spare bedroom? Women’s Health has also rounded up some affordable workout clothes that will help you look and feel your best.
