Lately, I’m running on empty. I’ve had a few fires to put out and other contending fires to still manage. Welcome to life as a single mom. Surprisingly, I’ve handled it all really well– minus some sleepless nights and a little heartburn. I can thank my dad for the heartburn. Pretty sure genetically, he handed that down to me. But I digress.
Valentine’s Day is in 8 days (yay!), and with that said, this single mom could use a few Valentine’s gifts for anyone in the mood to buy me something. Wink.
And if you don’t personally feel like gifting me, I’m pretty sure any other single mom I know would like these gifts!
Starbucks Gift Card
Your single mom would love a coffee gift card because chances are … she runs on Dunkin or the ‘Bucks.
Someone to Make Lunch
I hate making school lunches. I would love someone to make my kid’s lunch for a week!
A Big Box of Godiva
You can hand pick the truffles she wants at Godiva, and damn, it’s delicious.
I need one. I want one. I MUST HAVE ONE!
Bring Her Dinner or Take Her Out
Relieve her burden. Take her to dinner! Bring her dinner! Give her the night off, already.
Massage or Mani/Pedi
Chances are if you’re a single mom, treating yourself comes with either intense financial guilt … or doesn’t come at all due to $ or time.
Treat a lady!
Champagne or Wine
A nice bottle will take the edge of the last X of days I’ve been kicking *ss as a single mom.
Cozy PJs or Lingerie
If you’re her friend, don’t buy her lingerie unless she’s feeling you, too.
If you’re more than friends, treat her to something beautiful. Bring chocolate too.
If you’re just friends, cozy pajamas with some hot cocoa is super sweet.
Watch Her Kid/s
Be a babysitter. Give her a break. Don’t text her as you’re watching her kids either, unless it’s urgent.
Do a Chore For Her
Do the groceries. Fold the laundry. Clean the house. Get dirty for her. Give her a day off.
Just Make Her Feel Special & Appreciated
X’s & O’s,
