* Party supplies, games and more
* Essentials for having the single best Valentine’s Day ever
* Might just get some sparks of romance going
Here’s everything you need to make the absolute most of your “singles awareness day.” Of course, you could spend the day moping and looking through all the social media feeds of your smug paired-up friends, but you’re too smart for that.
Single, paired, poly, or even if you’re a “unicorn,” you realize that jealousy over other people’s curated couple brands is a fool’s game. Give yourself, your friends and even your potential love interest a way better holiday with these actually fun games and V-day party accessories instead.
1. Mr Beer Homebrewing Kit
You don’t have to be a “hipster” with a Walt Whitman beard and genuine 19th-century flannel shirt on to enjoy the rewards of home-brewing. This kit can help. Now if only our culture’s idea of masculinity were as only-mildly-toxic as beer.
2. Ultimate Beer Mug
Once you’ve done your home brewing, it deserves a mug to match. This one is virtually spill-proof, pool-party friendly and best of all, is literally designed for double-fisting.
3. Wingman Shot Glass
Celebrate friendship and take one for the team, or rather, with the team, with the “wingman” shot glass. Technically it’s two shot glasses, but, like some of our college friendships, connected with a liquid bridge.
4. Ring Toss Game
A must for the game room or “man cave,” this ring-toss game is a wall-mounted version of the “state fair” classic.
5. Single and Ready to Mingle T-Shirt
Ironic or sincere, this shirt is a definite attention-getter for all the single ladies. For best camp value, pair with a fanny pack, dad hat or a golf visor.
6. The Man Game
We’re not sure what’s in the “Man” game, described as a game of “chip pitching” “knot tying,” and “chest thumping,” fun, though the photo offers some strange, hilarious clues: playing cards, dice, a ping pong ball and… a measuring tape? Do we want to know what’s being measured?
Named for the famous all-genre music festival, this board game is something of just about every drinking game.
Yes, It’s Almost Valentine’s Day and No, You Don’t Have To Give a Crappy Gift This Year
