Left your Christmas shopping a bit late again? Us too. But do not fear, because we've come up with a selection of really brilliant Christmas present ideas that are perfect for your single friends. We don't really buy into the notion of Christmas being a woeful time for single people, as there's an awful lot of fun to be had when you're unattached and able to do whatever you fancy, but that doesn't mean that you shouldn't buy your mates presents that reflect where they are in their lives. Here are five ideas that we think they'll love.

A super hot outfit that they'd never buy themselves

Once people develop a 'look' it can be very hard indeed to get them to change or vary it in any way, which can be frustrating when they're still insisting on wearing that bobbly knitted smock/knackered t-shirt when you know they could be rocking a slinky sparkly dress/crisp new shirt. Take matters into your own hands and buy them something new, then insist they wear it. They'll thank you for it when they start turning heads with their hot new look and newfound confidence. 


Take them out for a night out on the tiles

However much everyone claims the opposite is true, things do change between you and your friends when you're in a relationship, especially in the initial stages when people tend to disappear off the face of the earth, only popping up occasionally on Facebook to exclaim over their new found happiness and making their friends and acquaintances want to vomit into their keyboards. If you know you've been neglecting your single mates, promise them a good old fashioned night out on the town with no partners and lots of fun.

Get them a Netflix account

If your single friend spends a lot of time moaning about having too much time on their hands, sign them up to Netflix or a similar TV and film streaming place. Once they've got involved in Orange Is The New Black, House of Cards or Game of Thrones, they'll probably forget all about their single woes and you won't see them until they stop hibernating in the spring time.

Sign them up to MSF

This, of course, is the best gift you could possibly give them. Whether your mate is quite happily single, or they've spent the whole of the festive season weeping into their mulled wine because they haven't got anyone to kiss under the mistletoe, they will really appreciate the chance to go on a few dates, especially if they have been resistant to joining a dating website by themselves. That is the beauty of mysinglefriend.com - you can get the ball rolling without them and then be there to support them every step of the way. They'll thank you for it when they're loved up and settled down come next Christmas.
