    31 Things You Need If You've Been Feeling Lonely

    We've got you.

    1. A deck of affirmation cards if you need a friendly reminder of how awesome you are. The best part about these cards is they're written with a dry sense of humor, so you'll still crack a smile even if you're feeling like a wet blanket.

    2. A ripped boyfriend pillow if you're in desperate need of some cuddles.

    3. Or a heated massager pillow if you prefer your dose of simulated human touch less romantic and more therapeutic.

    4. A pair of long-distance friendship lamps so your BFF will always be with you in spirit even if they're miles away. These lamps are also great for long distance romantic partners and family members.

    5. Some bag carriers since no one is around to help you carry groceries from the car to the front door. No more torturing your fingers!

    6. A foaming lavender bath to help turn your solitude into a soothing self-care Sunday.

    9. A clever and apropos "Spoon Me" ice cream cozy, because sweet snacks (not cold hands) are essential to enjoying solo nights at home.

    12. A silly cat hat so at least your four-legged friend can cheer you up. Let's be honest, pets are better company than humans anyway.

    17. A vacuum wine stopper, since drinking alone often means you'll have wine to spare. Just put this in the bottle to replace the cork, and your wine will be nice and fresh for when you're ready to finish it later.

    18. And a Guzzle Buddy that'll basically transform the whole bottle into your personal glass until you're ready to plug that vacuum stopper in.

    19. A curtain of twinkle lights that'll create the illusion of a peaceful evening under the stars. If you're spending the night alone, you might as well treat yourself to some romantic vibes. The best love is self-love!

    20. An essential oil diffuser, since being alone gives you plenty of time to meditate. This machine also doubles as a very silent humidifier, purifying the air in your home without disrupting your peace and quiet.

    21. A ridiculously plush fleece robe that'll make it you feel like you're on a solo staycation at a hotel instead of your home. If only this thing also came with some room service.

    22. And some slipper socks to go with your robe to keep yourself warm and cozy from head to toe.

    23. A sleek lift-top coffee table to keep all of your board games, books and other fun distractions within arm's reach. Even on nights you aren't expecting guests, you can fill this thing with as many goodies as you need to entertain yourself.
