Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! And while this holiday is about love, it’s not just about the love of a significant other; it’s about love in its many forms. So, just because you’re single on Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you can’t have the best time! Here are some of the best ways to celebrate!
Have a Girl’s Night In (or Out!)
Nothing is better than spending quality time with your friend group – so why not do it on Valentine’s Day? A girl’s night can include lounging around in comfy clothes, eating pizza, and drinking wine, or it can consist of getting dressed to the nines and going out on the town!
Take Yourself on an Adventure
Whether exploring your city or taking a day trip to a nearby town you’ve never been to, an adventure is a great way to celebrate a single Valentine’s Day. Make sure to take lots of pictures and buy at least one cheesy souvenir to document your travels.
Take a Break from Social Media
If you’re a bit bummed this Valentine’s Day, it’s okay to take a break from Instagram and Facebook for a day or two until all of the V-Day pictures are old news.
Spas typically have special deals around Valentine’s Day, which means you and your bestie could score discounts on massages, pedicures, facials, and more. If a spa day isn’t your idea of a good time, take yourself shopping, out to lunch at your favorite spot, or to a movie. Whatever you do, do it all for you. You deserve it!
Take Advantage of Half-Priced Candy
Head to the store on Valentine’s night and grab your favorite chocolates or heart-shaped candies after they’ve been marked way down. And, yes, you can eat them in one sitting. We won’t tell!
Buy Yourself Flowers
It doesn’t matter who they come from; it’s nice to get flowers on Valentine’s Day. You won’t feel left out while everyone else is receiving them. While you’re ordering, go ahead and get your BFF a bouquet, too.
Take a Class
Cooking, pottery, jewelry making, fitness, you name it. Attending a class in a subject that interests you is a great way for you to enrich yourself and try something new.
Volunteer opportunities abound, from soup kitchens to libraries to animal shelters. And do you know what is better than sharing your Valentine’s Day with another person? Sharing it with shelter dogs that fall in love with you at first sight. No matter how you volunteer, you can leave knowing you helped better your community.
Don’t Text Your Ex
…Or that person you had a little fling with. We can’t stress this enough. In the end, is it worth it? Instead, be proud of yourself for not giving in to temptation!
