It’s time to change the way single ladies and men think about Valentine’s Day. While it’s a loved-up holiday for passionate couple, it can be a pretty sad day for those who are going solo. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be like this. It’s the perfect day to indulge in some self-love and self-care whether that means eating a pizza or getting a massage. Here’s some tips on how to make the most out of a single V-Day
Your Fave Takeout And A Movie
Nothing says #treatyoself like your fave cuisine and a movie marathon. It’s your time to shine. Take a break from your weekly food restrictions and indulge in your favourite eats. While you’re at it, start your very own marathon with your celeb of choice. What better than eating mass amounts of food while staring at your biggest film crush for the night? Single goals.
If you’re the fancy, dish out some dollars and take good care of yourself. What a way to celebrate Valentine’s Day alone then to have a whole day of pampering. Book yourself in to the nearest spa and relax. Massages, facials, manipedis, saunas and steam rooms. The possibilities to spoil yourself with self-care are endless.
Wine And Dine
Who said wine and dinner was the best for couples? Anything you can do with a partner, you can do alone. Whether you’re dropping some pennies on a good bottle of wine or looking for something cheaper, cooking yourself up a big bowl of pasta (garnished, obv) and serving a large glass is what we’re here for. And since there’s no one around, there’s no need to keep it classy. Bring on white-girl-wasted.
Shop Til You Drop
Retail therapy. Now THAT’S a V-Day treat. It’s finally the day to pick up those jeans you wanted…or the bag that was a little out of your price range, or that ring you saw in the window. Today’s the day to give yourself what you want and shop til’ you drop. Because who needs love when you’ve got shopping?
Go Away For A Day
I don’t know about you guys, but sometimes all you need is a little vacay to get away from the hustle and bustle of Valentine’s Day overhype. It doesn’t have to be anything too fancy. Staying in a hotel in your own city can always feel like a holiday with room service and pool days. Taking a road trip up to a beach location is perfect time away for one to bask under the sun. There’s plenty great options to take a quick trip away.
Single Valentine’s Day can be as good as you want it to be. Treat yourself this year and make Valentine’s Day great again.
