Looking for some things to do if you're spending Valentine's Day alone? Valentine’s Day is a special day for some and others could care less about it. What people fail to realize is that it doesn’t have to be boring. Most importantly you don’t have to be in a relationship to celebrate the “holiday of love”! You’re probably thinking, “Valentine’s Day has never been a holiday for single people”. But I’m here to tell you things have changed. It’s all about love right? Then show yourself some love and spend the day having fun! Here are some fun things to do if you're spending Valentine's Day alone.
1 Spa Day
A spa day is one of the best things to do if you're spending Valentine's Day alone. This is definitely an excuse to pamper yourself. There are a lot of people on a budget, so you can have a spa day at home. Wash your hair, give yourself a manicure and pedicure, put on a face mask, take a relaxing bubble bath and wear your favorite outfit!
2 Order Your Favorite Takeout
This is the perfect time to order your favorite foods and gather all of your favorite snacks. What better way to indulge in things you normally wouldn’t have! Maybe pepperoni cheese pizza or Ben and Jerry’s ice cream.
3 Binge Watch Netflix
Why not spend the day or evening watching your favorite shows or movies. It’s actually fun watching TV alone, you don’t have to worry about anyone interrupting or giving out spoiler alerts! If you’re really into themes, watch romantic movies like The Notebook, 10 Things I Hate About You, or Titanic.
4 Buy Yourself Some Flowers and Chocolates
Who says a guy is the only one who can buy you things on Valentine’s Day? If you usually don’t do nice things for yourself, this is a great day to start. Maybe you’ve been eyeing a cute dress - get it! If you want to eat a bunch of chocolate, go ahead and do it! If you love flowers buy them. The point is to be selfish, you deserve it!
5 Throw a Slumber Party with Your Besties
If you hate being alone on Valentine’s, invite your girlfriends over! This is the best time to catch up on each other’s lives and talk about boys. All the things you were planning to do by yourself, will be even better with friends. You can do each other’s hair and makeup! If you don’t want to put that to waste, get dolled up and go out!
Remember this day isn’t just about being with a significant other. You don’t need to be in a relationship to be loved or love others. Cater to yourself and enjoy being who you are! Most importantly you don’t need a holiday to love yourself or show appreciation to your loved ones!
