8 Other Ways To Spend Valentine's Day

by - February 03, 2015

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner; a holiday designated for couples…Just because you're alone doesn't mean you don't have 8 other ways to spend Valentine's Day.

So what do you do if you’re single?

Trust me, there are things to do for singles; you just need to be optimistic and keep an open mind.

Here are my ideas of other ways to spend Valentine’s Day for singles:

1. Go out with Friends
Who better to spend Valentine’s Day with, than people who are in the same situation as you?

2. Watch Movies on Netflix.
Might I suggest 10 things I hate about you. (Ha-ha, kidding)

3. Have dinner with Family.
The whole purpose of Valentine’s Day is to spend time with the one you love, and while it may not be the same kind of love, family love is the kind that is unconditional.

4. Go on a shopping spree!
They don’t call it retail therapy for nothing, and I’m sure the mall will be less crowded.

5. Do something nice for a stranger.
Buy a stranger a coffee or leave a nice note for your waiter. It feels good to be kind to people.

6. Work on a project you’ve never had time for.
Have a book you’ve wanted to read but just haven’t had the time? With everyone else occupied, this is the perfect day to catch up on that.

7. Pamper Yourself!
This is where Lush products come in and they just released their Valentine’s Day products.

8. Bake Sweets.
Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to try out a new recipe. Might I suggest this one?

With that in mind, don’t see Valentine’s Day as a bad thing if you’re single. It’s perfectly okay to be single and that doesn’t mean anything is wrong with you. That’s what this list is about, celebrating this day for yourself and realizing your greatness. What do you like to do for Valentine’s Day? Please leave me a comment below and thanks for reading! ☺

  11. love these ideas! I'm not single, but when I was, I always spent the day exchanging pretty gifts with my close friends and going to dinner or something.
