All my single ladies, now put your hands up

Valentine’s Day can feel a bit overwhelming with all the lovebirds around town, but that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it too! Read about a few ways you, too, can enjoy Valentine’s Day if you’re feeling unsure. So, whether you’re an eligible bachelor or a single lady there’s something for everyone.

Go out with your parents

Since Valentine’s Day is all about love, why not show your parents how much you love them?! You don’t need to be in a relationship to have fun on the 14th! Maybe plan a game night, and you can reconnect after the hectic holidays or even watch some old home videos. Parents deserve to be appreciated, too, and this is an excellent opportunity to show them how much you care.

Buy yourself flowers

This might sound like something out of a cheesy Hallmark movie, but that’s perfect for Valentine’s Day. Sometimes, you need to treat yourself, and even the littlest things make the biggest difference. If worst comes to worst, at least they’ll add a little something to your bedroom. I’d run out and get those flowers early in the morning before all the love birds beat you to it.


I’m sure we all know about Gal-entines Day, but I’ll explain for those of us that aren’t familiar with the holiday. Galentine’s Day is a day in which woman celebrate their female friendships. It is unusually celebrated on February 13th, but who said the ladies couldn’t celebrate both days? You could all get glammed up and go out for a night on the town. Maybe get some dinner and finish the night off with dessert, which is the best way to end the night.

Self-care day

For those who are a little more reserved, staying home and doing some self-care could be an option. We all get caught up with work, school and that can be stressful. Sometimes, all we need is a day of relaxation. You could take a long bath and if you’re feeling fancy and even throw in a bath bomb. Order some takeout and curl up with a good book if that’s more your style. You could light a candle and take time to forget about what’s going on in your life.

Get things done

Remember that old bookshelf you never built? Or that closet you’ve been meaning to clear out? Not everyone is a fan of Valentine’s Day, and that’s perfectly fine. So, instead, take this opportunity to get those things done around your house you’ve been pushing off.
