On February 14th, couples express their admiration for one another by exchanging cards, candy, flowers, and other tokens of affection. But what about those who are single on Valentine’s — they get to spoil and treat themselves, instead!
If you’re flying solo this year, there are so many awesome and empowering activities you can do to make this day special! And what better company to keep than your awesome self? This year, make February 14th a self-love journey. Learn how to spend Valentine’s Day single by treating yourself to the best day ever with these activities!
Self-Care Equals Self-Love
Whether it’s a new haircut, a relaxing massage, or a mani/pedi, spoiling yourself for Valentine’s Day is a great way to boost your confidence and make you feel fabulous. If you’re on a budget, grab a sweet-smelling bath bomb, light a candle, and mellow out in the bathtub with some of your favorite tunes.
Bring the Squad Together for Galentine’s
Would you rather spend Valentine’s with your girl squad? Bring the crew together and celebrate Galentine’s Day instead! Shower your friends with love and adoration by doing a girls’ night full of laughter, drinks, movies, and karaoke, or opt for a bestie’s brunch at your favorite go-to restaurant!
You Grow Girl!
If you’re looking for an instant mood booster, pick up a bouquet of your favorite flowers and display them in a beautiful vase. Flowers are a great way to spruce up your living room or workspace, and choosing roses or any other delicately-scented variety will remind you of their beauty every time you walk by. If you want to go a step further, add some fresh flower petals to a warm bath for a luxurious, spa-like experience.
Take a Hike
If you’re not too far from a hiking trail or nature area, plan a day hike — solo or with a friend. Pack a picnic lunch with your favorite foods, and maybe even a bottle of wine to enjoy. If you’re in a colder climate that isn’t conducive to a mid-February hike, make your favorite meal or order takeout from your favorite restaurant and enjoy a cozy, indoor picnic right in your living room.
Find Valentine’s Singles Events
From Valentine’s Day singles parties to speed dating events, there’s likely a group of people just like you looking to make the best out of this awesome holiday. You can even make it a celebration by bringing your single pals along for the ride. Whether you’re single and loving it or looking for that special someone, you’re bound to have a great time!
Furry Friend Date
A pet can be the purr-fect companion for Valentine’s, so spend some time celebrating with your favorite fur baby. You know they’re always there for you, so why not do something nice for them too? Take them to a park for a nice day out, and shower them with extra head pats, cuddles, and some special treats. And if you’re feeling artistic, join a Paint Your Pet event at your local Painting with a Twist to have something to remember you and your pet’s special day!
Paint and Sip
If you’re looking for something fun and unique for Valentine’s Day, look no further than a Painting with a Twist paint and sip event. Join in on a love-themed group painting event and let your creativity run wild! Bring your bubbly and make a new friend (or two) while you paint your masterpiece. You’ll leave the studio feeling inspired, creative, and oh so in love with yourself and your beautiful work of art!
