Buckle up because we’re about to get a little sappy :D. Valentine’s Day is around the corner and you either love it, hate it or recognize it as just another day on the calendar. Either way, you’re going to see the usual; the malls are going to be flooded with people holding ridiculously sized stuffed animals, you won’t be able to get a reservation at your favourite restaurant and there’s definitely going to be a flower overload. For those of you, single or not, who want different ideas for Valentine’s Day, check these out.
If You’re Single
- Treat Yourself
Valentine’s Day when you’re single should be a day about yourself. Leave the couples to stress and instead, think about you for the day. Order your favourite food, catch up on a TV series, treat yourself to a spa day or simply take in all that extra sleep you’ve been missing. You’ll feel relaxed and recharged in no time.
- Hang Out With Friends
If your friends are single too then make a plan to hang out on Valentine’s night. Go to your favourite bar or have people over to your home for a game night. Either way, company is always appreciated! Plus, if your crew is still single the year after, you can make it a tradition!
- Help Someone Else
So you’re single but your best friend isn’t and they’re scrambling for an idea for their loved one. Why not be a modern day cupid and spend the day helping them plan and execute their romantic idea? You’ll be helping a friend and spending the day in a proactive way. Plus, it’ll be a lot of extra karma points!
If You’re A Couple
- Couples Massage
If you’re a couple that works tirelessly without rest most of the time then a couple’s massage is perfect. It’s a great way to spend time together, relax and keep away from the usual hustle and bustle of last minute dinner reservations.
- Cook Off
If you and your partner love to cook then amp it up by having a Cook Off! Take the usual idea of making dinner at home to the next level by choosing a dish you both love and trying to outdo each other. You’ll have a great time bonding and being competitive and you’ll have an amazing, double meal in the end!
- Recreate First Date
If you can remember the first date you went on, then why not recreate it? Ignite the past flame by returning to the spots where you had your first date. It’ll be a great reminder of your epic love story so far and you can even make it a tradition by adding little extras every year.
