Valentine’s Day may well be about love, but who’s to say that it’s strictly for couples?
This February 14th presents you with the perfect opportunity to defy cupid (for now!) and spoil yourself with some solo pursuits, or take time to catch up with the friends that make you the happiest.
Here are some great ideas to ensure your Valentine’s Day is one you’ll love every minute of:
Let’s face it, spa days don’t come cheap, so why not host a DIY spa night in your very own front room?
Stock up the fridge with nibbles and drinks, invite your closest friends round and spoil yourselves with luxurious lotions and potions. Try out some new makeup or revitalise your skin with a face mask (add cucumbers for extra giggles).
Afterwards, relax in your favourite PJs while you sip on wine and paint your nails. Bliss!
If you’re not dating this Valentine’s Day, why not indulge in some wishful thinking?
Whether your perfect man is George Clooney or Zac Efron, you can still spend the night in with your favourite men through the power of a movie marathon. Genius!
By treating yourself to a film session of endless eye candy, your Valentine’s date is just a Play button away!
This Valentine’s Day falls on a Thursday, which for many shops means late-night shopping. While those in a relationship are racking their brains trying to buy the perfect gift for their partners, you can go shopping safe in the knowledge that you’ll whole heartedly approve of any gift you buy for yourself. So take yourself on a little shopping spree and splash out on something special just for you.
If you’re keen to stay away from the dating scene on February 14th, you could consider hosting a dinner party for your friends or family.
You needn’t be as skilled as Delia; the supermarkets do some perfect ready meals that will help you cheat your way to success! Or you could ask everyone to bring their own dish. It needn’t be anything fancy, just a night around the table with the ones you really love. Because that’s what Valentine’s Day is about – love.
