If you didn’t snag yourself an S.O. this Winter, don’t fret. You don’t need someone else to make Valentine’s Day memorable. Take the day of love into your own hands and make it about you! We don’t want you to let another Holiday pass without you giving yourself proper self-care time. Self-care comes in many different forms and we have a few ideas to make sure you are taking care of you this Valentine’s Day.
Buy yourself flowers
You don’t need a significant other to buy you flowers, so go ahead and order some Valentine’s Day flowersfor yourself! FTD has the most beautiful arrangements to choose from. You are guaranteed to find something to show yourself some love. Roses, plants, bouquets, oh my! There are so many options, we won’t be surprised if you choose more than one. Oh, and did we mention they will be delivered right to your door? That means you can stay in your PJs and face mask to receive your gift to yourself.
Cook yourself a meal
Making a meal for yourself can significantly boost your mood! One of the best parts about being single is that you don’t have to ask anyone else for their opinions, you get to do exactly what you want, make whatever meal you are craving, you pick which movie you are going to watch for the evening, and no one will complain if you leave the dishes to be washed tomorrow. You will feel accomplished in the kitchen and have a delicious meal.
You know that new coat you have been eyeing? Or was it that new pair of shoes you had your eye on? Whatever it was, we think you should pull the trigger and get it! It is time to take care of yourself and that includes getting a present you actually want. No more cheesy Valentine’s tchotchkes or stuffed animals you are going to donate anyway. Get yourself something worthwhile, that will really say, “I love you, me.”
Buy a present for someone in your life
It is nice to buy yourself something, but don’t be afraid to get your loved ones something, too. If you aren’t sure who to buy something for, think of those in your life that are also single, someone who lost their significant other, or someone who maybe hasn’t bought themselves something in a while. It doesn’thave to be something elaborate, just something to let them know you are thinking about them. A framed photo of the two of you, a gift card for coffee, or a simple “get what you want” Venmo payment. It will warm their hearts to know you have lots of love for them.
Video chat with your single friends
If all your friends nearby are spending time with their person, set up a video chat with your single friends from all over. Make sure you dress to the 9’s on the call, that way you feel and look your best! Pick a time that works best for everyone and get to chatting. If no one is really in the mood to talk, you can all stream the same movie and watch it together! This way, no one is truly on their own this Valentine’s Day.
Have a yummy dessert
If you don’t want to make something for yourself, it is time to indulge and get a yummy dessert! Get to your local sweet shop and pick out your favorite treat. Cookies, cake, brownies, cake pops, or chocolate covered strawberries, the possibilities are endless. And one of the best parts is, you don’t have to share with anyone! Whatever you get, it is all yours to enjoy, so we hope you do!
This is the perfect opportunity to show yourself some love. Happy Valentine’s Day! We hope you enjoy your day dedicated to you, you deserve it.
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
