1) Be your best friend’s secret admirer
Natalie says, “My most memorable Valentine's Day was when my best friend in high school and I planned to be each other’s secret admirer and each class we would leave each other gifts and then after school we gave each other balloons and went to have a sushi dinner together. “
2) Go old school and pass out elementary V-Day cards at work
Leslie says, “What I remember the most is those little Valentine’s Day cards you gave out to your entire class, and everyone would be excited to see what card they got. I think that made Valentine’s Day fun because it wasn’t just about romance, it was about sharing with others. However, on the romantic side of things, my parents have been married for 66 years and every year since they’ve been dating, my dad gets my mom a box of chocolates. And then he eats it all. It’s cute.”
3) Hit up a yoga sesh and make new friends
Enjoy a free yoga class with friends or make some new ones... did someone say post-work out happy hour?
4) Hit the town with your girlfriends
Caitlyn says, “I spent Valentine’s Day with my fellow single sorority sisters. We made dinner, had some beers, and then headed out to the square. It was great…we laughed, danced, drank, and the bars weren’t crowded. I guess couples don’t see bar hopping as particularly romantic.”
5) Pamper yourself to an at-home spa session
Raid your cupboards for some DIY face mask ingredients and make your own at-home spa while relaxing on the sofa, watching your favorite movie and curling up with your best blanket.
1) Have a picnic
Holly says, “My boyfriend and I wanted to celebrate our first V-Day in Miami doing something we could only do here so we packed a picnic, a nice big blanket, and went to the beach. It was great because not a soul was there. We enjoyed Casola’s Pizza, watched the sunset, and listened to country music playing from my phone.”
2) Walk the aisles of your favorite grocery store
Portia says, “Every year my boyfriend and I go to Costco for Valentine’s Day to avoid the hustle and bustle going on at restaurants. We take our time and stroll through every aisle.”
3) Take a bike ride downtown
Bring out your bike or rent one and cruise the city together. If you’re the small-town type, ride your bike through some back roads while the sun sets (with all safety precautions observed of course).
4) Netflix and let’s be honest, probably some chill too
