Being alone on Valentine’s Day when it seems like everyone has plans or someone to spend it with can be tough. It’s very easy to feel like you’re missing out on a big day when it’s all you hear about on social media and all you see in shops. There can be many reasons why you’re spending Valentine’s Day alone. Either you haven’t found someone special yet, your partner is away, you find it difficult to leave the house or you just might not be a fan of the holiday. At some point in our lives, we’ve all spent Valentine’s Day alone, whatever the reason is, but it doesn’t have to be a difficult day. I’ve created this list of 7 things to do if you’re spending Valentine’s Day alone so no matter what you can still have a great day!

Pamper Yourself

Book yourself in to get your nails or your hair done or just put on a facemask and have a bath at home. Whatever kind of pampering it is that makes you feel relaxed, refreshed and happy just do it!

Buy Yourself a Little Something

Valentine’s Day is a day where couples usually buy each other a little something so why not treat yourself to a new piece of jewellery, clothing item, makeup products or anything else you’ve had your eye on.

Order your Favourite Food

Whether it’s a Chinese or Indian takeaway, pizza, fish and chips or even just a Mcdonalds, order and enjoy some of your favourite food.

Cook a New Recipe

If you’re not in the mood to order food and there’s a recipe you’ve been wanting to try now is the time to do it! Pour yourself some wine, put on your favourite playlist and cook something new and delicious.

Watch Your Favourite Movie or TV Show

In my opinion, there’s nothing better than sitting down with some snacks and binge-watching a show on Netflix or watching one of my favourite movies. It’s a great way to pass the time and will keep you entertained.

Buy Yourself Some Flowers

Spruce up your home with some bright and pretty flowers!

Eat All the Chocolate

One of the best things about Valentine’s Day is all the chocolate being pushed to the front of the stores. Buy some of your favourites and enjoy a night of indulgence! You can probably pick some more up the next day at a discounted price too.

That’s everything on my list of things to do if you’re spending Valentine’s Day alone. Remember, just because you may not have someone to spend it with this year doesn’t mean you won’t have someone next year. Plus, you can still have a fantastic day to focus just on yourself!

    I’ve spent more valentines days single than in a relationship and honestly it used to bum me out a little when I was younger but now I’m fine with it and don’t think “oh I’m single, why can’t I find anyone.” These are all great ideas xx

      Yeah that’s understandable, it’s easy to feel bummed out about these things, especially when you see so many people on social media going out and having a good time. Despite being in a relationship for 8/9 years I’ve spent more Valentine’s Days alone as we were long distance for most of it. But buying yourself a little something, treating yourself to some of your favourite foods and having a chilled night in can really perk up your mood and give you something to look forward to on the day ? xx
