Valentine’s day is not everyone’s cup of tea! When flying solo, the odds of looking forward to this day are near zero for most. February 14th does not hold much excitement and can be more like pouring salt on a wound.

But for some singletons; no S.O. is required to go about the day just like it was any other. It’s Valentine’s Day. Love yourself; nobody deserves your love more than you. So let’s plan this valentine’s day around celebrating love and care for your own self. Here I have listed some interesting ideas for slaying valentine’s day even when you’re single!

1. Hit The Gym

Health is wealth. Working out helps you make the day all about you putting effort into living a healthier life.

If you don’t hit the gym on a regular basis, this might just be the day. You can work out at home or at the gym, choose the one that best suits you. Starting to put energy into looking after your health will make you feel better.

If you already have a workout regime, you can try something different for the day. You can try lifting heavier weights or racing two extra laps. Your happy hormones will just make you more happy.

2. Spa-time

Everyone deserves some TLC! Love yourself by creating a spa-like atmosphere at home.

Spruce up the bathroom using stress-busting aromatherapy candles for relaxation and run a long bath using a mix of Epsom salts. An appropriate selection of soothing music, a good book and a nice glass of wine, and you’re good to go! 

3. Astrology Or Tarot Reading

Inquisitive whether cupid will pay a visit before next Valentine’s day? Will you get that raise? Or should you take that leap of faith? Dive in and learn what the stars or cards have to say about your destiny. A fun way to kill time. It’s entertaining and harmless!

4. Dinner For Happy Singles Only!

Host a dinner for all your single friends of both genders... who knows, someone might end up double at the end of the night! A fun get-together with a charcuterie board, a fine selection of cocktails, and delicious food accompanied by board games, gossip, and some swinging music are all the ideal blend to wind up the night!

5. Palentine’s Day

Being single doesn’t mean you have to spend Valentine’s Day by yourself moping all over the place! Take the time to appreciate the wonderful friendships you have in your life.

Palentine's day is officially on February 13th. But if you have a few single friends who are free on Valentine's day too, you can celebrate it on the 14th. Grab your single people gang and plan an eventful day: a karaoke bar where all of you can sing your lungs out, enjoy rounds of fun drinks, or munch on little snacks. The list is endless!

6. Bar Hopping 

This is one of the most effective and easily achievable plans. You can see this one as an extension of the previous idea as well.

Call up your single buddies and hit the happening bars of the town. Select the bars beforehand and check their availability. You can plan on the go. Start from one part of town and visit the close ones together. Try some new martinis may be to get some excitement into the night.

7. Indulge That Sweet Tooth!

You got that right!!! Get your baker’s hat on and spin up an endless array of goodies to satisfy you for the next 24 hours!

For a change, ease up on those calories and inches! Spin up a spread of delicious, mouthwatering comforts that call upon your most delicate memories–ones that fill you with contentment and warmth. The best thing is it’s all yours—and you don’t have to share it with anyone.

8. A Game Night

Nothing beats a good old-fashioned game night to keep your mind off the sentimental stuff. Monopoly, cards, uno, the game of life or any mystery board game is perfect for the occasion.

Invite a good number of people, order some booze and pizza, and play to your heart’s content. This can take a casual get-together to the next level. 

9. Jazz It Up!

Go on a makeover splurge at your favorite salon and pamper yourself to the fullest! Revamp with a brand new hair color or a haircut. Get a facial, tame that beard, trim those nails or go for a relaxing massage to unwind... whatever you fancy! The primary goal is to give yourself some me time!

10. Space Out

Escape far away from all the hustle and bustle of the city. The panoramic beauty of the countryside is like a breath of fresh air and can be the perfect way to reconnect and recharge.

You can also stargaze at night. The awe of the vastness of the star-filled sky makes us realize how insignificant we and our problems are. 

11. Be Bold

Off you go on a jaunt! Pack your bag and you are ready! Choose a nearby town you have never been to and start exploring! Go sightseeing or meet the locals to know more about their culture. Don’t forget to enjoy their local food. The opportunities are new and endless! Love yourself and your solo journey!

12. Digital Detox

Put your phone and computer away and treat yourself to a screen-free day. There are many ways to distract yourself! Have a good read, try painting, or take up a new hobby. Learn something new - a language, or a craft. Whatever rocks your boat, just go easy on yourself!

13. Visit A Museum Or Art Exhibition

You can plan an exciting day at the museum, if you like them, of course. You can also go to an art exhibition and indulge yourself in admiring the creative minds. These visits help in understanding human perception and, in turn, give us food for thought.

14. Watch A Movie

Go to the theatre, eat popcorn and just enjoy a good movie on the big screen. But if you feel too lazy to go out, you can always watch Netflix.

Watch something you have been planning for a long time but just didn't have enough time to do so. Binging on a all time favorite series or a new one is also a great idea. 

15. Lost And Found

Thanks to the power of the internet, location is irrelevant and not restricted. With so much going on in life every day, we hardly get time to keep in touch with the people we adore in our life; be they, friends or family. Halt and Reconnect. Take this perfect opportunity and do some catching up on this valentine’s day.

16. Laugh It Up!

As the saying goes; laughter is the best medicine. To lighten up the mood, laugh out loud with some stand-up comedy. If you don’t feel like going out, stream any of the latest specials on Netflix. Laughter makes you feel better as it boosts your mood and reduces stress.

17. Shop Till You Drop!

Shopping can be a distraction from your daily life. It is a surprisingly common coping mechanism. It doesn’t have to be extravagant; just a simple reminder that you are special, so put that time and energy into picking out something just for you. Go through our gift guides for her and for him and find out the perfect present for yourself easily.

The sheer joy that buying a little something for yourself brings is relatively satisfying and rejuvenating. Just do the nice thing for yourself, whatever that looks like to you. It doesn’t need to be expensive or flashy. 

18. The Bookworm Mode

Reading books benefit both your mental and physical health, and those benefits can last a lifetime. So burying your head in a good story can transport you to a place you’ve never been. Live through the experience of reading. Let your imagination run wild with each turn of a new page. Reading is a great way to de-stress and has the day breeze by.

19. Good Turn

Love increases when it is shared. There are many ways to spread love. You can volunteer in your community, help in a soup kitchen, or take flowers to a nursing home. 

It is said that an act of kindness goes a long way. No matter how big or small, it can make a difference. It can directly benefit your mental health and make you happier. 

20. Be Snug As A Bug In A Rug

Embrace laziness; doing nothing allows space for your subconscious to expand. So this valentine’s day, sit back and laze around at home doing nothing for a change. Catch up on your sleep or just enjoy some quiet time. A brilliant way to recharge from your everyday life.

Concluding Thoughts

Valentine’s day is all about celebrating love. It can be love for a romantic partner, friends, family members, children or your own self. So what are you waiting for, hurry up and plan your date with yourself!
