Valentine's Day, on February the 14th, is typically thought of as a special day of love and a celebration of romance. Apart from giving and receiving gifts, it's also a perfect day to nourish, appreciate and celebrate all the important relationships in your life.
But what if you don't have a significant other? Or maybe you're not a hopeless romantic? Maybe you want to do stand in protest against a traditional Valentine's Day celebration and do something different this year?
No problem... We hear you! In this blog post, we will discuss and share some fun ideas on what to do for Valentine's Day this year. You'll even find some great date ideas that won't cost a fortune!
Reach out to somone you haven’t talked to in a while.
Valentines Day is not only for couples and lovers. It’s also the perfect day and a great excuse to reach out to those friends you haven’t seen since you graduated university. Or, that family member or person who you only see once or twice a year.
Make Valentine's Day a day of friendship. Give Valentine's Day card to all your friends, family and loved ones. Valentine's Day is not just about romantic love.
Do What Makes You Happy!
Maybe your biggest passion and love in life at the moment is knitting, crafting, organising or TikTok videos? Do it! Valentine’s Day is the perfect day for you to do the things that actually make you happy.
There are plenty of opportunities when it comes to celebrating Valentine's Day. The most important thing is to do what makes you happy.
Whether that means spending time with your loved ones, doing something special for yourself or simply relaxing and enjoying the day, Valentine's Day is a day to be enjoyed by all!
Be your own Valentine date!
Even if you are single or if you can’t celebrate Valentine's Day with your partner, you can still have a fun day and romantic night!
Buy a bouquet of Valentine's Day roses for yourself! Go for a long walk in the park, take yourself out for a romantic dinner to one of your favourite restaurants, or order a take-away. There's no rules here!
If you decide to just chill at home, throw on some comfy sleepwear, bring the duvet to the sofa and watch your favourite film for the 100th time. Why not treat yourself to a new pair of super comfy Mens Pyjamas / Sleepwear for men? We've got you covered!
Psst... Sleepwear for Men from Drift Sleepwear is also the perfect gift for someone on Valentines Day! Sign up to our newsletter and get 15% off your first order!
Valentine's Day on a Budget
Valentine’s Day isn’t about spending money, because just like The Beatles sang, "Money can't buy me love".
Buying gifts is hard as it is. Instead, spice up the things you do on a daily basis. Have breakfast in bed, treat yourself to a day without chores or treat your other half to a home-spa-day!
If you're looking for some free (or low cost) Valentine's Day gifts, why not consider these ideas:
- Make a romantic and fun homemade gift.
- Make your own Valentine's Day card or write a love letter to that special someone in your life.
- Cook and serve a surprise home-made romantic dinner in the evening for your loved one(s).
- No need to spend money on expensive holidays. Why not visit an attraction or go on a hike in your local area. Discovering places in your local area you have never seen or been to before is the perfect date idea!
- Psst. If you're out of ideas then flowers, a box of chocolate, a nice bottle of wine or some new organic sleepwear for men can never go wrong!
Your Pet is Your Valentine All Year Around!
Is your cat your best friend? Or is your dog that special someone in your life? There's certainly no judgement here. Spoil them like you would anyone else!
Pets make the perfect Valentine's Day date! They are always there for you, they love you unconditionally and they never complain about your terrible cooking or that you didn't get them any flowers.
So, why not celebrate the day with your furry friend. Spend the day playing together, going for a long walk in nature, get them some special treats, a new toy or simply cuddling on the sofa. They'll love it and you get to spend Valentine's Day with someone special.
