Valentine’s Day is usually seen as a holiday for couples to celebrate each other, but what about single people? If you don’t have a significant other this Valentine’s Day then here are some ideas to keep yourself occupied. 

Plan a date with your best friend.
Instead of being alone on Valentine’s Day, invite your best friend over and have a platonic date. You two can go to the movies, out to dinner, have a picnic or just stay in and watch movies together. If you’d rather do something creative together, Board and Brush offers many painting classes that are fun for almost every age.

Buy yourself something.
Whether it’s a splurge or something simple, spoiling yourself on Valentine’s Day can be a good way to pamper yourself. You can buy yourself something you’ve been wanting for a long time, some flowers, food or anything you’d like to make yourself happy. Kroger carries a lot of affordable flowers and food that you can check out.

Have an ultimate movie marathon.
Binge-watching movies with your favorite snacks is a great way to entertain yourself during the holiday. You can watch them with family, friends or anyone else you’d like. You can also buy yourself snacks and candy to eat while watching. “Lord of The Rings,” “Harry Potter” and “Fast and Furious” are all good movie series to binge-watch.

Spa day.
Pampering yourself during Valentine’s Day can be a good way to boost your confidence and your physical health. Going to get your nails done, getting a massage, getting a haircut or more can allow you to destress and stay peaceful. Many places like Massage Envy and Avante Salon and Day Spa have many different services you can choose from. 

Bake something for you/your friends.
Baking something like cookies, brownies, cakes, cupcakes or muffins can be a fun and delicious way to keep yourself occupied during the day. Baking Valentine’s Day-based treats can make the holiday more enjoyable for singles. Simple recipes can be found on many websites like Delish and Food Network.

Learn a new skill or hobby.
Crocheting, painting, scrapbooking and origami can all be easy hobbies to pick up during Valentine’s Day. Keeping yourself busy with simple, intricate activities can help reduce stress and increase your creativity. Most of these activities are available to find on the internet or YouTube if you’re looking for visual instructions.

Plan a “Palentines” dinner.
During Valentine’s Day, you can do something called a “Palentines dinner” which is where you invite your friends over and host a dinner party. Typically they’re Valentine’s Day themed but they don’t have to be themed to have fun. Many ideas on what to do during your Palentines dinner can be found online on Adventure Girl.

Have a game night.
If you have a deck of cards sitting around collecting dust, bring them out during Valentine’s Day and host a game night with your family/friends. Invite your friends or family over and bring out some board games to have a fun game night. Most board games are cheap and can be found at drugstores or more popular stores like Walmart or Target.
