Valentine’s day is right around the corner! While some couples are basking in the glory of love, their single counterparts are left wondering what to do. If you’re one of those who treat it as any other day and want to avoid the ‘cliched’ celebration then ride on! However, if you’re one of those who love celebrating the day and are left to your own devices, we’ve got ideas for you! Single but up for a good time nonetheless? Don’t hate on couples, forget cupid and indulge in these solo pursuits!
Here are 5 cool ideas for the cool single girl celebrating Valentine’s day!
1. Indulge yourself
Before you love someone else, you need to love yourself. When you take care of and love yourself, you can share love easily. This Valentine’s day indulge yourself with whatever you’ve wanted to do but restrained yourself from. Chomping on cheat day, shopping no bar and a total hold-back from stopping yourself. Just make yourself happy! Try food hopping to all those places you’ve wanted to try but haven’t gotten around to doing. Get comfortable and go on an adventure by yourself. There’s nothing more liberating than being happy with your own company! How about a night cycling trip in Mumbai? A ladies book club meet or perhaps a storytellers event in Bangalore for the daydreamer? Or attend a poetry open mic gig at Delhi! The choices are endless and so is the satisfaction.
2. Spread The Love
Valentine’s day is not just for couples! It’s a day that celebrates love and rightly so. Share the happiness and love by doing good things for others! Create handmade Valentine coupons that offer your loved one a cool experience or exemption from ghastly ones! At first glance they may seem overly romantic but they work just as easy as a gift for your parents, siblings or friends! DIY it with loads of glitter to inject some fancy fabulousness!
3. Throw a Galentine’s Day Party
Round up your single gals and throw a party! So what if you’re riding solo? The love is aplenty amongst your BFFs to last a lifetime! However, we don’t mean couple bashing. Simply netflix and chill (we mean literal and chill) and enjoy each others company. Build a blanket fort, watch How To Be Single for good measure, have a dance party and dig into dessert, lots of it! As the fabulous ladies from Sex And The City once put it, “Maybe our girlfriends are our soulmates and guys are just people to have fun with!” After all, every Carrie needs her Samantha.
4. Give Love to Those in Need
Nothing, and we mean nothing comes close to the fulfilling feeling of helping someone in need. While Valentine’s Day might be all about celebrating love, don’t forget those who are in dire need of it. Volunteer at a local puppy shelter, an orphanage or senior citizen home. Decorate their home, help out with activities or just spend time with them. The love and happiness you’ll receive will be incomparable!
5. Make Someones Day
We know there is no need for a special day to perform good deeds, but it’ll be particularly appreciated on a special day. Buy someone coffee for no reason, or leave an anonymous gift on your favourite colleagues desk, telling them how much you appreciate them. Wash your roommate’s dishes, give old clothes to a homeless person or simply give someone your parking spot (as difficult as that may be) There is nothing like putting a goofy big smile on someone’s face and knowing you’re the reason behind it. It really is the little things that counts! A not so random but equally satiating act of kindness!
So all our single ladies, all we’re saying is..
Come what may, we will always be here to spoyl you! Cross our heart and hope to die 💕
Happy Valentine’s Day!
