Valentine’s Day is a time to celebrate love and the people who make us happy. That’s why it can be a good idea to treat yourself this holiday. You’ve been putting in some hard work, so don’t let that stop now! Here are some things you can do for yourself on Valentine’s Day:
Take a long bubble bath.
You can make your bubble bath extra special by using products that are made for this purpose. There are so many options available, from candles to lotions and oils. If you want to go with a traditional approach, try adding some flowers and scented candles or lighting up the room with a few tea lights.
Once you’ve got everything set up, turn on some relaxing music and get in! Once you’re relaxed, give yourself a nice massage with some of those lotions/oils/butters (or whatever else floats your boat), then wash off all of the bubbles when you’re ready to get out!
Buy yourself flowers.
Flowers are a great gift for Valentine’s Day, and if you buy them yourself, you can get the best deal. There are many different types of flowers that suit every person and occasion. You can opt for a classic bouquet or choose something more unique like a potted plant or even something edible!
Flowers can be delivered or picked up at a flower shop near you, which makes it easy to plan out your day while still treating yourself with some beautiful flowers. When buying flowers online, make sure to check the return policy so that if they don’t arrive on time or are damaged in transit you will have time to replace them before Valentine’s Day arrives.
Flowers also make great gifts for friends and family members too! Why not send some sweethearts into their lives? And if someone special doesn’t share your love of flora (or maybe even hates plants), why not surprise them by sending yourself some beautiful blooms instead?
Have breakfast in bed.
- Have breakfast in bed.
Breakfast in bed is a classic. It’s also easy to do and will make you feel like a queen or king of your home, so it’s no wonder that many people choose this option for Valentine’s Day. If you’re going to cook something, have fun with it! Think outside the box: maybe try cooking eggs benedict for two? Or how about making pancakes shaped like hearts? For those who aren’t into cooking (or who want something more substantial than just eggs), there are plenty of restaurants that offer delivery options on Valentine’s Day—and even if they don’t, most restaurants will still be happy to accommodate requests from couples on special occasions such as this one. And even if you end up ordering in instead of making breakfast yourself, there’s no reason why you can’t put some effort into setting up your table; adding flowers and placing your plates on trays will give any meal an extra dose of romance!
If you’re feeling really generous (or really lazy), consider treating your partner(s) to breakfast-in-bed! The best part about this option is that once everyone has their food ready and waiting at home, all they have left to do is enjoy what they’ve worked so hard for!
Watch your favorite movie.
- Pick a movie that makes you happy.
- Make sure it’s a movie you haven’t seen before. If not, then watch something else!
- If your favorite movie happens to be on TV for Valentine’s Day, then consider watching it there instead of buying DVDs or Blu-rays of said film (I understand this is an expensive option).
Splurge on a pair of shoes.
- Get a pair of shoes that you’ve been wanting for a while.
- Get something stylish and comfortable.
- Make sure it fits well.
- Buy something that will last for a long time.
Buying those three things is easy, but the hard part is determining if the price tag is worth it! You’ll have to be honest with yourself about whether these shoes are worth the money or not.
Read that book you’ve been dying to read forever.
If you haven’t read that book yet, now is the time! You’ll be surprised at the impact it can have on your life—and maybe even yourself.
Valentine’s Day is a great day to treat yourself and do something nice for yourself. Read that book you’ve been dying to read forever, or one that has been on your to-read list for a long time. Being able to say “yes” instead of “no” will make this Valentine’s Day all the more special!
Get a massage.
Massages are a great way to treat yourself on Valentine’s Day, because they’re relaxing and good for your health.
- The importance of massage: Massages reduce stress, improve circulation and help you sleep better. They can also help people with asthma breathe easier by loosening the muscles around their lungs.
- How to get a massage: You can find massage therapists at spas or local health clubs, but if you don’t feel comfortable going somewhere new, ask for recommendations from friends or family members who have had massages before. Try calling several places in advance just in case there’s limited availability when you’d like your appointment set up!
- What to expect from your first visit: When you arrive at the spa (or wherever else), be sure to inform them that this is your first time getting a professional treatment so that they know what techniques would be best suited for someone who hasn’t experienced one before! You may even want suggest some specific techniques based on what feels good when doing self-massage at home (such as using tennis balls). Trust us—they’ll take good care of everyone involved 🙂
Sleep in without feeling the least bit guilty about it.
Sleep is a luxury that many of us don’t get enough of. If you’re not getting the recommended eight hours a night, it’s time to make some changes. Here are some tips for getting into a better sleeping routine:
- Avoid caffeine after 2 p.m., especially if you have trouble falling asleep at night
- Stick to regular bedtimes and wake-up times (even on weekends)
- Exercise regularly, but avoid doing so right before bedtime or else it will keep you awake
Bake your favorite dessert.
If you’re looking for a way to treat yourself this Valentine’s Day, consider baking. Baking is great because it’s relaxing and fun, but it also allows you to spend time with family or friends, meet new people and make new friends. Plus if you’re going through a tough time in your life and need something lighthearted to distract yourself from the stressors of everyday life, baking can help take your mind off things.
There are so many recipes out there that are easy enough for anyone to make! If you already have a favorite recipe then go ahead and use that one—or try a new one! If not, don’t worry—there are plenty of recipes online (and even some YouTube videos) that will walk you through exactly how-to make any type of dessert imaginable
Dress up casually and go out for drinks with some friends.
Valentine’s Day is a holiday for couples, but if you’re single, fear not! There are still ways to celebrate the day. Instead of spending your evening alone or at home with Netflix (though we’d be lying if we said that wasn’t an option), get out and enjoy yourself with some friends. Pick somewhere casual and go for drinks or dinner—the most important thing is to have fun! If you’re feeling extra brave, try dressing up more than usual. Nothing says “I’m celebrating” like an outfit that makes you feel confident and sexy. It’ll be nice to leave your apartment in something other than sweatpants after all this time spent hiding from human interaction during winter break.
You deserve to treat yourself on Valentine’s Day, whether you’re single or attached.
You deserve to treat yourself on Valentine’s Day, whether you’re single or attached. Whether or not you have someone by your side, the holiday is a great opportunity to show yourself some love and make sure that you get exactly what you want out of this one-day celebration.
You can do this by treating yourself right at home with a homemade meal, treating yourself to an unforgettable spa experience, or giving gifts to friends and family. There are endless ways to make it special for yourself—and there are just as many ways for others to be treated on this day!
There really isn’t any better way than doing something kind for someone else (or receiving it). It doesn’t have to be extravagant; anything goes: flowers from the grocery store, a homemade gift from your sister who loves baking cookies more than anyone else in the world…a simple card left on the kitchen table that says “I love being your mommy.”
Treat yourself on Valentine’s Day! If you’re single, it can be a great time to take care of yourself and spend time with friends. If you’re attached, remember that your partner is still a person who deserves to feel loved—even if he or she doesn’t show it in the same way or on the same day as everyone else. Do something special for them; they’ll appreciate it.
