Valentine's Day: Single Edition
Valentine's Day is notoriously a sad day for the singles, but not this year! You can have a super fun Valentine's Day even if you don't have a valentine. Also, I need to point out that "Valentine" does not necessarily have to be a love interest, it can be friends, family, or any other loved one. This year, Valentine's day is going to be the best Valentines day ever! You can make the most of your Valentines day from anywhere! Here are a few things you can do as a single on Valentines day!
A Galentines Day picnic is a super good way to celebrate Valentines day with your friends. It's also a great opportunity for a socially distanced hang out with your friends. Each person in your friend group can bring a snack, or their own food, you can meet up at a park or the beach, and all dress super cute to take some Instagram pictures! You can bake some Valentines day treats for all of your friends! If you want some snack ideas, go check out my post about the Best Healthy Snacks from Trader Joe's.
Watch a Rom-Com
Ok some people may feel like watching a romantic movie will make them feel even more single on Valentine's day; but if you watch a Rom-Com, then you get the best of both worlds because you are watching a romantic movie with some comedy. You can even make it a movie night with some popcorn and your favorite Valentines day treat! You could even take it so far as to Netflix party with your friends! Below are a few of my favorite rom-coms that are perfect for Valentine's day. Click on the movie you like for the trailer!
