Valentine’s Day Ideas For One
The month of February is all about love, love, love! Whether it’s being bombarded by bouquets of roses, boxes of chocolates, paper cut-out hearts, or simply the dreamy-eyed faces of couples whispering sweet nothings to each other, Valentine’s Day makes itself known as soon as January 31st comes to a close.
Valentine’s Day can sometimes suck if you’re single, but it doesn’t t have to! Just because you don’t have a dinner date or the other half of a couple’s massage doesn’t mean you can’t feel the love on Valentine’s Day. Here are 6 ways for you to show some love to the most important person of all – yourself.
1. Try a chocolate taste test.
Valentine’s Day is all about chocolates, right? Gift yourself a box – or four! Make sure they’re all different flavors so you can really make the most of it, and invite some single friends over so you can experience a sugar high together!
Play Cupid with some treats away some homemade cupcakes at the office! Or, test your baking skills with a layered cake! Choose something a little more advanced so you can be extra proud of yourself when you pull it out of the oven.
3. Have a social media break.
Valentine’s Day is not the time to have a pity party while stalking your ex on Facebook. Your feed is going to be full of happy couples posting their highlight reels too. Do yourself a favor and stay offline. Enjoy your own company in the real world.
If you have nephews, nieces, be that cool aunt for an evening! Give those hardworking parents a night off by offering to babysit! Unleash your inner child with a pizza, popcorn, arts and crafts, and a Disney movie marathon.
5. Have a self-care evening.
When was the last time you indulged in a bubble bath? Valentine’s Day is the perfect opportunity to catch up on your self-care. Get that new bath bomb, light your favorite Embla Home candles, and prepare your favorite Spotify playlist! Enjoy a quiet evening melting your worries away.

6. Enjoy a girl’s night out.
Just because you don’t have a date on Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you can’t go out on the town! Slip on your favorite cocktail dress and take yourself out! Get dolled up for yourself and enjoy the sights and sounds with a couple of your favorite gal pals.
Some people may see Valentine’s Day as overly commercial and totally unnecessary. We at Embla Home see it as yet another reason to exercise some much needed self-love! Do something that makes you feel loved – this Valentine’s Day, sure, but all days to come.
