In case you didn’t know, Single’s Appreciation Day is on February 15th. For those of us who don’t have a boo to cuddle up to, Valentine’s Day can feel a little polarizing. So we decided to celebrate the sisters (and misters) doing it for themselves! Here are some great ideas to celebrate with your besties.
Hit the movies (and bring cake)
No matter what, there is always some romantic comedy playing around Valentine’s Day. Take your best single friends, hit up a happy hour and your favorite cupcake spot for an extra special treat, and go prepared to mock. While you might actually dig the movie, there’s nothing more fun than mocking a cheesy romcom when you’re a little drunk, and full of cake. (I, for one, will be seeing How To Be Single…cake in hand.)
While a Girl’s Night Out isn’t exactly reserved for Valentine’s Day (let’s be honest, it’s a weekly thing) whoopin’ it up with your best homegirls is a great reminder of WHY it’s so awesome to be single! Find a bar with your favorite activity (pinball, karaoke, dancing) and go wild.
Shop ’til you drop
Who says you need a S.O. to get gifts on VDay? Get thee to the mall and buy your OWN gift! You know what you like better than anyone else anyway.
Drink all the wine
Is there anything more fun than wine tasting? Gather up a group of buddies, find a D.D., and get your sip and slurp on! Learn the in’s and out’s of the wine industry and get a little tipsy to boot. If you really want to go all out, I’ve got two words for you: Party. Bus.
Netflix and chill
Sometimes, the best night is a good night with your pup, your Ben & Jerry’s, and your Netflix queue. I highly recommend Jane the Virgin if you’re not already watching it. It’s also prime time for a little home mani sesh…
