I’ve never made a big hub bub about Valentine’s Day, but I don’t see a reason to hate on it. I’d rather just embrace another day to show the people I love that I love them.
That being said, I don’t like to go out on Valentine’s Day, it’s just terrible. I don’t want the overpriced meals, the crowded restaurants, and just the overreaction to the day to have to rush out and do something with your significant other. I’m a homebody and have always preferred to celebrate Valentine’s Day at home or on a different day. If you’re like me, here are 14 ways to celebrate instead.
- Make some fun cocktails together
- Rent a movie and stop by the movie theater to buy a tub of popcorn (I’ve done this, it’s great and CHEAP!)
- Turn off the electronics and tackle a board game or puzzle
- Create a scavenger hunt that keeps you away from the busy V Day buzz
- Try out a meal subscription service and cook together (FYI they always have deals to get $$ off your first meal and then you can cancel after…I’ve done like 5 services like this)
- Do the thing you always say you’re going to do together whether it’s just going to a yoga class, booking a trip, or taking a nap.
- Host a game-night for couples, you get to stay in your house and have fun!
- Do Valentine’s Day on a different, less busy day.
- Better yet, do Valentine’s Day on a weekend and make a trip of it where you can be a homebody in a hotel room!
- Create a self-care day. You would be surprised how much guys who don’t often soak in a tub or take care of their nails actually enjoy when you take time to do these things with them.
