Spending Valentines Day Alone Isn't A Bad Thing

Valentine's Day is the next big holiday and if you find yourself all alone don't worry about it. There has been a ridiculous amount of pressure for people to be with someone on Valentine's Day and this just isn't the case anymore. Now we can take this day of love to show appreciation to family members and do some very important self-care. If you are looking to find some unique ideas to treat friends and family this year take a look at these friendly date options.

Lunch And A Movie
Taking a loved one out for a nice meal and a funny movie is always appreciated. Maybe you have a divorced grandma or widowed aunt that would appreciate being together with you on this day of love. Your kids also appreciate going out to a nice lunch and movie, the togetherness is perfect for Valentine's Day.

Deliver Them Flowers
It can cost a fortune to send flowers to each family member if you get a service to do it for you. Head into your local grocery store and pick up a few cheap bouquets of flowers and separate them into smaller bunches so you can deliver more. You can even pop by the dollar store and pick up a fancy vase and a small treat or candle. Not only will you save money delivering the flowers yourself but you can include a nice hug and sparkling conversation.

A Simple Text, Message, Or Photo
Social media makes it easy to stay in touch with your loved ones the sad thing is we really don't use it to our full potential. How many of us have family members on our Facebook friends lists that we haven't even spoken to in months. A simple message with a photo of you together posted to their page shows them you were thinking of them and makes them feel loved. This costs nothing and can make a huge difference to someone who could be feeling really alone and sad.

If you are looking at taking a more self-care approach there are a number of different things you can do for yourself that will improve your mental health, happiness, and well being.

Facials and Masks
You can pick up a number of different face masks and facial cleansing creams and lotions to improve the look and feel of your skin and help you relax. There are lots of them sold in dollar stores if you are low on funds or you can buy the pricier charcoal peel masks that are lots of fun to rip off.

Buy A New Toy
Taking the time to explore your body and make yourself happy is something that people have become extremely uncomfortable talking about. It is a natural part of life, relieves stress, makes you feel good, and relaxes you. If you are a man who is alone there is some amazing technology out there that feels great and creates less of a mess than traditional methods. Take a look at the F1s Developers Kit for the latest man's toy! For the ladies, there are literally a hundred options available and each one has its own perks. Women need more than just something to ride on and stimuli will help you get to that cloud 9 over and over again. Using something as amazing as Soraya 2 will make being alone your new favourite time.

Get A Massage 
Getting a massage can help you to loosen all your tense muscles and feel more relaxed and human again. If getting a massage isn't affordable to you you can always buy some self-massaging tools from a number of different stores. You can also ask a friend or family member to exchange massages, there are a number of how-to videos on youtube that will teach you to do it like the pros.


Teeth Cleaning
Going to the dentist doesn't have to be done just to solve a problem. Book a cleaning to make your mouth feel fresh and your mouth a little more healthy. You can even go as far as getting your teeth whitened either at the dentist or at home to save even more money. There are a number of great kits available for every budget.


Self-care doesn't have to be expensive it can be as simple as relaxing in your pyjamas and watching your favourite show, reading a book, taking a long bath, or going out for a nice meal on your own while listening to your favourite music.
