It’s almost that time a year again – you either hate it or you love it – Valentine’s Day. A day for love, but it shouldn’t be just for the ones that are already in a relationship. Everyone should celebrate this day, whether you’re showing love for your significant other, a friend or even yourself!
One of the best ways to show your love for someone is getting them a thoughtful gift. But, not only any thoughtful gift, maybe something you made from the heart! I’m talking about some DIY Valentine’s Day gifts. Some ideas for you include:
- A personalized wooden letter to represent the receivers name decorated in a fashion that represents them and what they like.
- A framed picture of you together that you decorate with different colored paints and glued-on accessories. Plus, every time they see this picture, they’ll think of you!
- A jar of their favorite candy with a note and added decoration to make it even more personalized.
Even a simple note letting them know how much you love and cherish them in your life can be something that not only expresses your feelings for a person, but also make them feel extra special this Valentine’s Day.
If you’re feeling a little adventurous, take a little getaway with your lover, friend or even yourself to embrace the day of loving someone or yourself! Go to a local bakery and enjoy a treat (or two!) or go to a beach, lake or pool to enjoy some of the nice weather that Valentine’s Day is hoped to bring in your area. If you’re more of an active person, take a hike on a nature trail or take a yoga class to find your inner peace and serenity. All these options can be done whether you’re in a relationship or not so get out there and feel the love!
Making a gift for someone or even getting out of the house can be a real struggle. If those options are not your forte, maybe staying in for the day of love is more your speed. If so, there are still ways to make the most of your Valentine’s Day. Having a movie night is always an option, get some popcorn, chips, and other favorite snacks to spice up the night! A nice at-home spa night can be a way for you to show some love for yourself and to celebrate this Valentine’s Day.
So whether you are in a relationship or not, there are still ways for you to enjoy the day that is filled with love. It’s always important to show love for yourself, and a lot of the times we forget to do so. We are all young and love will come our ways, even at the most unexpected times.
