Valentine’s Day is the perfect time to make someone around you feel special. For some, it is their significant others and for single people the options are endless. It could be your coworker, your best friend or your parent. Whoever you choose to appreciate, here are some great tips on what to do this February 14th.
Secret Santa with other single friends
Being single on Valentine’s day does not mean that you don’t have to get presents. Gather your other single friends and get each other meaningful gifts anonymously. This is a great way to make sure everyone around you feels special that day.
Make your girlfriends your Valentines. Organise a day of pampering, cocktails and maybe even a sleepover. Take the time to appreciate each other’s company and stuff yourselves silly with all your favourite treats. You could even get together and make our February recipe from our Recipe Calendar.

Grab a friend and take advantage of couple deals
Valentine’s Day comes with a mountain of deals all over usually for two. This doesn’t mean they are for couples alone. Grab your foodie friend and take advantage of couples deals at all your favourite restaurants and spas.
Travel with friends or solo
Valentine’s deals usually include travel deals as well. Go out of town for a night or two and sample something new in a town you have never been to. If you can’t leave town then a staycation within the city can be just as fun and special. Find great travel spots in Nomad Magazine.
Spend the week celebrating Random Acts of Kindness week
The week including Valentine’s Day is Random Acts of Kindness week. Take the time to do something special for someone around you whether you know them or not. Bake your neighbour some pastries or volunteer at your nearest homeless shelter. Whatever you decide to do, you’ll be guaranteed to make someone around you feel special.
