Ahh, Valentine’s Day. It’s a time for love — and, of course, listening to corny R’N’B songs and eating lots of chocolate! And if you ask us, love can come in many forms, whether it’s for your partner, your bestie, your dog or even just yourself! So, whether you’re riding solo or coupled up this Valentine’s Day, here’s how to spend it in style.
If you’re single
For all our independent ladies, we’d like to borrow a quote from the ultimate girl power icon, Samantha from Sex and The City: "I love you... but I love me more. I've been in a relationship with myself for years and that's the one I need to work on.” And we say, the best way to show yourself a little self-love is by having a DIY spa day. Whether you invite your single gal pals over or go it solo, it’s the perfect way to unwind and treat yourself like a Queen!
There are a few essentials you’re going to need on hand for your pampering day. The first is a relaxing bath soak. Our La Vie En Rose Bath Soak combines soothing ingredients like epsom salt, Himalayan pink rock salt and rose petals for a super luxurious bath experience. We guarantee it’ll be love at first soak! You’re also going to need a gorgeous natural face mask. Our Smooth & Glow Exfoliator doubles as a mask and will leave you with your softest, brightest and most radiant skin EVER. Good luck staying single after a few uses of this bad boy! You can get your hands on the rest of the essentials you’ll need with our Luxe Spa Bundle.
Ever been on a date where you’ve sat in silence at the movies or struggled to hear each other at a loud bar? Yep, new relationships are kinda awkward, especially when it comes to Valentine’s Day. A million thoughts run through your mind. “Do I get them a present? Will they get me one? Is it weird if we go out to dinner on V Day if we’re not officially ‘together”?
If you are planning on spending the day with your new beau, a great idea to take the pressure off is doing something active. Think, going kayaking or tackling an obstacle course together. If you’re not an outdoorsy person, going to an escape room or the beach are great ideas, too. Not only are these activities affordable, they’ll actually allow you to bond and get to know each other better!
Long term relationship
Whether you’re married or have just been together forever, chances are you’ve had your fair share of dinner and movie dates throughout the years. So, one of the best things you can do to keep the romance alive this Valentine’s Day is go back to basics.
This year, why not try a digital detox and focus on each other?
Turn off your phone, get rid of any distractions and simply enjoy each other’s company. Without your head buried in your phone or laptops, spend a quality time together. You’ll be reminded of what made you fall in love with your partner in the first place — whether it was his cheeky smile, kind eyes or sexy accent (and if it was all three then you’re one lucky Belle!) That said, just because you’re doing a digital detox, doesn’t mean you have to just stare into each other’s eyes all day.
There are plenty of fun and romantic activities you can do on Valentine’s Day, like going on a picnic or snuggling up under the stars at an outdoor cinema. Or, you could always have a romantic night in. Give him a hint. We've put everything you need in our Limited Edition gift boxes, add 2 glasses of wine and you're sorted! Let us take care of the gift so you can enjoy the day!
