Valentine's Day can be a bummer if you're single. But it doesn't have to be! Instead of celebrating romantic relationships, you can celebrate all your wonderful friendships! Here are some reasons to celebrate Valentine's Day with your friends rather than just spending it alone.
- Your BFFs accept you for who you are. There's no pressure to get dressed up or act a certain way.
- You can get crazy with your friends. Even sloppy drunk. And the crazier, the better.
- Your time together will be filled with laughter and fun. That comes with the BFF territory.
- You don't have to buy each other gifts. All you have to do is enjoy each other's company.
- Valentine's Day is easier to get through when you're hanging out with people you care about.
So here are 9 sassy ways to celebrate Valentine's Day with your BFFs:
1. Go wine tasting
Valentine's Day is the perfect excuse to go wine tasting with your best friends. Hop from winery to winery, tasting your favorite wines and snacking on gourmet cheeses. Plenty of cities offer all-day vineyard tours, and some private companies even supply designated drivers.
2. Hit up a day spa
Nothing says BFF bonding like hitting up a day spa. You and the girls can book group massages, lounge in the sauna, and get facials. You can finish off the day by treating yourselves to a fancy dinner. You'll finish Valentine's Day on a high note feeling relaxed and pampered.
3. Host a movie marathon
Want to celebrate a more low key Valentine's Day? Invite the girls over for a slumber party and watch movies while eating pizza in your pajamas. You can even apply face masks and paint each other's nails.
Grab some drinks with your BFFs and hit up a karaoke bar to celebrate your friendship. Sing all your favorite songs, and you won't have to worry about embarrassing yourself since you'll be with your BFFs.
5. Go dancing
Celebrate being single with your friends by hitting up some dance clubs. Dance the night away with BFFs, and enjoy each other's company. Going clubbing is all about embracing being single, and you'll never know
6. Hike some mountains
If you and your friends are more athletic and health conscious, then spend the day hiking together. Usually, there are lots of different places to hike outside of cities. But if you want to stay in your city, then give urban hiking a try.
7. Make arts and crafts
If you and your friends are more of a creative type, then getting together to knit or sew can be a blast. Invite them over to your house, and work on crafts while chit chatting and hanging out.
8. Organize a potluck
Want good food, but don't want to go to a restaurant or do all the cooking? Organize a potluck with some of your best friends, and have everyone bring a dish to share. You can coordinate dishes beforehand, too.
9. Go on a shopping spree
Celebrate Valentine's Day with your friends by splurging on new clothes and cosmetics. Hit up the mall together, and then go out for lunch. Have your friends help you pick out the perfect outfit.
