10 Ways To Treat Yourself This Valentine’s Day
Celebrating Valentine’s Day single or with your girlfriends this year? Maybe you’re coupled up and ready for a day of pampering and treating yourself (you deserve it!) No matter what Hallmark tells us, Valentine’s day is all about the celebration of love – whether you’re celebrating your better half, your closest friends, or yourself (self-love is just as important). Some of the best gifts are those that we give ourselves, so we’ve compiled a list of 10 ways to treat yourself this Valentine’s Day.
1. Relax with a therapeutic massage.
Melt the stress away with a solo or couples massage this Valentine’s Day. We love that many massage places also incorporate aromatherapy options into their services.
2. Reserve a table at a favorite restaurant and celebrate with your best girl friends.
Make new memories at an old favorite place. Tonight’s the perfect night to indulge in the appetizers, dessert, and the extra glass of wine!
3. Pamper yourself with a facial or mani/pedi.
Better yet, clear your schedule and set aside a full day for pampering (or at least a few hours!) Sometimes all you need is a blissful day of relaxation to feel refreshed and renewed.

4. Treat yourself to a gorgeous new lingerie set.
Is there anything better than a beautiful lingerie set to spice up Valentine’s night or brighten a dreary morning? We can’t think of anything.
5. Celebrate with a boudoir photo shoot.
Boudoir photo shoots are celebrations of you – your beauty, your personality, your confidence. You don’t need to be in a relationship in order to do one.
6. Schedule some ‘me time’.
Getting ready for a night out or cozy night in? Start the pampering early. Take a long, relaxing bath, light a favorite candle, and pour yourself a glass of a ‘saving for a special occasion’ wine.
7. Buy a beautiful bouquet of flowers.
Opt for hydrangea, peonies, tulips, and two tone roses. Flowers will make your home smell amazing and can cost almost nothing!
8. Marathon your favorite TV shows.
Spending Valentine’s Day single? Take advantage of the alone time by watching your favorite films and TV shows with no interruptions!
9. Pamper yourself for pennies with DIY skincare made from the freshest ingredients.
Is saving money one of your New Year’s resolutions? We love an indulgent at-home spa day. Some of the best skincare products are made of common ingredients hiding in the kitchen. We can’t wait to try the natural skincare recipes on this list from This Original Organic Life!
10. Plan a day of indulgent activities.
See one of the movies on your must-watch list during the day (less crowded theaters and less expensive tickets), get lost in an intoxicating book, head to the beach or park to soak up some sunshine, relax at home with a favorite movie…the options are endless.
