Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and whether your view of this holiday is traditional or nontraditional, there are plenty of creative ways to make the day special, regardless of your relationship status.
Pick yourself up some bubble bath, a bottle of wine and a bouquet of fresh flowers. You can enjoy a relaxing evening at home alone or with your significant other. This is a simple way to do something thoughtful but not overstress about complex or expensive plans.
Another idea that feels special but cuts out needless time and planning: ordering takeout and dusting off your fanciest China. Set a beautiful table complete with cloth napkins, flowers in a collection of favorite vases, drippy candles and a jazzy playlist in the background. Enjoy the aura of an elevated dinner without the hassle of cooking or the attempt to scramble for last-minute dinner reservations.
Perhaps the most low-key way to celebrate would be to grab your favorite chocolate, throw on a classic black and white rom-com, and cozy up by the fire. No matter what you choose to do or how elaborate your plans are, you can delight in the simple pleasures of treating yourself to a relaxing night in or making a fun memory with someone you love!
