It’s Valentine’s Day! Which means tomorrow is discount chocolate day, let’s not forget that important date. Listen, Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples. Here are some light-hearted, fun, and tasty things to do for singles, kids, and parents celebrating this Valentine’s Day.
#1 – Single? Host a Galentine’s Day Party or a Palentine’s Day Party!
What’s Galentine’s Day? Think everything you’d do with your guy, minus the guy and the possible sex stuff. Oftentimes, ladies hold their Galentine’s Day parties over breakfast or brunch. Live it up with your girls. By the way, you can invite your coupled friends to such a gathering if you’d like, sans boyfriends and husbands. Now that that’s clear, you can probably guess Palentine’s Day would be the inverse – guys with their guys, doing guy things.
#2 – The Only Single Friend? Love Yourself!
Commercially, Valentine’s Day seems to be all about spreading love and kindness to other people. However, before you love anyone else, be sure to love yourself first. We’re talking Netflix and popcorn. Catch up on those shows or read a book.
#3 – Parents With Children? Tackle Some of These Super Cool Valentine’s Day Science Ideas With Your Kids!
Get ready for some fun, excitement, learning, and bonding time. And-possibly-some-messes-but-we-said-that-so-fast-you-didn’t-hear-it.
