Who says flowers and chocolates are for couples only? Send gifts to your mom, girlfriends and any other single girls that you know! This will definitely put a smile their faces and what better way to spread love and joy to all the independent and strong women out there.

2. Paint the town red – with your girlfriends!

Gather up all the single ladies and dance the night away! Get yourself glammed up from head to toe, go to a fabulous dinner and have fun with your gal pals. Enjoy this day with your friends because who needs a man to have fun? But if you’re not keen on going out then.

3. Host a night in of fun with your girlfriends!

Put on your pyjamas, stock up on the junk food and do a sleepover with your friends! Order in tons of food and have a night in putting on face masks, doing each other’s nails and baking cookies. Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you should be lonely.

4. When it comes to movie marathons, ditch the rom-coms!

Scrap the rom-coms. If you’re spending Valentine’s Day at home or with your single ladies, focus on films that celebrate female independence, friendship, success, and empowerment instead. Our suggestions for an awesome movie marathon: Thelma & Louise, Legally Blonde and The Help!

5. Treat yo’ self

Whether it’s a fancy dinner, a box of chocolates or even a shopping spree, it’s always important to make yourself a priority. You don’t need someone in your life to feel special. Take the time to remind yourself that you are a beautiful person with a lot to offer; not just as a romantic partner.

6. Remember, it’s only once a year!

Don’t make yourself feel bad about something that happens once in 365 days a year. Learn to your love your life – single or not! 

Having read this guide, go forth and celebrate Valentine’s Day in a way that will make you happy!
