Valentine’s Day will soon be here and it is traditionally a time of blissful romance and celebration of new love or lasting love.  But for others, it is a day that we wish would be behind us so we don’t have to wallow in the lack of a romantic relationship.
The classic venue of flowers, chocolates, and dinner is a nice reminder to take time to honor the one you love but it doesn’t mean the rest of us need to be left out if we aren’t at the receiving end of such gifts.  You traditionalists go do your thing but for the rest of us, we can make Valentine’s Day a wonderful day of love that doesn’t require a romantic relationship- just good gal pals.

So, how can we take advantage of V-Day without stressing out?  Here are some great ways to enjoy the day:
Shed some love on yourself!
– Treat Yo’self ! We have socks that say TREAT YO’SELF so buy the socks and buy some ice cream! You deserve it!
-Do something you love.  Perhaps get a massage for being a good person. After all, you need to love yourself before you can love others.
– Do something out of the ordinary that you would not normally do but have always wanted to. Perhaps it’s as simple as ordering take out from a restaurant you’ve never been to. Go on a road trip to an antique mall or a small town you have wanted to explore.
– Write down what you are grateful for. It can be a person, a place, a moment. Just write!
– Call someone who lives out of town just to reconnect.  Let them know you are thinking about them.
– Wear some fuzzy socks, curl up with a good book, and a favorite snack. Heaven.
– Get a good bottle of wine and wear our LOVE THE WINE YOU’RE WITH socks. They are perfect!
– Don’t forget–you are not drinking alone if you are with a furry friend.
Spread the love!
– Host a Gal-entine’s Day party!  Invite your BFFs over to drink some wine and watch some NETFLIX or play some fun games.  Don’t be alone as this is the day to celebrate the friends you love!
– Shed some love on your dogs or your cats. They are the ones that greet us every night after work, cuddle with us when we need attention and love us unconditionally. Take them to the park or for an extra- long walk.  You will both love it.
– Invite a neighbor over for a glass of wine or take some cookies to your favorite neighbor just to let them know you appreciate them.
– Make cookies for a local retirement center. There are many lonely people that reside there and would appreciate the kind token of recognition.
– Take chocolate to work.  Your co-workers will love you!
