The Valentines Day Post

With Valentines day well and truly in the lurch (less than 6 days), I thought a post surrounding the subject would be fitting. Whether you're in a relationship or single, Valentines Day can be celebrated in many different shapes and forms. So I have attempted to cover all grounds, with ideas of gifts and things to do if you're loved up or flying solo this February 14th. 

Things to do if you're in a relationship:

Try Something New
Try doing something you and your partner have never done before, a comedy show, a cooking class the possibilities are endless and doing something out of the ordinary will ensure it to be a Valentines you won't forget. 

'The Classic'
You could just go for the classic cinema date or dinner and drinks. You might not get to spend a lot of time with your other half normally so getting dolled up and going to see a film or making reservations for your favourite restaurant can still be a treat. 

Stay In  
You don't have to go out and spend a fortune every year with your boyfriend or girlfriend. Why don't you stay in and cook dinner together in your pjs, or order in food, make a den and watch whatever you want. Going out to wine and dine doesn't have to be your only option. More than likely I will be opting for this this year. 

Things to do if you're single: 

A Sleepover
Invite you're friends around and have a sleepover together, buy enough chocolate to last you a year and download your favourite film. There's no need to spend the day miserable!

Go Out 
Go out to your favourite restaurant with your other single friends and go for drinks afterwards. There's no reason why you shouldn't get dolled up either! 

Treat yourself
Go and get your hair or nails done, book yourself in for that massage you've been wanting to get for ages. There is no better time to pamper yourself, make a day of it and do it with your friends or family or go alone, either way you will come out feeling amazing. 

What to buy if you're in a relationship:

Make Something 
Again, there is no need to spend hundreds on a present for your significant other. Make something for them, this will probably work out terribly but that's the fun of it. If they like tea, make them a personalized mug, Instead of buying a generic card that says how much you love them on it make it, it can be as romantic or non romantic as you want!

If your boyfriend or girlfriend is anything like me this would be ridiculously appreciated. Buy them a load of their favourite chocolates, bake them their favourite cake or surprise them with a dominos pizza.. cheap and cheerful! 

Listen to Their Hints
If they have been dropping hints about something they need or would like to have.. go for it! It could be something simple such as needing new earphones or a new game or lush bath bomb they were excited about. Listen to the small hints they drop and act on it, the effort will be appreciated! 

What to buy if you're single:

You don't have to be in a relationship to buy pretty underwear. Even if no one sees it, you will still feel good about yourself. You could go all out and buy a set from Victoria secret or just pop into Penny's or Primark and pick up something for under 15 euro!

Make up
That new naked palette you've had your eye on for months, buy it! There is no better time than now to treat yourself and if you don't have a boyfriend or girlfriend to do it for you, then it's only right that you do it!

Perfume is something I rarely buy for myself but like I said above if you don't have anyone else to buy a bottle for you then why should you be deprived, spend some of your hard earned money on making you feel good about yourself! 

What are your plans for this Sunday?
