There is one day many single people loathe: Valentine’s Day. Don’t feel left out! It isn’t just for couples. Now is a perfect day to show yourself and the people you love how much you care about them. Here are some great ways to have a frugal Valentine's Day.
Frugal Valentine’s Day Ideas For Singles
Here are some suggestions for ways you can pamper yourself and others that won’t make you go for broke:
Take this day to really love yourself. Look for a local cosmetology school and make an appointment to get a manicure or pedicure or both! At these schools, you can usually do both for less than $20. You can also score a great deal on Groupon.
Start a hobby. Part of loving yourself is finding things that make you happy and help you unwind. Have you been putting off learning how to crochet, knit, scrapbook, or make jewelry? Find a local place offering a class on this and sign up! Joanne's Fabric usually offers classes like these or even Hobby Lobby.
Host a wine and cheese party with other single friends. Ask your friends to bring a bottle of wine and a favorite cheese. Provide crackers, fruit, and the place. Have a fun evening of conversation and good eats.
Look at today as a way to show love for mankind. Make it a point to volunteer at a favorite charity and show love for others who may be hurting or in desperate need of it. You will find that this will be extremely fulfilling and you may even forget about how left out your feelings on Valentine’s Day.
Love your body. Do something active and maybe even a bit daring. Challenge yourself to reach a fitness goal, try out a new fitness class you have been putting off, or try out a solitary sport you have always wanted to like snowboarding, skiing, or something else.
Find someone in your own life that may feel lonely or depressed. Make it your mission to boost them up by getting the things you would get a valentine such as flowers, candy, or a stuffed animal. It doesn’t have to be something expensive, but the fact that it comes from the heart will mean so much to someone who is hurting.
Spend some time with kids. Children have a way of making us feel like life is simple and enjoyable. They make us feel young again. I promise you that you have 1 or 2 friends who are looking for a babysitter. Offer to watch their kids while they go on a date and fully indulge in your little pals
