Being solo this Valentine’s Day doesn’t mean you have to spend the day bored and resenting the fact that you’re alone. This is a great excuse for you to plan an entire day dedicated to you.
If you’re struggling to figure out what to do by yourself this holiday we’ve created this fancy little guide to Valentine’s Day for singles. There’s no reason you shouldn’t have a little fun this year!
Have Yourself a Relaxing Bath
Does having a relaxing bath not sound like one of the best ways for you to spend Valentine’s Day solo?
Get yourself some romantic, calming essential oils to add to the bathwater—lavender, sandalwood, ylang ylang. Feel free to add some candles to set the mood (yes, you can set up a romantic evening for yourself). Then put on your favourite podcast or music playlist.
If you’re really feeling celebratory, why not add a box of chocolates and a glass of wine?
For some real fun, the Basics Rocket Bullet Vibe is not only travel-ready (hello, next trip to Mexico) but it’s waterproof. That’s right, you can take this bad boy in the tub with you during your relaxing Valentine’s Day bath.
Step Up Your Bath Game with a Full-on Spa Day
If a bath is simply not enough relaxation for you then perhaps a full-on spa day is in order. Why not celebrate single life (or simply some alone-time) with a series of activities solely dedicated to your wellness and beauty.
Beyond taking a long soak in a bubble-bath filled tub, some at-home spa day activities could include:
- Put on a rejuvenating face mask
- Do your nails
- Give yourself a hand massage
- Soak your feet in bath salts
When it comes to an at-home spa day, your goal is to do whatever helps you feel relaxed, rejuvenated and pampered. It’s your day!
If your spa day requires something waterproof with a little more girth than a basic bullet vibe, check out the Chubby Fun Vibe. Also intense, also waterproof. What more do you want?
Conduct Your Own Boudoir Photo Shoot
Boudoir photo shoots have seen a bit of a resurgence over the past few years and perhaps this Valentine’s Day is the perfect time for you to make one of your own. You can do a photoshoot by yourself—all you need is a camera or smartphone. If you happen to have a ring light available, it’ll help you get the lighting just right. However, you certainly don’t need one.
Don’t forget to plan the perfect boudoir wardrobe!
For a casual vibe, we recommend the Bella Sleepshirt (seriously, it’s our favourite). But if you’re looking for something a little sexier, true a super cute lace and ribbon babydoll. If these particular pieces aren’t your boudoir wardrobe dream, we’ve got a whole host of sexy lingerie on sale you should check out.
Throw Yourself a Solo Rom-Com Party
There is absolutely nothing wrong with cuddling on the couch solo and throwing on your favourite rom-com. Who doesn’t love a re-run of 50 First Dates or perhaps you want to check out a new sexy show like Bridgerton—whatever kind of romance you like.
You can watch something solo (isn’t that really the way to do it) or you can hangout virtually with a significant other or bestie with an app like Teleparty that connects your streaming services so you can watch together in real time. We won’t tell anyone if your trusty G-Motion Rabbit Wand joins you for the show.
Take a Last-Minute Trip (Safely)
While you have to make sure that you follow local COVID regulations, this could be the perfect excuse to book yourself a quick little solo getaway. This could be a relaxing overnight at a mountain house or close to the beach, depending on where you’re located.
Don’t forget to bring a travel-friendly stimulator like the Satisfyer Curvy 2 along with you. This cute little guy has powerful vibrating and sucking functions, but it’s tiny enough to throw in a purse or pack in a suitcase.
Have Some Sexy Me-Time
We admit that all of our tips have involved a little sexy me-time but if you’re looking to go for it, no pretense, then feel free. Valentine’s Day is the perfect occasion, self pleasure is self care!There are a ton of exceptional sex toys on the market for solo sex sessions, but the Womanizer Liberty Clitoral Stimulator really does take the cake. It’s travel-ready, impossibly discreet and loved by women around the world (seriously, they call this bad boy ground-breaking). It’s a great choice if you’re looking to get yourself a gift.
