the season of love is here! like most activities this past year, we have to adapt and make the best of our situation and you might be floundering with what the heck to do to make the day feel special for yourself and for the people you love. note, showing someone that you care and appreciate them should be a daily task but in light of this commercial holiday, fortunately, it doesn’t have to take much to mean much. we got you covered on some activities that you can do with your boo (or friends, we just wanted it to rhyme):
this is a classic move but it works every time. make their favorite meal, or order take-out (tons of businesses are having v-day meal specials) and turn your living room into a cozy dinner theater. If you want to go the traditional route, that’s easy too!: movie theatre candy is easy to find at the dollar store, grab some popcorn, to add a little spice head on over to canva, and make a quick movie ticket. make the room cozy and hit play!
discover a new movie together or watch a classic, here are some of our suggestions:
netflix: Hitch, Silver Linings Playbook, Love & Basketball
hulu: Always Be My Maybe, If Beale Street Could Talk

DIY spa night:
now, who wouldn’t love a little love and relaxation? head over to tj maxx, walmart, or target to get a few of these items to turn your entire house into a luxury spa: bubble bath, body scrub, body, and massage oil, face masks and rollers, robe, a foot tub, a bottle of some funky polish, tons of candles the list goes on. Whether it’s with bae or your bestie your spa is not to disappoint.
you have a shopping list, here’s what to do once you get everything: massages, facials, pedicures, manicures
oh, don’t forget to pop the bubbly!

game suggestions: have a scavenger hunt, twister, uno, checkers, chess, guess who, scrabble
make vision boards:
