So, you’re single this Valentine’s. That doesn’t mean it has to be lonely or sad. You can choose to celebrate Galentine’s instead! And since we’re mostly stuck at home these days (as we should for everyone’s sake), we wanted to share some fun ideas you can do to have fun on the 14th.
Host a show/movie marathon
You can turn Valentine’s into family time. Get things ready for a show/movie marathon at home with your loved ones. Binge-watch your latest obsessions or re-watch your favorites. We’re not even saying you have to watch romantic movies or shows, but hey, you can stick to that theme, too!
You can also choose to hang out with your best buds virtually. You can host watching parties on apps like Kast, Kosmi, and Teleparty so that you can watch shows and films together.
We compiled some products to help make your binge-watch session a better experience:
Samsung Soundbar HW-T400 (2020) (PHP 5,799, on sale for PHP 4,499)*
LG Sound Bar SN6Y (PHP 18,990)
Apple iPad Pro (PHP 47,990, on sale for PHP 47,590)
Baseus Encok WM01 (PHP 1,690, on sale for PHP 690)
Get serenaded or serenade someone (sort of)
If you want to try something that reflects the times but still romantic or want to let someone know you love them, @charcuterieboxmnl offers a Virtual Harana with the help of the premier wedding band, 3rd Avenue.
It costs PHP 3,500 to send a charcuterie box to someone with a personalized video message and the serenade. Just because you’re single doesn’t mean you don’t have loved ones to share the love or celebrate with.
And hey, if you want to serenade them yourself, that’ll be even better!
Relax and read
If you prefer a quiet night in, there’s nothing like getting immersed in a beautiful story. Spend Galentine’s reading and relaxing. Light some candles, prep your hot beverage of choice (or alcohol), and get lost in a world that isn’t yours.
Here’s a list of some items that could help make your reading time an even more relaxing time:
Nordic style mug (starting at PHP 100, on sale starting at PHP 50)
Happy Island Lavender Soy Candle (PHP 230)
Happy Island Rechargeable Candle Lighter (PHP 599)
Candle Warmer (PHP 2,499, on sale for PHP 2,309)
Lazy backrest sofa chair (starting at PHP 1,654)
Your greatest love has to be yourself. No, we don’t mean it in a narcissistic way. But it’s true that you need to take care of yourself. Eat right, drink water, exercise, use those face masks you’ve been keeping away, and sleep! We even think it might be great to set up or organize your vanity area.
We think these items or activities can help you during this great day to indulge in some self-care.
MAIA 360° Rotating Makeup Storage Organizer (PHP 799, on sale for PHP 289)
Vanity chair (PHP 1,499, on sale for PHP 1,484)
Holo Teeth Whitening Kit (USD 79.99, around PHP 3,847 and get PHP 500 off with the code ISA500OFF)
And for those who are couples, we hope you have a great and safe Valentine’s Day, too. But please stay within your bubbles and at home. We’re still living through a pandemic after all!
