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!
We compiled some products to help make your binge-watch session a better experience:
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:
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.
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!
