Being single on Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a drag. There’s plenty ways to have fun on this over-commercialized holiday. Round up your single girl friends and plan a night out…or in!
Movie Night Pajama Party

Here’s another staying-in activity for you and the gals. It’ the Valentine’s Day edition of the popular holiday game, Secret Santa. Ask everyone to bring a small present for the gift exchange.

The popular Pinterest parties are a creative way to socialize and bond with your group. Party ideas include baking your favorite desserts, DIY spa recipes and lots and lots of crafts! There are plenty of ideas to choose from. Check out this Valentine’s Day Pinterest board for more ideas. These parties pair up well with a bottle of wine, too. J Cost: $10-30
Plan a girls night out (GNO) on Valentine’s Day or on the following weekend. Have the girls dress their best and get ready to take on the town! Whether it’s dining at your favorite restaurant, stopping by wine bars, or dancing the night away, your group will stay engaged all night. Remember to make reservations if it’s needed where you’re going. Cost: $20+ per person (depending on how fancy you want to get)
Shop ‘til you drop
What girl doesn’t like to shop? Swing by the food court to grab some pizza and cookies, stop in the mall salon for a quick manicure or shop around for new clothes, of course! Spending a few hours at the mall with your girl friends is a great time to catch up with each other and do really girly things. Cost- depends on your taste of style!
Who says cookie exchange parties are limited to Christmas? Or, why not have a few friends over to make some fabulous desserts. These DIY arrows from Sweet Occasion would make great toppers for cupcakes or brownies.
