Well, that time of year is next week – when those in love, or just freshly into a relationship, wonder if they will be surprised at the office with a bouquet of flowers or if maybe a foot rub is in the cards after a home-cooked meal. If you find yourself single, there’s no reason you shouldn’t be made to feel special on this V-Day – even if your significant other is…well, yourself!
For the Homebody
Plan an at-home date with yourself. Light some candles, put on some of your favorite chill tunes, indulge in some flowers, pour a glass of rose and draw yourself a nice bath to unwind. There’s plenty you can do to treat yourself! Pampering yourself shouldn’t be limited to Valentines Day – look to incorporate a date night with yourself at least once a month. You’re worth it!

For the Social Butterfly
You might be the last (wo)man standing right now, the last of the singletons amongst your friends. That doesn’t meant you can’t treat yourself to a night out of the town. There’s nothing wrong with going out solo, and, who knows, you might find yourself having a dirty martini at the bar with someone interesting! Indulge yourself in some fun clothes and accessories that you can wear out – and will carry through to the Spring.

For the Techie
If you’re not the type to want to have a sensual solo evening or a night out with your awesome self, then you might just want to treat yourself to a cool gift that will leave the light on for you when you’re working late. The Phillips Hue Wifi lights are not only a great way to get into the whole Smart Home craze, but they are also super convenient! You can turn on your lights remotely via your smart phone, no matter where you are. You can also dim them from your phone or set them on a timer for when you know you won’t be coming home (heyyy there, you vixen, you…)
Philips Hue Starter Kit, $169.00
So whoever you are, whatever your relationship status, make sure to prioritize some time for you on this Valentines Day!
