Valentines Day can be a hit or miss for a lot of people. But I see it as a great way to do something cute and fun, whether you’re single or not! If you’re like me and taking on Valentine’s Day solo this year, here are three things to do on Valentine’s Day when you’re single!
Cook or Bake!
There’s nothing like good food on a holiday, and Valentine’s Day shouldn’t be any different! There are so many cute Valentine’s Day recipes online for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, but my personal fave is dinner! I found some cute Valentine’s Day recipes here that are super cute and easy to make! Pair your meal with a good glass of wine and you’re all set. For dessert, you’ll definitely want to pick up the BEST chocolate chip cookies ever from Trader Joe’s! They’re super yummy and all you have to do is throw them in the oven! I made them for my Fab Grad Vision Board Party, which you can read about here.
Hang Out with Friends!
You don’t have to spend Valentine’s Day alone! Call up your friends and have a girls night in or out! You can cook and bake together, then watch a romantic comedy, like Love and Basketball or Brown Sugar! Fun fact about me: I LOVE watching Black romance movies! It’s literally one of my favorite things to do! I found an awesome list of them here that you and your friends can start binge watching on V-Day! OR make it a girls night out and grab drinks at a local restaurant or bar, just be sure to call ahead for reservations if it’s a popular spot!
Create An At-Home Spa!
Sometimes Valentines Day is a good reminder to love and pamper yourself. An at-home spa can do just the trick! I love making a warm bath and lighting candles while I read a book or listen to my favorite smooth R&B music. No bathtub? That’s okay! Grab a great body scrub, a moisturizing shower gel, a good smelling body butter, and your favorite face mask! Take a warm shower with soothing spa music and take how ever long you need to just relax.

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day, filled with love, fun, and relaxation! Be sure to follow me on Instagram (@thefabgrad) to see which idea I choose for Valentine’s Day this year!
