Ways to Celebrate Valentine’s Day

Do you have plans for Valentine’s Day? It’s the perfect day to say ‘I love you’ and ‘you matter’ – to yourself, your friends and your significant other. If you are stumped for ideas on what to do this February 14th, we have some suggestions for you to try, no matter who you are spending the day with. 

To celebrate by yourself, embrace kindness:

You’ll make Valentine’s Day extra special for complete strangers and we think there is something especially sweet about that if you spend the day doing random acts of kindness. You’ll also feel great about spending the day doing something thoughtful. What are some ideas you can do?

  • Pay for the coffee of the person behind you in the coffee shop drive through
  • Volunteer for a couple of hours with a local organization
  • Shovel your neighbour’s driveway

To celebrate with friends, remind them what they mean to you

BeautyGram friendsOne of the things we love about our friends is that we can be ourselves whether we are dressing up to head to a fancy restaurant for dinner, or putting on our comfiest clothing from our closet to chill on the couch and watch Netflix.  Your friends are the people you turn to on good and bad days. To make the day extra special these important people, write notes about what makes them so special to you. Give the notes when you get together, text the messages throughout the day or include one with a BeautyGram.

To celebrate with your significant other,

If you haven’t made dinner reservations to your favourite restaurant, now is the time to call and hope it’s not too late.  Can’t get a table? Valentine’s Day with your significant other is the perfect time to explore somewhere new. To try something different, and special, with your partner; here’s how: Each of you can add a few ‘date night’ ideas into two jars – one for food and drink ideas, the other for activities. Then, draw one from each jar and plan to spend the night following the suggested activity.

We don’t need a special occasion to tell the people in our lives how much they mean to us, or to ensure we are filling our own hearts with actions that make us happy, but Valentine’s Day is a wonderful time to be romantic, spontaneous and thoughtful. If you need the perfect gift for best gal pal, your spouse or yourself, send a BeautyGram. You can custom create the perfect gift and include a personalized note.

If you are in the Calgary area, BeautyGrams are being delivered on Valentine’ Day!
