So, the unavoidable 14th February is less than 48 hours away and you literally have no idea what has to be done – or how you could go through another V-day while being V-single.
Fret not! Go through our list of things to do this Valentine’s day if you are very single and yet wanna have lots of fun, because why not!
And unlike a junk of posts that you will find online that will tell you how you should celebrate this day or “Netflix and chill”, these ideas below have been given by real people, just like you and me!
So sit back, read the different ways to ruffle up your V-day with real ideas from real people!
1. VALENTINE’S DAY OFFERS
Online shopping = retail therapy! Go get that card and shop to your hearts content for some amazing make up combinations and kits. Buy beauty products from Snapdeal at more than 60% off.
If you want to go for something more of a better brand value and options then I definitely recommend the Smashbox collections at Nykaa. Who doesn’t love some lipsticks ya?
2. PLAN AN OUTING WITH YOUR BFF AND DO NOTHING!
Okay this one’s my favourite! When I was in Paris, me and Reme used to literally end up doing nothing – day after day, but we used to roam around quite a bit and fool around too! One of them was, before Halloween we went to the H&M store and clicked selfies and did a whole lot of crazy things! You can do similar stuff – go out with your BFF(s) and act crazy, have wine at 12 in the afternoon or just sit and groan about who invented V-day at allll…. you get the drift.
3. HOUSE PARTAYYYY
Do I need to elaborate? Play one of those games by Ellen and/or trash your ex’s stuff. FUN.
4. COOK SOME MUTTON!
Okay – calm down. I swear this one’s real simple. And if I could make it – so could you – like for sure! SO, click on and decide between a Kolkata Mutton Biryani or a typical Kolkata style Bengali Kosha Mangsho (slow cooked caramelised mutton).
5. BOOK YOUR MOVIE TICKETS!
I recently watched the movie – Ek ladki ko dekha toh aisa laga. If you are in India and you want to catch this movie – book your tickets right now. It’s one movie that feels so relevant and beautiful in today’s times and age! I loved the story, the background, the lightness of the film while dealing with a love that has just been slowly finding its acceptance around the society!
So this Valentine’s Day – Let Love be!
6. IRISH HOUSE
This one’s for the win. If you are in Kolkata, Mumbai or Pune or anywhere with the existence of Irish House – head straight into their Valentine’s Day offer : A week long celebration, lots of pinatas and potent LIIT’s from 8th to 15th February while watching some stand-up comedy or simply hanging out with your friends. If you want to get those tickets for the Stand-up comedy feat. Prashasti Singh & Shaad Shafi at 9 pm at the Irish House Andheri Mumbai, go ahead and get booking!
7. HOT CHOCOLATE AND GOOD OL’ WHISKEY
YUMMY! Dig into some hot chocolate with whipped cream and have a glass of some good scotch or whiskey – or have it both together. Go crazy !
8. HUNT FOR OLD VINTAGE ALCOHOL IF THAT’S YOUR THING
There are flea markets you could get your hands on! In Paris it’s literally everywhere plus they are more like a collectible – so go shopping at the flea market!
9. GO FOR A RANDOM FEEL GOOD PHOTOSHOOT!
Okay, so just because you are single doesn’t mean you and your friend can’t spend the entire day doing photo shoots, posing everywhere possible and getting the best out of a day that was designed to make you feel low.
But you go ahead, wear some good makeup, put on that dress and top and get clicking for some good photos for your gram!
