14 Best Ways to Show Someone You Love Them on Valentine’s Day (Even if You’re Single)
It can be difficult to think of some great gift ideas for that loved one of yours this Valentine’s Day. Whether you are single or in a committed relationship, I’ve thought of the 14 best ways to show someone you love them on Valentine’s Day (even if you’re single).
14 Best Ways to Show Someone You Love Them on Valentine’s Day (Even if You’re Single)…
1. Spend the day with them
Nothing says I love you like spending time with someone; we can’t get time back once it’s gone so spend some time with the person you love.
2. Cook for them or take them out to eat
If you can cook (I can’t), it’s nice to cook something for someone. But if you can’t cook, taking them out to eat is nice, too. Maybe to their favorite restaurant!
3. Get them a card
A card is one of my favorite gifts to give and receive because it’s so meaningful and I feel that it is the best way to express your love for someone. Get a simple card, it’s a great gift.
4. Tell them you love them
Easy enough, tell the person you care about that you love them! Everyone likes to feel appreciated, so let that person know and tell them you’re grateful for them.
5. Bake them cookies or cupcakes
I personally love baking, so baking cookies or cupcakes or a cake for someone would be perfect for me. Baking with love is always a recipe for deliciousness.
6. Get them flowers
Flowers are beautiful and make for a great gift for anyone. Getting someone flowers can be a sweet gesture to show you love them.
7. Make them a collage of your favorite pictures
Whether it’s pictures of the two of you or even just pictures that you enjoy, making someone something always shows them that you took time out of your life to create something for them.
8. Make them a mix CD
BEST and AMAZING idea. I love getting mix CD’s and getting one for Valentine ’s Day would be just perfect.
9. Take them on a picnic
Outside in this gorgeous weather, eating some sandwiches and snacks and just hanging out would be a cute, fun way to spend Valentine’s Day with that loved one of yours.
10. Go to the movies
Going to see a new movie in theaters is always a treat for anyone, pick something that the person you love would enjoy seeing and surprise them with tickets to the movies.
11. Pamper your friend with a manicure/pedicure or day at the spa
This would be a gift I’d love to receive, a nice day at the spa or getting a manicure and pedicure would be a lovely present.
12. Get them chocolate
Chocolate=life. Whether it’s Valentine’s Day or not, I’ll take chocolate as a gift any day of the week. Definitely makes me happy to eat sweets.
13. Send them a sweet and loving text message
Sometimes just sending a sweet and loving text can be enough to let someone know you care. Tell the person you love them with some cute emoji’s!
14. And most importantly, take care of yourself first and foremost! If you don’t love yourself, you can’t love anyone else!
If you don’t love yourself and put you first, you can’t love others! Make sure you take care of you this Valentine’s Day and treat yourself, too. To be sober and successful in our recovery we need to put us and our program first. Take some time to relax, meditate, take a nap, read or whatever it is that makes you happy!
