Here are my top 3 ideas to make the best Valentine’s Day as a single mom as you can.

 

 

Try one of these and make it a Valentine’s Day worthy of you!

 

 

#1 Make It an All About You Valentine’s Day

 

Who knows how to love you better than anyone else?…Well you do!

 

You’re the only person who knows every last little thing about you.  What you like, what you don’t. 

 

You’re the only one who will be with you from the moment you’re born until the moment you die.

 

So how can you show yourself some love this Valentine’s Day?

 

First of all, you are worth getting a sitter!  So do that.  

 

 

This doesn’t have to be at night.  Anytime that will work for what you want to do and when ever you can book someone to watch the kids.

 

Buy yourself flowers.  It doesn’t have to be roses.  Buy a cheerful bouquet that makes you smile.

 

Love chocolates?  Buy those too.  

 

Get dressed up nice.  Do your makeup and hair.  Do what makes you feel sexy.  Treat it like a date.  It is…a date with yourself.

 

Take yourself to lunch.  To a movie. 

 

Go shopping and no I don’t mean to the grocery store.

 

Book a pampering session at the local salon or spa. 

 

Send the kids to the sitter’s instead and enjoy an afternoon or evening at home by yourself with a book and a bubble bath.

 

Struggling for ideas on taking care of you?…try these ideas for self-care.

Whatever it is that you don’t normally do that can make it fun for you.  

 

Don’t underestimate the enjoyment of your own company.  Personally I love going places alone. 

 

You don’t have to pick somewhere that there will be lots of couples.   How about the bookstore or maybe the local home improvement store…two of my favorite places…what ever it is YOU like.

 

#2  Make It a Galentine’s Day

Maybe you have other single friends, maybe you don’t.   

 

But there’s a good chance that at least one of your friends can’t be with the one they love on Valentine’s Day either. 

 

Whatever the reason, having friends to get together with can be fun.   

 

Have a party at someone’s house or go out to dinner and a movie.

 

Make it as fun and crazy as you’re willing.  Take the focus off being alone and realize how fun and exciting life can be.

 

Do a group spa visit or set up a spa party at home.    Do something new and invite a psychic to do readings or have a sex toy party.

 

Use these for your party….

#3 Make a Valentine’s Date with Your Kid

 

If you have more than one, you could do multiple kid dates to make it special. 

 

There are so many reasons we get busy and don’t have a chance to get one-on-one time with our kids.   

 

Try something new they want to do or maybe have been pestering you to try.

 

Take your daughter for a pedicure and lunch.  

 

Finally go to that rock climbing gym with your son.

 

Use the opportunity to show daughters how they should be treated on dates or show sons how to treat a lady on a date.   

 

Stay-at-home dates are fun too.  

 

This is one of our favorite things to do…especially now that it’s winter.
