Being Single on Valentine’s Day—A Survival Guide

Valentine's Day sometimes seems like it's all about couples – couples' events, romantic dinners, and even two-for-one specials at the spa. So what's a single girl to do? Without a husband or boyfriend to surprise you with breakfast in bed and a fantastic Valentine's Day gift, you might think your Valentine's Day has to be a romantic-comedy marathon and Chinese food on the couch. But Valentine's Day gifts and Valentine's Day do not just have to be about celebrating the guy in your life, so if you're single, you can still have a special Valentine's Day all on your own. Look at Valentine's Day not just as a celebration of romance but as a time to reflect on all the love in your life–your friends, your family, and even your love and appreciation of your own self! That's right–if you're single this V-Day, celebrate the day with a special Valentine's Day gift for yourself. So this February 14th, there is no need to pity your single self–pop on your gorgeous jewelry gift to yourself and go dancing!

At, there are tons of options for the fabulous single lady looking to treat herself to a jewelry gift for Valentine's Day. You can opt for a sexy and sparkling right hand ring to show the world your independence, or choose a delicate but gorgeous diamond pendant necklace that will add an elegant touch to your best outfit. It's been said before, but it's worth saying again – you don't need a man to buy diamond jewelry for you. Choosing your own piece of diamond jewelry, for a Valentine's gift or anytime, can be one of the most liberating experiences you will ever experience in a store or shopping website.

Treat yourself. Get together with some girlfriends (or go by yourself) and head to your favorite spa for an indulgent session of manicures and massages. Linger over the latest celeb gossip magazine, stop in for a no-hold-barred cappucino, or have an hours-long phone-a-thon with your best friend. Taking some time to do something for yourself can be the best Valentine's Day gift you can give yourself. Don't be afraid to try something new–sign up for a cooking class, or go out to the hot new bar with friends. Remember, there are single guys on Valentine's Day – and you never know where you might bump into one!
Take the time on Valentine's Day afternoon to finish all those things you started and never finished. Sit down and work out your budget for the year, redecorate your living room, or start that workout you've been meaning to try. Valentine's Day is close enough to New Year's that if you started a resolution a month ago, it's not too late to pick it back up and keep it going this time. Don't get stuck in the past and what you don't have this year; focus on the future and all the wonderful things you do have in your life. Buying yourself a jewelry gift on Valentine's is a great way of reminding yourself that you've got a lot going for you – even if you aren't currently dating. You are an independent women who can buy herself a stunning piece of diamond jewelry as a gift for Valentine's Day–no man necessary.

But all that love and positivity isn't just for yourself. Remember when you were little and brought Valentine's Day cards for the whole class? Revive that tradition with funny cards and cute, thoughtful little Valentine's gifts for all the people who brighten your life, from your best friend to the coworker who you eat lunch with every day. It's a great way to expand the circle of Valentine's Day cheer from just boyfriend-girlfriend stuff to a whole range of friends and family. Don't forget the kids in your life–your neices and nephews will love nothing more than a Valentine's Day card from their new favorite aunt.
And save some of that Valentine's Day festivity for your closest circle of friends. Invite all your single friends over for a fabulous night of cocktails and diet-friendly appetizers. Play ex-boyfriend-bashing games or declare the night a guy-free zone and talk only about shoes and movies. Celebrating the people who really matter in your life can be the greatest Valentine's Day gift you can give yourself.
