Treat yourself to a spa day.
Spa days might not be in your budget, but Valentine's Day is a good day to splurge. Carve out some well-deserved "me time" so you can get a massage to release any tension you have been harboring in your body. There are plenty of places that offer discounts, and websites like Groupon also have some great deals.
Celebrate Galentine's Day with your gals.
Galentine's Day is celebrated on February 13, the day before Valentine's Day, and it's the perfect day for the ladies to leave their men at home. Throw a party at your place, or head to brunch with your best girl friends, even the ones in relationships, so you can have a special day to celebrate the strong female friendships you have in your life.
Call up your single friends, and go out for a girls night.
Shake the V-Day blues away on the dance floor! Book a babysitter and head out for a night on the town with your other fellow single moms or friends. There is nothing a little good music and drinks can't fix, so put on your best heels and your prettiest dress, and have some fun!
Treat yourself to a self-care day.
A simple manicure and pedicure can do wonders to brighten your mood. Head to your local nail salon for a Valentine's Day mani-pedi and you'll be feeling good about yourself all week.
Treat your kids and yourself to a special dinner.
Make some reservations at that cool new restaurant you've been meaning to try, or head to your kids' favorite local eatery and have some fun! Order some delicious food and share a delicious dessert, and remind each other of all the love that exists within your little family.
Do some arts and crafts with your little ones.
Have them make V-Day cards and fun arts and crafts for their loved ones and their classmates. It will be a great time to bond, while they also learn to show the people around them that they care.
Buy yourself some flowers!
Everyone deserves flowers on Valentine's Day! They don't have to be red roses, but some fresh flowers will liven up your space and remind you of all the beauty that deserves to be celebrated.
Valentine's Day is also about giving, so get your kids a little treat.
Part of the joy of having a significant other on Valentine's Day is thinking of what to get them on the special day. The same goes for your kids! Gift them a little something special to remind them that they are loved and deserve to be spoiled.
V-Day is all about the sweets.
You don't have to break the bank buying sweets and treats for your kids. Roll up your sleeves and have them help you bake some cookies or a cake so you can all have some special treats to enjoy during the holiday.
Have a moment to yourself to enjoy a sweet treat.
Have a glass of your favorite wine, indulge in a box of your favorite chocolates or candy, or order your favorite takeout food. Any of these things will be so filling, and it will remind your brain and your body that you have a right to enjoy the good things in life.
