Embrace the season of love with open arms! This Valentine’s Day, we want to focus on what makes us happy by doing the things we love and practicing self-love! Although expressing our affection to others is important, it’s just as important to take care of ourselves and love who we are as a person. Self-love is the most precious gift you can give yourself. Sometimes that means putting a busy life on pause, sitting down, and relaxing with your favourite foods, shows, music, books, you name it!
Check out the list below for some fun ideas for how to treat yourself this Valentine’s Day!
1. Treat Yourself to Your Favourite Take Out Dinner
Food is truly the way to the heart - even for yourself! Call your favourite take-out restaurant and place a delivery order. Get changed into your coziest pjs (we recommend a soft bamboo fabric, like our Marcie Lounge Set!), kick back, and relax!
2. Bake a Sweet Dessert
Search for some new fun and easy desserts to try specially for Valentine’s Day! Whether you’re feeling chocolate cupcakes, or a simpler dessert such as chocolate covered strawberries, it’s time to satisfy your sweet tooth! Practicing self-love starts with taking care of ourselves and doing the things that make us happy - Valentine’s Day is a perfect reason to indulge in some sweets we’ve been craving. Grab a cup of tea and find a cozy spot to curl up and enjoy your treat!
3. Book a Solo Spa Trip
A fantastic way to unwind is by visiting a spa - book yourself a massage, sit in the sauna, and relax in the whirlpools. The calming atmosphere and scents used provides a wonderful environment for us to reflect and focus on becoming our best selves and truly love ourselves! If you’re heading to the spa, don’t forget to bring a change of comfy clothes, like bamboo leggings and a cozy bamboo fleece sweatshirt (and the essentials: bamboo underwear and a bamboo bralette) to change into!
4. Have a Movie / TV Series Marathon
If you’re looking for the best way to relax but also do something you enjoy, why not have a movie or tv show marathon? This is a great way to enjoy the things you love - prepare some of your favourite snacks, turn on your favourite movie saga or show, and get to watching! Whether it’s the ‘Twilight’ series or the TV show ‘Friends’, this is a fantastic way to sit down, relax, and enjoy something you love.
5. Take a Warm Bath with your Favourite Scents
Something as simple as running a warm bath with soothing scents can have a positive impact! Take a break from the busyness of life by taking time in the evening to prepare a warm bath with cozy relaxing smelling scents, light a candle and dim the lights, and enjoy the moment to yourself! Wrap yourself in a super soft bamboo towel and change into the coziest bamboo loungewear (like a bamboo pajama set or bamboo bralette with bamboo leggings) to complete this cozy evening.
In this season of hearts and roses, remember that love begins within. One must love themselves before they can love others, so this Valentine’s Day, celebrate your quirks, strength, and your unique path. Whether you treat yourself to a relaxing day at the spa, a movie marathon, or a delicious dessert, know that you are worthy of love both from others and yourself!
