How to Celebrate Valentine's Day with Friends

How to Celebrate Valentine's Day with Friends

Valentine's Day doesn't have to be a thing or couples, celebrate it with your friends this year!
Imogen Jeffries

Single on Valentine's Day? Don't worry about it! Spend the day with your friends instead. Because friendship is love, too.

When Valentine's Day rolls around, many people feel pressure to either A) be in a relationship, or B) take their loved one out for an extravagant night of wine'ing and dining.

But what if we told you that you could avoid standing in dinner lines, purchasing generic Valentine's Day chocolates for your significant other, or getting to know a new person over a heavy meal and too much wine - that can deem one of the most awkward evenings of your life? We hone in on the idea that Valentine's Day is also an opportune moment to share an amazing experience with some of the most important people in your life: your friends.

A 10-year study revealed that having a great network of friends is just as important as having a nurturing family, and partner. Having a key group of friends also is beneficial for your stress levels, heart health, and self-esteem. Clearly, friends are important, so why not show them a bit of love this year?

Just like in primary school when Valentine's Day was marked by a card exchange amongst your friends and classmates, we believe in bringing back the ode to friendship on Valentine's Day. Have a little scroll for Gift Ideas if you're looking to rebuild friendships, have a laugh, or simply looking to enjoy a drink or two to avoid any Valentine's Day blues.
