Every year around Valentine’s Day, the same question pops up: how do you make the day special?
Especially since this year, as for Halloween, the celebrations will take place at home. With a bit of imagination, it’s easy to do things a bit differently and make your Valentine’s Day a really special day.
Here are 7 ways to celebrate this day dedicated to love at home and differently, whether you’re in a relationship or single.
If you’re single
1 - A bit of self-care
Valentine’s Day is a celebration of love. And love should first and foremost be about loving yourself.
Because the most important person in the world (whether you want to admit or not), is you! Take advantage of this day to treat yourself right :
- Take a bubble bath with candles around the tub or pamper yourself with a home spa session.
- Treat yourself to a moment of relaxation with local beauty products
- Settle in with your favourite book and hot cocoa
- Meditate, breath, relax...
- Watch your favourite Friends episodes for the 20th time while snuggled up in your favourite blanket
- Write yourself a poem or a love letter (yes, to yourself!)

2 - A gift exchange with friends
A great way to feel good is to spend some time with the loved ones in your life. Get your best friends together during a virtual call to celebrate your friendship!
During the call, pick the name of the person with whom you are going to exchange a gift, then have the gift delivered directly to your friend's home. And why not wink at your friend by giving him or her a gift that symbolises your friendship?
Here are some gift ideas:
- Bracelets Déesse Léa ou Manifestation de Grace
- Bracelet Fay with love
- 24w Led/Uv Nail Lamp from Looky to recall all the good times shared at the nail salon
- Starting Kit from Nail Creation
Exchange cards that promise the recipient a small gesture they’ll appreciate: cook them meals for a week or teach them about a topic you master

3 - A new hobby
Take advantage of Valentine's Day to try out a new activity, a new recipe or discover a new hobby. It’ll clear your mind and can stimulate creativity and improve your mood.
Try some home baking, make your own face cream with essential oils, or learn power yoga, watercolour painting, or latte art. No matter what you choose to do, trying something new will do you immense good, and who knows, you might even discover a new passion.

4 - A good deed
Volunteer a few hours of your time to someone who needs help or a charity. Or simply do a good deed, such as shovelling the snow from your neighbour’s entrance or complimenting a stranger. They might seem trivial, but small gestures like these have the power to make someone’s day better. And giving can be as satisfying as receiving.
If you’re in a relationship
1 - Disconnect from the digital world
Spend quality time together. Disconnect yourself from the digital world! Keep your mobile phone away, turn off your computer, don't consult your social networks. Make time for the two of you, as if you were alone in the world. It is your chance to get away:
- take a walk or walk the dog together without being disturbed by a notification,
- or go snowshoeing, skating, sliding or playing in the snow.
Get dressed warmly and go out. Create new memories to share! And at the end of the day, symbolically offer your heart with a box of chocolate.
- Heart-Shaped Box of Fine Chocolates With Hazelnuts from Ferrero Rocher
- Assorted Milk Chocolates from Lindt
2 - Cooking as a couple
Seize the opportunity to cook for two. Make something out of the ordinary! Cook together a dish you've never tried before or a meal inspired by a new ingredient or one of your travels.
You can also create a four-course menu of aphrodisiacs. Split up the task by cooking two dishes each, unaware of what the other is cooking for you. Play your favourite music while you cook and enjoy reconnecting with your lover.
For dessert, treat yourself to a chocolate fondue!
3 - Spa session at home
Why not organize a romantic spa evening for two? It's the perfect way to escape and enjoy a romantic moment without leaving your cozy nest. Treat yourself to a fragrant bath and candles, a salon-style massage and your favourite relaxing playlist.
