I’m going to guess that for a majority of us we have a love/hate relationship with Valentine’s Day. Depending on your relationship status you love it, if you’re single you hate it and then comes the pressure on gifts, dinners, dressing up, you name it. Some might call me crazy, but I suggest celebrating Valentine’s Day with a girls night in. Go out with your hubby or boyfriend/girlfriend any other night of the week (where you won’t pay crazy amounts for a pre fix menu) and opt to spend the actual day with your girls right in your own living room.
Here me out. Trade the dresses and high heels for cozy sweats and slippers, skip the long lines at restaurants with Pho take-out, leave the overpriced chocolate soufflé for pretty macarons and order up a romantic comedy of your choice while sipping on as much wine as you want (sans the corkage fee). You tell me what sounds better?
The best part is that you can spoil your girlfriends with a thoughtful little gift that’ll really make them feel special. I love all the goodies over on PAPYRUS for Valentine’s Day and they even have some bold options like this wine glass below that really tells the world what you think of the traditional Valentine’s Day itinerary.
I share all the details and tips on how to celebrate a Valentine’s Day girls night in over on the PAPYRUS blog today. Hop on over there for the full round up of all the goodies!
Keep Living a Stylized Life.
