Most of us? We’re saving ourselves for the one. If you’d rather spend Valentine’s Day watching Netflix than trolling Tinder for another awful date, we’re right there with you.
Just because you’re single doesn’t have to mean you can’t make it fun. Here are a couple of Valentine’s Day ideas for a great night at home.
1. Chef It Up at Home
We love to throw down in the kitchen. Valentine’s Day alone is the ultimate excuse to turn up, no take-out required.
If you don’t cook already, there is no better time to start—namely, with a generous and thoughtful Valentine’s Day gift to yourself. You don’t necessarily need to invest in an entirely new smart kitchen set-up, although we can confirm that a designer kitchen is, in fact, awesome.
Those who are low-key and trying to keep things lean might consider a smart air fryer for their countertop. Other culinary treats for yourself could include a new meal subscription service or any of a number of cool kitchen gadgets.
2. Take a Virtual Art Tour
Museums like the Getty and the Louvre, The Sistine Chapel, and even sites like Google Arts and Culture have all got you covered. There’s nothing like exploring some of the greatest triumphs in pan-human culture to shake off the “single-on-Valentine’s-Day” blues.
For the full experience, you can try The Frame, Samsung’s most stylish offering in contemporary entertainment gear. It makes every exhibition feel so close to home, you’ll basically be able to taste the turpentine.
3. A Giant Widescreen TV for One, Please
Spending Valentine’s Day single is enough to send anybody on a shopping bender. If you’re one to indulge in retail therapy when you’re down, why not take this opportunity to upgrade your entire home entertainment system?
There is no time to spoil yourself like when you’re single on the national day of love and togetherness—a new TV or display, some premium sound gear, and perhaps even a new comfy seating arrangement may all be in order.
If you’ve got the space and the budget, we recommend going big and bold here. A larger-than-life Samsung QLED? An 86″ UHD display from LG? Whatever floats your boat, man. Both are currently being offered at a steep discount, just in time for both the Super Bowl and your big night in.
