Valentine’s Day (and Galentine’s Day) is fast approaching! It’s a day to celebrate love, whether that be with your significant other, or with your friends and family. Some people love Valentine’s Day and some people hate it, but let’s face it, no-one can avoid it. As soon as February starts, shops turn pink and red and begin to fill with roses trying to get you to buy into what they are selling (usually overpriced) to give to your significant other. However, chocolates, flowers, and jewelry, although absolutely lovely, can sometimes get a bit repetitive, and what do you buy for a man?!
I am someone who likes Valentine’s Day but doesn’t fill the need to buy expensive gifts for people that they may use once then put it in a drawer and forget about it. Valentine’s/Galentine’s should be a time where you can spend some quality time together with your significant other, and if your single its a great excuse to get together with your friends and do something you all love, whether that be party, go on an adventure or just have a cozy night in.
Seeing as Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, I thought I’d share with you all a load of ideas for ‘date night’s’ or even just to do with your friends! So without further ado, here is my ‘A to Z Date Night Challenge’.
