Single For Valentine's? Sorted!

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to get your date ON! Now, you’re probably thinking, but I’m single? I say so what! If you’re single you can still have date days/nights with just as much fun and probably half the money. I have rounded up my top 5 things to do if you’re single this Valentine's.

Retail Therapy

I’ve always found that shopping is a lot easier when you’re on your own, as you can go exactly where you want, when you want and as many times as you want. Treat yourself to a couple of things you’ve been lusting after for a while. Make it guilt-free by making sure you use your UNiDAYS® college discount so that you can make some sweet savings. Being single isn’t so bad after all, hey? ‌

‌ Food, Food, Food!

Of course! Whether you’re in the mood for a giant pizza takeout or you fancy getting your glad rags on and going out, food is definitely the way to your heart.

Get Sporty

Doing something sporty like ice-skating, tennis or going on a bike ride is a great way to destress and have some fun. You probably already know that doing exercise and sport releases endorphins, so you’ll definitely have that Friday-feeling. Or, if you’ve been wanting to try something new for a while like pilates, then challenge yourself and find something new to love. And don’t forget that you can save on sports brands like Reebok, Active Ride Shop and Quiksilver if you're in the market for a few new garms too.

'Secret Valentine'

Whoever said that singles couldn’t have Valentine's gifts? Get all your besties on board and put their names into a hat, and then buy whoever you draw out a little ‘non-Valentine's’ gift. It doesn’t have to be expensive, you could set a budget of under $10. This is such a fun way to have a little bit of fun, catch up with your friends and you even get a little gift at the end. Hell yes!


If you don’t want to spend Valentine's day alone, then a party is the answer. Invite all of your single friends or those who can’t go on dates over to your place and let your hair down. Get some cocktails shakin’, food and music going and make the night one to remember. If you want a little bit of party inspo, then head over to our party board on Pinterest.
