How to Have an Amazing Valentine’s Day (With or Without a S.O.)

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Clemson chapter.

Valentine’s Day- you either hate it or love it. No matter how you feel about it, it’s a day we have to get through every year. All the hearts, chocolate, and happy couples might be annoying to some of us while other people love this time of year. Let’s discuss some things that are fun to do during Valentine’s Day, with a significant other or alone.


Baking your favorite cupcakes, cookies, brownies, etc. is always a fun activity, regardless of who you do it with! Go online, find some fun recipes, and try making them. Whether you do it with your significant other, alone, or with some friends, this activity will not disappoint. Plus, you’ll have some delicious treats to eat once you’re done!

Ice Skating

No matter how bad you are at it or how bad your balance is, ice skating is always fun! Not only do you get to learn how to balance and do tricks on your skates, but you can also take cute pictures with your friends or S.O. and spend some quality time with those people. So don’t be afraid of falling (literally everyone at the rink will fall at some point, trust me), go grab some skates, and enjoy some time on the ice.


DIYing things you see on Pinterest, making cards, or making any sort of crafts is an activity that you can enjoy with anyone. Find some interesting things you want to make on Pinterest, and see if you can figure out how to make them (it’s always harder than it looks)! It’s cheap, it’s fun, and it’s a good way to spend some time with someone special or some people that you care about.



I hope you can get through Valentine’s Day with a little bit more ease now that you have some awesome activities to look forward to. No matter if you are spending Valentine’s Day alone or with a significant other, make sure to take some time to appreciate the ones you love. Valentine’s Day is a romantic day (of course), but it’s most importantly a day to show love and appreciation for the people you value.
