Happy V-Day! What’s got you feeling the love today or have you sort of… kind of… forgotten all about Valentine’s Day? Not to worry - whether you’re current status is solo, coupled up or it’s complicated, here’s a few last minute date ideas to bring some of that lurrrve your way on V-Day.
FLICKS WITH THE CHICKS
Valentine’s Day is the perfect excuse to cry into a tub of Messina arrange a popcorn date with your besties. Our pick is the new Rebel Wilson flick, How to be Single, which is full of LOLs. Alternatively, a movie date with your main squeeze is an affordable way to cuddle up without going cray-cray on the grand gesture stuff.
STAY IN BED ALL DAY
As the old saying goes, “a Sunday well spent brings a week of content,” translation: staying in bed all day long is perfectly acceptable. And since V-Day happens to fall on a Sunday, there’s no better time to escape all those gooey-eyed couples roaming the streets than by building a doona fort and binge-watching Making a Murderer on Netflix. Or, if you happen to be one half of a gooey-eyed couple, then you’re guaranteed a full day of snuggling and snacks. Bliss!
PICNIC WITH YOUR PERSON
If you’re looking for a cheap and cute way to spend V-Day without splashing the cash on a five-course meal that costs three months’ pay, a picnic is the way to go. Pick up some cheese and biccies from the posh part of the supermarket, or simply grab your favourite takeaway and sprawl out on the grass or sand. Extra points if you can time it for when the sun sets. Naww.
BRUNCH WITH YOUR CRUSH
It’s just a little crush, so maybe a little brunch? Treat your bae to a breakfast of champions, because nothing says “I think you’re da bomb diggity” like some smashed avo on toast. Feeling flirty? Add a few Bloody Marys to the mix and spend the rest of the day in bed, which is how Sundays should be spent (see point 2).
AN UNDIES RUN
Say what? You read right. If you’ve got nothing else planned for today then why not strip off and join thousands of others in the Cupid’s Undie Run to raise some money for charity? This year, Bonds is a proud sponsor of the annual fundraiser, in which participants run 1.5km(ish) in nothing but their undies, to support the Children’s Tumor Foundation. Plus, it’s great for meeting people – hint, hint! Read more here.
