Valentine’s Day Alternatives

If you want to skip the traditional chocolates this year, go ahead. There are plenty of other ways to celebrate Valentine’s Day, whether you are coupled up, single or getting together with friends.


Couples looking for something other than a prix fixe dinner on Valentine’s Day have plenty of options. Stay in and snuggle with your favorite foods and have a movie marathon. Or head to someplace you’ve never been before, like an art-gallery opening or try dinner and a play for a riff on a movie outing. Maybe even pretend to be an out-of-towner for the day and visit a local landmark and take a couples picture to mark the occasion.


For singles looking to meet other singles, check out local happenings. Some cities have gatherings to celebrate un-Valentine’s Day, while other parties look at the day to find love. You can also just get a group of friends together and head to your local watering hole for remembering past Valentine’s Days and commiserating about your current “singledom.” Or celebrate your solo status and buy yourself a Valentine’s Day present.


Whether you are planning a multi-couples date or a party with couples and singles, Valentine’s Day is a great excuse for a get-together. Divide up tasks like decorating and cooking and enjoy a stay-at-home date with your closest friends.


Volunteer. Not everyone has the chance to feel loved on Valentine’s Day. Forgo your usual celebrations and head to your local soup kitchen or nonprofit organization and give the gift of your time. Another good way to spread the love is to send flowers to your local senior center or home. Your thoughtfulness and generosity are sure to be appreciated and the warm memories you make will last longer than just the meal or lifespan of the bouquet.


Get together with your closest girlfriends and have a girls’ night in. Discover some Valentine’s Day DIY projects online and make something special that you exchange at the end of the night. Or get all glammed up and head to a fancy restaurant for some catching up and good food.

No matter how you choose to spend your Valentine’s Day, Icing On The Ring has the perfect accessory for staying in or going out. For more ideas, including finding the perfect Valentine’s Day gift for your host or hostess, call or stop by our store in the Los Angeles Jewelry District.
