Celebrating Valentines Week with friends

Valentine’s Week is a celebration of love, but it isn’t for BAEs only. It’s is also a week to remember all the love you have in your life, which includes your wonderful family and friends. Here are a few ways to celebrate with your besties this year.

Create Crafts


Show your friends how much you care by sending them DIY Valentine’s crafts. This can be anything from a handwritten card, scrapbook or photo collage of your favourite moments together.

Plan a Picnic


There’s just something about being outdoors that makes everything feel better. Have each of your friends bring a snack for a picnic, then head to a nearby park or hike to a scenic spot to watch the sunset. Just remember to be vigilant and stay safe. It’s a good idea to round up a group of friends for this activity.

Pick a night during “Valentine’s Week” and gather up all your favourite cheesy romantic movies, tons of snacks, and of course, tissues for that perfect rom-com!

Tasting Party


Valentine’s is all about chocolate and everything sweet! You can take advantage of all these yummy treats by hosting a tasting party. You and your friends can all make a variety of desserts and meet up at one of your homes. This is a great way to celebrate Valentine’s Week with friends who have a sweet tooth!

Game Night


Why not plan a game night with friends? Game nights offer some friendly competition, lots of laughs, and they’re a great way to spend some quality time together.

Celebrating with your besties who support you through thick and thin is always a good idea, and setting aside time to spend together is a great way to remind them how much you care. What will you and your friends be doing for Valentine’s Week? Comment some of your plans down below!
