2. Beauty Treatments

You can score a session anywhere in Singapore, so book for microdermabrasion session, lift therapy treatments, or aromatherapy facials on this special day. Afterward, tell the world that you don’t need Valentine’s date to look your absolute finest.
3. Wardrobe Update
Remember that gorgeous red dress you saw at the mall last weekend? We say leave your excuses at home and hit the shopping mall to update your wardrobe. The reward from your retail therapy will not only make you feel beautiful on the outside but inside too. Yes, the same rule applies to that branded handbag you’ve been eyeing on.
4. Weekend Getaway
If the sight of lovey-dovey couples annoys you, Valentine’s weekend is a great time to hit the road for a girl’s trip to a new city. Whether it’s a cultural getaway or a shopping weekend, you and your besties decide the course of your holiday. Trust us, you’re going to have so much fun that you will forget that it’s Valentine’s Day.
5. Fancy Dinner
Why sulk at home with a tub of ice cream when you can take yourself out for an expensive three-course dinner? Skip Valentine’s Day and book a seat at your favorite restaurant the night after for your gastronomic treat. For dinner, match the fanciest main course with your favorite dessert, and enjoy them with a glass of wine. The best part of this dinner date? You can savor it all to yourself.
Celebrating Valentine’s Day as a singleton in Singapore is hardly a daunting experience. With radiating positivity and the right mindset, you can make the best out of this special day with a relaxing spa day, a fun girl’s getaway, and an expensive fancy dinner.
